    Tennis Twitter was talking about the complete lack of spectators in Istanbul and I thought nothing could be worse that the empty stands in China.

    A replay of Mladenovic/Yastremska just came on. This is the absolute worse I've ever seen.

    Yeah, I didn't see it, but I believe. There's been such a push for big sports competitions in Turkey, in Instanbul in particular, and they regularly cite a lack of enthusiasm as a problem and nothing I've seen ever really combats that perception. They need to try to pack what they do have, even a smaller WTA tournament, if they ever want to land those bigger fish.

    Re: WTA Int'l Istanbul 4/22 - 4/28 2019

    IIRC, when the year-end WTA event was in Istanbul, it was very well attended. But there's a pretty big difference in star power between that and this draw.

    Re: WTA Int'l Istanbul 4/22 - 4/28 2019

    There definitely is. There's a men's tournament there too and same thing as this. But when enthusiasm gets repeatedly used as a mark against getting the sporting events they want to land they need to get these smaller tournaments full just like the WTA Finals. They need to figure it out. Maybe offer tickets to school and university students or something. There are plenty of less popular events in the Olympics, and the IOC wants everything to have a live audience, not just the gymnastics, swimming, and track and field, etc. It's definitely not a good look for the WTA, but also not a good look for Istanbul yet again.
