Looooooove ATP but Fed's dominance + Nadals @ RG has made the slams feel a little dull IMO!

The top 10 feels more exciting on WTA , but ATP has some amazing players too.

If Murray wins today I will be in tennis heaven with both WS and Murray winning their event! Woo good luck Andy!

I'm not following ATP, but I do watch mens GS matches.

Top men play more enjoyable tennis to watch. Due to physical superiority athletism is way better. They don't scream. Well as of rest of stuff like drama, unpredictability, player looks WTA is top dog in tennis.

AlexSydney's poll does have trolling aftertaste however, because there are no middle ground options like ATP = WTA.

I watch both. Which is better? It really has fluctuated over the years. Right now i'd say womens tennis is more interesting and exciting than men's tennis but that doesn't mean it will always be so.

Well I watched the ATP tour a lot, until Stefan Edberg retired in 1996. I changed then to WTA and now I watch the ATP only sometimes (mainly at GS).
The WTA Tour is by far more interesting then the ATP Tour!

When Safin is on court.

No, I generally watch ATP and have some extensive knowledge over RECENT players of ATP.

I don't know all into Lendl, Connors, etc. like I do Court, King, etc.

And yeah... Safin.

Men's tennis is better. I do prefer ATP to WTA, but I watch WTA more. But take away Elena and it'd probably be even in the WTA and ATP I watch, with maybe a slight edge to WTA. Although if we were in the '90s there's no doubt I'd like the ATP much more than WTA. Sampras, Agassi, Chang, Rafter, Ivanisevic, Becker, Edberg, so many other cool dudes...Sampras though :worship:

The grand slams are ridiculously boring for both, but Wimbledon is always good. Wimbledon is just the one slam that doesn't suck anymore. Wimbledon Live is where it's at.

Oh, and my libido likes watching ATP, so that's one advantage ATP has over WTA.

Yesterday I went for the first time watch a professional tournament here in Brazil.
But I usually watch matches on TV because I love Djokovic

If there wasn't Hantuchova I would watch mainly mens tennis which is far more entertaining and better quality wise. However ATP nowadays is nothing like it was in the 90's, although if Nalbandian continues like he ended the past season I might reconsider.

Same here ;) but not Stefan Edberg. I used to watch ATP matches a lot when Magnus Norman was around and he was my favourite player at the time.
