Undoubtedly, but that's not saying much. Djokovic-Murray is an horrific match up for men's tennis, with both of them cancelling themselves out throughout, and unable to hit outright winners without making a shit-load of errors first.

Na-Azarenka had some lovely ball-striking (especially from the former), but it was only relatively more enjoyable than the men's final. Especially with all the injury problems with Li which made it NID.

Re: AO13: So would you say the women's final was more enjoyable than the men's?

I enjoyed the men's more,overall it was a better match. I enjoy Djokovic- murray more than Murray-Nadal. At least Novak comes to the net sometimes and is willing to go for winners. Murray and Nadal just wait for opponent errors most of the time. I still quite like Murray though, because he can bring some great skill. I don't miss Nadal on the tour at all. Djokovic- Federer would have been the best match IMO.

Women's was good for drama, but was a bit of a mess! So sad for Li Na, but also felt sorry for Vika with the appalling crowd. That bullying kinda spoiled it for me.

I thought the mens final wasn't that great, considering I started getting tired after set two and wanted to sleep after that. The womens wasnt great either with the shit crowd, but drama wise it definitely had the upper-hand and Li Na made me laugh, which is good enough for me

Re: AO13: So would you say the women's final was more enjoyable than the men's?

I only saw bibs and bobs of the AO this year - concentrating on other things.

With regard to the finals both were a little lacklustre, but the women's had more drama, and the outcome was less certain for the major part of the match - something the men's wasn't after Novak won the 2nd set. As for enjoyment, as I didn't really care who won I wasn't as caught up in emotion as I have been previously.

Yes it does. BBC 2 makes for a guaranteed audience in the hundreds of thousands, some people will be watching it just because that is what the TV is showing. The poster I was replying to seemed to allege that no-one watched other than this board. You need to understand the context of a reply sometimes.

Also the BBC has shown the women's final on one of their two flagship channels for years. They would have ditched it by now if there was no audience, or sold/not taken up the rights like they did with the French Open Finals, an event which Serena doesn't regularly feature in incidentally.

No because Azarenka won which was bad and Murray lost which was good.
