Eastbourne: Why very few men in attendance?

Did you notice the crowd at Eastbourne. Do any heterosexual men attend tennis tournaments these days? Not that many did in the past.

They lost a boatload of money this year without a main sponsor.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

If you are happy with 75% of the crowd being old female geriatrics and the rest made of up of lesbians on vacation, and old coffin dodgers, so be it.

Just goes to show how WTA tennis does not attract a wider audience.

Lately the all of the WTA's campaigns have been TERRIBLE. I mean, "Get in touch with your feminine side?" What the hell was that all about? How is that suppose to attract the hockey/football crowd?

High prices Jewelry, designer pink dresses, and screeching are not good ways of attracting a heterosexual, male audience.

You can't expect anything better when it‘s marketing campaign is run by gays and lesbians.

Because women's tennis isn't entertaining for most men.
