Are GS Qualifying matches supposed to be this boring?

Seriously, I've been watching several AO qualies and I am appalled at the lack of quality in the matches. No excitement whatsoever. The rallies are just plain horrendous. And the serving? don't even get me started on it.

The players are partly 200 upwards. What do you expect from them?

They decided to put matches featuring lower ranked Aussie WCs on the livestream instead of the better, more interesting matches. So this is what you get.

Rankings don't matter. I've seen ITF junior matches which are far more exciting with far superior quality. These are GS qualifying matches, at least they should live up to expectation.

Shame that they don't put Lisicki vs Krajicek in the show court, it should be much more interesting.

This is normal tennis. If you don't like it go find another sport to follow. I for one certainly would not miss you on this forum.

because only the matches of WC aussies are streamed who are not even TOP300.
I hope that when they are OUT, they will stream better matches.

That is normal tennis for spectators with low appreciation for the sports like yourself. You are one of the many reasons why the quality of the entire sport is messy.

Or Watson vs. Mladenovic.

Confusion will be my epitaph

If by Aussies you mean scrubs then that is just unfortunate. Margaret Court and Evon Goolagong would be embarrassed with such performances.

Re: Are GS Qualifying matches supposed to be this boring?

Agreed. The Diatchenko vs Raj-whatever match was absolutely horrendous. These girls calls themselves professionals? I see higher quality matches between old yuppies at my club on a daily basis. And the Aussie commentators had the audacity to say that the Aussie girl has a bright future...

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori
