Can't disagree with your main premise at all,but they've crossed the line and become enablers for players who don't respect the sport,thus seriously hurting their credibility with many sports fans.I exaggerated just a bit,of course,yet the WTA should NOT pamper tankers and underachievers to reward them for NON-effort.....Gotts run,amigo
