Upward Trend?

Is women's tennis now going in an upward trend? Thanks for any responses

Re: Upward Trend?

What kind of upward trend?
Popularity?
I actually think women's tennis was more popular during the late 90s early 00s - the Hingis, Kournikova, Williams Sisters, Davenport years.
Oh and I'm only speaking about the United States, it's probably grown in popularity elsewhere in the world.

upward as in quality matches? again i think we have to go into the late 90's early 00's for that as well. so. in response to you NO.. lol

the last two matches involving Venus have been quality but the US open as a whole was a let down....

I was going to ask the same thing, and based on what exactly? Picking it up from bad times?

I think womenís tennis is going on an upward trend. For example, Kournikova did good things for popularity and quality of European/Russian players.

I think itís been a good US Open as usual, so many new faces on show, now experience has come to #1 seed versus #4 seed in the end.

Re: Upward Trend?

Tje draw was the let down in this years open. The top draw was a slam draw, the other a tier 2 draw.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Thank you for saying it so eloquently. It's true.
