what ROUND usually has the best QUALITY of matches???

I'd like to know what you guys think! For me... its usually the semifinals that have the best quality. Players usually by then have the desire and belief that they can get to the finals so they rarely play too horrible in this round. Most of my memories of the highest quality matches are semifinal matches. IN the finals, too many players are nervous and don't play very well and its obvious, even if the score may be tight.

Venus Serena JJ Bethanie Vania Naomi
Petra S. Peng S. Zhang Su-Wei Vera Cici
Vesnina Sveta Crawford McHale Franny Zarina Sloane
Lepchenko Min Garbiñe

Kokkinakis Pospisil Coric Nishikori Berdych Huey Shapovalov
Sock F. Lopez Isner Murray Tiafoe Dmitrov Monfils Thiem Roanic Tsonga

Semifinals for me. It's exciting (or disappointing) to know that one of the four could be a potential slam winner.

"People think I’m a bitch when they first meet me because ‘Oh I’m pretty, oh I have this beautiful body’ and they are right. Don’t waste your breath with me if you don’t have a Bentley or a fur on hand ready to give me."
