Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

So, I think I'm going to take another break from the WTA / Tennisforum The quality of tennis this past couple of weeks has just been atrocious. And it'll no doubt be more of the same at the USO. I'm sitting here watching this Cincinnati semifinal (Na had a 3-18 ratio in the 1st set ) and just thinking why am I watching this.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

True, Aga vs Lisicki at Wimbledon and Maria vs JJ, Maria/Sloane at RG are pretty much the only matches I've really enjoyed this season since the early hard court swing.

Although I quite enjoyed last nights Vika/Caro, some very good tennis played even though there was lots of bad.

I honestly don't think it was ever even this bad in 2010-11, at the height of the Vulture/Void Era.

Well, people got what they wished for now: No more Woz and back to unforced errors galore. Back to what TF regards as attractive tennis.

Serena was involved in the three best female tennis matches of the year. Her vs Lisicki, Her vs Kuznetsova and to a lesser extent Her vs Maria in Miami were all incredible matches. Maria vs Aze at the RG was messy but at least entertaining. The quality of play overall, especially this last month, has been dismal. That can't be denied. When Serena, Maria and Azerenka aren't playing their best at the same time the entire field is greatly lacking. That Aze-Jelena semi is just the peak of pathetic tennis.

On another note, here's the new top-five-er Berdych in a ridiculous shirt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GR2...wN7Or4kIJDYNXA

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

2012 > 2013
And it's got nothing to do with Serena dominating because she dominated last year. Roland Garros was the only entertaining slam with a few scrappy three-setters. Idk I'm just waiting for this year to be over and done with and for 2014 to reignite these bitches

IKR her season so far has been so .. uneventful. Nothing really exciting except that IW-Miami swing and the three set matches at Stuttgart and RG

Even in those two matches, the actual quality of tennis was poor, it's just the drama that made them entertaining.

It's such a shame (and a weird) turn of events that we followed up 2012, which imo was the best year for the WTA in ages, with one of the worst. I never thought I'd catch myself saying this, but it's honestly an insult that the women are getting the same prizemoney as the men with the huge gulf in quality between them right now.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

What's more dull than Nadal? The insistence that he's dull. Let it go already people. Besides, at the very least even his bigger haters must admit he's more entertaining than Murray.

Yes, there were upsets on the men's side, but there were good matches. The top players not winning does not mean there wasn't quality play.

I would've agreed a while ago, but I actually find Murray (since he occasionally started playing aggressively from the start of 2012) more entertaining than Nadal thesedays I wouldn't actually mind if Rafa was playing legitimate GOAT tennis like he was in 2008, but he's not even been playing that well this year, he's not even been willing to chase down every single ball like he used to. It's similar to Serena's results the past couple of years, the other players are constantly fawning over them and going on how about GOATly they are that they go out there believing there's nothing they can do, and even in matches where they outplay them, they always inevitably crap themselves at crunch time.
