Is Miami starting to feel like a joke event?

I mean you have two huge superstars of tennis not even bothering to show up. Nole tanking today. Players withdrawing left and right. Plus with clay season coming it feels like generally players don't give a crap. It is a very disappointing tournament from fan's point of view. In IW we had Delpo's dramatic run, Nadal's epic comeback, another Fedal match and lots of decent matches overall. Miami feels very mediocre and lifeless with wind, crappy conditions and general lack of excitement.

Thoughts?

Yes a change for once is so bad, forget all those hypocrites that cry about the depth of the field. Tennis is only about the top 4. Heck, starting from 2014, anyone not ranked in the top 4 is banned from ATP events to keep people like Topspindoctor from wetting their pants.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

You and the sponsors might feel that way,but pretty sure the neutral will be happy the way this tournament is shaping up,not the usual suspects deep into the tournament

No, it's never as good as Indian Wells but it still could be decent. A Murray/Berdych match would be good.

Madrid, last year is what a joke tournament is, not this.

HKz answered this for you. I'm done with the top 4, they bore me. So it will be even better when Murray's out

Everyone except Melzer is in the top 20. Every quarter-finalist has been a top10 player and only Gilles Simon hasn't been to a grand slam semi-final; they have all done well at masters tournaments before this one.

Not whining it's a legit observation. Miami is looking pretty crappy right now

Well the withdrawal of Fedal didn't help the event. But like some others have stated it's a change up from just about every event these days where the top 4 dominates. I find Haas' win refreshing and it doesn't exactly make your sig look good.

It's a change but not for the better. I mean you could say the Federer vs Nadal match in IW was disappointing, but it was still more exciting than seeing Mandy Simug and Melzer in closing stages of masters event
