Was it just me or...

were the stands pretty empty when VENUS was playing? I didn't see any Williams fans writing this this week after they bashed the rest of the tour last week...

Visit MONICA!

I am a sinner too!

Just a guess, but it could be because of the rain.

ESPN showed the stadium and it was raining pretty bad for a good hour or more. I don't think many people returned. It didn't look like it was going to let up at all! ESPN also cut off the match at 5:00! No bonus coverage today!

For as much as they are known by casual fans, they rarely fill up the stadiums. When Hingis used to play, her early matches were always packed, even if her name recognition among US fans wasn't as high as Venus' or Serena's.

As long as Venus and Serena are ACTIVE on the tour I am fine with seats and people.

It's good that the unpopularity of your favorites don't affect you.

So you were at all of Martina's matches in the States. I've been to a lot of her matches where the stands were empty also and I have been to a lot of Venus and Serena matches where the stands were full.
