Boring AO so far..

Anyone else agree? There have been no real epic matches, night sessions have been shit, no major upsets.

Anyone else feel the same way?

AO begins on Tuesday.

Well, sir, it's this rug I have. It really tied the room together.

Re: Boring AO so far..

Gasquet/Youzhny, Blake/Pony, Ferrer/Baggy, seems quite a decent number of epic matches for first week to me. Is there some kind of collective amnesia and only Saturday is remembered?

Upsets, I've lost count how many seeds have been knocked out, starting with Soderling or did you expect a couple from top8 out by 4th round.

Re: Boring AO so far..

If there's no upsets early-on, that usually makes for a more exciting latter stages of a tournament.

Re: Boring AO so far..

Yeah, problem has been many of the top players receiving complete joke draws untill the fourth round. Should pick up now though.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Re: Boring AO so far..

I enjoyed the first couple rounds but the rest had been pretty disapointing. Aussie is my favorite slam because it ussually has some real battles consistently throughout the tourney.

Re: Boring AO so far..

No epic matches? Guess you haven't been watching. Good call though.

Re: Boring AO so far..

I'm only here cause Roddick's still here xD Not too keen on the others.

If Davydenko wins, then this boring AO was all worth it. I don't want to see anymore passive tennis this week.

If Roddick wins (IF, IIIIF), then my bias will naturally make me cheer for joy.

Re: Boring AO so far..

its been shit for the people who have had RLA passes and then for most who watch it on T.V. Apart from the Tomic match and Dementieva vs Henin...RLa havnt had there moneys worth.. i was at kohlscreiber nadal on Friday night and it was crap.. i paid 110 bucks to see Wozniaki last night aswel..and the people who paid 50 saw a decent match. However that being said Hisense Arena Matches have been Great as all the big names have played there and there have been epic matches. I thought last year was boring until the second week.There Have been great crowds and brilliant early round matches and there is still more to come.

Thanks. The only real good match was Delpo v Blake but still not epic imo.

Re: Boring AO so far..

What the heck?

Del Potro/Blake was one of the best matches you'll ever see.

Gasquet/Youzhny was incredible, almost 5 hours.

Baghdatis/Ferrer.

Gonzalez/Korolev

Neiminen/Almagro

Just because most of these matches weren't on RLA doesn't mean this tournament hasn't had many epics.
