Larry Scott (WTA Ceo) on Henin - "We Won't Lose sleep over it".

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/15/sp...is&oref=slogin

Henin was not, by design, a tour runway model, no Williams sister or Maria Sharapova on the marketing side. For that reason, Scott stepped off a plane Wednesday from Rome to say, of Henin’s stunning exit as it relates to the sport a large, “We won’t lose any sleep over it.”

Cold as that sounded, Scott was quick to add that Henin was a joy to behold for the true tennis fan everywhere from the day she appeared until she telephoned Scott on Tuesday to tell him she was out.
He wasn’t shocked after she had confided to him late last year that “she didn’t realize until she put the racket down and went on holiday just how much the year had affected and changed her as a person".

what a jackass, he needs to be fired for him to say that about the woman who was just #1 before she retired.
He also has some cocky attitude,i would love to see him play tennis against some of the top 10 and they whoop his ass

Who can fire him? How does WTA Tour management/ownership work?

i guess the next innovation will be mandatory tenniswear: bikinis only
after all women's tennis is only about glamor , skills be damned
no wonder people think women's tennis is a joke

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Henin is the last person that the wta can afford to lose from a tennis perspecive. Love her or hate her, her game was one of the prettiest on the tour ina time where variety is almost dead.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think these are Larry's "equals" or those he works alongside http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/3...rdofdirectors/

Maybe they can do something I really don't know.

He's an idiot and needs to go. Sooner the better.

What an idiot. Love the way he tried to backtrack, too. Oh, well. He'll love the next few years, being dragged around on Sharapova's short leash, caving in to her every whiny whim.
