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?
The venomous personalities that the top women have is what make them interesting. Most of the time, they aren't politically correct and it's refreshing to hear their interviews contrary to the ATP ones (minus Roddick and a few others). The drama I am thinking of is when they stir the pot a little bit before and after the match (Hingis vs. Graf) and you're expecting a cat fight afterwards lol. I'm the last person to claim Serena has a classy personality, but her antics sure are more amusing than what I've seen on the men's side since Safin retired.

Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

Another choke today from one of the WTA players I actually like. Dementieva. Lost the first set, but won the 2nd set. Was a double break up at 4-1 and ended up losing 7-5

No I follow the ATP much more closely. The supposed great personalities are not enough to let the inferior quality go by the wayside for me.

Well then you dont know their personalities do you? Players like Serena and Safina has ten times the personality of Federer and Nadal, on and off court, and thats just getting started.

Is Safina's personality involve crying and slamming a racket on match point at the French Open? I'm sorry I just don't see the personality argument. Plus Serena's personality is not endearing at all to me.

Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

Serena shits on the whole ATP tour at least twice. She's the GOAT overall. Best serve technique EVER. Best mental fortitude EVER. Funniest player EVER. Don't be mad, Serena is the shit on stick

Nalbandian/Davydenko/Berdych/Gulbis/Nadal rock, the rest is more or less sucky.

this, pretty much.

also, i personally dislike how long some women's matches are. it just goes on and on and on - drives me insane when there's a men's match after it that i want to watch.

apart from kirilenko,sharapova,hantouchova,golovin,ivanovic,w ozniacki(not even on show courts, apart from wozniaki and her matches are shite) the chicks are ugly e.g stosur,williams sisters, henin, kutznetsova etc
some of the watchable ones are exactly the ones you just called ugly. so it's either pretty girls playing arguably shit tennis, or "ugly" girls playing good tennis. up to you, really.

the women's personalities aren't necessarily better, they're just a lot more different from each other, and there are more top players who aren't afraid to give their honest opinion, which causes more personality clashes.

as for the drama - i guess WTA fans just love the unpredictability. that's what makes women's tennis dramatic and arguably, more enjoyable.

Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

I like both tours, but 75% WTA and 25% ATP
The WTA is more exciting for me. It is very unpredictable these days but the new calendar is to blame. And apart from Martinez Sanchez in Rome, no fluke has won a masters (PM or P5) event. Dulgheru won Warsaw last year (equivalent to ATP 500) but now she is playing very well and she's a clay GOAT

I love the drama, personalities, and some players actually are great players
And there have been some great matches too

Marcos Baghdatis Forever!
