10 people were watching Zakopalova vs. Nara. Stadium will be packed for Nadal vs. Dolgopolov.

Not good for WTA. Tier I Moscow with ATP 250 was a better combination.

More than 10, surely. Around half-full, I think.

Re: WTA International combined with ATP 500 = not a good idea.

Yesterday was bad, too.

I didn't realize it was an ATP 500. I just wondered why Nadal was playing. Definitely, most people will prefer to see him over many other players male and female.

Re: WTA International combined with ATP 500 = not a good idea.

Yes, I was thinking the same. I really feel that WTA has to put big Tournaments in big cities in order to attract the people. There's a lot going on in these global cities, people don't really care about an International event. These international events have to take place in cities which don't have such a high amount of global events, I think the crowd in such cities really appreciates having an International WTA Event, like -s'Hertogenbosch, Linz or Luxembourg.

Re: WTA International combined with ATP 500 = not a good idea.

Serena shows up and the place if full.

The entry list in Rio had no star power whatsover. Would you go watch Zakopalova vs Nara?
That's a 1R everywhere else.

The ATP would look bad if the finals were Serena vs Safarova and Ebden vs Kubot.

Re: WTA International combined with ATP 500 = not a good idea.

It's always a bad idea. Often bad tv coverage. Court is blocked with man and nothing happend. Especially IW und Miami are terrible.

Re: WTA International combined with ATP 500 = not a good idea.

It's been a sunny weekend in Rio. People definitely prefer going to the beach than burning in the sun to watch a tennis match. Of course Nadal attracts lots of people, but all his matches were scheduled in the night session or later in the day. I'm quite sure the venue wouldn't be this packed had he played the first match of the day.

Even though the stands during the WTA matches weren't very crowded, the tournament was really successful for both men and women. Hopefully the good organization will be able to attract more WTA stars in the next years.

I couldn't even care to go to Kreuzlingen and watch Bacsinszky vs. Krajicek and that's a match close to where I live between two players I like

Simply because Nadal fans would have gotten ALL the tickets.
