Re: Why Williams vs Williams matches are always so boring?

Well that's because it's so formiliar, I had to say, this match was pretty boring and other matches were exciting. I guess it's also got to do with the errors. But it had more than 15 superb winners.

I zzzzzed through the whole match until the last few games when it finally picked up. The whole match should have been like the end.

If it's always so boring as you said, then why the hell did you watch it?

I did not watch the match because I knew it was boring many years ago. When they play each other I change the channel or shut down the TV.

Re: Why Williams vs Williams matches are always so boring?

if they could play a full match like a few of the amazing points they DID have, it would be thouroughly entertaining

Hantuchova Dokic
Petkovic Li Clijsters Jankovic Lisicki
Kvitova Wawrinka Gasquet Nalbandian

Because there's no rivalry, no drama, no intense moments. They're sisters...and it's going to be the same when the Radwanskas play each other, the Bondarenkos, etc etc.

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!

I've always wondered the same thing.

*Venus*Serena*Kuznetsova*Schiavone*Taylor*Bartoli* *A.Bondarenko*Zheng*Duval*Safarova*Kirilenko*

*Federer*Nadal*Djokovic*Tsonga*Murray*Monfils*Gulb is*Young*Wawrinka*Mirnyi*

Sometimes sado-masochistic instincts are so irresistible.

Re: Why Williams vs Williams matches are always so boring?

It was going to 3 sets anyway as predicted. It's not set up but it's weird. One set apiece is fine. Venus has 2 sets behind her belt and still has a chance to qualify. I never take WS matches very seriously.
