Yawn Fest of a Final Bring on The Mens Tennis

Congrats to both for making the final but come on and give the people their moneys worth.

This is beyond boring.

Bring on Wimbledon already.

I think yesterday was the men's real final. Hopefully, I'll be surprised and it will be good.

Bitter, because I didn't get to see a competitve well played final? Yes, but oh well Wimbledon is around the corner.

If you enjoyed that final I feel sorry for you because you need more exposure to what a true competitve tennis match can mean for fans.

So I guess you didn't enjoy RG final '02?

And yes, yesterday was the "real" men's final. It was SOOOOOOOO interesting and high quality match, right?

what with all the federrors and enough breaks to make Aniko Kapros proud?

actually it was an ok match, just not 'the match of the tournament' by any stretch as it was being advertised

so Fed made a few errors. i seem to recall a certain fanbase saying that they count forced errors when a certain persons 70+ errors in a match were highlighted it was competitive and dramatic if not "clean"

Yep, been ready for the men's final for a while now. Enjoyed the Roger-Nadal semi, and IMO it was Roger's to lose. I believe that the grinding will catch up to Rafa one day but good luck in the final to him.

As for today's women's final it was the most boring final I have ever seen. It was like a 3rd round matchup. I was already certain Justine would trounce her so no suprise there at all.

All slams finals so far "happened" in previous rounds:
AO - Federer vs Safin, Sharapova vs Serena.
FO - Federer vs Nadal, Kuznetsova vs Henin.

And yes: Safin vs Hewitt, Serena vs Davenport and Justine vs Pierce were horrible finals. I hope Nadal vs Puerta will be better, although I doubt that.
