What does everyone take out of the Miami event so far?

Today, and the Miami masters 2011, obviously has been crazy so far. Blake actually winning a close match, Soderling barely winning, Raonic out, Verdasco inexplicably losing, Murray not giving a damn, clay courters having great runs. But you know what all this tells me? It's not that Miami is a joke tournament:

It's that the top 3 are WAY above the rest of the field in class.

Nothing more, nothing less people. However, I'm curious. What do you all take out of the results so far in Miami?

Slowest hard court surface on tour, with particularly heavy conditions making it especially slow this year >>>> upsets.

No coverage until Saturday in a Masters 1000 is the biggest joke I've ever seen :rolleyes:
Every year the same shit

A HUGE disappointment so far. Mainly because of the bad performances by the youngsters.

The Miami surface is rated a notch slower than IW on the ITF surface ranking.

Wrt Nadal, it's all about the bounce more than the speed. He's done OK here, beat Fed in 2004 afterall when he was about 12, but just seems to struggle against the top guys every year rather than winning it.

Murray and Verdasco apparently didn't get LeBron's memo to take their talents to South Beach :shrug:

Miami is almost like playing on clay. Give the trophy to Nadal already.

1- That the ATP is the worst organisation in the whole world. How come we have no fucking TV coverage this week? We missed some amazing mugathons.

2- Miami is a shit event. That's not new.

Good post.

But really, I don't mind a slower hardcourt like this where different guys with different skill sets can win matches. I am all for encouraging development of different skill sets on different courts to create more diversity in the game. I personally am not a fan of slow hardcourt/clay tennis so much, and will gladly call these guys mugs in a mug era. But if they varied all kinds of courts like this to create a more diverse game, the game would be better overall.

Because slow doesn't suit Nadal that well despite this myth being so entrenched? He'd take conditions quick but with a high bounce if asked.

Any tournament where Mugray loses early is a good tournament in my book.
