Re: Sunday Night Matches Are So Boring

I like both those matches over most of the day matches

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Sunday Night Matches Are So Boring

The marquee matchups during Labor Day weekend are played in the day at the US Open. It's been like this forever.

Re: Sunday Night Matches Are So Boring

I still don't understand after all these years how people don't understand that the U.S. Open puts the best matches on Saturday and Sunday during the day because of CBS. Kim-Ana, Venus-Peer, and Nadal-Simon were the three marquee matches for American audiences so that's why they're on during the day.

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

Re: Sunday Night Matches Are So Boring

Besides, what's wrong with those matches? Out of the three women's matches, Lena vs Stosur looks the most promising to me

Youhzny vs Isner is a snoozefest - I love ATP too but I would not want to watch that

Yeah, and I'll probably clean the toilets during Kim and Baby Hippo's match.

Re: Sunday Night Matches Are So Boring

The ladies match might be good. Will there be TV? I don't think tonight there is TV (in the US); luckily, they are streaming from the USO now. But, I don't disagree, the Sunday night matchups haven't always been the most interesting.

Re: Sunday Night Matches Are So Boring

If you have a TV you have CBS. Tennis Channel is a premium channel. Plus who wants to see Isner , Elena D and Stosur over Venus, Clijsters, Rafa and Ivanovic??
