With no Serena, no Hingis, no Capriati, no Kounikova, all well-known and popular in Australia, it's not surprising. Amelie, Lindsay and even Juju don't have the same profile. Of the players who've turned up, only Kim and Venus have a profile in Australia to match Lleyton, Agassi, Philipoussis, and many of the other male players. Oh, and Navratilova in her doubles matches.
Anyway, it's a sad fact of life that the Australian media, and perhaps the public as well, tend to think of women's tennis as largely a side show. The scheduling shows that influence. It is not entirely sexism when you consider the success of the Australian men compared to the Australian women in recent years.
