Instead of moaning about Fed Cup, why dosen't SA sort out European TV Contract

I am sorry, what a thing to be moaning about Fed Cup! There are so many fans who have been left in the dark with regards to this high paid contract the WTA did.

It is a SHAME the WTA did not think our US when announcing this contract.

We want an answer about next year, and we do not mean by the 31st December!

What is more important to the WTA? Fans or money?

I think the answer to the question lies in the European TV rights.

Don't think you it is bad though, that they announce it. Simon Reed said the viewing ratings for Radwanska went through the roof.

What have you done today to make money for the WTA? Seriously, posting on a message forum and claiming you're a fan is useless. Fans don't generate much money. Sponsors do. Sponsors appear because they want to reach fans.

Fact. However, sponsors buy in because of the number of fans. No fans, no sponsors.

If SA is the WTA CEO she already denided ES a contract for next year

Excuse me, but I pay for my Eurosport subscription, I attend Eastbourne and Wimbledon most years. I also pay for the Eurosport Player and Bet365 Video access!
