New look, following in the ATP direction it looks like.

Main page is currently being redone, as is the whole site, but if you go to any of the subsequent page links, you can click around and see it now while it's being updated
ex. http://www.wtatennis.com/news , http://www.wtatennis.com/rankings

New layout and look using the Strong is Beautiful campaign, rankings breakdown etc.

Much better. Finally there is an option to see who was no.1 on a particular date. A stat site similar to ATP's would be great.

I got Camila Giorgi:lol: Teething troubles I guess.

The new site looks good but tbh I don't really care much about that, but more about how easy it is to find the info I'm looking for. As some posters already suggested, an extended stats section would be great.

i got Ana instead :hysteric:

but I quite like the new layout - it's much more streamline and more dynamic on the navigation where you can see current no.1 player (and top 5)
the bright pink top bar is kind of killing my eyes but i like they're using the 'Strong is Beautiful' campaign for the background - hopefully they'll rotate it throughout the year with other players or show atmospheric photos from tournaments each month :shrug:

anyway glad they FINALLY updated :cheer:

oh wait - i just went on some other pages and the background does change :oh:
i really like the h2h page - when you enter a players name the profile pic changes with the ranking. its really cool

and its really cool to see indepth data on player stats - points won on serve/percentages etc

Its not mixed, they just broke it up tournaments by category and sorted by date.
Not saying this is the best, but its kinda interesting view and they should keep it.
What that page definitely needs is a rolling 52 weeks view.

I mean surely the pages and the way it's set up is better, but still some of the colors and accents with each other does not match and looks tacky.

Also, think it would have been cooler to have the feature of the player on the homepage in the background to constantly change after refreshing it. Not just Li Na every time, and Serena for rankings, Vika for Players, etc.

It's a nice effort but it does look cheap. It's a bit "in your face".
They also need to remove Clijsters from the homepage. She's retired.

They should've copied the ATP and just put a purpleish background.

At the same time on WTA web site we can find nothing about tennis history, nothing about statistics , records etc . I can't press one link and find out who won the most number of RG trophies, who had the longest winning streak , a least of youngest GS champions, a list of CGS winners etc ...

Not very impressed with the new site so far... Bugs are one thing, missing content and design oversights are another.

The historical rankings are a welcome (and long overdue) addition, though.

No "number of tournaments" sorting in rankings? :facepalm:

Well for the most number of tournaments just go to Julia Cohen :oh:

WTA are saying in a standard response to any complaints that the majority of feedback has been positive. If you think something is missing or there is a bug you need to do more than moan on here - you must email them - they have said they intend on making no more changes to the structure etc... of the website unless they get a large number of negative feedback on a particular point.

WTF is wrong with that scoreboard? I canīt watch matchstats for longer than five seconds before it jumps back to the CC match. Maybe the WTA could invest just a little money into their infrastructure. Website was probably updated by some player ranked 500, who had a computer class in school and wants to earn some 3rd world minimum wage on the side. Even worse job than their make-up artists.

Yes, it is . But in the player page it is separated http://www.wtatennis.com/players/player/332

Itīs only on H2H page. On players profile page itīs shows WTA and ITF titles separately.

http://www.wtatennis.com/players/player/332

Anyway, itīs hard to take these stats seriously since they started to count WTA125īs as proper WTA titles.

Why are they so slow in updating the completed scores section today?

I know you can go to the live scores section & see completed matches but I liked the old way of all results from all tournaments on one page and it was updated fairly quickly too.

This and this. The new website seems to be a fair bit more jumping around to load several individual pages/documents. Less information with less efficiency...

The whole "Score and Stats" thing is such a mess.

The need to do something about the Twitter thing as I only see rants from Navratilova, no sense from Evert and useless stuff from Melanie South and Sarah Borwell (WHO?).

Watson vs Cirstea is still on the homepage at 0-0. The match ended a day ago!

Vesnina's profile say she won 2 Titles during her career.
Prize money doesn't include doubles.

I think the doubles prize money is no longer counted, actually. It's just a shame they don't indicate it... The wins/losses are not shown for doubles either.

EDIT: Well, it seems they have finally fixed it.

The H2H page is awful. The matches aren't chronologically ordered, the round in which the matches were played is not shown and the ranking of the players at that time is not shown.

When you click on the "Score and Stats" :

On the left you have Sydney and Hobart's qualies draw + OOP but nothing on Brisbane, Shenzhen or Auckland.
On the right you have 2R results from the qualies in Auckland.

What a mess.
