Re: Men's tennis 2004-2007

So what your basically asking is was Roger Federer dominating every tournament he entered good for mens tennis. IMO no it was boring knowing the winner of the event even before it started. Couple of highlights (none of them containing Roger) Hewitt v Safin 2005 Aus Open Final, Coria v Gaudio 2004 Roland Garros Final.

Basically we saw the decline of most of the top players in 2003 on these years ie. Roddick, Hewitt, Agassi, Ferrero, Philippoussis, Kuerten, Srichaphan, Moya, Coria, Grosjean, Safin, Mirnyi, Henman... this list goes on and on.
Some of my favorite players are in that list so no I didnt enjoy these years so much, I want the unpredictablity to come back to mens tennis where we have a new world number one every month that would be awesome keep me interested.

Re: Men's tennis 2004-2007

I think having a new #1 every month would make it seem horribly transitional.

Who knows? I've never seen #1 change quickly, but I think it would make me feel like I do about the WTA #1, and that's that it never really matters at a given time, because it changes so constantly.

A new mug every month at the top would indeed be awesome the casual fan would drool at it, no doubt...

Re: Men's tennis 2004-2007

Bad- GB Davis Cup side was at its lowest ebb in my years following tennis, no British success really, plus the slams were generally mediocre, you knew Fed would win the same 3 slams, and Nadal the same 1 slam, but then again this is better than Faker winning any of them.

If either Nadal or Djokovic were to dominate the game the way Fed did, will you find it boring too? serious question here

Boring years, almost stopped following ATP in the first half of that period.

Retarded poll of the week, by the way.

Well maybe not every month but I like the idea of playing for your ranking like in 2001 when Hewitt won the world number one ranking in the last tournament of the year. Federer will be playing for his ranking very soon and should be interesting to see if he really is as "cool, calm and collected" as every says he is. After today with Simon I think it is only a matter of time...

Too bad you can't add a red dot, it would have deserved it I guess...

The 2005 AO wasn't bad.
