Oh, sure, it is from my era. But, you have to admit:
"The WTA Finals. Live, from Guadalajara. Presented by BIMBO".
The jokes don't come out because they are crashing into each other at the gate. At least for me.

Because they have had no issues holding events in China in the past, where women are also treated like second class citizens, and even Doha, in a country where women are also valued solely by their reproductive capacities.
