    Nerves, boring (or lack of ) game plans made for a very uninteresting women's tournamemt.

    Most matches in the ladies tournament were not worth watching when it came to just the tennis. Some matches were digestable because of Safina coming back from match points down,( or the odd non Russian/Serbe/Florida- school player who has a few intersting shots to offer) but most of the time the tennis was boring. The ladies have one strategy and when they have an off day ( like Kustnestova did against Safina) they have no plan B, so they just try to get their game back by hitting as hard as they can, resulting in some many breaks of serve and unforeced errors, that spectators hardly borther to get involved. The final was also hardly worth watching and unless the ladies find more skills than just hard hitting, I fear the public will disappear. Not even the (ridiculous) plans of the WTA to create tennis babes will be able to safe the game, if the tennis itself doesn't get any more interesting.Please find/breed/create/encourage some interesting players,like Martina, Hanna, Justine, the other Martina and Jana!
