Re: The 2008 Hard Court Season: Forget Wimbledon! It's Time for the Olympics and USO
Well, I'm officially going to the USO for the third and fourth round instead of Championship Weekend (which I went to last year). While I would love to see Ana win the tournament (if she got to that point), I don't want to take any chances. Also, last year's WTA final was so boring that I don't want to risk another boring one. The Chak-Kuz SF was also terrible, so the Venus-Henin showdown was the only worthwhile match I saw last year. The ATP matches were better, but it was still a relatively boring weekend.
Looking back, though, I guess I saw the last "great" match of Henin's career, and the sheer excitement and skill on display in the SF almost made the entire weekend worth it.
