I was at the US Open and came home with mixed feeling. I enjoyed the woman's singles and doubles finals. The match between Lili Zhou and Xing were good to watch again if anyone has recorded the event. Lili plays in my club regularly and I think she ran out of gas after the first game. Women's doubles were impressive too as both pairs from Taiwan put up a tough fight, and most of all, both team were more balance. The rallies were longer and more entertaining compared to the mixed doubles and mens doubles. Mens singles, kind of disappointing. When PR withdrawed in the middle of first match, everyone was wondering what was going on. The organizer did not even explain what happened to him. My friends and I were all pretty upset with the organizer, hey, this is not a free event, we each paid $25 to see the tournament. At least there should be an announcement what was going on. Mens doubles was pretty boring, as it was obvious the US pairs could take the Danes easily. It is not balance, one side is much stronger than the other and there was hardly any rallies.
