I've watched at least one match a day since monday and while I've tried to defend the WTA in the past, it's really impossible to do so anymore. Here are some oddities I've seen so far: 1. Azarenka, no. 1, playing before a few dozen people in a 10,000 seat stadium. Most are asleep or checking their phones. 2. Sharapova with a security detail of 5 personnel, all in suits, sunglasses and earpieces, just to walk to a match. WTF?!? 3. Kirilenko taking a half hour bathroom break to interrupt an opponent's momentum. And losing anyway. 4. America's sweetheart, Melanie Oudin, coming in 40 lbs. overweight, and making it to the 2nd round anyway. 5. Azarenka playing her first match and spraying balls all over the court like Ichiro Suzuki during batting warmup. --- I could go on and on, but here are some possible improvements: 1. lower the prize money for women. This gets rid of the b#tchy diva behavior which is completely comical and undeserved (Serena, Sharapova) 2. hold matches on courts with fewer seats (500 to 2000 during the first week). 3. enforce the interference rule: no more shrieking, howling, yelling and crying during points. I don't know what else to add. Help me out here.
