I think the ideal is a mix, where familiar names are in contention, but there are also fresh faces/storylines.
You don't want all unknowns or one or two players winning everything. Mid big 3 Era in men's was great bc several household names and good rivalries. I enjoyed late 90's and early...
Wow, at the beginning of the tournament the women's side seemed loaded, but it has really thinned out. I like some fresh blood, but all four in their first ever major semifinal is too much.
Hope the US Open has more of a mix.
