Lindsay is out (injury). Sveta is out (defeated). Mauresmo is out (injured).

This once prestigious tournament now feels like a joke. Whoever wins this... while deserved, it doesn't seem right.

Anyone thinking the same thing? Or it's just me?

it is seriously sucking so far, if im not going to watch my favourite players then i at least wanna see quality players instead, eastbourne now has neither.

the draw looks horrid, and with vera on the brink of losing now its getting worse.

Same thing could be said of the 2008 Roland Garros tournament :shrug:

It was always a joke from the time the draw was made. :lol:

That said, I don't really mind it. Mainly because I have one player left to support. :)

your right. it was the same with birmingham last week aswell, the british grass court tournements have been a joke this year. and what with the ridiculous seedings for next week, wimbledon is bound to be a disaster aswell.

Only this year.

Last year Rosmalen had 5 of the top ten which was amazing for a tier 3 and much better than Eastbourne which only had only 3 I think so I think last year Rosmalen was better than Eastbourne too.

And this year, Eastbourne :help:

I am going on Friday for the semis but it looks like it will be a washout! :umbrella:

I'm sort of hoping that Radwanska, Petrova or Wozniacki can take this tournament by the scruff of the neck, I want all three to be in those semis. As long as it's better than the terrible Clijsters v Dushevina final I saw a few years ago! :help:

well it's all down to the top players and they just don't want to play it because there too busy glory hunting for grand slams,gotta feeling the BBC won't be impressed on saturday when it comes to showing the final on there main tv station and find theres no star attraction for viewers,they will probaley stick it on bbc interactive instead.
