How come the men's final sold out but not the women's?

I thought women's tennis was better and more popular than men's? And with the supposedly super-uber-popular Serena Williams in the final the tickets should've sold out in 2 minutes but they haven't. Humph.

not surprising, whomever attends joined tennis events knows that men's matches are usually more packed and searched for than most of the women's... that does not prove that one particular tour is more popular than the other though, only that men's tennis is probably more popular among the hardcore fans, which might not include the casual viewer...

Well, have you seen before a game or sport played by women / ladies which fill more seats than men?

Your sig picture exceeds the 200 pixel height limit.

Australian Open 2010 Final Result:-
Lost to Serena Williams 4-6, 6-3, 2-6 (Great job, girl! Now prepare for FO!)

Re: How come the men's final sold out but not the women's?

most thought Fed and/or Rafa would be in the final and brought tickets.
If I had to chose between a Fed/Nadal or Justine/Serena final, I would always want to see the JH/SW match, but that's just me

Close your eyes
Feel the ocean where passion lies
Silently the senses
Abandon all defences
