Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

LOVE IT.

I love both tours just as much but for different reasons. I like the mens because the overall quality is better. There are generally a lot more rallies and the tennis is much cleaner. Most of my favourites have fun personalities on court and a lot of time it is great to watch. However, there are also many more boring players and I just find that most of the players are like best friends off-court so often we don't get much entertainment outside of the tennis. Also, the matches can often become way too dominated by serve and it just makes me want to jump off the cliff seing all the 6ft6+ players just serving their way into the top 20 and above.

The WTA is completely opposite. The general level of the tour is much lower and it can be awful (although sometimes so bad it is actually enjoyable to watch ) however that's the risk with the flat-ball hitters of the WTA and I find that when they do get it right, the matches are often better than the mens. And the drama (with most girls hating each other) is just unrivalled. Practically no tournament goes by without something happening. For instance the "I'm not Justine" comment by Serena to Jankovic after their match just 3 days ago last week or this classic interview:

WTA >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ATP

Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

From reading some of the comments in this thread, I think some of you are being perhaps a little too harsh?

Well said young man. I see you are 18 years old and have a good head on your shoulders.

Ultimately this is nothing more than a schoolboy thread.

Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

I don't hate the WTA.

Even though women's tennis has been boring lately, I actually prefer to watch or follow women's tennis over men.

There is more drama in women's tennis because there are more players that have personalities.

Men's matches can be boring to watch because they don't show as much emotion and there aren't as many rallies.

The points in men's matches are much shorter than in the women's matches.

I have many favorite male tennis players for many different reasons, most of which have nothing to do with how they play tennis!

Mens quality is better, but the womens drama and personalties are better.

Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

I don't hate the WTA, I'm just indifferent. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't. I do like watching some players, but I don't follow the WTA as closely as I follow the ATP.

But I really hate the grunting by some players. I don't mean normal grunting - the high-pitched screeching and screaming is VERY annoying and doesn't seem natural.

I also don't like a number of players - Serena (definitely), Sharapova (definitely), Henin, Ivanovic, Azarenka, Pennetta, Oudin, Bartoli, Schnyder... usually most of them are on TV ALL THE TIME, so I hardly get to see any WTA players I would want to watch.

except it laurie. We don't like WTA no matter how many "immature" insults you hurl at us. I guess its immature to dislike a lesser version of tennis.

I don't hate it, but I can't stand watching those who screech, it hurts my ears. The low-pitch men's grunt is much more easier on the ears.

This is exactly how I feel as well. That is why I find myself on the women's forum a lot more because the threads are a lot more interesting than the nadal/federer bashing that goes on here.

Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

Why are the women personalities better? Is it good when Serena constantly disrespects Henin? That's good personality and good for the game?

and drama is just a positive spin on choking. When a player is up 5-0 and suddenly its 5-4, it is "dramatic". I always hear that the drama makes women tennis better. Once again I don't think its very dramatic when players miss routine shots in the middle of long rallies. "Oh which shot will they miss?" Is that the best of WTA drama?
