Re: Sorry But The Abysmal Crowds In Paris Justify Stacy Moving SEWTA To China
The crowds are poor for lots of reasons. The same reasons there was hardly anyone in the live thread on here, fewer posts about the matches, and generally little interest: there were few big names in the tournament; there were relatively early exits of players with a name; it is straight after a Grand Slam; there was a better line up of players in Thailand - WTA really fucked up; it's January/February and bleak weather in Northern Europe, we don't like going out unless we have to; indoors tennis is dying - people prefer outdoor events; WTA is losing popularity in comparison to ATP.
The above does not warrant moving anything to China. The WTA at the minute are thick - they should drop this event.
Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.
Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.
