Why does WTA use ATP's live scoring system?

Don't they have enough resources to build their own system?

the WTA web site is run from the ATP headquaters. I am sure the official reason is 'synergy'

I use the livescore board quite a bit being in Australia and its the WTA system with ATP logos on it. It a great system as it loses points every now and then but not whole games and sets like some others it a great system they just seems to be doing mens scores aswell seems it a ATP / WTA event I supose.

It's a good system but still WTA could take it and make a copy on their servers instead of the url writing atptennis...

The only problem with the live scoring is that the stats don't show winner, UEs etc.

Why? Then new development and error corrections would have to be replicated to two servers, and two servers would have to be supported.
