Well if they're in a crisis this USO final is a great way to get out of it.

Jankovic is a fresh, personable persona and I think is a great character/game. Serena is American, obviously very talented and playing in her first USO final in 6 years.

This is a great storyline and a really great final.

I'm really looking forward to this final and hope it is really entertaining.

Don't wait until Serena and Jelena reach the final to talk of crisis?? The problem has been going on for years. Alot of players are burned out! They get lonely on tour and tired mentally. Thank Gawd Venus has Serena and vice verse. It does help to have sisters playing on the tour together.

The bottom line is tennis aint all glamourous out there. The girls are making history and then leaving their jobs after making millions.

Hire more blondes to play?

Goodbye WTA and Jelena. It was nice being your fan once.

Nothing will change the fact that both of them will be the world #1 and #2 since Monday.

Re: What is required for the WTA to survive this deep crisis ?

crisis? why is wta in a crisis? just because some people don't like the current top players? just because the players are close in quality, and the surprises are possible? just because there are no new American players on the horizon? because the eastern-europe girls are dominating the game at the moment? i dont think that is a crisis.sure some changes are needed, in respect to the players, to have more time to heal and rest up, but the game is more fun this way.

theis board is going nuts with all these crisis talk!

Re: What is required for the WTA to survive this deep crisis ?

2 of the best players on tour are playing the US Open final tomorrow. I think it's a very interesting and classic dynamic. The established former champion against The world #2 trying to make her grand slam breakthrough. Where's the crisis?


If you're referring to ratings, putting an end to these God-awful, embarrassing commercials would be a start.

We need healthy players. Thank God we have a decent or potentially great final coming, not the sort of crap matches we've had in the quarters. So, for this final we could actually say that this "crisis" doesn't exist.
