WTA STARTS ADDING BALL PERSONS TO ATTENDANCE TOTALS

THE LEMON: IMAGINATION SIX. TOLERANCE LOVE.

Indian Wells, CA- Ray Moore must be feeling self-righteous after reading the news over a Virgin Bloody Mary this morning.  The Women’s Tennis Association has updated how they will calculate attendance figures at all women’s tennis matches starting at the the next years 2017 Indian Wells event.

“It has come to our attention that everyone that enjoys a tennis match should be counted.  It is the civil liberty for all in attendance whether paid staff, volunteer or ball person should count towards attendance figures.  We want to accurately reflect the cyclical popularity of our sport”.  WTA CEO Steve Simon made the announcement during and impromptu press conference where all reporters in attendance matched the recent WTA Baku event.

The WTA will be setting up Hawkeye technology on all egress points surrounding women’s main draw tennis matches to accurately reflect our assets that will include live reporting for all to see during changeovers.
