And don't go into the Casablanca thread, or you'll be more appalled to find that Wawrinka getting a WC into a field that has 1 Top 30 players. Then again, you won't bcos Wawrinka is not really on your agenda.
Haas is a US citizen so he's basically playing a home event.

And how do you know Wawrinka asked for a wild card and wasn't simply offered one?

Monaco, on the other hand, is playing DC in Argentina this weekend and Monte Carlo the week after, playing Houston in between has only one explanation. I'll give you a clue: it starts with a v and it has wings.

He always lost in the 1st round this year and therefore barely played any matches. If his injury is healed, he needs to enter tournaments to play as many matches as possible.

So your definition of vulture isn't about a player entering a weaker-than-his-ranking field then? it's a player entering a weaker-than-his-ranking "non-home-event" field. Got it.

I don't know, so I didn't say he asked for one. Reason I didn't say is because I did not think whether he asked for one or was forced to accept one (probably with money pointed to his head) is of any importance. The fact of the matter is that he is now in a event that has a significantly weak field, which I did not have problem with, and apparently so didn't you because your definition of vulture is a player entering a weaker-than-his-ranking field who has a surname of Monaco or Ferrer. Otherwise, I don't see you go around here criticizing Wawrinka, what gives? Is it only players who entered Houston who's not Americans (or Spanish since I don't see you criticizing Almagro either) are worthy of being called the word you hinted that started with a v? Casablanca is obviously no Houston.

Lucky that Almagro, Haas, Wawrinka's respective country teams are all out of DC, otherwise, they will be in the same boat as Monaco. We don't want that, oh no, we don't.

No. Being a home event, there's a reason to be playing there, it's no surprise that most players prefer home events. Besides, you can't be a vulture because of one tournament, it's something that requires consistently picking weak events. Haas actually went through Berdych, Kohli and Federer to win a 250 last year, he definitely doesn't have the habit of picking weak events.

Again, point me out other instances where Wawrinka played an event with such a depleted field. I picked up on Monaco, not because of this particular tournament alone, but because he often does it.

In 2010 he played a Challenger. Yeah.

You're right, such a depleted field is hard to find on the ATP level. Thanks Chase Visa for finding one in Challenger.

I have nothing against Stan, I like the guy, just want to be clear about that. So regretfully that I dragged him into this conversation which is not at all about him. It's a stupid notion to suggest that any players playing a ATP250 is vulturing. Then again, we know it's not about that either, it's just about personal bias ruining every conversation. MTF is so frustrating these days *sigh*.

So all you can find is a home event he played to promote Swiss tennis three years ago, really? That surely indicates consistent vulturng

This. But sadly we can still read that guy's BS when some other users quote him. I was out of these forums for months and now I see this guy is still here polluting the board with his pathetic vulturing idiocy

The ignore list is not as useful an instrument as just ignoring posters by practicing self-restraint

the funniest is when none of these known guys shows up it's "weak event" and "challenger" but if someone plays it, then despite the tournament gets some legacy now, he's becoming "vulture"

talking to the horse here

Are you implying that Monaco is 'someone' ie a big name? His presence only diminishes the event.
