What is the most boring WTA tournament?

I think it's Memphis

The field is always the same. Petrova and her Indoor specialists friends ranked 50-150.
Random location and surface with no meaning purpose as either a prestigous event in its own right or as a meaning warm-up.
Always on a week with 2 other tournaments.

Cornet // Diyas // Jankovic // Dellacqua // Pironkova // Halep // Hingis
Dulgheru // Gajdosova// Kanepi // Cetkovska // Svitolina // Niculescu // Errani

Re: What is the most boring WTA tournament?

Yeah, Memphis is pretty dull.

Although Quebec City is pretty much the same thing so I can't really hate on poor little Tennessee.
Bogota is just a hot, hot mess.

Re: What is the most boring WTA tournament?

Up until the past two years Memphis had been able to draw a big name or two to add some intrigue to it, they've just been unable to do it the past two years.

Sharapova won in 2010. Azarenka/Wozniacki final in 2009. Davenport in 2008. Venus in 2007.

The most boring for me are the clay court MMs after Wimbledon. After getting spoiled with a couple months of fantastic tennis, I can't be bothered to even pay attention to those.

Re: What is the most boring WTA tournament?

Definitely not Memphis. For an International, I don't think many other tournaments can boast Venus, Davenport, Sharapova and Azarenka as former champions. Plus it's a fast surface and it attracts a lot of players who are probably top-50 on quick courts.
