You think DelPo didn't deserve his USO '09 title? Or if you're a Fed fan who really thinks like that, I want to remind that with that logic, Fed didn't deserve his Wim '09 title. Would you really have liked to have those matches over in three sets? I'd rather have Bo5 for women than Bo3 for men.

Then maybe the big three should step up their 3 set game. And the only place they play five is at the slams. So should their other titles be thrown out?

If you play three sets and don't bring your A game yes you deserve to lose if you don't win the next two.

Playing best of three means that you don't have "cushion" sets to round ass in. If you lose the first set in a best of three, the pressure is much more intense than losing the first set in a best of five.

i still don't get how just because you can tank more sets means you're putting in more effort..some men are VERY unfit, have poor tactics, ballbash, etc that we criticise the women of...just because they have 5 sets to display how poor they are doesn't mean it's more quality
I never said that deliberately going for 5 sets is a smart tactic Who knows what those mugs are thinking when they tank few sets

Well, think about the pressure when you're two sets down. I know, Bo3 would give more pressure for top players and bring more surprise wins, but is it the purpose of slams? I don't think so, I think slams are enough interesting without surprises, I want to see who is the best, which can't properly be decided with Bo3. And Bo5 makes surprise wins more deserved.

The only thing I don't like in Bo5 is that it's gotten too much of a endurance thing, slower surfaces mean longer points. But solution is simple, speed up the courts.

Re: Tipsarevic continues to be pressed about women's tennis

The best of 5 sets is not played in the Master Series. If those results aren't definitive enough what's the point of the tour. It sucks so bad in a grand slam when someone is playing say an electrifying 5 setter and then their next match then go down in 3 easy sets because the last one they haven't recovered from, then what's the point.

Enough of the best of 5 in the grand slams and save it to the finals for both men and women.

Probably something like "Yuck, women aren't even capable of finishing their best-of-3 matches"

There are a couple of reasons why M1000s are played with Bo3. First of all, in slams you usually play every second day, in M100s you play every day, thus you have less recovery time and bo5 would be too much. And M1000s prestige is far below slams, fluke champios aren't such a bad thing, so you can have more TV channel friendly Bo3 format.

Why final should be any different, there have been many tournaments where eventual champion's toughest opposition has been in SF.

Re: Tipsarevic continues to be pressed about women's tennis

some notes from Steve Tignor
Quote:
Occupy Tennis?

That’s the question posed by Doug Robson in a USA Today story about the growing income gap between the top men and the rest of the field. Robson crunches the numbers and finds that over the past five years, the Top 3 have taken home between 20 and 26 percent of available prize money, more than any trio since the ATP was re-launched in 1990. ATP chief Brad Drewett chalks it up to their domination on court, but some lower-ranked players think it’s a trend that’s getting worse and needs to be addressed.

Prize money has risen more quickly on the main tour than it has the Challenger tour. Roger Federer says that tournaments like the huge winner’s check because it’s “sexy”; last year Larry Ellison added $700,000 to the pot at his tournament in Indian Wells, but stipulated that it had to go to the players who made the quarterfinals or better.

One player who defends the system is American Ryan Harrison. “People don’t love tennis because of Challenger-level tennis,” he says. “People don’t follow the Challenger players. It’s a stepping stone that’s a process you know you have to go through.”
i will add " People don't love tennis because of Tipsarevic/Stakhovsky-level of tennis"

We can also add that people who watch only finals are not tennis fans. If you like tennis, you will watch lower-ranked players as well.

Janko would say: How DOES the #1 seed go out of the tournament before the semis! (Berdych d. Federer).
