Re: What does the WTA need to do?
I truely believe Serena W is not a good representative of WTA and of tennis overall to promote tennis for young girls but she´s the only active legend of tennis so...
And, as long as Serena keeps ridiculing the WTA tour with her persistent slam finals nearing her 40s (she shouldn´t be making all thos finals playing like that, regardless of her age), no other player will get confident to take over and win it all. Something similar happened in the late 90´s with Graf, who pushed back Hingis and Venus ambitions, but she at least retired at 29.
The problem might be also generational, maybe the new smartphone generation will never be as good as the previous ones because ATP has a similar problem, albeit with 3 legends and not just 1, vying for slams, while the rest is pretty useless, so, there´s not much WTA can do actually
