You can tell she learned English just by speaking it and not writing it. I guess that's more impressive, but she really needs a spell check! :lol:

Sveta needs to get to bed earlier anyway if she doesn't want to go out in the third round or whenever.

It's discrimination against the unfamous, Igor, not against women. How many times have we had to suffer through a replay of a match featuring a famous woman while a men's match was going on?

They only had around 300 people watching the Klaybanova vs Navarro last night, which is a disgrace. However when the Roddick match ended, the Jankovic match was still going on live and so was the Stosur match. Instead they show the Tsonga match which was over hours ago.

I have seen too many matches in this tournamnent where the ladies are playing in front of empty crowds.

When it's all said and done only 18 ladies matches will have been televised by the Tennis Channel and Tennintv.com for Indian Wells. I will not renew my subscription for next season, that's for sure.

I am a much bigger fan of the WTA than the ATP, but the ladies are way overpaid simply because they struggle to draw fans. Remember Indian Wells in 1 of 6 tennis events that can actually pay for the prize money on it's own, even though the sponsors lend a big here, as they ususally do.


Did you see the crowd for Radwanska vs Bartoli? You can find more people on one beach bay than the amount of people that came to this match. The other day Nadal had 16,000 fans filled to capacity on stadium 1, but the next match was a ladies match with less than 3,000 fans. They could have stayed, but apparently Nadal helped them shoot their load. I guess the fans went to another court or just went home. That really made the WTA look bad.

It doesn't matter whether you schedule the ladies first, last or in the middle, the fans are not going to come unless the Williams sisters are playing or Sharapova is playing.

The ladies need to all start chipping in some of their undeserved profits to pay a camera man, so we can see more matches. It might help develop new fans,lol. Listen, the plain truth is, the as long as the WTA and ATP have sponsorship, they could care less about how many people go to the matches. It's all about tax writeoffs anyway.

Hopefully the big Radwanska vs Dementieva match can draw up 1,000 fans today. The loser of the match can still laugh all the way to the bank.

That is typical of how tennis is treated in general.
A channel calls itself Tennis Channel, and they show tennis.
But they show the same match over and over, even when there are live matches being played at that tournament

I'm surprised no one has come in and made the joke that Kleybanova-Suarez Navarro isn't a women's match.

Were they showing Federer?

Who'ld blame them for showing a tape of that match?
Tennis super-mega-gigantic-star losing 7-6 in the third + wasting MPs doesn't happen very often.

Then you have two WTA nobodies (to the casual fans).

The choice is hard. :tape:

It wasn't the Federer/Baghdaddy match that was repeated in place of Kleys/CSN it was Murray/Russell. She was talking about TTC's broadcast. ;)
