couldn't care less what journalists think.
Does it feel a bit boring TO ME because Haas was knocked out in 1st Round? Yes. But saying it is boring in general is nonsense.
I've enjoyed it so far, Kohli beating Isner was a treat to my eyes, great run by Gasquet and Berdych. Sweet cruising mode for Wawrinka.
Lotsa great matchups to follow, at least in my eyes.
But I can see you are finally getting cracked up by Nadal's time of the courts, saying the tour is boring wthout him.
I warned you multiple times not to insult players who can't stay healthy(last time I remember DelPo in his own thread)
There's no harder thing in tennis than not watching your fave player play.
grandslam tennis is a show of top guns and nadal is one of the trump cards of ITF........get me back the conditions of 90s and i will start enjoying different styles again watching lesser ranked giving nightmares to the top guns and things will start to get more puzzling........
when i know that nobody outside the regular 2 or 3 is ultimately going to win or at least get to the final, my interest lies with those top few players........now if one of them is sidelined, the tournament is half interesting all of a sudden because the focus is on the top players........that is not just my feeling, most people feel the same way........you can't blame me for that........
i have seen on other forums, majority of fed fans miss rafa........you speak of haas but to me you come across as more of a fed fan than haas fan........and apart from that you wouldn't have many expectations over haas, so his presence or absence doesn't make as much difference to you as you think........
