No, form shouldn't decide who gets to play there.

you get the occasional player just happy to be there, normally they would never qualify

but usually, it is the best 8 players in the world, and that's clear to see
A post without mentioning Federer from you, amazing.

so much contradiction in that one sentence

''ferrer and monaco'', ''weak fields'', ''huge candidates for the WTF''

in all likelihood, ferrer will get double bagelled by both del potro and federer in the group stages

Well perhaps I was expecting more from a clown troll of your level. My mistake.

You could have like the top 6 automatically and 2 places decided after qualies between say the next 8, that would effectively involve the top 20 and we'd have less tankers I reckon.

But Janowicz as a wild card? Nope...he doesn't deserve it.

I also don't like the round robin format, more tanking encouraged.

I think the top 16 guys should "rock, scissors, paper" for a spot, personally.
