Is this year US Open boring?

Indeed, we had 3 good matches (2 with Sargis playing and one with Michail vs. David).

Wins are for the most part lopsided, no drama... What's wrong?

Re: Is this year US Open boring?

It just got interesting with the Serena-Capriati match.

On the men's side, I'm hoping for a Duck/Hewitt rematch.

Shhh. Maybe it'll go away if nobody talks about it. but seeing as though we're nearing the end and there are like 4 matches to be played per day, it isn't "that" bad.

Re: Is this year US Open boring?

I havn't watched much of the open this yr but i think its been quite interesting though and there are some great quarter-finals and some semi-finals taking shape. The only complaint i have is that every1 i want to win is losing!! Tommy will change that though

Re: Is this year US Open boring?

It's been pretty interesting to me so far. There's lots of new blood out there. Even the early round womens' matches have been interesting. I also like watching the mental side of what's going on as well. The Jen/Serena match was good minus the "controversy". I thought the disgustingly poor conduct of the lines people/umpire was so egregious that I had to write the USTA. Eventhough there have been a few lopsided matches, there have been quite a few squeakers. Even some of the straight set victories have included very high quality from both opponents. I'm still looking forward to seeing how this tournament unfolds.

ataptc, according to one of the spokespeople at USA Network, it rained this morning before the matches started. But, the rest of the day turned out beautifully.

Re: Is this year US Open boring?

I think it has been a great tournament for the quality and excitement of the matches, but it seems the attendance this year is not like last year. It seems like the crowds are not that much going wild like last year.
Oh the drama of that match serena/cap.
did you all hear the crowd booing capriati when she said she didn't really see the ball?

Re: Is this year US Open boring?

Well, normally I'd say yes, as both Roddick and Hewitt are still left in the tournement, but there have been some great matches appearantly, and plus 3 ofmy favourites are in the QF.Federer, Haas, Henman
