ATP TV coverage better than WTA ?

It is unfair to have the mens tennis match coverage better than WTA Acapulco for example and also the US open series where ATP got the coverage from the first round while womens match won't be broadcast till QF
most of guys matches are boring anyway why not broadcast girls also?

mens matches generally score more viewers.
it sucks, but it makes sense.

holland • mirkovic • moore • rogowska • wejnert
clijsters • hantuchova • jankovic • sharapova • venus

Re: ATP TV coverage better than WTA ?

Men's tennis is a lot more popular, mostly because they play better tennis.

Maria Sharapova
Sabine Lisicki - Victoria Azarenka - Nastya Pavyuchenkova
Yanina Wickmayer - Laura Robson - Aga Radwanska - KiKi Mladenovic - Angelique Kerber
Simona Halep - Heather Watson - Julia Goerges - Kimiko Date Krumm - Lucie Safarova - Nadia Petrova

This. WTA has to earn the respect, not just expect equal treatment with an inferior standard of tennis.
