I know nobody cares, but I'm sure a lot of people won't be watching it either. I'll, however, will be hoping that Davenport or Capriati win it...
The Belgians are great, but a bore, except for the belgian viewers. With Venus and Serena out, it won't be the same, that's an understatement... u know why... because they have made so many grand slam finals in the past 2 years, and so, watching anything below the best in a grand slam final(knowing that a Williams would be in one of them if they played) is not excactly 'fun'.
The winner will for surely face questions 'if the Williams sisters would have been here....'
I know it's not the other players' fault,... but the ratings I think will blow!...
Good luck to Davey and Cappy in the Us Open, also Mauresmo...

Nice. Sorry to lose you, you would really have contributed something to the viewing of the US Open. But if you don't watch, could you promise me something? Get a ticket and go see Lopez and Stepanek play on an outside court in the first round in the men's event. Yes, they won't have "USA" in brackets next to their name, it's shocking I know, but try and cope with it and enjoy the match. Cheers!

Whoops! Ok, er... try and catch Ginepri and Martin if they potentially play in the third round. Yes, that's right, those are two players who do have "USA" in brackets next to their name, shocking I know.

Hasty back-track executed with efficiency and minimum disruption...

Well, he's Canadian. So, I mean...*shrug* :p

And your point still stands. You know, I always want everyone to play the majors, and I feel bad for people when their favorites pull out, but really...there are still 128 diverse and extraordinary players in the draw. Surely, if you like watching tennis, you can watch one or two for fun?

Such an ugly and pretty matchup... should be interesting. I'll be sure to go and take some pictures of Radek for you, as I know he's a personal fave of yours!

Ah, right. Tricky - what to suggest to the Canuck who doesn't like anything?

It's just like that article on here about the Open being worthless without the Williamses or Sampras. What a way to dismiss 253 world-class tennis players with a few mindless taps of a computer keyboard.

I didn't realize how few tennis fans we had...and how many Williams-only fans we had here.

Well, I got a nice big closeup of Lips signing autos for the kiddies in Cincinnati to tide all Stepanek fans over until Becca comes through with her promise here :D

Hmm, Bagel Boy vs Granny Tennis. I didn't think anything could be worse than Schuettler vs Martin in Cincy, but this sounds worse . . .

Well the reason I support Cappy and Davey is that this is for one of them a chance! A huge chance to win it all, or at least have a great showing. Davenport has got nothing on Serena and Venus, harsh, but a fact, and neither does Jen on Serena(hasn't played Venus in two years). And although they have been struggling with the Belgians, they will be playing at 'home', so maybe that will raise their spirits and raise their game... Lets face it, Kim and Justine are playing superb, and they are young and have a lot they will achieve in their tennis career, but Jen and Linds are almost done, and plus, I've never really liked Justine, and Kim taking my fave's ranking without deserving it more than Serena(though not Kim's fault that rankings don't reflect quality) doesn't make her on top of my list. Plus I started watching tennis when I saw Venus, why should I watch the other girls who are below her, when I can simply play tapes...

I bet all of you are going to be glued to your TV sets (so stop being melo-dramatic about it...what must Monica Seles fans be saying right now). Noone would spend as much time as all of you on a tennis message board and then not watch an event b/c two players were not playing (who cares about Sampras?--I thought everyone thought he was boring)

Sports is a about timming...its about luck also...and being fit at very important times...Think of a star athlete missing the olympics b/c of an injury.

In the end noone remembers who was injured...they remember the win...

It's about ratings. I won't be helping their cause. Why should I. I can tune in here with the Non-Americans and watch them gravvel.

if ur not gonna watch it proves that u arent a tennis fan, u r merely a fan of 2 players...monica and anna arent playing and it pisses me off, but i love this game and thats the reason im still going to watch it and enjoy it. if SOME of you williams fans are going to be that way then fine, but it is sending a message to everyone here that you arent fans of this game, and its a shame that you guys are being that way...
