it is pretty insane. Barcelona will always be my favorite 500 just on the basis of the club's extremely long history. BUT obviously Dubai is today the most prestigious and impressive

Not really, since the ATP500 series is not destined to portray the very top of the tour, but rather a balanced mix of the second tier.

Beijing 2011 was a decent example of a template for the series.

If you're a tard or a gloryhunter and this post rattles you, spare me your comments.

Dubai has a weird field, there's a huge gap between players of the top Top 10 and the rest. "Second league" players choose Acapulco and Delray Beach, it opens a possibility for the "3rd league" players to win one round with a solid fee in Dubai.

And that's why we saw nothing in first 3 days

Is it possible in the near future for the ATP to make the Dubai into a Masters 1000 event? and take one of the masters down to a 500 tier?

I'm not asking whether or not they SHOULD although that could spark some very good discussion. Rather, I'm asking how hard it would be for the ATP to make that kind of change. I know they've done it in the past with Hamburg and Shanghai, but is it still possible.

By Fed surely you meant the overrated underachieving overdefensive underclutch overchoking underwhelming Scotsman?
So by this, it's safe to assume you're not one of those that are overrating him then *chin rub*

This would have been stronger had Soderling been around.
