Seems WTA is going for looks rather than substance.

The activity section when trying to check results is a hot mess.

You also can't search the rankings by country anymore.

Re: Does anyone else think the new WTA site is crap..you can't.

OP is spot-on. The new interface is indeed rubbish.

Now I have to click more times and hop around extra and be forced to read something I didnt' ask, just to come to the singles ranking list (no more mouseover driven dropdown menu access like the old interface)

And as others have already indicated, multiple columns have disappeared (like the ranking of previous week and nr. of tournaments) and country sorting/filtering is no longer possible.

Basically the redesign is mostly cosmetic - with flashy colors and backgrounds. But content and user-friendliness wise, it's a step backwards. On the other hand this is good news for private tennis sites, as they'll get more traffic.

Re: Does anyone else think the new WTA site is crap..you can't.

I saw that but it's still not the same. There's no comparison to previous rankings and being on a PDF there's no hyperlinks or further navigations. And no DOB either. And you can't see they unranked players that have WTA points like you used to. And I don't want a 28 page PDF when I just want to look at the top ranked players in just one country.

I am not suited to Forum life.

The results page says 'there is too much data'.
Bad for trying to do research on players

Re: Does anyone else think the new WTA site is crap..you can't.

I was trying to find a nice list of the 2013 tournaments, but that was enough to make me nearly destroy my computer monitor. Can't they at least put a pdf file of the calendar up?

The new H2H makes my computer freeze up for some reason...

all new websites seem to assume users have big monitors and screen resolutions these days, not the 1024 x 768 any more. mainly because the designers do! so those still on 1024 x 768 are scrolling up and down like crazy to see everything.
