Indian Wells, California - The women's WTA is well-placed to withstand the current world economic downturn with major sponsors all healthy, though boss Larry Scott says he expects no growth in tournament revenues this year.
"We are fully sponsored, they've not gone away. We're doing better than a lot of other sports," said the CEO during a visit to the Indian Wells Masters on Tuesday. "There is anecdotal evidence that entertainment and sport do not suffer so much in a recession.
"People don't want to give up their diversions."
