Those master's series tournaments are about as hard to win as a major. Look at how long poor David Ferrer had to wait — till the Top 4 withdrew from or tanked the Paris Masters because of the scheduling change that put it a week before the WTFs.

Before then, the most recent ones to win outside the Top 4 are Soderling and Roddick, guys with big credentials. It's rare to see an unheralded player make it far. Tomic might have to pull a Jerzy Janowicz in Miami with Nadal and Fed out. (Might as well give that one to Novak now, though.)
