Legit question though.. why are there Clay Court tournaments right in the middle of hard court season? Straight after Aus Open. Dumb really.
Mager wins an ATP 500 and his ranking goes from 128 to 77. What’s his grass and hard court game like? Exactly.

I just going to guess but I reckon the ATP(rightly I feel) wants a small South American leg of the tour and this is the only time in the tour which is free to do so.

And they just happen to be clay tournaments, because that is what they play over there. I feel if Nick or any other player is upset by these players getting inflated rankings, then they could quite easily play these events as well.

both novak and nadal are making it look easy so far. But Novak(19-match winning streak) has Monfils(12-match winning streak) next.

In saying that, Nadal is playing right now. Damn, Mexico leaves things late.

i'd say this is it. and given it's summer in south america in feb, it is the season to schedule them after the Australian leg of the tour.

Tsitsipas, Khachanov and Fritz all once again denied by Djokvoic/Nadal. It's tough going for the next gen, even in the 500's.
