Angry Sorry But The Abysmal Crowds In Paris Justify Stacy Moving SEWTA To China

OK you guys are always whining that the SEWTA is gradually moving all of its events to China, South America and the Middle East, and in the process "killing off" European events with decades of history and an amazing atmosphere

but I just watched highlights of SEWTA Paris and the atmosphere was like a dentist office ... the stands were only 10% full, including to watch Disco Petra and hometown favorites Marion & Alize

I would say that for sure the crowds are China Open, Doha, Dubai are better and they will be better for sure in Wuhan ... add in the fact that sponsors in those countries have the $$$ to pay the SEWTA, it is natural for Stacy to pull the ax down on all European events

I have no problem if they are killing Cincinnati for Wuhan, not Tokyo for Wuhan.

Re: Sorry But The Abysmal Crowds In Paris Justify Stacy Moving SEWTA To China

The crowds are usually just as bad in the China events, no? Plus, given the increasing problem with smog, I don't think many players are looking to play a ton of events in China. I know I wouldn't be.

Re: Sorry But The Abysmal Crowds In Paris Justify Stacy Moving SEWTA To China

So because the attendance in Paris has been low for the 1st and 2nd rounds, that automatically justifies moving the tour to "China, South America and the Middle East?" Dumb thread.

Re: Sorry But The Abysmal Crowds In Paris Justify Stacy Moving SEWTA To China

A tournament the week after AO (or after a slam) would be empty everywhere because there's nobody interesting. If you notice there's just 2 top ten only because they lost in the R1\R2 of AO

Re: Sorry But The Abysmal Crowds In Paris Justify Stacy Moving SEWTA To China

Paris is right after the Australian Open.



Regular tour goers are hard-cord tennis fans. Those people surely didn't miss the first Slam of the year. After having a big meal, they are still full to ready to eat some more.


Plus early in the week in Paris, where the filed is not as strong comparing to other Premiers, poor attendance is expected. This is not a good indication by any means to suggest that Asia would have better attendance comparing other Europeans' tournaments.

Agree. They should add more events in Asia, but better not move Tokyo. Cincinnati? I'm not sure. But if Wuhan is going to have a new event, maybe they should start with an international, or a premier for the most.

I watched Mauresmo Open this week. the attendance is not so encouraging, even with home players like Bartoli or Mladenovic in evening matches.

They need to combine men and women tours for every tournament! Hmmm? No? Yeah?
