Congrats! :)

Seriously, this is pathetic. Especially because the WTA has a link to that site on their results page. :o
Then they should make proper scoreboards mandatory for the tourneys, or even better, provide them with proper software.

actualy, for those that have seen the scoreboard (i have managed to see it once for about 5 minutes), i think they would agree that the scoreboard is quite good; has stats etc...

only problem is it rarely updates and mostly the website is down. :lol: :o :tape:

yep, agree with you GoDominique, the wta is looking like rubbish this week, the wtatour.com has been down heaps over the last few days and this tourny website is disfunctional. :fiery:

I haven't seen the Stras one yet as it doesn't work, but if anyone here remembers the Guangzhou scoreboard I'd have to say it's very very unlikely to be worse than that ;) :tape:

This is even worse than Rabat last week. There we KNEW there were no live scores. Here we have to guess what's going on.
:secret: there's a rumour out that it's raining atm in Strassbourg. But hey we don't know!!

In Poland it was bad, in Morocco it was absent, and in Strassbourg it's unreliable. Take your pick!

It's better than Rabat Tier4,they don't have a scoreboard.
and last year,scoreboard of Beijing Tier2 can't refresh automatically.

All the money for software and web design goes to the "appearance money" fund. :tape:

for me scoreboard was ok (stats, schedule, etc) and worked without any problem, the site is quite empty but you can find most important infos, that s enough

I ve read that tournament didn t expect so much connections (50 000) and had to repare it :lol:

the site is much better than 4-5 years ago

The worst is the Rabat's one, no live scores, bad pictures, no infos, players names written approximately and so on... :tape:

Even worse : the so called "interviews", for 6 years that the tournament exists you find all the time the same stuff, players from Morocco even if they ve lost 6/1, 6/0 said the tournament was great and the others players are all saying the same stuff : "your tournament is amazing, people are friendly" :lol: and all the time "I ll come back next year", you can check it, next year the player won t be in Morocco :lol:

Definitely the worst site, they haven t change the picture for 6 years and it s the same for Atp event in Casablanca :rolleyes:
