Empty stands on WTA - it's sad

It's sad to see empty stands in Marbella but that's reality of small events
Nobody watching QF's Right now Svetlana Kuznetsova is playing, former RG champ.She deserves more!
Bad image for tennis & WTA

Kuala Lumpur,Barcelona, Bastad... are also REAL disaster.


What's the point of that events if they don't have crowd?

Look Charleston and you will see solid crowd, obviously that organizers there made better job.

Who to blame?
organizers , bad promotion of event, expensive tickets, players, tennis fans?

Re: Empty stands on WTA - it's sad

Who wants to look at today's womens tennis when a boring player such as Wozniacki is number 1...don't have anything against her,she collected points and is number 1,but she is,like most of the others(don't include WS,Sharapova and few others who atract the public) boring for spectators!

Charleston is one of those events like San Diego, Eastbourne, Birmingham, Sydney etc. that will be full - because they are in locations where people want to see women's tennis.

I just hate these empty stadiums in places like Marbella.

Re: Empty stands on WTA - it's sad

Marbella is actually packed in the shades

Nobody will stay under the scorching sun in southern Spain in the middle of the day if they can stay under these tents. I'm not saying the event is a great success but saying that the stadium is empty is just a lie.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

People in Spain are broke and tickets are expensive. Hard times.

It wasn't like that in 2009, and you can see:


it's R2 match and there is more crowd on stand in one match than all days together this year in Marbella.


Empty stand are doing big demage

Organisers must get fired because this year list of players is also good for MM event

Re: Empty stands on WTA - it's sad

Do you realize that people could faint because of the heat??
Heck I'm 1.000 kms northern and we're about 30º in early April and weekend is expected to be hotter
Bad schedule, game should have started minimum at 5-6 pm

Re: Empty stands on WTA - it's sad

I would feel uninsipired and somewhat embarrased if I were a player.

The point of sport is to entertain.. and obviously the players aren't doing that to a crowd of empty seats.
