Re: OMG no one is at the final!!!

Re: OMG no one is at the final!!!

doesn't change the fact that it's sad to have such a depressing turnout for the fucking final of the fifth biggest tournament of the year. seriously, i was at new haven last year with a shit draw and no-name players and the finals were still packed. it's sad and unfortunate scheduling.

Re: OMG no one is at the final!!!

Well when people bought tickets all those months ago they were hoping to see the likes of Henin, Sharapova, Ivanovic or the Williams Sisters playing so this is a bit or a dissapointing final after the tournaments line up was hit hard a was missing a lot of good players.

Re: OMG no one is at the final!!!

Well, they're not missing much. The match sucks so far.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Has any of the matches been either a GS final, an Olympics Gold medal final or a MAJOR final? I'm guessing not

Re: OMG no one is at the final!!!

This is really a bloody shame.....nearly nobody is watching the GOLD-match and everybody else seems watching the Bronze-match. Who in gods name made this OOP. I feel very soory for Dinara and Elena. This is so unworthy.

Jelena Jankovic, Angelique Kerber, Maria Sharapova, Vika Azarenka

Re: OMG no one is at the final!!!

The commentators said it's because the match was supposed to be on Saturday, but it's on Sunday, plus it is being played at 2pm instead of 4pm so no one has tickets for this match, plus a Chinese player is playing at the same time.

That's what they said anyway

This really is awful for an Olympic Gold Medal match
