Does the USO produce the most exiting matches of the 4 slams??

Due in part to tennis channel's "uso classic's" it just seems to me that in recent years the USO has produced so many exciting and memorable matches( and involving top players no less):

Justine V Capriati 03 SF
Capriati V Serena 04 QF 26 64 64 if only for the drama and tension
Elena's back-to-back 3rd set TB wins over Mauresmo and Capriati in 04 QF& SF 46 64 76(1) & 60 26 76(5)
Kim V Venus 05 QF 46 75 61
Elena V Lindsay 05 QF 61 36 76(6)
Kim V Maria 05 SF 62 67(4) 63 if only for the amazing fight back from Maria would was bluntly being out played yet somehow dug in and epic fashion in which she saved triple match point was amazing rallies( 26 56 0-40 down)
06 was okay( 3 of the 6 sets in the SF were bagels !!) but it saw the arrival of diva JJ and the man handling of world number 1 Mauresmo by Maria
Venus V Jelena 07 QF 46 61 76(4)
Justine V Venus 07 SF 76(2) 64 ......amazing quality
Serena V Venus 08 QF 76(6) 76(7) such tense and tight with Venus blowing 10 set points!
Serena V Jelena 08 F 64 75 one of the best contested AND EXCITING Womens Slam Finals of recent memory...JJ had 53 40-15
Kim V Serena 09 SF 64 75 if only for the historic drama : (
Kim V Venus 10 SF 46 76(4) 64

Re: Does the USO produce the most exiting matches of the 4 slams??

The US Open has the biggest duds in terms of women's finals. The last final that went three sets was Steffi Graf-Monica Seles in 1995.

The Venus-Kim match in 2010 was a horror show. Such a hideous match to watch - very poor quality.

Otherwise, your list is fair.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

I would have said it is the slam that produces the worst quality matches. Especially the last couple of years.

Re: Does the USO produce the most exiting matches of the 4 slams??

In 2007 there were some great matches in the top half of the draw.
Since then it hasn't produced anything particularly good. 2009 was crappy and most of 2010 was too.
I prefered AO in the last couple of years.

Petrova | Sirotkina | Kleybanova | Serena | Gavrilova | Makarova | Pavlyuchenkova
Cibulková | Rybariková | Riske | Svitolina | Mladenovic | Kerber | Kvitova
Bencic | Konjuh | Kalinina | Kalinskaya | Zhuk | Potapova | Levashova | Vondrousova

Yep that's another you could add to the list........no one expected Kim to play that well so early out of retirement, no to mention BAGELING Venus Williams! Then for Venus to come right back with her own bagel was just epicness!

Matches become Memorable and exciting because the of names involved and the way the matches unfold.....quality matches don't equal classics.....a 1st Rd epic between to nobodies won't even make headlines where as a low quality 3 set nail bitter between 2 top seeds in the SF's WILL be remembered. That's just the way it goes

2001 QF Serena/Lindsay




one of the main matches (IMO) credited for starting the Serena Slam.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

Nah, Roland Garros does!
Additionally that tie break in the final set is simply outrageous

Yep, she selfdestructed so many times against Kimberly, where she would have won the whole tournament again.... and each time it was painful to see.......
