I think there is a little bit of Russian machismo going on with Tarpischev.

Saying "it was accidental, we don't want it - we've got Kremlin cup" sounds like "we don't need stealth aircraft - we've got thermonuclear ICBMs".

Sharapova could help Russia get YEC using her "star" power but she's american with russian passport and makes americans happy and fat with her candies xD

hence empty stands on Kremlin Cup and St Petersburg open.
empty stands mean nothing , because these events are too local for big cities with just a few well known players participating in

for instance I'm absolutely sure that for Fifa World Cup will be almost impossible to buy tickets

You know nothing about Russia, right?
Quite the contrary, nominating Kazan meant they were a bit serious (though not so much, I suppose). Nobody needs another sport event in Moscow or St. Petersburg, these cities are too expensive, have a lot of traffic problems and they are choke-full of different events, hence empty stands on Kremlin Cup and St Petersburg open.

Sochi is overwhelmed with all this Olympics thing, (I just cannot imagine their future hangover, after all this shit finally finished).

Kazan is so-called "sports capital of Russia", it's soccer, ice hockey, basketball, volleyball, water polo and rugby teams - multiple national champions. Now they want to become "tennis capital" as well.

Agree wholeheartedly with the last four posts. Also, if Russia really wanted it, they would have got it. At the very least, they wouldn't be the first to be eliminated.

Stacy, will figure this out, after she's fired, and she watches someone finally excel.
Yup. You'd've thought they'd have learnt by NOW that chasing the biggest short-term pay cheque is a terrible strategy Having people watch an event like the ATP London finals, where the crowds are full and fully-engaged, is much better for the long-term health of the sport, even if they're not lining the ATP/WTA players/CEOs' pockets as much in the short term as places like Dubai and Doha are.

It seems every WTA's CEO is a moron, they can't catch a break.

This is so embarrassing for the WTA. People are actually going out of their way to dissociate themselves. Someone fire Stacey already.

laughable comments.

It's bizarre that the ATP is going from strength to strength while the WTA isn't. The ATP's end of year tournament is a massive success. The WTA management team surely can learn some lessons?

I wouldn't worry too much about this. It's not going to do too much damage, if any.

But I'm still not impressed with the current management of the WTA. They aren't focussing on increasing the Tour's profile. I know there were criticisms of the previous management but they seemed to have been more successful in that regard.
