    I'm a Fed fan but after watching Hamburg and seeing Robredo and Stepanek advance to the finals, I am finally seeing how nice it is that there isn't Federer or Nadal in any of the finals.

    I hope Tommy wins. I like his blog, seems very nice guy.

    With Nadal's current streak of "Slams Played" sitting at zero in a row, I don't think you've got a lot to worry about on his end.

    Might want to get out the Federer voodoo doll, though. Guy's a machine.

    Nah - I hope they play in all the Slams, but that people raise their games and start beating them ;)

    Why do you like watching hack tennis?

    Not really hack tennis. You'd have to go down to the 4.5 level to find hack tennis. Everyone in the top 100 is pretty damn good, though not as good as Nadal or Federer.

    I agree slightly. STEPANEK in a masters series final? Watching these matches make me think one thing - Federer or Nadal would kill them. The field needs to raise its game or else we will see Federer and Nadal winning the rest of the masters series for sure.

    Well, it isn't his first, this is his second final...

    But yeah, Fed and Nadal are a level above everyone else right now, and I would certainly like that to change...

    There is no competition in the mens field,i know fed has been a great player but he does not have to face that many tough players.Thats why when nadal is beating him, he nor his fans can believe it.The mens field susks!

    It's just nice to see other guys achieve something in their careers, like getting a first AMS title or something.
