AO13: So would you say the women's final was more enjoyable than the men's?

For those who watched, how would you rate the women's in comparison?

Women's final was so much better. They deserve more pay than men.

Yes, more drama

Yes, it was.

Not really for the quality of tennis, more for the drama behind it (and the fact I had a bet on it, and won). The men's tournament this year was way better than the women's though, overall.

Is the product you manufacture found in your kitchen?

Men's was more about tennis. Women's was more about drama and as usual the winner -not the one who played better.

It was more about shoes & feet than tennis.

After Djokovic's comeback against Wawrinka I knew no one was beating him here, Rafa could have given him a run for his money but even that is kinda laughable considering Novak beat him last year.

Women's final wasn't a NID final like the men's so it was better IMHO.

They were both not quality finals, but yes, the WTA final had more drama so it was more enjoyable. The match itself was poor and Murray-Djokovic play boring matches. Li and Murray were injured in their matches which meant the final set of both matches were more or less NID.

Slow HC's make for boring tennis.
