OMG the crowd in LA!

So little people there for Chanda vs Amelie.
I wonder why they keep the tour championships in LA. Attendence was already bad last year and back then Venus and Serena were there. I guess it won't be better this year.
Anybody knows why the WTA keeps it in LA?

JUSTINE H-H: 39 WTA-titles and counting...!


Good luck to K-lina Sprem, Venus, Tati Golovin, Daniela, and Lena D

I think they should move it to another state or city.
Everybody in Los Angeles is just too spoiled when
it comes to entertainment/sport event options!!

I think LA is saturated with tennis events to start with...and then they do such a shitty job publicising this event...it's out of control. I mean, this is really a huge event...and they call it the Bank of America Championships presented by Porsche. Everyone is like, "HUH?! What the F*ck is THAT?!" But good news for the Chanda/Amelie fans who get to see them up close and personal!!!

I don't know what was the big suprise especially with even more top players out. Too bad, I guess the promotion department for the WTA still sucks.

What city would best fit the YEC other than L.A?

Chicago? Seattle? Boston? Tampa?

Agree Instant - if they held them in Melbourne or London (Royal Albert Hall) they would get sellout crowds for sure.

Australia?

That would be good too. The USA is just too damn
big, and everyone who's a tennishead is just
so spread apart. People can't just go and see the
match- hotel reservations, airline reservations etc..
have to be made.


London? Are you sure- the BBC website and news gives
me the impression that women's tennis isn't that popular
in England.

Why not give it one year to Belgium and RUSSIA?

Well what about Canada...in the #1 city in the world perhaps, Vancouver? I think Vancouver is not only holds the largest active tennis community in Canada, but Vancouver hosts many world class events, possible G.M Place which is a georgous arena, or another venue that could be built in world #1 vancouver.

the fact is that tennis journalists and publicists have done a great job in publicizing the sport but Americans in general are not interested in men or women's tennis. Why?? because, the emphasis has been placed on personalities instead of the game. When the personalities are missing such as the williams sisters, or kournikova..the people azre not interested. The Atp may yet commit the same mistake with Roddick..the onlyt thing is that outside of the United States, he is fairly unpopular or not well known.
