Re: Does Anyone Think That the US Open Is Boring Without Sharapova?
The implication of the premise of this thread in the abstract is that a slam without the presence of a Top 5 ranked player lessens the excitement of the tournament. This might be true if the missing top ranked player is in form and a threat to capture the title. However in the case of Maria, considering her performance (?) at Wimbledon and the subsequent one losing match since would suggest that she would not have been a factor in this tournament even if free of injury. Thus by definition the question of the thread must be answered in the negative.
