That's all I can say....it lacks excitement without Nadal.
I had/am having fun.
It's an amazing feeling knowing that Nadal is out. Feels so good!
Why? Because Rogi has a better chance Of winning?
Not boring at all. Loved the Murray/Ferrer match, great to see Tsonga go deep, four very athletic women in the ladies' semis, plenty of good tennis.
Because Nadal is guaranteed to lose over 1000 points and stay at 11 for a while.
Much more exciting without him. Murray vs Tsonga semi will be blockbuster match, perhaps match of the tournament. if Nadal was here, it would be boring.
Murray is the most boring player I've ever seen...no charisma whatsoever...no redeeming qualities...a complete bore to watch.
I thought the Tsonga-Kohlschreiber QF was more exciting and fun to watch than any Nadal match I have ever seen.
I liked the Murray/Ferrer match....if Ferrer had won.
Tsonga and Kohlschreiber was a good match....
No, because Nadal is a bore to watch.
Why? Tsonga/Murray should be good... It will be a real damn shame if Murray loses though. Tsonga will lay down and die against Federer/Djokovic.
Federer will win Wimby unless Djoker takes him out. I sincerely only think Murray can beat Djokovic in the final. Let's face it, Djokovic is good, but not THAT good on grass.
He had extreme confidence against Rafa and that's the only reason he won. I still think Federer, Rafa, and Murray are better than him on grass.
Murray chokes against Fed and/or Djokovic...and Nadal....he is a guy who is in a tier below the top 3 guys.
The Brits (and everyone everywhere else around the world) love Federer. So a Federer-Murray final will have an amazing atmosphere. There will be a lot of cheering for both players.
well one of the top 3 going out is going to be a bit of loss (no offence to Murray, but he has gone out early in slams more than the other 3)
Pretty boring for me too. Although I have enjoyed watching the WTA. The Quarters (ATP) were a bit of a dud for me.
It has been only boring for *******s.
Butt - he is exciting to watch...
You think Murray is exciting to watch? Watching the grass grow is more exciting.
Yes, I do find Murray exciting to watch. But he's boring to listen to because he has such a boring voice.
The Rosol match was the match of the year. Match de dingo
Seriously, though, we still have the top 5 players in the final four, so you cannot call it bad. The semi-final lineup looks good. Most likely the final will be Joker vs Tsonga and that should be great.
I'd say it's infinitely better.
He seems that way at times but he can play very good and be a factor and is playing very good right now.
Good thing you edited before someone caught you and your reading comprehensions skills.
Okay there Mr reading comprehension professor.
Nope, I don't think Tsonga will beat Murray in the SF.
Nadal sucks any excitement out of a tournament with his boring game. It's much better without him.
On the contrary, it's a lot more exciting with Nadal out, as it opens up one of the spots in the finals. Plus, Djokodal finals were starting to get boring.
Can't lie, it's been more boring for me bc there's less tennis that im watching.
Actually, there hasn't been much discussion/excitement regarding this Wimbledon this year at my tennis club. In the past, we organized parties for weekend matches, but this year I didn't see anything posted. There were sign-up sheets at the beginning of the tournament, but were taken down due to lack of participants.
Rosol/Nadal was a nice match to watch. Tsonga vs Kohl, Murray vs Ferrer, Federer vs the angry russian...
everything is better without a buttpicker.
Yeah,me too. I've been less interested in Wimby this year no doubt. When the winner is pre-determined already,what's the point of watching it?
Never understood why some people actually enjoy watching Nadal's matches.
You've obviously not watched the French Open for a long time, except for 2009.
Rolaids is dominating everywhere,not just one tournament. It's not even remotely the same thing at all.
At least I can say this with some certainty, never heard of the Fed fan base saying that WO was boring for them since Roger got out in the QF.
All the commentators on both ESPN and Tennis Channel have been saying that this has been one of the best Wimbledons in recent memory. I've got to attribute that to Nadal losing early, and of course, the Nadal-Rosol match is one of the reasons they've been saying that this has been one of the most extraordinary Wimbledons in a long time.
The post was talking about Murray and then you went on ranting about Nadal not being a top player, etc...
I was going to call you on that one, but when I clicked on the "Quote" button, you had already changed it. Fast reflexes.
No,but some of them have said they will stop watching tennis when he retires. That's worse than skipping one pre-determined tournament.
Yep,I take everything the bandwagoning talking heads on either one of those channels say as the gospel. :roll: I would love to see the ratings for this tournament I know that much.
Well I've thoroughly enjoyed this year's Wimbledon so far (besides the panic attacks Roger gave me in the 3R and 4R). Rosol and Benneteau played fantastic grass-court matches (Rosol, especially. He was going to beat the guy across the net that day, no matter who it was. Unlucky that it had to be Nadal). Nadal going out allowed a player like Kohlschreiber to move through to the quarters and he played a fantastic match against Tsonga. Before that, we had Cilic and Querry going the distance in the fifth, as well as Youzhny and Istomin, both of which were high-quality matches. Now we get Djokovic/Federer (not much needs to be said here) and Murray/Tsonga (two great grass-courters) in the semis.
I can't speak for everyone but I've really enjoyed Wimbledon this year!
Yep,and if Benny hadn't choked his two set lead he would have done the same. I am also sure you would have just adored Wimby this year had Fed lost that match,huh? I mean,some lower ranked player would have been allowed to go through the draw further than he normally would have,so it would have been just great for the tournament,right?
Never understood why it bothers people so much. He's DIFFERENT. Don't know why that's so hard to understand. Nadal was something completely new and different when he came on the scene. Maybe some of you don't remember how ridiculously boring and monotone tennis had gotten during Federer's domination.
What does being the best or the most extraordinary Wimbledon have anything at all to do with ratings? Nobody knows a match is going to be great until AFTER it's happened and by then, it's too late to add to the ratings.
No way. These people loved it when Fed was winning every single tournament he entered,and had no opposition to challenge him. Nadal threw a wrench into that set-up,and they have hated his mere existence ever since.
yeah.. we all missed the moon balling..
Ratings matter a whole lot to Fed fans it seems,so why not bring them up? I can almost bet the ratings have dropped,and I woud like to know what they are.
Clarky, respectfully, I'm not a Nadal-hater. My enjoyment of the tournament may have gone down a bit if Federer had been knocked out, but in no way do I find it more enjoyable simply because Nadal was eliminated. All I'm saying is that I enjoyed the Kohlschreiber/Tsonga match.
