Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

Honestly, it's not even JUST that this Slam was bad/boring, it's that it seems kind of surreal. There just didn't seem to be any flow to it whatsoever. We had Maria and Serena apparently both playing great before suddenly bombing out when few expected it, then when it looked like we had a great storyline emerging in Na playing great to win the title, suddenly that stuttered to a halt too. And, even though Vika deserved the title because she did what she had to do, personally I would've enjoyed her win more if she'd atleast played great tennis to win it, but even her fans concede she was well below her best.

Overall it was just a very drab and weird tournament, and there were no storylines for us to sink our teeth into, if that makes sense. And it feels like all the fans have been left feeling crabby and unfulfilled by the tournament, and the same goes for the players, judging by how (according to the GM drama queens), Maria, Serena and Radwanska are all firing shots, and the fact even Azarenka seemed more upset than happy after winning the title just about sums everything up.
