I think you've answered your own question

It should be. It's the best teller of who wins the FO of the 3 claycourt masters. This year was no exception...

To most of us outside America, Monte Carlo is the most prestigious Masters' event, and, as has been said before, produces more RG winners than any of the other clay court Masters.

why do you form that view on the basis of the number of americans that show up for it?

hey i got a joke, what is the difference between a sporting world championship held in the US as opposed to one in England?

England invite other countries to participate

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

It's not trendy and gamblers joke was not exactly serious.

It's ok to have a go at French crowds booing then?

I always refer to baseball finals as the "National Club Championships.'' My American friends say that no-one else could compete anyway, but I sure would like to see the Dominican Republic v US.

Overreacting again I see, it's an honour from someone of your status to call me a bore.

Re: why is monte carlo masters not given much recognition?

I think the real reason no one plays there is because it is soo close to Miami MS. The conditions suck there as well, but, I don't think that factors when people decide whether or not to play there.

How do the conditons suck when they are the closest to RG out of any of the clay events?

Well, it's right by the sea. The cool ocean breeze blows in, so it's windy, cold, heavy and wet.

It's definitly not sunny and calm...
