The past five finals at the US Open have sucked.
2000 Safin vs Sampras 6-4 6-3 6-3
2001 Hewitt vs Sampras 7-6 6-1 6-1
2002 Sampras vs Agassi 6-3 6-4 5-7 6-4
2003 Roddick vs Ferrero 6-3 7-6 6-3
2004 Federer vs Hewitt 6-0 7-6 6-0
Despite the score the sampras vs agassi match was a total geezer fest with agassi letting shots go which he ran down against hewitt the previous day. I know for the years sampras reached the final he definetly needed a day rest.
Even this year with both finalist winning the semis in straight sets. They at least need the extra day to plan or talk with they're coach about strategy.
Also that award ceremony was terrible. I keep thinking they would get a bit more organized than the previous year. The check had a speech by the sponsor while awarding the trophy was dick enberg saying "Here it is". I know we don't watch for award ceremonies. But if your going to do it, at least do it right.
