EastBourne 2008 = Joke?

Lindsay is out (injury). Sveta is out (defeated). Mauresmo is out (injured).

This once prestigious tournament now feels like a joke. Whoever wins this... while deserved, it doesn't seem right.

Anyone thinking the same thing? Or it's just me?

Re: EastBourne 2008 = Joke?

it is seriously sucking so far, if im not going to watch my favourite players then i at least wanna see quality players instead, eastbourne now has neither.

the draw looks horrid, and with vera on the brink of losing now its getting worse.

Re: EastBourne 2008 = Joke?

It was always a joke from the time the draw was made.

That said, I don't really mind it. Mainly because I have one player left to support.
