Re: Why Auckland Pay Hantu & Myskina But Refuse To Pay For Bartoli ???

It's a slap of reality for Bartoli.
Hantuchova and Myskina have been in the top 20 for years and at one time were top 5 players.
Bartoli has been in the top 20 for weeks and the only reason she's even there is because of the points she hasn't had to defend at Auckland for 10 months.

How about showing Auckland you can actually be in the top 20 without our tournament before requesting things you really don't deserve.
IMO, Bartoli needs Auckland more than Auckland needs her.

sorry pierce0415 but you should know that Myskina and Hantuchova are marquee players on some level and Marion Bartoli just isn't.

Myskina = Former Slam Champ, Former number 2
Hantuchova = Former top 5, 3 times in a slam quater
Bartoli = Top 20, tier 3 champ, never been inside top 15

hopefully that answers your question

They might well have offered Marion some sort of deal and she could want more.

If they pay by the kilo
well that makes sense
cause the other's butts are skinny
but Marion's is immense

They probably haven't finished reading the extra pages stapled to Marion's entry form under the "extra dietary requirements" section

they probably think that she is the defending champ and she would want to defend the title and points, and god know she she need this tournament more then it needs her, with the type of tennis she brings to the bigger events. so the would us the money to get better players insted of wasting it on Bartoli, who still has to prove herself.

Re: Why Auckland Pay Hantu & Myskina But Refuse To Pay For Bartoli ???

Apart from true hardcore tennis fans, nobody knows who the hell Marion Bartoli is. Nobody's going to pay money specifically to see her. They're going to come simply because it's the only tennis tournament in New Zealand save for a couple of 10K's. Amy Frazier competed in a nearly full stadium for her early round night match when she was the #1 seed here two years ago. Amy fuckin' Frazier...

People on the other hand would pay money specifically to see Hantuchova or Myskina. They're both former top five players and have won Grand Slams before (albeit Daniela's were in mixed, but still.)

Marion needs to start producing big results outside of the Tier III's and IV's in order to warrant appearance fees. An appearance fee implies that their appearance will generate profit. That wouldn't happen with Marion, defending champion or not.

Because they're better than her, have been #2 for Myskina (+1 Slam) and #5 for Hantuchova. And they were once considered the most talented newcomers, so they got a lot of hype.
I thought the answer was obvious...
