No good matches and no upsets. Blah. Both womens and mens draw.

I agree. I haven't watched a single decent match today. Hopefully it will pick up tomorrow.

Re: First day has been a total bore so far...

I just hope that Sveta is in the first category, i.e. playing a good match, rather than in the second, i.e. in the upset match

Re: First day has been a total bore so far...

I was hoping tomorrow would pick up as most of my favourites are playing, but for some reason Jeremy and Gilles arent. Still, im hoping Lisicki and Rezai is a cracker. Hopefully Sabs is match-fit enough for it, rather then another Roland Garros situation.

I enjoyed the Sugiyama/Stosur match. Not a classic but I'll tkae players regularly in the vicinity of the net.

Re: First day has been a total bore so far...

you should be a chak fan, another heart attack 3 setter.

seriously a less than stellar 1st week is cool with me, you want big names in the 2nd week for a cracking tournament.

Shaughnessy's thrilling upset will be on later
Anyways, you have Sharapova-Pironkova tomorrow which should be a close match.

Re: First day has been a total bore so far...

I like it. No upsets is good early on, gives us much better matches in the latter rounds. ^^ I mean, there will definetly be some interesting third round matches if the seeds hold. Except for clijsters and Dokic and some other exceptions.

Re: First day has been a total bore so far...

I agree with other posters, I'd rather it was boring now, and all the big names made the 2nd week.

Much more exciting potential match ups
