Next year. And the year after. And the year after.

It's always getting better.

Re: When will women's tennis get better?

Maybe if tomorrow Elena defeats Caroline it may get a bit better

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: When will women's tennis get better?

Is it only me ... or I think that this year is Quite an Improvement already.

The top players are playing consistently...

Theyre just not playing more.

Top players winning yeah... in a horrible way just look at Clijsters' US Open victory

Re: When will women's tennis get better?

If Justine's form improves, if Kim becomes more consistent, if Dementieva or some of the other Russians get it back together again, and if Stosur becomes more consistent, and of course if the up and comers step up. I dont think at her age Serena will get any better than she is at this point already, Venus is already past her prime, and Maria despite her youth is pretty much finished as far as being at the very top or even winning a slam most likely. So it is basically up to Clijsters, Henin, Wozniacki, Azarenka, Dementieva, Kuznetsova, Stosur, to improve from what they were this year, and for Serena to try to hold onto her form of this year.

Re: When will women's tennis get better?

i don't hold out much hope. i hadn't watched a ball struck at tokyo until last night when i sat through 2 whole sets of that shit that was caro vs vika, didn't even bother to watch the 3rd set as it was so bad.

those are supposed to be the 2 next best things in womens tennis, if thats whats to come then no thanks.

Re: When will women's tennis get better?

I think tennis in general will improve when the WTA improves. I mean, ITF tennis is doing just fine. Challengers, Slams, and Fed cup ties do just fine. Mistakes were made when the WTA tried to mandate who plays when. The best players resisted it, and still play when they want, or even less. The rankings become skewed due to less play and in the case of Serena even a down right boycott. When a war breaks out between the players and the governing body, tennis can not win.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.
