Re: Why did they play in Madrid?

It's because they don't have spanish woman playing, unlike men.
It's disgusting to see all the matches are in prime time (after 18:00) yet tens of people are there.

Re: Why did they play in Madrid?

I don't think women's tennis is that big in Spain. It would help if they actually had a decent women's player at least.

Sharapova / Bartoli / Azarenka / Rezaï
Cornet / Karatantcheva / Kirilenko
Safina / Dulko / Görges / Shvedova
Fedak / Czink / Harkleroad / Gallovits
Kleybanova / A.Bondarenko / Watson

There's no atmosphere at all They need to bring it back to Madison Square Garden.

Whenever I think of the audience at YEC when it was in LA I'm starting to laugh.

Agreed. It needs to be in a city with absolutely nothing else to do. That's why the ATP's Masters Series in Cincy is always so crowded!

It wasn't this empty last year, and we all know why: Martina Hingis.

Re: Why did they play in Madrid?

There's a good crowd it's just the stupid VIP seats that are deserted...Big Companies pay lots of money for those vip seats but then their people just show up once in a while...The rest of the stadium is full. Anyway why don't you play this event where's there's a national interest. new stadium in Belgrade Moscow Brussels MSG or even in Paris would be always full including the stupid vip seats. The match a great that's what matters.
