Re: Doha: A disgrace to WTA tour

They can't control the weather. Wimbledon had rain so much last yr. Did that make it a disgrace? I don't think so.

Re: Doha: A disgrace to WTA tour

No weather was more ridiculous than the USO that Roddick won.
Days of nothing during a major.
Wimbledon gets pretty ridiculous too. Matches last 3 days.
This is just wind.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Doha: A disgrace to WTA tour

They could have done something about the wind (build an indoor stadium instead of an open air one)....

Well, guess we will have to see whether the WTA Championships would also become a farce....

Re: Doha: A disgrace to WTA tour

Doha cannot help the weather situation........but a Tier I tournament should have a decent website.

Re: Doha: A disgrace to WTA tour

it's a disgrace based on results. but holding a tournie during winter outside is also stupid.

Re: Doha: A disgrace to WTA tour

This tournament is fine. It's always been a decent one since 2001.

I am against the WTA Champs being held here though, because it's outside.
