Anyone else thinks this RG is ridiculous?

I wouldn't deny I'm so bitter now. My faves are all gone. But the fact that a lot of top 10s were out before QF is just ridiculous. Never seen something like this in decades, I think. WTA

Wouldn't be surprised if Sara Errani wins it.

Re: Anyone else thinks this RG is ridiculous?

The fact that the Prize Money is quite the same as a Premier Mandatory. I thought this tournament was a Premier Mandatory instead of a grandslam. The seeds are out too and hardly anything to watch. So I'm getting bored. However I still watch for my Stosur, Kim Na Na, and Sharapova.

Assuming Stosur, Sharapova, Li & Kvitova wins there R16 match, there are still 5 top 10 players in the QF.

Except for Careerslampova, I wouldn't put my money on them.

Re: Anyone else thinks this RG is ridiculous?

Give credit to the opponents though. Kanepi, Cibulkova, and Kuznetsova are no slouches on clay and have superior clay records than their respective opponents. Only Serena's loss was . So yeah, maybe they are a BIT unlucky

Only Maria winning can save this slam now

Supporting useless players before it was cool.

Re: Anyone else thinks this RG is ridiculous?

If you watched the clay season I don't think any of these early exits are particularly shocking except for the Serena bombshell Azarenka and Radwanska were visibly poor on clay compared to HC, Bartoli has been a disaster the entire clay season, and Wozniacki is always a joke on clay. Errani has won 3 tournaments and hasn't lost to anyone on clay who wasn't in the top 10 so her QF isn't surprising either

Re: Anyone else thinks this RG is ridiculous?

it is not that much of a surprise except Serena ... the Holy CAV trio (Caro, Aga, Vika) suck on clay ... since JuJu retired, the most consistent clay players are Na, Maria, Petra, Sam and Fran who are all still here except Fran

Re: Anyone else thinks this RG is ridiculous?

RG is ridiculous? Or do you mean WTA is ridiculous?
If it's the latter case, then as RenaSlam. said, deal with it, it's WTA.

No. I think the WTA tour with its hard court obsession that promotes one dimensional players who lack the variety of skills to play on different surfaces is ridiculous.

You make it sound like this applies to the WTA only
