I'd actually argue that the Williams sisters are much more entertaining to watch than Nadal or Murray.
NO.

If I didn't have to watch womens tennis, I wouldn't hate it, but unfortunately thats not the case.


Its just inferior in its quality. I can understand watching it in the 90s, because they genuinely had a different style to the men, but today they are carbon copies of the men (while just being totally inferior). That makes watching them completely pointless for me.

How many new female players have distinct playing styles? Mauresmo, Hingis and Henin are the the only ones I can think of from the last ten years.

I think most people here who are bashing the WTA and their players have never watched a full WTA match

I only have WTA on for background noise when I am waiting for a men's match to start. If it's the williams sisters I put it on sail fishing or whatever is on on mornings during grand slams.

Your comments... wtf? You're not giving reasons on why you hate the WTA, seems like you hate it for the sake of it.

Rafael Nadal
Juan Martin Del Potro
Roger Federer

real fans actually play tennis. You can't even emulated the wta in real tennis, their so shit
I enjoy the WTA . I also play tennis too so I guess that qualifies myself as a real fan since I like both tours and play. You may be a real ATP fan, but not tennis because a tennis fan means both tours in my opinion

Equal TV time
For example TTC is showing WTA this week from Friday to Sunday and ATP from Monday to Sunday . Wimbledon is also very sexist when it comes to the order of play

Do you have to follow women's football to be a true football fan?

Can't believe I'm gonna say this, but I'm with Everko on this one. WTA is not fun, and you do not have to watch it to be a true tennis fan.

Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

Serena's service technique is pretty much the best around - male or female. Anyone who says otherwise simply knows nothing about tennis. It's not even a question of whether it "looks like she's on the toilet" or whatever.
