Should WTA Matchday previews continue?

Please let me know what you think of the "WTA Match Day" previews. Be honest (as if I need to tell this forum that ).

For a couple weeks now, I've been posting (almost) daily previews of selected matches - highest ranked matches, players defending the most ranking points, and other eye catchers. These posts have generated about 200 page views each and very few replies. I have received several "likes" (which I appreciate very much), but I am considering discontinuing the previews based on lack of interest. I enjoy researching the players and writing the previews, but it does take up a lot of my time. If they do not seem to add much value to the forum, then there's no real point in continuing them.

I'm afraid I haven't noticed the previews before but will look out for them now and will read them with interest.

Honestly, I haven't seen them until you said something.


They're good.

I've posted them in General Messages. The problem is that they get buried so quickly because so few people reply.

I read the first two. It's not a go-to for me because I already know who I want to match. That said, they were very well-written. From the board owners point of view I'd think it would be an asset and that they'd give you a front-page section and pay you a small fee.
