I know your point just showing that scores can be crazy and seem uncompetitive at any round.
Yes, a 6-2,6-1 match can be full of multi-deuce games, etc. When examining a draw sheet, I needed something objective rather than subjective, and cannot be there to watch all the matches.

An important point is that a semifinal could be uncompetitive while the quarterfinals that preceded it were competitive. So, the uncompetitive semifinal would not be a good argument for getting rid of earlier rounds that were competitive.

I also care NOTHING about 12 and under nationals.
