Tennis is so boring w\o top Americans!!

Please come back Serena, Jennifer, Lindsay, Venus, tennis is so boring without you ladies battling it out. I remember the glory days from 2000-2003, with like 19 consecutive grand slams. We need you, who wants to see a boring russian, or belgium final??? Big snooze fest! I miss getting up and all nervous and excited waiting on Serena to battle it out with Jennifer and Lindsay and Venus taking it to each other.........Oh come back ladies, europeans are pretty boring! My rant for the day!!!

Jennifer is sorely missed ATM

Lindsay needs to get a move on too.

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

definitely not boring, even though I miss Jen so much too

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Makes me laugh this coming from an American. Tennis will be so boring w/o Kim & Justine too in a few years

But in the end, it's true, in a way. There was more competition and better-known girls, different characters.

Well i'm not talking about the Belgiums, they can actually play tennis! They're matches with the Americans are always competitive, it's the eastern europeans who can't even hold serve half the time! :-Even though I can't stand Kim and Justine, those are two bad bitches I must say. Not as bad as The Williams or Jennifer but still..............

You are experiencing something like Germany had a few years ago. Without ES it would be very hard for us, too. Male tennis is hardly on TV anywhere. So you see it's just really really tough. But if your are a fan of tennis and not only a fan of certain players, then you will continue enjoying the tour.

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!
