IMO, games on clay courts are much better: You can see long and pretty good rallies, earning points requires more than just strenght or fast serves, you need more technique.
I think there should be an equal number of clay and hard courts tournaments which should help to have a more realistic ranking. There's no doubt Federer and Nadal should be top 2, but the rest...
Tennis Masters Cup is not Hard Courts and 6 of 9 TMS are not hard courts. Cincy,Canada,IW and Miami are only hard courts.
so its 4/9 HC 3/9 on Clay and 2/9 Indoor. pretty even to me, they need a 3rd Indoor to even it out, take one away from HC.
