Re: Most boring GS of the year?
French Open had some matches and runs I really enjoyed... Verdasco made a nice run beating Zverev and losing to Nishikori in R4, and Kei himself stopped by an unexpected Murray run to the semis where he had a great 5 set match with Wawrinka. Thiem did well and got to another semi as well. A few unpredictable results kept things fun enough to enjoy, and despite the final being 1 sided it was a very high level of tennis.
Wimbledon was also a slam with some runs I enjoyed, Querrey doing well, Cilic making the final, Berdych getting deep here once again. Muller was great to watch too, coming back from a losing position against Rosol to knocking Nadal out in a very long 5th set. It got extremely predictable though with a low number of upsets and the final was a dissapointment because I think we didn't see a truly fit match-up. I am sure Federer would have won either way, but its not cool to be deprived of that.
US Open started out with less top players and even the ones that were there kept losing, in was a fortnight for upsets. Dimitrov, Zverev, Cilic, Tsonga and Berdych off the top of my head all surprisingly lost. I enjoy when the underdog can come through. Del Potro's run was great (vs Thiem one of the matches of the year possibly, certainly one of the best atmosphere), same with a lot of players on the bottom half who got chances for a great run. The final was overwhelmingly one sided which was a shame, it was refreshing for a first time finalist to be there but not so refreshing to see a first time slam finalist getting easily beaten.
Overall I enjoyed Wimbledon the least probably but I still found things I liked in all the slams and I never stopped watching any of them
