This is the best RG final in a few years

The quality is better than the crap we've had in recent years, comparatively speaking.

All of you who decided to skip this are missing (at least on a better match than in the lats what 7-8 years)

Re: This is the best RG final in a few years

I thought the Australian Open final was pretty good. And the 2008 US Open final was high quality. But yeah this is the best French Open final in a decade .

Not a great match by any means but shiteloads better than the tripe we've been served up over the last few years.

Re: This is the best RG final in a few years

Yeah, its pretty good so far. Since i started watching tennis, the Kim-Jennifer final in 2001, is the best by far at the french.

No, not great, but at least I'm not groaning and rolling my eyes at the quality like I do every year...

Re: This is the best RG final in a few years

It's because the two players are on an equal footing. Previously , there was one player vastly better than the other in all of them or there were Safina or Dementieva on the other end.

Re: This is the best RG final in a few years

It's just that everyone assumed, "Oh noes... Stosur vs. Schiavone what a shite final that's going to be..."

Re: This is the best RG final in a few years

Much better than seeing Henin beat up on her lesser beings, true.

Re: This is the best RG final in a few years

I think it is too soon to say
Fran's play has leveled off and Stosur has found her range.
It could be a runaway in the 2nd set.

Re: This is the best RG final in a few years

We're about to have two 3-Set finals in a row from having none for so long.

Re: This is the best RG final in a few years

Since I started watching tennis (not so long ago) this is probably the best Slam final. I also liked JJ-Serena at USO, I'm not a big fan of Henin-Serena this year.
