Ivanovic VS JJ match just earlier on was between two former #1s, one slam winner, the other finalist. God help us all.

Still a fan of Ana though. One of the best WTA players, when she's on.

They are absolute jokes to tennis. I didn't realize you need to yell/screach/grunt to hit a drop shot or volley. Not to mention, they just sit there and ballbash, sooooo boring.

But yeah, I hate the WTA with pretty much all the reasons you listed and more. Back when Henin/Mauresmo/etc were on top, it was actually pretty interesting to watch occasionally, but since then, it has become utter shit. I mean there is like almost no variety among the top female players. Just hit hard, hit hard, hit hard and scream while you do it. No variation in their games, everything is slower since they are obviously not as physically strong as men, etc. ATP is a lot more entertaining to me.

I follow the WTA, there's so much drama! It's fun. But the level of play on that tour has decreased without a doubt. Still I think the people at this forum makes the most disrespectful remarks about female players, not nice at all.

Do you think I feel threatened by you? You're off and delusional Matthew. And you've NEVER owned me, NEVER EVER. Get real boo, it's high time you realise what time it is.

pathetic thread with many pathetic posts here.

I like both ATP and WTA. Most of the reasons posters gave here for disliking WTA can be found in ATP too. Just this year alone we've seen guys (both lower ranked and top players) choking, playing badly, getting injured etc...anyway have fun with the sexism in here :retard:

The WS may sit there and ballbash. But volleying is huge part of Venus' game and she can perform all kinds of volleys including backhand smashes and stuff. So she can be good to watch in that regard.

I'd actually argue that the Williams sisters are much more entertaining to watch than Nadal or Murray.

Too much moonballing and unforced errors.

's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

WTA peaked in 1997 when Hingis ruled all.

Default Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

I don't 'hate' womens tennis persee, but at the same time I do hate it, if that makes any sense.

I hate the fact its given equal television time to mens tennis, and I hate being forced to watch a womens match which seems to never end due to neither player having enough guts to actually win, holding up a mens match. 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.
