    2 week long masters

    I was searching for the next Zverev match and was surprised seeing his first appearance on Friday. Is this an overkill? Would you want more compact schedule or prolonged ones where you can see all players matches. IW, Miami, Madrid and Rome have 96 men draws.

    Big Title Haul - NextGen Part 2

    This is a remaking of the Hitman thread. He appears to have left permanently. Just rebuilding the thread to maintain the numbers. For the purposes of this thread, I'll define "Next Gen" as those players born 1995 and later. I will include the newest Next Gen classes born in the 2000s. Name...

    2022 Madrid Masters SF - (2.) Alexander Zverev vs (4.) Stefanos Tsitsipas

    ATP H2H: 7-3 for Tsitsipas Clay H2H: 3-0 for Tsitsipas How do you see this match? Stef is a better clay court player, but Sascha is more successful in Madrid, winning 2 titles. I'm expecting a three-set battle.

    For the first time since 2004 Paris

    We will have a Masters event without the Big 3. In each of the past 138 Masters tournaments we got to watch at least one among Djokovic, Federer and Nadal, who have combined for 99 titles at this level. With Djokovic announcing his withdrawal from 2021 Miami Open about an hour ago, that streak...

    David Ferrer :: Most Under-rated non grand slam winner

    In my opinion, this guy was the best of the best in the 2nd tier of players outside the big 4 (Fed, Rafa, Djoko, Murray) during the late 2000s and early 2010s. Some significant accolades/results Ferrer posted: General: 20 years on tour, 1999-2019 High of #3 in the world (Top 10 for 292...

    Rome 2020 F: Djokovic (1) vs Schwartzman (8)

    IW vs Miami OPEN - Which one is the most prestigious one?

    Folks, With the Miami Open having a new location/stadium, which one should be the most prestigious one? Is IW still the standard for what a M1000 is supposed to be? Is the Miami Open now the standard? Which one has the overall to be the 5th Slam?

    Another Fed vs Del Po

    Every match between these two I can remember has been great, always awesome quality matches. with Del Po finally coming over some real hard backhands, you could consider me excited. Predictions? Will Del Po finally get his a M1000?

    Rank the Masters in order of prestige

    Pretty straightforward question. I'd guess IW and Miami are the top 2 because of the size of the draws and the higher prize money (although I think Shanghai offers almost as much prize money as IW). How about the others?
  19. BlueClayGOAT

    Tennis needs a grass Masters. Or at least a WTF which rotates between surfaces.

    Grass tennis is so exciting because it brings out nuances of touch and finesse you simply don't see on HC. A grass Masters is hence necessary. Cancel one of Paris and Shanghai. As for the WTF, it is a one-of-its-kind event, and hence needs to rotate between surfaces so that the top players can...
