his most impressive wins are on clay at hamburg, where he beats gaudio, coria, and other clay maestros.
Sure, I agree to a certain extent but even the weaker fields have greater quality than some of the tournaments Connors won.
Halle has Nadal, Nalbandian and Safin who pushed Federer alot last year. Doha has Gasquet, Haas and Grosjean. Bangkok has Safin, Gasquet, Haas.
They are not super strength fields but they are not weak.
