WTAworld Knows BEST!!

woman just called trying to sell me tickets to the L.A. tournament. I told her since Serena was out, I am not interested.

Salesperson: Serena is not out. As of this morning she was in. We know more than some messageboard

Spokenword: Oh yeah, wanna bet? Serena is out of L.A. I read it on WTAworld.

Hurriedly, Ms. Salesperson went to site and said she would let me know for sure on Monday.

Re: WTAworld Knows BEST!!

Sales must be down.

I wouldn't expect a call back.

Re: WTAworld Knows BEST!!

Hope I did not get WTAWorld in trouble.

How did WTAWorld find out about Serena, and how come the folks selling tix don't know?

Salesperson is trying to talk me into buying tix for John McEnroe v Jim Courier "oldtimers" match on Monday nite. But for $30, "you cannot be serious."

Re: WTAworld Knows BEST!!

Sorry, I thought it was common knowledge about Serena.

Re: WTAworld Knows BEST!!

In reality, she already knew about WTAWorld, cos she went to the site immediately. What she did not know was Serena had withdrawn...or maybe she did know and was trying to get my little $20 (per match) anyway.

Re: WTAworld Knows BEST!!

You could have just pointed to other news agency sites.
Heck ask the lady to google Serena Williams and look at news and she'll be embarrassed right on the phone

But I don't see what's wrong with saying WTAWorld? It's not like it's breaking news or whatever.

don't worry about it....they got on the site because entry lists were being posted here *BEFORE* the tournaments were posting the information.

True dat. I did send her two wtatour.com, but of course they are always a day late and a dollar short.
