It's not emotion. It's wild screeching on slice BHs FFS. When you see how much hate Granollers gets here for his on-court antics, you realise why I and others can't stand the WTA.

Stop lying, Looner. I haven't seen a WTA player play a proper BH slice since 2008.

It's great how some men make fun of women just to make themselves feel better.

The WTA is going through a bad patch right now, just like the one the ATP will have with Tomic winning slams and everything. But it used to be great, and it will be again.

I feel ashamed .

GOATsol, we're not making fun of women to make ourselves feel better. I like to stand up for equal rights and right now women's tennis is shit.

We make fun of the women but the WTA is really dire. The top players are like underpowered versions of Golubev; just hit the ball as hard as possible with no thought or tactics at all and whoever has more power wins, hence why Serena mops the floor with the field when she bothers.

Apparently, Ivanovic DID indeed tell the Serbian media she had conversations with Nadal where he said he did not like the equal prize money. Lol.

What a sexist pig, this Nadull. Time to open a million threads about this incident.

This. You can understand when an over the hill old mug like Noserer says something like this, but when a superstar in his peak says this it must be dealt with severely. Unacceptable.

Good for Ana.

I don't see why it's funny that a woman is standing up for herself.

GOATsol, you take this far too personally. I'm sure if you come back to MTF in 4 years' time and Tomic is winning slams, the opinions of people here will be far more extreme than the nice stuff we have to say about those females screeching on a tennis court somewhere in Turkey .

I'm not taking anything personally.

You haven't answered my question.

Re: Equal prize money debate (Rob Koenig and Tipsarevic agree with Gilles Simon)

Where all the haters at? Go hate on Kneedull like you did on Janko. Oh yeah, I remember, you only hate on guys who speak their minds, not the silent haters and 'sexists'

But w/e who the hell cares anymore, I wanted to ask, if anyone here follows WTA and can anybody say if Kvitova is going to play Fed Cup final? I just remembered that Serbia is playing in the final vs Czech Republic and heard long ago something about Kvivota might be skipping it...

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

This is a men's tennis forum, so I doubt many people follow the WTA here.

If you go to tennis forum, many people follow the WTA.

I agree that the quality of the WTA is low now, but it really does seem like many of you are insulting women in general.

Where did you get that idea? Most people commenting here, me included, are straight men, who obviously love women

The only issue is the quality of the tennis they produce, which is very poor.
