Poll: Three Favorite/Most Important Masters?

Just curious what people think. Saw elsewhere many people don't even rank Masters equivalently.

Wherever that pays the most :cool: I don't know which ones pay the most, so that's why I said that.

I think the 2 clay masters are the best looking but I don't want to be biased and say 2 of them are the most important. I guess Rome, IW and... Cincy?

As the only Masters 1000 event held outside Europe or North America, Shanghai is obviously the most important. You could cancel any one of the others without significant regional impact (notwithstanding plenty of moaning). Canada is probably second, but Shanghai is the most important by a long shot. It's also the fastest, another factor that sets it apart and increases its importance.

I feel like there needs to be a better distinction between the nine Masters 1000s. They're all so different in structure that it's hard to attribute 1,000 points to each of them. Maybe upgrade Sunshine Double and Rome to 1,200 points or something?

There was a decent discussion (in between the usual goat and slam count rubbish) about possible ways to improve the current masters series.

I agree with this. They should be weighted higher (at least the two 96 MD tournaments).

Maybe to keep the points even, you could make IW and Miami worth 1250 apiece and make Monte Carlo and Paris worth 750 apiece. (Or 1200 and 800, something along those lines.)

Not Monte-Carlo! Beautiful tournament. Plus, it's the first big event of the clay season. Better for Madrid to be 750 than MC.

IW > The rest.

Madrid / Cinci are probably the other two i would rank as important. Surprised so many people put Rome, i don't even consider that in the top half.

Indian Wells, Cincinnati, Shanghai.

Would've been Rome instead of Shanghai but Nadal won too much there.
