    Most likely it's because Roger, and Murray are not there.

    You beat me to the post. I was wondering about that too. Turnout is POOR..maybe they just want to watch Federer

    Why has China bothered hosting this....bet its going to be a huge loss making proposition.

    Somewhere, the tournament organizers in Hamburg are laughing.

    The attendance has been pretty poor but the Blake V Nadal match had a good attendance.

    Thats because average tennis fans only know about 2 names. Roger and Rafa. Other than that the casual fan really doesnt know about anyone else. Too bad Roger isnt there.
