Hoping to attract more tennis fans in Asia, the WTA is moving its season-ending championships from Istanbul to Singapore and will revamp it into a 10-day event with music, entertainment and tennis-related symposiums.
On serve and when whipping his forehand, Novak Djokovic's grunt is that of a bullfrog, "WooooAH-UH." Rafael Nadal goes for a throatier, "AAArrgggHH." Occasionally, Andy Murray offers up a more hushed, constricted, "Eeeeeehhh." From Roger Federer, of course, we tend to get the sound of silence.
From Australia to Belarus to China, the top of the women's tennis rankings looks like a United Nations of tennis.
WTA chief executive Stacey Allaster says "as they have done throughout their careers, both players continue to set new milestones for Chinese tennis. Their accomplishments are truly inspirational."
"We're ultimately in the entertainment business and trying to broaden our reach," WTA Chairman and CEO Stacey Allaster said in a telephone interview ahead of Monday's formal launch. "We know that it's a great way for us to expand our fan base."
