Graf in Zhuhai
It was so great to see Monica Seles in Singapore for the WTA finals - and Evert, Navratilova, Sanchez-Vicario and Pierce. But Zhuhai is so much lower key, so how come Steffi Graf is there? WTA website had her playing tennis on a bridge with Caroline Garcia in one of those publicity things but is she there as one of the sponsors is one of hers too?
Here in the U.K. I've been glad to be able to watch Zhuhai on BT sport but none of their commentators are there, we are getting the Aussie coverage. The crowd looked decent today for the semis but during the week it has looked to be just a few hundred spectators. Definitely a lower key event than Singapore yet one of the most respected (and least seen around the circuit) legends, Steffi Graf is there...?? What's the story?
