So much for the Belgians 'saving' the tour.

I prefer it this way to be honest though.

Re: So much for the Belgians 'saving' the tour.

they both reached final of a grand slam, not too bad imo.
but true, they should back it up with more wins.

Well thats kinda what I mean, the real elite players only seem to be taking the Slams seriously, meanwhile with the majority of the smaller tournaments we stll have the high seeds tumbling out in early rounds. Its the same situation as last year.

Yes. Of the last two grand slam finals has featured one of them. Hard to imagine Roland Garros final without Henin. So there is nothing to complain about.

To be honest I didn't expect them to come back and 'save the tour.' I'm just glad their back and playing...

«Saving the WTA tour» was supposed to mean: 'an elite player doesn't lose to a random player'. Reaching grand slam finals is what Top 5-7 players do anyway.

So in this sense the Belgians are not fulfilling the role ascribed to them by some members of the tennisforum: they are not 'WTA saviors'. They are just among the best players. But that was obvious anyway, wasn't it?

Yes, but it wasn't the slams that needed saving. Allegedly it was the tour, with a horrorshow of worthless ones like Ana, JJ, Safina...(and an idiot blonde who couldn't even keep JJ from claiming the #1 spot )
