No one watching Errani vs. Vinci...a shame for the WTA? Discuss.

It's QF-time in NY and no one is watching the match between Vinci and Errani

What's the reason?

They're not big players

It's not really a big deal...

As far as I remember, there wouldn't usually be singles matches on Armstrong on Wednesday except in cases where the schedule gets backed up for rain so nobody would have tickets for Armstrong except people who decided to head on over today.

all stadiums were filled the whole week and now Louis is empty, I don't think it has something to do with the weather

It is because of the weather. All singles matches are supposed to be on Ashe on Wednesday so nobody would have bought tickets just to watch doubles and mixed quarterfinals. The crowd will be rather empty for the men's fourth round on the outside courts as well.

Re: No one watching Errani vs. Vinci...a shame for the WTA? Discuss.

Main reason: they are not big names

But also, the match has no energy to it.
It looks like a practice session, with moon balls, overuse of backhand slice by Vinci, puffy balls.

Not that Maria-Bartoli is much better, but they have name recognition and hit a little heavier balls.



Jim Courier is probably watching Errani vs. Vinci, he thinks Vinci has the best all around game in the WTA

Sharapova-Bartoli is happening at the same time. Maria's fans are rooting for her to rally. Maria's haters are rooting for her to tank. Of course, people would choose to watch that matches instead of two doubles players "battling" each other.

no, what is a shame is the way they are playing this match away: like a practice session..

Also, Errani being relatively quiet after the screamfest against Kerber, is really interesting, it gives new ammunition to the whole discussion of grunting/screaming being more of a mental than a physical thing...
