Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

The quality is terrible and the players are 99.9% choking headcases. Henin is the only female player I can tolerate watching with my trousers on.

Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

I certainly do not hate the WTA. I've been posting on http://www.tennisforum.com/ since 2006. I'm a fan of Womens Tennis and some of my favourite players include Seles, Capriati, Pierce, Mauresmo and others. I really enjoyed the Italian Open final between Martinez Sanchez and Jankovic, Martinez was even serving and volleying with sucess!!

Its different from Mens Tennis - because they are women for a start!
Holding serve is typically a lot more difficult in the womens game so consequently its always more open.

And women are just different from men anyway so of course the game will be different. The WTA has its issues but the ATP definitely has its issues as well.

Women Athletics is not compared to Mens Athletics - they are different.

I won't vote in the poll for those reasons.

Yes,

But the title of your thread is "Why do you hate the WTA?" That implies that you are looking for reasons why people hate the WTA.

Perhaps a better thread title would be - How Do you feel about the WTA at present? Then have a poll and people could say what they think.

Its not a very nice thread to start in my opinion.

Waiting for a mens match to start on your court at Grand Slams

Having to wait 3 plus hours for the women to finish

Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

Clearly this thread is designed to bash the Women.

Go ahead and do that if it makes you feel better about yourselves......

Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

Someone asked me the other day "who's your favourite womens player"

And I said "whoever wins the first set".

Life is an orange and you're just a little pip.

Ol' Rusty Hewitt - Keeping me moist since 1998.
