Much ranting on this board recently about thin crowds at some WTA events, suggesting there's little interest in women's tennis. Well, anyone watching the ATP Basel event this week? You would have thought people were there to see a high school basketball team practicing, with a bare scattering of people in the seats even for late round matches. Difficult to count on TV, but it looked like a few hundred people were watching when I tuned in yesterday. And this is in Switzerland, which has more male top-20 players per capita (population about 8 million) than any country on the planet!
