Can't see whats wrong here. Who is lining up to see women's matches?

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

does anyone seriously cares about ATP those days ?
Im sure they'd benefit more if they would cover WTA, but well, their toys-their business...

I'm alaways right, even when Im wrong...

Brings into question equal pay, doesn't it?

I mean, I know being nice dictates there should be equal pay but being fair and objective I think dictates there shouldn't be.

People will not like me for this comment but even as a fan of women's tennis over men's, I just can't understand how equal pay is justified.

Re: Miami coverage: ATP: 11 Matches vs. WTA: 4 Matches! DISCUSS!!!

If you are a combined Premier Mandatory event with 128 player draws and millions in prize money you should provide full court coverage for three courts minimum, more likely five and from DAY ONE. That´s not even about ATP/WTA, it´s just embarrassing for tennis as a whole. These are the biggest events after the Slams/YEC and the coverage is abysmal. You have Challenger and MM events that have more streamed/televised live hours than IW or Miami.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Re: Miami coverage: ATP: 11 Matches vs. WTA: 4 Matches! DISCUSS!!!

if they cover 4 match in the bottom half it will be slim pickings ... Maria, Ana, JJ v Sveta and what else

I guess they must decide between Kirilenko and Errani

People will not like me for this comment but even as a fan of women's tennis over men's, I just can't understand how equal pay is justified.

The women actually get paid more in this event than the men, according to the tournament website. I've not looked into this in too much detail and I don't really care any way.

However, the point that I am interested in is the seemingly worsening international coverage of this event. The problem isn't the split between men and women's matches it's that so few of either are being shown. For an event of this calibre it's just not acceptable. The powers that be may or may not be justified in splitting coverage so lopsidedly when the pickings are slim - where are the proofs either way. Hard to prove that as many people wouldn't watch 11 women's matches if you don't actually show them. So no it doesn't bring equal pay into question, and that's not even the issue.

It's been like this since I remember. IW/Miami always gets this kind of coverage. What's the point of discussing it over and over again?

Swiss champs.

I suppose not showing Petra (again) is the only anomaly
