Re: What do you think "Super Saturday" or "Stupid Saturday"?

The US should be stripped of their slam if they continue to put commercial interests ahead of the game!

I for one will not acknowledge the US Open as a major tournament anymore. In my eyes, it will forever be known as the 10th TMS.... which coincidentally makes Björn Borg the undisputed open era GOAT.

Re: What do you think "Super Saturday" or "Stupid Saturday"?

I like the fact that BOTH semifinals are played on Super Saturday, as opposed to the other Slams I think, where one half of the draw plays Friday, and the other Saturday, so one player has had less rest? Is that right?

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

I think by now all the other slams have the men's semis scheduled the same day (Friday). The two halves are typically synchronized at the 4th round or QFs, so there can be an "unfairly" quick turnaround between 5-setters somewhere for a player.

<---"Espera. ¿Dónde están?"

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

If they were, then the semis would be played at the same time.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: What do you think "Super Saturday" or "Stupid Saturday"?

The US does not deserve slams or tennis. These people, I am talking about my countrymen, who watch Football that is played with hands, they just need to stay sheep. Let the rest of the world appreciate tennis and soccer. I think US Open needs to end and become China Open. China deserves a slam. US does not.

Federer made a reference to Stupid Saturday in his post match presser after the semifinal.

Re: What do you think "Super Saturday" or "Stupid Saturday"?

Stupid, for the reasons mentioned above. If not for rainouts, Stupid Saturday guarantees the lowest quality final. Not what I want to see for a major final. With the rainouts, I don't get to see it live at all.

One idea is to move the USO up a week and play the men's final on Labor Day, where it won't get obscured by the opening day of the American football season. The semis could then be on Saturday. The women could have their semis on Friday and final on Sunday

Just a normal Saturday today.

Re: What do you think "Super Saturday" or "Stupid Saturday"?

It is what it is, Jules. Sampras dealt with it nicely, Fed dealt with it nicely.

I just can't wait for there to be a 70-68 5th set in the semis of Wimby so I can start a thread called "Super Tiebreaker" or "Stupid Tiebreaker"? Then you can tell me it is what it is.
