Ever since they updated the site, the search option for the H2H records sucked big time. Really annoying to use it now. The suggested options for a player's name takes forever to load. :(

For H2H, it's faster with ITF website.

How?

I think Meelis meant that ITF includes matches played even in 10k qualies or juniors. These kinf of matches are not so considered, if not at all, sometimes by WTA.

Yes, this usually hapens when theyīre updating rankings. I remember some months ago ITF didnīt show entry lists for a few hours, but then it was restored.

By the way, one thing that never works fine is the searching. You write a name thats similar to another and then appears a whole different one :tape: or when you look for some retired player, the search shows nothing :help:. At least thatīs what happened to me.

And it appears that for older date the WTA actually uses the ITF database. For anything before 1978 our results section in the Blast From the past is the best place for women's results.

So true, sites and forums like this one kinda replaces the lack of archive that generally can be seen in official sites. Not just archive, but trivia and facts too. Not saying that every poster can give info a 100% accurate, because i canīt be sure of that. But TF seems to be one of the most reliable source for womenīs tennis. At least with posters that are in the know like Meelis, Tobi, TBE and Spiceboy, I trust in what they say.

Yep! It would help if people emailed the webmaster.

Nobody is sure what results were in the mens game around 1965-68, because they were a traveling road show not allowed in majors.
The people running this sport dont care enough about its history.

It's wretched to look at and a bitch to navigate. I'd call it a double fault in web design.

I also find the WTA site home page to be a little too cramped on space. It seems they've forced too much info on one page that it almost looks like a classified ads section. :tape:

BTW, thanks for the tip on the ITF site. :yeah: I'll take a look at it. Before I only use the ITF site for juniors info. I'm currently using matchstat.com for H2H and so far I'm liking it. :)
