The most boring match you've ever watched til the end

Tennis fans are courageous and dedicated people, and sometimes, for a reason or another, they endure the penibility of a boring match. Some say boom-boom fast surface matches are boring, other clay never-ending rallies...
My pick would be a Roddick-Ancic R16 in Queens in 2004. Despite great players, teh atmosphere in the stadium was so sleepy, and no rally whatsoever... Yawn
Yours ?

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Sampras-Volchkov 2000 Wimbly SF

It had to most anticlimatic, predictable match ever. But, I was on painkillers due to blowing out my foot, so there wasn't much else to do.

Any match in which Roger bageled his opponent.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

Re: The most boring match you've ever watched til the end

Thanks guys, the gun was on the temple...
Seems that "aces rains" are a killer in modern tennis...
Thanks Roger to be around not to ace too much and to return so well

You still have the nice shots you don't have in a Karlovic-Johansson 7-6 6-7 7-6 6-7 7-6

I think a match like that would bore me to tears. I'm pulling out the Kleenex now.
