Year End Bust

Maybe it’s just me but doesn’t the conclusion to the 2005 tennis season feel like a complete bust.

The WTA Championships are a lame duck tank job of an event. The stands are empty, there’s no media buzz and TV coverage is uneven. Without the Williams sisters there’s no real drama on court. Seeing Lindsay wrap up No. 1 was nice if not awkward because she did it by losing, but it leaves the event with no real “story” per se, except perhaps that it is indeed lifeless.
