There was a time when the WTA gave bonus ranking points for lower ranked players who defeated top 10 opponents. I would love to see that now, that could motivate some players more to do well against a certain legend. But I really doubt we'll see that rule get implemented again anytime soon.
To be honest I am not sure. It may be a good idea. Instead of being intimidated or thinking its just another game, bonus points will push them to fight hard. They can fix their rankings with "just one win".
I am not sure if its fair on the top 10
Instead of being lazy they will need to work harder...
