The Williams Sisters are making the women's game boring

They have come to a point where they can't lose to anyone on the tour unless they play an awful match. The only player who can beat Venus is Serena and no one can beat a healthy Serena when her game is on. Men's tennis has become much more interesting than women's tennis.

ugh, why do they all suck????????

I wasn't bored watching either of those matches. Sorry - but I don't agree at all.

I have CDO. It's like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, except in alphabetical order like it should be.

What's really mindnumbingly boring are these ENDLESS threads and posts on this board that accuse the Williams sisters of being boring. If you don't like them, fine. To each his/her own. But please find something USEFUL and interesting to post instead of this crap. How many times can this rancid dead horse of a topic be beaten anyway? (with many of the numbskulls who presently occupy this board it's clear that this is a rhetorical question).

Okay. Sure. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but does this shit ever end? This is even more boring than the tennis people accuse Venus of playing. Come on Venus...show them who's boss!!!

Ummm

The rest of the tour is making tennis "boring" because they can't step up to beat the Williams when they have an opportunity.

In any other sport the people enjoy watching the two best players/teams play for a major title. Tennis seems to be a strange exception.

I personally enjoy watching Venus and Serena take tennis to new levels.

Well croat123 - it is like this. Did you pray against an all Williams final? I don't blame anyone for praying to God for something - but when you pray to the devil - you'll neva get what you asked for - IMO.

You're right, Rayny. Venus and Serena are just going out there and playing their games. Are they supposed to start losing just to make some tennis fans satisfied? That's a joke. Don't get mad at the Williams sisters for winning. Get mad at the other players for losing.

Predictable posters are making WTAworld boring.

They have come to a point where they can't stop creating similar boring threads over and over after a williams win. The only original thing we see from these posters comes every 7 years. Watching a paint dry has become much more interesting than some WTAworld posters.

I am not a fan of either sister - in fact I got up at 5am this morning to cheer for Amelie and Lindsay but I thoroughly enjoyed both matches.....the tennis was great from all 4 girls. It's nice to see Amelie inparticular really play a brand of tennis so few players have the smarts or the skill to pull off and it almost won her the match.

I don't like the way the sisters play but their intensity and agression will only bring out the best in other players sooner or later.

Lindsay's returning today was an example of that - I have rarely seen her be return that well!

Larry Scott is a moron.

Is it the Williams Sisters or those that just can't raise their level to beat either/or both of the sisters???

Place the blame where it belongs that is if there is anyone to blame....

get a grip

CONGRATULATIONS VENUS AND SERENA

oh get OVER IT.

We are priviledged to watch not just to watch one player raise the bar for the entire tour, but to watch TWO battle to see who gets to raise it the highest.

They are a gauntlet thrown to the rest of the tour, and the players are already starting to rise to the challenge.

You cannot say you love tennis and not appreciate what we're seeing.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.
