last 2 tournament have been Boring!

I have to say that the last 2 tournament have been very boring. Without some of the big players these tennis tournament are just boring.

Justine HH is just not an exciting player to watch. Kim is ok, but she is no Serena.

I hope the next few tournament are exciting, when they move on to Europe on red clay.

I meant the matches have been so dull!

I wouldn't say they have been boring - you are never ever going to get the top players playing every tournament.

Kim didn't even play one of the last 2 tournaments and all this is just your opinion

It seems that the return of the Belgians doesn't only equate to a victory parade.

Expect the resumption of a war ... although with Sharapova and others' emergence there are more factions this time.

I'd expect this coming once the Belgians started winning again.

Good Luck In 2005:
[Martina Hingis] [Justine Henin-Hardenne]
[Cara Black] [Nadia Petrova] [Eugenia Linetskaya] [Patty Schnyder]
[Svetlana Kuznetsova] [Ai Sugiyama] [Su-Wei Hsieh] [Gisela Dulko]

[Maja Matezvic] [Karolina Sprem] [Eleni Daniilidou] [Maria Kirilenko] [Jelena Jankovic]
[Tathiana Garbin] [Timea Bacsinszky] [Kaia Kanepi] [Na Li] [Vera Douchevina]

Charleston has been great. There have a been a couple of twists and turns . The veterans vs. the youngins. Lisa Raymond, Venus, and petrova lose to Golovin. Justine beats Jankovic, Peng, and Golovin. Vaidisova beats Myskina and Asagoe. Kostanic beats Silvia Farina. Barbora Strycova beat Conchi. Lindsay can't play on clay for two straight weeks competitively. Justine might do the same thing Clijsters did. Get to the quarters in her first tourni and then win the next. Vaidisova, Jankovic, and Golovin find the Myskina way to win on clay. Hit hard. Move well. Get everything in. None of those players really have even a year of clay court experience. Vaidisova finally learned how to circle questionable shots in her third match of the tourni. I thought it was a good tourni overall. There's finally a good final after 3 years with two top 10 players. Henin-Hardenne is playing like a top 10 player even thought she isn't ranked there.
