ATP Houston is the only American tournament contested on clay. On the red clay which is fast enough, but still it’s clay. This event bears no significant meaning for the players neither in terms of the ranking points on stake nor in terms of preparation for the European clay season. The main motive seems to be appearing in front of the local audience so most of the recent year winners have been Americans. The fast surface is especially comfortable for big servers and reliable returners.
This year the main favorites to the title are Jack Sock (the defending champion), John Isner, Steve Johnson and Sam Querrey. All of them are in a good physical form and will enjoy performing on their best-loved surface on the home courts. Moreover, none of the above has checked in for the Monte Carlo Masters so they have it all to push as much effort as possible in Texas and then start getting ready for the Madrid Masters. So by and large, these Americans will struggle for the title.
It isn’t clear what Benoit Paire is aiming for. The Frenchman is illogical as always. The German representatives Benjamin Becker and Michael Berrer are also strangers here. Perhaps the event is suitable for Feliciano Lopez but the Spaniard has failed the Miami Masters and would better have some rest to get ready for the European clay events. It would also be interesting to watch Juan Monaco. The Argentina’s player is able of making fuss on courts.
Stay tuned for the ATP Houston and Dotennis!

Everything in this match counts in favor of the Spaniard. Nadal, as a real locomotive, took long to get into stride. But having accelerated he becomes unstoppable. Rafa performed well in Madrid
From the moment he appeared on courts, Kei Nishikori has always been one of 5 or 6 super talented promising players.
