Re: News confirmed: No tennis on Eurosport in 2013 outside the slams
People are unwilling to think of the WTA for what it is, a business. It's a product that generates money, and she wants to generate as much as possible. I hated the Doha YECs, but of course they're going to get them over a better location if Doha are offering a crazy amount of $$$$$$s.
I loved and miss the European indoor events, but these were in small-ish venues in countries with small markets and little potential for income, i.e. Switzerland, of course those tournaments are going to be eroded to make way for a big event in China with a lot of investors. It's a business.
