YEC needs out of Doha

The seats are emptier than last year.
Get back to MSG already. this is so sad for the last event of the year and no one is even there watching.

Re: YEC needs out of Doha

I do think it should be rotatory; held in a different place every year; but if you want a place forever, may it be Spain! YEC in Madrid had great audiences and prices

So far the only dud match was Vika/JJ ...so I think the tennis has been competitive and good overall.

Re: YEC needs out of Doha

Yes, the only consideration for a tournament should be if the seats are full in the first 3 - 5 years. If that was the case, there would be very few tournaments

Re: YEC needs out of Doha

I totally agree. Its quite honestly ridiculous being held in Doha. I can imagine that some 10k matches have had more spectators than we have seen this week. Don't mind where it should go to as long as it brings in big crowds of tennis fans and is given justice as a tournament for the best players in the world.

Re: YEC needs out of Doha

Seriously they pay well.
The WTA prefers bigger paychecks than bigger crowds even if they are playing in misogynistic countries. Its good business policy and good for the players who get a share of the increased prize money.

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

Re: YEC needs out of Doha

So in the old days the women could not play according to people on this board but they always had a full house in Japan, Chicago. Eastbourne or at MSG in New York. How is that possible. When Chris Evert retired in 1989 she played lots of exhibition matches against Martina Navratilova, some of them before 16000 spectators!!
