Wow!! That match between Kim Clijsters and Elena Bovina was

one of the ugliest and most boring matches I have ever watched So many errors and breaks of serve,including never-ending games, I am shocked the spectators didn't leave with boredom (or maybe they were more likely after falling asleep). Think the Eurosport commentators were embarrassed to be commentating on such a match. What was up with Kim? She looked like she was playing her very first match ever or something,not at all looking like the current IW and Miami champion.Her new hair seems to have affected her ability to play Just hope that Warsaw sees some better tennis in the semi-finals..

This is a weird, crazy comment.Why are breaks of serve and games with long rallys boring?
I think most people see it the other way round and this is what they expect out of a good match,

Yes, inability to win a game point and a billion of silly unforced errors are definitely the qualities I want to see in a tennis match. I don't know how can anyone find that truly fascinating encounter boring.

V-MAC i have seen the match and you are speeking the truth, too ugly to be true. Only the Kournukovamatch with the 32 DF was more ugly

Since when were rallies and tight points boring? Interestingly the crowd seemed to find it rather exciting when the winner is uncertain wheras they seem only to wake up in the second match when Ana hits a big winner as the error count is as bad and the outcome more certain.
