The Americans don't know in tennis!!!

The match of Yanina was a quater final with nice rallys... But you had the feeling nobody is playing. They were just not reacting at any shot! The Americans want stars! Not tennis! Pity. The best public in the world is the english in wimbledon, they admire every point no matter who plays, and then the French!

Besides dumping on the Americans, what is the point of your thread.

So you were checking people to see if they are really paying attention?
Isn't that a bit too much?

You have to eat sometime...
But I don't get why your making such a big deal of it. Maybe they just didn't like the match..
Yanina did her best, but Bondarenko wasn't playing well at all.

Good luck for the 2016 season:

• Ana Ivanovic
• Angelique Kerber
• Kiki Bertens


Maria Sharapova, Caroline Wozniacki, Serena Williams, Petra Kvitova, Jelena Jankovic, Kristina Mladenovic

Re: The Americans don't know in tennis!!!

If I had been in the crowd I wouldn't have been too engrossed in the match either-and its not like either player did much to try and get the crowd on their side anyway.
I can't wait to see the 2nd QF-the crowd are going to be going mental

"And thanks to all the people around the world for supporting me, and my fan club, I could feel your support no matter where I was in the world. Thank you for your devotion. Most importantly, thanks to my family, especially my mom. You've been very supportive, encouraging, inspiring... you were always there for me. It was a long way and we did it together. I love you mom. It's so emotional. It's so hard to say goodbye. I'm going to miss you so much"

I think the author of the thread, kaghat, may have some unresolved issues with the Americans. Period.

I don't understand this overreaction. It seem a personal affront that the hapless and know-nothing americans are not paying attention to his or her favorite player.

That's actually not true. But I can see why the crowd was quiet, I mean this could be a first round match on Court 6 and there'd be about three hundred people (if that) watching, so in a big stadium, just not many people are interested. I'm addicted to the Open, yet I didn't even bother to watch or check the result because I really didn't care .

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenches! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet
