Ferrero went 0-3 in Houston, and now he'll try to help Spain beat Australia in this month's Davis Cup final. He already missed out on a chance to overtake Roddick at No. 1, and now he will slide to No. 3 if Federer wins the title.
Ferrero made the Tennis Masters Cup semifinals at Sydney in 2001 and the final at Shanghai, China, in 2002, and he said those two tournaments were ``much better than here.'' He wouldn't go into details other than to say he didn't like the court, and he said he relayed that and other complaints to tour manager Weller Evans.
Nalbandian also made vague complaints about the event, saying he thought tournament chairman Jim McIngvale shouldn't have been cheering for Agassi during their match Thursday night.
Moya also said he thinks improvements need to be made but wouldn't be specific.
