shit tennis masters

im sorry for the lingo guys, but c'mon, the masters this year is crap.

NO MARAT, NO AGASSI, NO NADAL, NO RODDICK, NO HEWITT, and almost no federer.

Believe me, i do feel for those players with injury, as they want to still be playing tennis.

BUT STILL , its gotta be annoyin someone else out there...

Nieminen- The lucky lefty of tennis.
Sampras- The hairy champion of tennis.
Ferrero- The mosquito of tennis.
Srichaphan- The Thai- ger of tennis.
Safin - The of tennis.
Bagdatis- The quotesman of tennis "my coach will watch, i will sleep with my girlfriend"
Kiefer- The naive guy, "yeh, me and seb are good friends"
Santoro- The double handed wizard of tennis.
Lopez- IS my hair right? IS my lipstick right?
Moya- The tatoo and muscles of tennis (although nadal kicks his ass in that department).
Tipsarevic- The tatoo of tennis, competing with moya.
Djokovic- Stole Jiri's surname

Sorry if I left out your favourite, just PM me to let me know-- thanks.

Re: shit tennis masters

I don't see why shortening ths season would prevent this from happening if you look each of these player's 2005 season.

Safin : he virtually dissapeared after the AO, and his season basically ended after Wimbledon (his knee was hurting before Wimbledon even)
Hewitt : for obvious reasons
Roddick : he has hardly played since the US Open after which he took a long time off.
Nadal : he played way too many optionals he didn't need to play in. I guess next year he will not make this mistake again.
Agassi : well we'll just have to get used to the Masters Cup without him soon anyway

Re: shit tennis masters

There have been some very good matches; Nalbandian vs. Federer, Ljubicic vs. Federer, Puerta vs. Gonzalez. We have 2 matches which should both be close to determine the final semi-finalists. Admittedly, a number of players, Coria and Puerta, have found themselves to be out of their depth with this calibre of players. But Coria was grouped with 3 very high calibre players.

Nadal plays Madrid fine and now he is hurt , Agassi too old , Hewitts wife wont even have baby this week +does he really want to see a being born, its not a pretty site .

I don't question your reasoning, just the "could of" phrase...

Re: shit tennis masters

If you want to judge the cup for the players, yeah this TMC sucks.
If you want to judge the cup for the matches, we have a pretty good TMC going on.

Re: shit tennis masters

It will be easier to decide if this year was bad after it has finished. However, the round robin matches have been better than last year. One semi-final and the final last year were both one sided.

Actually the Roddick-Safin, Roddick-Henman, Safin-Henman, Hewitt-Moya, Federer-Moya and Federer-Safin matches were all rather entertaining, with Hewitt-Roddick being a sentimental favorite of mine for the entertainment value (great contribution by Rodick's volleys)...

Besides, at least you knew the real elite attended the event, unlike this year's joke.
I find it weird people even dare to compare - such a tournament isn't measured by the same standards other tournaments are, "nice" matches aren't enough - the quality of the field is what matters.

For someone who wants to be a father, nothing could keep them from being there.

Besides, I have liked a lot of the matches so far, even Davydenko v Gaudio was highly entertaining stuff.

Re: shit tennis masters

Hard to complain when the surface is Dangerous. I'm more annoyed that Roger is taking the risk of playing, than I am that the others pulled out.

And don't get down on Safin for it. He simply Must Not Play Period.
