Looking at his 2003 season, it was a fluke. After that he lost in the semis, and quarters of Challengers in the 2 following weeks respectively

Still six TMS champions, three of them slam winners.

Pavel had been injured for half the year IIRC. He did come back to have a good season in 2004 though and recover his place in the top 30.

Grosjean was quality indoors.

Henman, Canas and Nalbandian's runs do stand out.

Fatbandian profited from weak era.

Although I would use the term "profited" very loosely as this clown couldn't even win a single slam during his prime

Cañas was the toughest draw in Toronto to win a TMS which was 10 years ago.

Code:
R64 Roger Federer (SUI)	 	10	W 7-6(10), 7-5
R32 Paradorn Srichaphan (THA)	60	W 6-2, 6-1	
R16 Yevgeny Kafelnikov (RUS)	5	W 6-2, 6-2	
QF  Marat Safin (RUS)	 	2	W 7-5, 6-3	
SF  Tommy Haas (GER)	 	3	W 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(5)	
W   Andy Roddick (USA)	 	12	W 6-4, 7-5

What would happen if today's players were given draw to play back2back vs 19, 20 and 21 years old players. In terms of strong era it would be easiest draw ever, but in weak eras this draw is pretty awesome.
All what was happening in fedmug era is a pretty irrelevant.

Funny thing is, Nalbandian has more talent in his left nut than Dull has in his entire body clown.

Hit a nerve there? Fatbandian is a just a clown with fast food addiction and a single slam final as his career highlight. Nadal is a legend with 11 slams and clay GOAT. Try to keep these things in mind when hurling insults towards vastly more talented players who surpassed Clownbandian's career in a single year.

Nope. Just felt like calling you a clown

Well, yes, but it's always easier to beat better players in best of three sets than best of five, and anyway nobody really cared much about Madrid or Paris Masters, because they were/are at the end of the season and many players, especially top players, start resting up quite a bit.

Why do people always say that he's overweight because of fast food? Did he say this? I always thought that Nalbandian is a more fine dining kind of guy. You know, eating at fancy restaurants.

I know Moya was past his prime, and Andy wasn't that good on clay, but the name are impressive:
Nadal, Hamburg 2008
Code:
R32	Potito Starace (ITA)	 47	 6-4, 7-6(6)	
R16	Andy Murray (GBR)	 14	 6-3, 6-2	
Q	Carlos Moya (ESP)	 12	 6-1, 6-3	
S	Novak Djokovic (SRB)	 3	 7-5, 2-6, 6-2	
W	Roger Federer (SUI)	 1	 7-5, 6-7(3), 6-3
