It's *BORING*

I know they have fans that disagree, but for me this is totally boring.

There is one thing that I really love in this world, and now that every final is "graced" by these hand-crafted machines, I can get no joy from it.

If you like it, fine. But don't go spouting crap about how great this is for the sport - it's not. People keep saying that it's great that the Williams sisters bring "diversity" to the tennis world.

Where is the diversity when two players always meet, and one player always wins.

It's boring.

Are they good? Yes. Does it matter? No.

I can see why you would think that, given you don't like the WS, but would you really be bored if it was your two fav players in 4 grandslams :-) Just wondering.

I actually understand you Scott...

I wouldn't like if for example, Hingis and Capriati reaching the finals of every Grand Slam.. I would hate it and do exactly what u did..

But now I ask you, what can you do about it? You just have to accept it cause there's actually nothing you can do about it except supporting your favourites to play better and break their streak! I'm sure you wouldn't stop to watch tennis.. But I'm sure you will miss this final..

Well too bad

But you won't take away our (Williams fans) happiness!!


GOOOO SERENA!! The *Serena Slam* is still alive!!

For the people attacking me, I really couldn't care less. I'm entitled to my opinion.

Serena winning doesn't make any of you special. Does it really feel that good to back a winner? I've been cheering for the underdog in the women's tour for a long time. Maybe I actually have the self-awareness to know that I don't need to judge my success on other people?

I'm just saying to me it's boring. To others too. If you don't think so, that's fine. But you have no right to attack me.

And TopShotta, please take your racist ass out of my thread. Thanks.

You are right. It's boring but also very painful for Kim, Jennifer, Lindsay, Justine or Martina fans. (or amelie or daniela or jelena or monica, etc.) Everybody who thinks that total dominance is good for the sport is crazy. Again, it's up to the other girls to play more courageously. But the Williams sisters definitely have their own ways of rubbing it in the other girls' face.

I for one wasn't attacking you, I agree with you that when two players are at the top of the game and they are always winning and you don't like them, of course it is boring to you, at least if one of the Belgians had made it through you would have someone to root for. I couldn't stand Hingis in her hey day, why b/c she was kickin my favs ass, and I don't think I would have been interested in seeing Hingis and her little sis play in every final for a year either.

Look, the sisters aren't doing anything else then what our favourite are trying to accomplish.
I think that they are helping tennis, coz see were Kim was before the sisters started their domination and look at her now. She has beaten Serena and then again proven herself by having matchpoint up against her.

Relax and enjoy, now when Hingis isn't playing I can acctually see how well the sisters (and Kimmie + Juju) are playing

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
