My US Open ruined in 24 hours!

First Laura Robson wasn't quite able to pull off the upset because Stosur was just too experienced. Then I watched Petra Kvitova capitulate to Marion Bartoli overnight, now I've just watched Angelique Kerber not knowing how to deal with Sara Errani's slow serve, extreme topspin and slow shots

Commmiserate with me Anyone else's US Open ruined after just four rounds this year??

Re: My US Open ruined in 24 hours!

I feel for you, mine was 90% over after R1, sucks if you look forward to a tournament this long and it all falls apart.

Luckily Vika has been saving it from being a total disaster so far

Mine was pretty much destroyed after the first round

All I need is another beatdown for Masha in the final to make it officially the worst US Open ever

Re: My US Open ruined in 24 hours!

It's a good opportunity though to find new players to root for.

For me personally, it's actually a great US Open until now, especially the 4th round.

Re: My US Open ruined in 24 hours!

I still have faith in Serena

and potential in doubles with Shushu and Su-Wei

but overall this tournament was quite dissapointing, yeah.

Re: My US Open ruined in 24 hours!

Yeah, I've felt that. But...I always find myself watching the rest of the tournament.

Re: My US Open ruined in 24 hours!

Nope. Ivanovic, Serena, Sharapova, Azarenka all still in.

Plus, Vinci-Radwanska is going to be interesting to watch, regardless.

Next stop: Roland Garros

Ana ('08 RG), Serena (21), Venus (7), Petra (2), Angie ('16 AO)
Vika (2), Sveta (2), Simona, Garbi, Ka. Pliskova
Aussie Kim, Mahree (2), Monica (9), Dokic, Sandrine, Jie

I have to cheer for Azarenka. Everyone else is gone. US Open are over now. Next week Quebec with Barthel.

Re: My US Open ruined in 24 hours!

Mine was pretty much done in round 2. Slava and Tsonga went out on the same day Only get Del Potro left, and he doesn't look convincing

Shvedova-Muguruza-Garcia-Lisicki
