It must get frustrating for a WTA supporter having to watch a long 5 set mens match but at least you get to watch high quality tennis unlike the stuff we have to go through when you see a match between two players who can barely hit the ball in they are choking that badly and one of them had the match practically won a set ago and the other had it won a couple of games ago.

5 set men's matches. I must admit, even the best WTA match ever played wouldn't touch the '08 Wimbly final or '09 AO semi, to name a few.

Can you believe that Wozniacki is #3 in the world right now? And was only #2 last week. And look at the way she plays. I've never seen a top player with such horrible stroke technique in my life.

I take it you've already given up watching most of the ATP as it's 3 sets everywhere outside of the Slams.

It would seem you are the one with the inferiority complex because you have to repeat the bolded part over and over again. Why are you so threatened, the WTA is shit, no?

Don't get me wrong. I love a good 5 set classic. The last couple of Wimbledon finals, last year's AO final, excellent stuff. What I can't stand is when the outcome of a match is never in doubt, but it still takes three sets (and usually over two hours) to finish.

Don't hate Marion, she's Federer's no.1 fan.


There have been ATP players with 2 hands on both sides too you know.

Default Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

Too many reasons to state, the thing that bothers me most about the WTA is that they have the nerve and the cheek to have got equal prizemoney at Slams when they don't bring as much revenue as the guys, yet the men are subsidising them. It's pro sport and not communism, it's not hard to see which tour brings in the biggest crowds and revenue on a global scale.

Venus Williams and Mirza at the AO that shit should have been moved to another court.

As for the womens football argument that is rubbish as well. Are they good and talented at what they do, yes they are and they deserve respect for making it in their chosen field. They aren't as good as the men pure and simple, the crowds, advertising and broadcasting revenue reflect this, therefore they don't earn as much and this is not sexism.

Bigger, faster, stronger and tennis being played at a higher overall level on the ATP, it's not that hard to understand.
