Uhm, in case anybody forgot...the two most influential and significant players of our generation are playing tomorrow. They're SISTERS.

Let them eat cake.

Bangalore had a weak draw but the Williams Sisters and Yan have really made it a solid tournament.

Much better than Antwerp in comparison.

I swear Jankovic was playing...:S Two top ten players and Serena Williams isn't that weak. Better than half the tournaments out there!

Bangalore is a WTA tournament. Las Vegas is a challenger. I don't know why people will persist in posting match threads from LV in General Messages when there is a Challengers Forum. Las Vegas is just a challenger, so obviously Bangalore is more exciting as more exciting players are there, simple as.

Agreed, I think the mods should delete these challenger threads... Most of the people in GM doesn´t care about challengers (except when Dokic and Sesil are playing!)

Aren't you the guy that said in another thread that you thought only 50-100 ladies actually played tennis? (search for it under your posts, edit it quick)

All of todays top players have played ITF tournaments previously, infact most where very solid and because of that they had a relatively easy progression through to being a top 50 and then top 20 player.

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

No i don´t remember that... anyway, the other one said there is a challenger forum somewhere, so it isn´t really necessary to post these results in GM

Re: More exciting: Tier II Bangalore or 50K Las Vegas?

Vegas. To me Venus, Serena, or Jelena winning in Bangalore isnt a big deal to either one of them only Yan. In Vegas you have Asia and Madison who are young americans going for their 1st title and that more exciting to me. I could careless who wins Bangalore but Vegas I'm pulling for two people that winning this title is gonna be a big deal for them. That how I see it.
