I find it annoying that People are saying Williams Finals are boring

Where there has been grand slams that other people have just gone to pieces in. French Open 2007, Us open 2007, Australian Open 2007 French Open 2005 Us Open 2005. French Open 2004. at least we will be seeing a match against two experienced players playing good tennis at the moment.

I honestly couldn't care less what was said about the final. I'd watch it even if I were the only person seated at Centre Court.

Re: I find it annoying that People are saying Williams Finals are boring

It all depends on who your favorites are. I thought Henin/Sharapova USO 06, Sharapova/Ivanovic OZ 08 were both boring but I am sure there were others who thought they were great.

Ebb and flows. This is a high tide for the Williams base. But hopefully all those people who find them boring will be bored quite often in the slams to come.

Re: I find it annoying that People are saying Williams Finals are boring

Finals have been really boring lately. There hasn't been a 3-set final since 2006 Wimbledon.
But from the past experiences, Williams finals haven't been too good in terms of tennis quality, but we'll see how this one goes.

I agree the 2006 final was an absolute thriller!!!

The 2004 one was also very memorable because you had a relative unknown (aka Underdog) against a very well known champion (aka Undertaker).

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 think so, WS finals are not really exciting, there is always more UE than Winners and I support them, it's just it's not always a good quality when they face each other but things can change BTW Sharapova vs Henin was really great, noone can contest that.

Not everyone in a Willams sisters fan, so there are bound to be people who find it boring.

No I find them interesting because you can see there's tension and respect between them!

Normally matches between the sisters are kinda crappy - which is a pity, because they should be good matches, but they usually end up being fizzers.
