Re: Rate the 2012 US Open

Pretty good, except Nishi losing to Cilic. Trying to blank it out.

Re: Rate the 2012 US Open

this tournament really sucked. stupid organizers (scheduling, rain delays etc. pp), disgusting loss from fed against birdmen (who lost as expected in the next match). all my favs fucked up early (especially wta...).

few positive things:
- kohlschreiber beating isner r3
- murray won his 1st gs-title
- ferrer-tipsy match was great

4. Nice to have a first-time winner but it was fairly forgettable and the scheduling was fucked up (although I suppose this is the US

Shit tournament with terrible scheduling and 18 mph wind in the final to insure the players spend more time dealing with conditions then playing their best.

One of the best in years.


But, come to think of the weather, I'd give it 7/10 actually.

0/10. Tipsarevic losing to dirt pusher. Berdych losing to dirty pusher. Nole losing to dirty pusher. Tennis is dead.

Re: Rate the 2012 US Open

Well tough to say. From an unbiased point of view (not lowering my judgement because Rafa couldn't make it) the quality of play for the overall tournament I would say is a 6 or 7.. The tournament started great actually, with lots of thrilling matches and some good quality, however, once the weather kicked in, honestly the second week became quite a joke in terms of quality. However, of course Murray finally won and there was quite a bit of new drama with Federer out of the SFs, as there was a high chance for a new GS winner, so those were certainly a plus. But really, Novak played extremely mediocre tennis for his QF/SF matches and the final was honestly pretty bad. Certainly not the players' fault entirely since the conditions were indeed tough, but I have seen much, much, much better performances in the wind, so they do have to take some blame for the really cautious and rather boring play.. I mean Novak wasn't beating on the ball until midway in the second set, but he kept reverting back to floating the ball and making a lot of very poor errors.. So many shots were up the middle of the court and not even deep, and both players gifted each other with so many service breaks. Murray could have won the first two sets much easier or Djokovic could have even taken the first two sets as well.

So overall, a C+

Re: Rate the 2012 US Open

sad part is that we say this was really slow court, but Serena won on the women's side...

Tennis is really lame nowadays, WTA tour has been a joke since a few years ago, and ATP is about to become the same.. Matches are not enjoyable anymore, grindfest, pushfest, errorfest, moonballfest (not so much lately, dunno why ).... Only match i felt like watching was Berdych/Federer...

Tennis is slowly dying

This slam never existed.

Mandy Windray lucking out against choking mugs and tired Djoker, assisted by USTA mafia made this the worst slam after Wimbledon.

This year's slams:

I'm glad it's over. I'm more excited about Davis Cup.

Re: Rate the 2012 US Open

10/10 of course.

The scheduling and weather were not great but I could not care less now that Andy won. The final, while maybe not the best ever quality wise, was great drama and the way Andy closed it out in the fifth, to win his first slam, was excellent.

Re: Rate the 2012 US Open

All bad things mentioned above like court speed, wheather, schedulling ...

Positives for me : new, fresh grandslam winner and Klizan reaching 4th round and playing on Ashe

Little excitement and horrible conditions/scheduling, also lackluster final
