From The Editor

Tennis Masters Cup is a unique tournament that embodies excellence and represents both opportunity and reward for the year's best eight players. Reward, because qualification requires an outstanding body of work over the course of 10 months. Opportunity, because one player will emerge the champion of champions on one of tennis' grandest stages.

In this edition we profile Andy Roddick and David Ferrer, who, like six other Masters Cup qualifiers, have been spectacularly cast as life-size terracotta warriors. Ferrer tells how he walked away from tennis and took a job working construction, only to find the pay wasn't as good as it is on tour.

Share a laugh with Tommy Haas in "The Last Time..." as the German recounts some interesting fan requests. And learn more about fast-rising Israeli doubles duo Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram. 

Enjoy!
