Paying people to NOT talk. If money it talking the WTA into returning to China, it's simultaneously muzzling them about Peng Shuai. It's just a peculiar irony - money talks, but sometimes the result is silence.

Good that the prize money has increased. I wonder if there are other perks, like hospitality and traveling (some sort of arrangement for players to fly at a discount. It is a major expense).

Whoever is running social media for the ATP Challenger Tour has raised its profile big time. Every week you get the winners, the trophy shots, all of it.

Now if only the other tour would up the profile of its "challenger level" events...

Yeah I know if wishes were horses...
