were the stands pretty empty when VENUS was playing? I didn't see any Williams fans writing this this week after they bashed the rest of the tour last week...

Just a guess, but it could be because of the rain.

ESPN showed the stadium and it was raining pretty bad for a good hour or more. I don't think many people returned. It didn't look like it was going to let up at all! ESPN also cut off the match at 5:00! No bonus coverage today! :mad:

For as much as they are known by casual fans, they rarely fill up the stadiums. When Hingis used to play, her early matches were always packed, even if her name recognition among US fans wasn't as high as Venus' or Serena's.

As long as Venus and Serena are ACTIVE on the tour I am fine with seats and people.

It's good that the unpopularity of your favorites don't affect you.

.. oh well.. you tried ktwtennis .. I didn't TRY anything...I simply stated my implicit opinion of some Williams fans bashing the unpopularity of the rest of the tour and my observations on the TV...

:rolleyes: So you were at all of Martina's matches in the States. I've been to a lot of her matches where the stands were empty also and I have been to a lot of Venus and Serena matches where the stands were full.

I am perfectly fine with the amount of people in the stands...they'll fill up come finals time. And guess who will most likely be playing then?! :eek: :wavey:

Your fave is only popular because of her looks, when is the last time she won a tennis match. She doesn't even attract the casual fan, most of the fans who attend her matches never saw a tennis match in their life. ;)
