Smile Vancouver WTA tournament to increase $150,000 and upgrade Tier IV next year.

In our local newspaper today, Vancouver WTA tournament will increase to $150,000 and become Tier VI since the level Tier V will be removed next year.

great news for Vancouver

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

George Carlin

Great news for Canada! All the tennis events held in Canada always draw extremely well. I hope we get another tournament in the near future, like say a permanent Toronto event.

It's about time they eliminated the Tier V level; I've always considered those events to be glorified ITF Challengers. Personally, they should make the cut-off at Tier III. The difference in prize money between a Tier IV and a Tier III is so miniscule ($30,000), that Tier III should just be the default,

Grand Slams ---
YEC $3,000,000
Tier I $1,300,000
Tier II $585,000
Tier III $170,000

So much more simplified with this format.

What will happen to Hobart and Canberra if Tier V is being eliminated? Those draws certainly aren't lacking.

they will be upgraded.

I think that prizemoney should be as follows:

Tier One--3 million

Tier Two--1 million

Tier Three--500K

Tier Four--250K

Tier One would have all top 50 players, Tier two 5 top ten and 8 top 20, tier three 1 top ten and 4 top 20, tier four 4 top 50.

I'm also for change, though I'd like 2C some form of revenue sharing with smaller markets, as in the National Football League. (And the YEC has been a financial bust in LA). BTW, you omitted the 2 "Super Tier I's" @ IW and Key Biscayne (that both get 2 week blocks). IW was $2.1 MM last time I checked, KB ova $3 MM.
