Seriuously women's tennis is just no good. There used to be a little bit of interest when the game play was different. But now they all try to play like men(because of the williams) and all it does is make for a much lesser version of the men's game.

Default Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

I actually liked the WTA quite a lot back in the nineties (I still have fond memories of some Graf-Sanchez Vicario matches). I loved the tour up until Hingis -- and then Williams dominance onwards I've stopped watching it on a regular basis. I agree that they started playing like men and therefore lost a lot of attraction they held earlier. The number of injuries and lack of dominance at the non-slams also hurts. I think Henin is exceptionally good but can't say I care for others. That said, I still watch the women's matches at the grand slams cos it's generally better than most of the other tournaments.

Default Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

I used to like WTA more because you'd actually get to see some point construction, more so than on the ATP. Williams sisters ruined the tour. Now the only people able to compete are man-esque players like Stosur or heffers like Bartoli and Kleybanova. Now all the pretty, thin girls in the cute outfits never get on TV anymore.

I admit the quality is pretty bad at times and stuff, but I don't 'hate' it. I do follow it but no where as near as closely as I follow the ATP.

I'll say i'm indifferent about the matter.

Default Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

The level of play is just horrid compared to men. Random bread-and-butter shots end up in the net or backboard constantly, its like watching two Federers in a Masters event. And it feels like the whole thing is in slow-motion. Balls that would be crushed by any ATP player end up being clean winners.

That said, I will gladly watch Henin vs Clijsters, the only two serious players.

Totally agree.
I really don´t like this men/women combinded tournaments like Madrid, Memphis etc. Especially at the GS it´s so annoying...

I dislike it because I find it boring and the quality just isn't the same in the ways I find most important Eurosport only ever showing WTA matches doesn't help either.

Mostly indifference for me, though I keep an eye out for results of some players I like e.g. Dementieva, Wickmayer, Venus.
