How can Stacey tolerate such stuff? I don't get it...
This. I mean, is this supposed to be a Premier Mandatory. 4 matches a day? Also when they put matches like Vinci-CSN on Grandstand to be televised instead of JJ-Petrova. Allaster can pretty much fuck off. She's done zero to address this situation. It's appalling.

Re: Miami coverage: ATP: 11 Matches vs. WTA: 4 Matches! DISCUSS!!!

The sad thing is that it's getting worse. Last year we got five 4th round matches streamed.
Stadium: Sharapova vs Makarova, Serena vs Stosur, Venus vs Ana.
Grandstand: Li vs Lisicki, Azarenka vs Cibulkova.

Just wait for the 2014 edition.

WTF... They put tomorrow [8]Sara vs [12]Ana on "parking" court-1, despite it's only match of the day (including ATP) where both players are TOP12 seeds

So sad that Ivanovic-Errani will not be seen by their fans world-wide. IMO it should be better than Stephens-Radwanska or Li-Muguraza

There should be more coverage on Tennis.TV, that's the least the WTA can do.
All the journalists tell them to have two commentators.

Fire Stacey and the entire board.

Can't believe the "5th Slam" (even the WTA site says so) has only 2 streamed courts. What kind of shit coverage is this?

4 of the 8 matches not streamed. This is sad.

But wasnt Oprandi-Cibulkova streamed on another court than the two biggest?
I rememeber that it was not in the list of streamed matches before the first matches started...

It was streamed because Venus withdrew (Venus-Stephens was scheduled to be televised), and the WTA have a deal of some kind which says show 4 matches a day, hence we got Cibulkova-Oprandi as a replacement.

Things are going to be even worse in Madrid though, Madrid has the same deal I think, but it will work out even worse because in Indian Wells and Miami the rounds are spread out over 2 days. This won't be the case in Madrid where you will have all the top players playing on the same day.

The ATP has been streaming from 3 courts.

I know people on here are outraged, but it is supply and demand, more people want to watch the men.

Also this is the result of Stacy's big plan to leach money off the men. Whilst it is great for the players as they get more money, it is terrible for actual women's tennis fans as the women's matches will get shunted and the coverage biased towards the men.

Stacy has made her bed and we are the ones to sleep in it.

It isn't solely this though. ATP have just negotiated a better deal with the world feed, whereby WTA have no deal with the world feed. So WTA are literally only showing matches that are strictly for TV, whereas ATP have matches that are probably hardly being shown anywhere live on TV, but are streamed for secondary coverage.

I have no doubt the demand for mens matches is higher, but there is no reason the WTA shouldn't be streaming the 3rd court for secondary coverage as well. I highly doubt some of the demand for some of the no name mens matches shown is higher than the demand for some of the womens matches that weren't shown. But the WTA just sorting out streaming for the 3rd court would make this ratio more like 11:6 or 7. I would be far more satisfied with that ratio.

It also goes deeper in that there are inherent problems with the Indian Wells and Miami coverage full stop, tournaments that are meant to be the biggest stops on both tours, and pride themselves as "5th majors" aren't even showing Round 1 live (and in case of Miami most of R2 live). That is just a ridiculous situation, whatever spin is put on it.

The idea of combined events could work better if it was implemented the same way grand slams do it (or even Rome for that matter), but as you say Stacey seems way too concentrated on making short term gains. These events are doing nothing really to actually showcase the WTA as a whole, and they are meant to the biggest events on the tour! And like I said in my previous post Madrid has the potential to be even worse.

Ana have no problem to sold around 10.000 tickets last night in Miami (capacity of this stadium is about 14.000 seats), she is bigger magnet for tennis crowd than half of current ATP TOP10, and also there will be for sure at least 500 people which will TOP10 Sara attract...
So what's Your point?
