    There is nothing the WTA does better than the ATP. Combining the two tours means the WTA wins, the fans win, and the ATP gets some marginal gains.

    The pay disparity is huge between the WTA and...

    The fact that few other sports combine the men and women is a big 'so what?!?!' for me.

    Given a choice between Marat and Bill Gates, I will 100000000000000000% of times defer to Mr. Gates.

    This is why Novak will never receive his desired level of popularity. Speak like a politician, and you too can be as popular as one.
