Charleston a Joke..

Can you believe that we have one of the years biggest Tier 1 Titles and Nicole (who i think is great) is the no.1 seed at 8th in the world.. Here is a tier 1 where there is only 2 women (Venus & Serena) who have won a grandslam or played in a final where as there 6 former GS champs who have pulled out..
This has to stop, all the pullouts make womens tennis look pathetic when compared to the mens..

Players Missing
Henin (5slams), Sharapova(2slams), Kuznetsova(1 Slam), Mauresmo(2 Slams), Clijsters(1 Slam), Hingis(5 Slams), Petrova, Dementieva, Hantchuchova, Chakvetadze,

Venus Williams
Sammy Stosur
Ana Ivanovic
Kimmy Clijsters
Martina Hingis
Jarmila Groth
Sharapova Dokic Wozniacki Delaqua Molik Kirilenko Dementieva Na Dani Kvitova

Re: Charleston a Joke..

It's awful, no way would you see this scenario at an ATP Masters event, so I don't know why it's the case for a women's tier I

What's wrong with Hingis anyway?

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: Charleston a Joke..

I guess I read she had a hip problem?

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Serena.[21]

Although to be perfectly fair, the only players ranked above Nikki who aren't ACTUALLY injured are Kim and Nadia

Re: Charleston a Joke..

Too many tier one tournaments. What is it IW, Miami, Charleston in 2 months? Players are either injured, or tired.

Re: Charleston a Joke..

the men have to play the same two masters both of which are mandatory while the women only have Miami as mandatory then the men have Monte Carlo with the break for Fed Cup this year but if it wasn't there it would be the same....it's about the same if you ask me....I dunno why all the withdrawals.....I hope they are all being "fined"...not like it hurts their pockets but you know principle is principle....they fined the sisters last year so all these people better has be getting the same treatment

poor WTA...they obviously haven't kept there prommises to the tourniie because of injuries..charlesdon has a total of 0 top 5 players...this means a serious payout from the WTA lol at least this gives tati a great draw and chance to follow up from her great tournie at AI she ownes Schnyder!

Re: Charleston a Joke..

It will be a good tournament for all the young guns to prove that they wont choke with opportunities like these present themselves, also it will be a good tournament for them to get a taste of Williams Prowess. All I hope is that Venus finds her form, and that ALL injuries to ALL the ladies STOP ASAP.

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

Re: Charleston a Joke..

And this, boys and girls, is the reason why we need to have mandatory tournaments.

Re: Charleston a Joke..

yeah... these repetitions are getting on my nerves..... all draws look the same no matter if the players are better/worse ranked.
