WTA website gets a much needed overhaul

New look, following in the ATP direction it looks like.

Main page is currently being redone, as is the whole site, but if you go to any of the subsequent page links, you can click around and see it now while it's being updated
ex. http://www.wtatennis.com/news , http://www.wtatennis.com/rankings

New layout and look using the Strong is Beautiful campaign, rankings breakdown etc.

Re: WTA website gets a much needed overhaul

Much better. Finally there is an option to see who was no.1 on a particular date. A stat site similar to ATP's would be great.

I got Camila Giorgi Teething troubles I guess.

The new site looks good but tbh I don't really care much about that, but more about how easy it is to find the info I'm looking for. As some posters already suggested, an extended stats section would be great.

i got Ana instead

but I quite like the new layout - it's much more streamline and more dynamic on the navigation where you can see current no.1 player (and top 5)
the bright pink top bar is kind of killing my eyes but i like they're using the 'Strong is Beautiful' campaign for the background - hopefully they'll rotate it throughout the year with other players or show atmospheric photos from tournaments each month

anyway glad they FINALLY updated

Nice, the rankings can go back as far as December 28th, 1998.

Re: WTA website gets a much needed overhaul

oh wait - i just went on some other pages and the background does change
i really like the h2h page - when you enter a players name the profile pic changes with the ranking. its really cool

and its really cool to see indepth data on player stats - points won on serve/percentages etc

Re: WTA website gets a much needed overhaul

The "Show Random Player" search function is all over the website it seems.

BUT I just clicked on Vika's profile and it worked! Same with Petra.

I'm sure they'll fix the profile page mix ups by the time it is actually up and running...I hope anyway
