5431 ???

From AP-article:

"The announced crowd of 5,431 was just 150 more than on opening night and appeared to be a couple thousand less in cavernous Staples Center, where poor attendance was a major problem last year."

That's obviously WTA spin. It rather looked like 543.

And most people there aren't willing to watch 3 matches. At 6 pm it's empty, at 12 midnight it's emptier.
Are the matches too early ? Too late ?
No, it's just the wrong place. Even with a Williams it wouldn't be great.
The awful crowd hurts the WTA and tennis in general. They HAVE to do something.
