Re: Manchester, UK in contention to host WTA Finals from 2019

Doha or Dubai make more sense. Or perhaps China. Crowds are irrelevant to WTA profits as they get a minimum fixed fee regardless of any tickets sold. The only thing is every time you need to get new...

Re: WTA tournament coverage in the United States

Is there any figures to show how much losses the WTA is still suffering or have the new TV contracts removed the losses?

Re: BOMBSHELL: WTA to drastically reform the circuit by creating a Premier Division

The basic problem is that they don't have the product to demand the pay they are asking. The Williams sisters don't care about the tour except Miami and they will make mincemeat of the hapless...

Re: "ATP is the real tennis, much stronger than women's tennis" Dubai Duty Free

Re: Aus Open Final: (7) Angie Kerber SHOCKS (1) Serena Williams 6-4 3-6 6-4

Based on what I saw Serena is good enough for another half a dozen slams easily.

Re: Pushers DO win slams

The difference in Aga and Kerber isn't that Kerber is not a pusher whereas Aga is one but that Aga is a powerless player. If anything Aga is more aggresive than I have seen Kerber. She just doesn't...

Re: Pushers DO win slams

Pushers do win slams. Murray won 2.

If anyone thinks Kerber is not a pusher they need to watch this.

Re: With China's economic turmoil: Is Stacey worrying about her Chinese ambitions?

On the contrary she should be patting herself on the back. See the way she's written contracts. No new WTA tournaments nowadays is being sanctioned without govt guarantees. Basically the tournaments...

Re: How far behind is Maria?

There are 2 ways to beat Serena.
1) Have a good serve (players like Stosur) or
2) Have good movement to make Serena rally (wozniacki style player)

Since her shoulder surgery Maria doesn't...

Re: WWW (Australian Open Final): [1] Serena Williams vs. [2] Maria Sharapova

Since her shoulder surgery she has been Elena Dementieva with better mentality and weak movement. No way is she winning against Serena. She's replaced Elena as my gauge to see how weak the tour is....

Re: Who's the "most consistent" player this year (so far)?

I have voted Serena but Bouchard has a consistent pattern. Does well at Slams and crashes early at other tournaments. She's the improved version of Stephens 2013.

Re: On 'too big and too strong', sexism and female athletes

Nothing. Its not racist or sexist however to point out that some female players depend on their athleticism. Nadal also faces the same "criticism" vis a vis Federer in mens tennis. What I find...

Re: On 'too big and too strong', sexism and female athletes

Even on the men's side there are tons and tons of fans who like Federer and his playing style and think Nadal only wins because of his physical superiority. It's not exclusive to women's tennis.

Re: When the US Open final is Peng vs Krunic...

Re: Most Unpredictable US Open In Years?

Serena is the favorite. Till the time she loses no need to speculate about any other favorite.

Even Serena at 50% faces no problems from these basic bitches.
