Suppose this was you who had bought tickets. I don't believe you'd think losing top players in this event would be funny at all, especially for the tourney organizers in their maiden event for San Jose. Watched some of these matches and the attendance is so-so to sparse with only Serena packing the house. With California being a graveyard for tennis (ladies and the gents), sans IW, San Jose is trying to establish an identity and having Serena, Garbine, Venus and Vika show up is/was a major boost for them in addition to the fact that San Jose is the only event in the Series that is played on the West Coast for both women and the men, while every other event is either in the East or Midwest. For a small event like San Jose if top players don't elect to participate, then this tourney can easily fold like every other men's or women's event in California. Serena losing was huge for the gate here. There is no one else in what's left of this draw capable of attracting what she drew for her match and the people who bought tickets in advance are indeed disappointed, as I would be.

If Vee cannot or does not win this title, I'm afraid her title winning days are over, sadly.

Vika "retired" after winning the lst set 7-6, down 0-3 in the 2nd.

Nice job by the players for this event.....

Congrats to Buz', who at age 30, just won her lst WTA Tour title over Sakkari, who reached her lst Tour final. Lopsided dismissal, but still an experience for both players at this point in their respective careers. Nice for Buz', blooming late in the day......

More-than-decent house (about 85% of capacity) for the final, tho' disappointing by the top players disappearing at this maiden event.....

Washington wta stadium looks on the empty side.
Is that a huge tattoo Sveta is sporting?

@ CrossCourtBH:
She ended up winning.
Sorry for Vekic. Wish she had won. I heard she had match point. Sad

and then stream stopped.
