is USO the least entertaining slam of 2013?

after a day none of SF threads made it to 200 posts the only QF that was somehow discussed was a double bagel...

i'm not asking is it the worst slam, just doesn't it seem the most dull? wimbledon had lots of upsets and a new winner, FO and AO were both miles ahead.

Re: is USO the least entertaining slam of 2013?

2013 has been an underwhelming year in general not just US Open, 2011 was all about the new slam champs, 2012 was all about serena's comeback.

this year is just a bit meh.

edit: 2010 was all about the Empress' last true show of form before tanking the whole year for doubles '13.

Re: is USO the least entertaining slam of 2013?

Results from QF and SF:
64 67 62
60 60
64 61
62 63
60 63
64 62

the final set never went further than 63, only one somewhat leveled match, could it be any worse? Vika and Serena are probably paid now by WTA to play an entertaining 3 setter.

it wasn't good but it sure as hell was entertaining - lots of upsets, very good matches with lisicki, new slam finalist, new slam winner.

Re: is USO the least entertaining slam of 2013?

All the slams this year have been underwhelming.
Wimbledon probably got the most attention because of all the seeds flopping, everyone falling over, Serena being beat by Lisicki and Marion coming out of nowhere and snatching a win. AO was known more for it's injuries and Maria's double bagels. RG had Sveta/Rena Maria/Vika and USO has had flops and uninteresting matches. IMO the most dramatic was Vee/Zheng and Vika/Ajde. Only a three setter final will save the USO but in terms of drama I'd say

Wimbledon > RG > AO > USO


And trust Maria to always be on Sam L's mind ↓

Re: is USO the least entertaining slam of 2013?

Hard to say, but I'm personally disappointed by the fact Serena and Vika weren't more challenged than that.

The attitude of Alizé Cornet winning the first set against Vika remains one of the best moments to me. She may not be a Top 10 player, but certainly has a Top 3 fighting spirit. Found her first serves on crucial points in Serena fashion. Now that was entertaining. Too bad she didn't win the match. There was like a difference of size somehow. I would enjoy a lot to see her doing better and better in the future, if no injury occurs. She's a treat.

It's been an underwhelming, damp squid of a tournament really.

Lets hope for another battle between Serena and Vika though!

Re: is USO the least entertaining slam of 2013?

AO is MILES ahead in entertainment.
With everything that happened in that...

US Open has been mediocre so here's hoping a final will slightly redeem it.

The first rounds were exciting. Lots of new players (to me, anyway).

Re: is USO the least entertaining slam of 2013?

USO used to have entertaining matches up until around 2007 (apart from Sveta -v- Chak), but since then it seems to have gone downhill.

The AO for me is the most entertaining; maybe because I've been starved of tennis for a while due to the off season

There are always so many entertaining matches - WTA and ATP. Everyone seems quite keen and energised.
