Why Puerta? Haven't you heard about DC in Australia?

I think there are many worse players on grass... especially from the bottom of the ranking I guess...

Well Mariano is yet to win a singles match on it, I have high hopes he will do next year though.

I'd include Ricardo Mello on that list.

No Safin, as this year he reached a final and started to feel comfortable on it, but Lopez knew him inside out.

True, but he's still far from being comfortable on grass.

It depends what we're going on. For a guy as talented as he is, he's not good on grass. But there are many worse grass-courters around on the ATP.

Has Costa retired yet? He was hopeless on grass.

How many "Top 10...." threads are you going to keep setting up?

Top 10 is too many...Top 5 is more like it.

Puerta vs. Burgsmuller was absolutely brutal. I only got to see a couple of points but Puerta just couldn't move around at all on the stuff and couldn't return serve off of the bounces to save his life.
