Spikey, Im quite sure every National Olympic Committe/Organization chooses players to represent their nation at the Olympics, Players can also put forth (sp) themselves to be eligble or not, It's a matter of the your own National Olympic Committe, I don't think the WTATOUR has much authority over it either.
Im not to sure on that one, If it was 64 entries and 200 odd countries, then I would suggest maybe 1 per Tennis Playing country??? Not to sure about doubles, could be a entire different combination, Your best to find a Olympic Draw and have a look. Or write an email to your National Olympic Committe,
How many players per country Rothes and what are the rank requirements?
Only a maximum of 3 players for country are allowed UNLESS a country has more than 3 in the top 50 WTA so they can send a total of 4
Rank requirements? Well, it depends of the cutoff for the first 48 players commited as the ITF keeps a total of 16 WC to be given...some of them to 'tennis undeveloped' countries like Haiti or Dominican Republic as they have done in the past
spikey hey... maybe the highest on the race rank of the countries could go to the olympics
i do think that you need to make it selective like in fed cup.. btw are you doing the team capitains?
