Amelia Island is more exciting than IW and Miami combined..

For a supposedly boring tournament, we got 3 thrillers in one day. First, Amelie fights and wins in a 3rd set breaker,then Maria fights and wins in a 3rd set breaker,then Lindsay fights from a break down in the 3rd to win.


A shame we couldn't see any of it though.

A tournament with no TV coverage can't be exciting.

Agree (because Masha is here and plays good matches, also Momo with great fights and Lindsay won, too)!

Re: Amelia Island is more exciting than IW and Miami combined..

Let's not get ahead of ourselves, now. I didn't see anybody with the first name "Venus" or "Serena" in the draw. It can't be that exciting.

Then again, there might be a thread on their decision not to play this tournament.

Even without coverage, it's been quite exciting. Alot of great players in AI, more than enough to have an exciting tournament!

The problem with IW and Miami is that they are so drawn out. It takes forever to get to the business end of the tournament. They should just be 1 week tournaments. Only Grand Slams should be 2 weeks IMO.

Agreed. Give me bad three-setters over bad two-setters anyday.

Well Serena was the only one who made Miami exciting And Venus' hiatus is bringing more drama to this week so they're helping this week without even playing

The level of play is much better and the matches are much more exciting. I just wish there was more TV coverage of the early rounds.

I don't really call what FSN showed a "coverage" I got to see only one match from IW and two from Miami.

Exactly.

And I was thinking to make a thread about this too.
All kinds of exciting matches, filled stadiums, crazy players making comebacks, some finally showing their potential, some hardcourters refusing to give up on the dirt.

It's so cool we'll get to see how Masha and Alona handle their match after both had tough 3 setters today.
And then hopefully hopefully hopefully we'll get to see Szavay try to take down Mama Dav!
