1) As unfortunate as it is, the appeal in the women's game stems largely in beauty, not ability. More people are familiar with Sharapova and Hantuchova than they are Mauresmo and Petrova. There's a degree of it in the men's game too, but not nearly to the extent that it features in the women's game.
2) Don't call me Chris, you don't know me, and not many people on this message board do either. I don't call you Tim or whatever your name is.
1) Sad truth, but I cant do much about it. Its very cruel actually.
2) I hate calling you 'TCK' but if you want it that way, Amen. My name is Arka by the way, although I wont mind it if you call me Tim.
