Despite his form this year, Kafel has done nothing to erase his "indoor monstor" status Though if he loses to Alex Kim in straights on carpet in the next month or two I may have to change that He's won the Kremlen Cup - that is the one right? - how many times in a row? 4? 5?
As the others said, Kafel, Enqvist, Safin, Haas and Henman are very good.
No one mentioned Max Mirnyi, though. He played extremely well last year, and reached his first final in a TMS played on carpet.
Max 2001 Carpet record:
Moscow - 1st r- Lost to SAFIN(75 46 46)
Lyon - 1st r- Bt Schuettler (46 64 63)
2nd r- bt Arazi (76 62)
Quarters- Lost to SAFIN (62 46 46)
given Haas, Kafelnikov, Johanssen's injuries, Enqvist (who knows what is going on with him) and Pete, Andre, and Lleyton's reduced schedule, I guess the way has been cleared for Max to break through this season.
Now for a question that jas nothing to do with the topic: Has US TV ever shown a match with Paradorn S. I have yet to see him play.
