Is the AO official web the worst of all?

I think it is. It's damn boring. No daily predictions by experts. They put up everything long after they happened. Everything seems screwed up there.
What do you think?

I thought the predictions started in week 2? I guess I am wrong. And please the predictions weren't even that good in the first place. All I care about it results.

They're better off without those stupid predictions from Bollitieri and other fools.

The only thing good about the site is the cartoon picture. The site is just as is was 5yrs ago and I would think they would be improving it each year.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

It's pretty bad. I have the total ad block up on my firewall, and most of their site doesn't load at all if you don't let them load ads on your pc.

It's the only website which has live scores of every match on the web, so I'm not complaining.

what other grand slam tournament doesn't have live scores? Yes it's great if you're going to compare it to a tier III but compare it to the other slam websites and it's going backwards....

At least the Wimbledon site has Net Cam.

Of course, by "sometimes" I mean "often", and by "often" I mean "always".
