I hate Justine And Amelie.

I hate them both. They beat Monica and Jen with impressive displays then show up playing like Anna Kournikova in the semis. Women's tennis is boring as hell now and you are part of the cause!!! Streaky tennis that takes out one good player but doesn't show up for the next. How are we supposed to get rivalries!!!! I thought we were starting a good thing with Monica/Venus and Jen/Serena.

Mauresmo had 6 to 18 Winner to UE ratio! Is this sunday afternoon senior league???

Pray that some of these girls mature or that Lindsay and Martina come back in form or Men's tennis is quickly going to become more interesting than the womens. It's already happening.

Mens tennis has been more interesting than Womens for quite some time now, IMO.

THough it is interesting to see a thread that blame the "problem" in womens tennis, on the opponents, and not on Venus and Serena's "dominance" for a change.

I absolutely believe it. I don't think Venus and Serena have greatly raised their game in the past few years. Maybe Serena is a bit more mentally tough. But the problem lies almost directly with the slumping of the rest of the tour. Martina and Lindsay are out to injury now, but they had been slumping a little---of course that could have been due to injury. Monica is streaky, but remember she is the only non-Williams to beat a Williams in a slam this year. Cap is also streaky, she can be blamed for losing to Serena in Paris, but here Mauresmo just played awesome. I doubt anyone would have beaten Mauresmo in that quarter. As for Henin, Clijsters, Dokic, Mauresmo, etc. have they really improved in the past year or so??? I think they may have all gone down a level. Hantuchova is promising, but give her a year on tour.

the sisters are only making women's tennis anticipate former #1's Lindsay Davenport and Martina Hingis more

The only fun match was Henin vs. Seles and Capriati vs. Mauresmo this entire tournament.

Here's one hoping for a three setter on Saturday with Serena winnin(which would make her 3/4 in majors) and oh SHE IS #1 In the World Right now as we speak! She is the true number one at the moment in my opinion.

That is true, I am in anxious anticipation of Lindsay and Martina's return.

My fav rounds at grand slams have always been the 4th round and the QF's, as IMO the semis and finals have been more predictable for me.

I like Justine and Amelie, and I don't think the rest of the wta tour is slumping. Kim, Chanda, Jennifer won titles this year. Hingis as well, it's just that right now Serena and Venus are two individuals players who are doing well right now! It wasn't that long ago, that Jen won Oz, and Hingis was in the final.

I do so miss that Venus/Hingis rivalry it is the best in the WTA imho. Also tennis is becoming alot more popular, especially in the inner cities and in the homes of minorites people and children. people are watching Venus and Serena.

I thought Justine looked a little flat today (no pun intended) and I thought could have played much better against Venus than she did and I didn't think Venus looked all that amazing, but I thought Amelie was doing everything she could. Serena was just too tough for her, all over her case, wouldn't let her get into points or come to the net a lot. Jen may have been able to make it closer simply because she's played Serena a lot more and gets under her skin some, but come on, I don't think Jen or Monica would have beaten them today either. And I certainly don't think you can chalk up Justine's semifinal appearance to a "streak."

I don't like it when people say "The William Sisters are only dominating because Martina and Lindsay are out wih injuries"!!!


GOD LOOK AT THERE HEAD TO HEAD RECORDS!!! AND CHECk WHO WAS DOMINATING WHO BEFORE THERE INJURIES!!

Women's tennis is indeed becoming boring as hell. Is this now going to be the outcome for several years to come?! Always a Williams final? Those who are always preferring the women's game above the men's should reconsider their opinion.

There were only a few interesting matches: Seles - Henin, Callens- S. Williams and Mauresmo-Capriaty... The rest was so boring and predictable that we don't need sleeping pills anymore. We have found the ultimate cure.

Can you believe that I didn't even look at Justine's (one of my fav's) match against Venus and watched Henman against Sa instead? Me neither.

Justine and Amelie were playing much tougher opponents today than they faced in the QFs. Particularly, those opponents were faster, reaching many balls that were winners in the QFs.
