There was an interesting thread about a player who lost his money and points and lost the possibility to become number 1. Yes it was about a male player, but it IS relevant to a WTA board, because the same thing could happen to a WTA Jewish player.

I don't understand why would someone delete an interesting thread when there are so many vapid threads on GM. :confused:

Or would it be too hard to ask for a section about tennis news that aren't totally related to the WTA?

A lot of things that happen on the men's tour can also happen on the women's - that doesn't make those things relevant to a WTA board when they're not happening to WTA players. (and no, I wasn't the one who deleted the thread)

I'll let Poe and amanda know about your request for a more generalized tennis news forum.

At worst I don't mind the thread being locked, but it's kinda frustrating to post a reply and then pouf the thread is gone. ;) I really thought it was an interesting story, ITF decisions are closely related to womens tennis IMO, it wasn't just a random ATP result like Dent beats Fish lol.

I expected lockness but not deletion. :confused:

I guess the thread title should have been "Could this happen to Anna Smashnova" or something. ;)

A tennis news section is not needed. There's already a place to post news that is related to all aspects of women's tennis already on WTAworld.com - be it seniors, juniors, or even retired players.

We have two separate forums for a reason. It enables us to manage our infrastructure more effectively resulting in a far improved community experience for everyone.

The problem is: Sometime WTAworld-members would like to discuss not 100% WTA-related tennis news with other WTAworld-members.

MTF is often an unpleasant place.

Then on what section should be a thread about an ITF decision??? Like the thread who was deleted... The whole point of the thread wasn't really about a man player, but more about ITF decision regarding Jewish tennis players, and it includes both men and women.

It's their good right though. :)

BTW, this aahheeiiiii guy had posted three times before you hacked into his account. Okay, these posts were from January 2003. But he might come back. So I would prefer if you chose posters with 0 posts. :)

It is their right, but you'd think they'd spend a lot less time deleting posts and banning people if they were a bit more reasonable. Maybe they just enjoy creating friction. :shrug:

Two products: one for WTA, one for ATP, i think it's only logic we try to keep those apart and are trying to create flow for the lesser known of the two

If they were, I (and others) wouldn't be here for different reasons (except for those who'd create new identities/IP's to post, which I personally wouldn't). And yes footballer, I realize from the smilie that you're just being funny, BTW.

Didn't answer my point, but thanks anyway. The thread which was deleted had nothing to do with the ATP.
