Why the seeds are falling in Miami?

What is going on? Why are the seeded players falling so fast at the Sony Ericsson. Is it the surface or what can it be?

First off because we are living in a parallel universe;)
But truthfully for me it is because men's tennis is very deep. There are lots of very good players that on any given day in any given tounament will just be able to put it all together. We were a bit lulled over the last few years because Nadal and Federer were so dominant but that was not the norm I think.

We have seen worse...

And it's all part of this 2008 paralel universe, my friend. When a favourite wins a match is almost an upset now. :)

Tennis is a great sport, anyone can beat anyone. Unlike football where you know teams like Man U will never lose to a small team in the Champion's League.

A lot of people on MTF will have looked at the draw and said that virtually none of the seeds are guaranteed to go through and it wouldn't be a surprise if they didn't however for so many to have fallen in unison is most definitely surprising.

one of the top MTF cliches is the right phrase for this moment: MUG ERA!

Really?

Surely that depends on how one views it..

Either..
The top players are weaker so they are getting beaten more regularly by below average players, Or...
The level of play is high from No1 right through to No150, thus displaying the huge depth in strength of the modern ATP tour.

I would plump for the latter..

Come on mate, im only joking.

Seriously the ATP right now is too tight, i dont know what is happening right now, but the level of the game is not very good nowadays

Certainly you have never been in Miami. I will tell you something.. when they are there... they go out all the nights, they got drunk and take subtances than must be banned by the ITF. And the amount of groupies have increased. Make your math! They are athletes, not superheros!

I've been saying mug era alot. But I've been seeing some nice tennis again, or even if it sucks, at least there's something to talk about again.

I think it's a little bit early to say this since not all the seeds have played in Miami. It's better to talk about this after today's schedule is finished.

:rolls: J'

Seriously, I think it's the first round bye. The seeded players have to face players who have played at least a match and are more adapted to the conditions of the courts.

Wow- there has been a shearing of the seeds. And one of the seeds to survive is Almagro- on hard. :lol: (Although I feel he has the game to play on slow to medium hard...he never seems to be able to do it.)

It's kinda sad with all these seeds falling and we are going to have a Federer/Nadal final here.

It will be Malisse vs Almagro final. The 2 biggest crackheads remaining in the draw. :rocker2:
