ROUND ROBIN! Good or Bad

Was wondering what everyone thinks of the Round Robin format!

Do you like it? Would you prefer the old 16-draw knock-out event?

Discuss!

I like the idea of round robin but i think the format should be slightly different. I say

16 players divided into 4 GROUPS
eg GRP1 (No.1,No.5, No.12, No.16)
GRP 2 (No.2,No.6, No.11, No.15)
GRP 3 (No.3,No.7, No.10, No.14)
GRP 4 (No.4,No.8, No.9, No.13)

The WINNER of each group meet in SEMIFINAL!

Re: ROUND ROBIN! Good or Bad

I think its fine for the YEC.

They should make the scheduling as follows tho:

Day 1: 2 Red Matches, 1 Yellow Match
Day 2: 2 Red Matches, 1 Yellow Match
Day 3: 2 Yellow Matches, 1 Red Match
Day 4: 2 Yellow Matches, 1 Red Match

It would _somewhat_ avoid the scheduling issues we have here.

totally agree......... thats the way the ATP World Champs worked for many years.
Also the two winners of the opening gp matches play each other on 2nd lot of gp matches (and the two losers vice versa) so to avoid dead matches.

Good luck to my favs

Re: ROUND ROBIN! Good or Bad

I hate it with a pation, maybe I'm too lazy to figure out, but it just seems too complicated. I say just keep it the normal way. It's the end of the year anyway. I don't think anyone should have to play another match after they lose, because that mean's you;re playing an extra match even if you stay in you're group. They already play a million matches a year so.... I feal like it''s better for the player physically

Anna Kournikova
Daniela Hantuchova
Jelena Dokic
Anna Chakvetadze
Tatiana Golovin
Maria Kirilenko
Ai Sugiyama


Other faves are-Hingis, Pierce, Myskina & Dementieva

Re: ROUND ROBIN! Good or Bad

Players like Nicole, Jelena, Anna C, Ana I
are close enough to Martina, Lena, Nadia,
that having 16 is no problem

If Sveta ends Sharapova's win streak and doesn't get in, it's shows how unfair this is.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

then we could say players like Na Li, Hantuchova, Golovin are close enough to Nicole, Jelena, Anna C, Ana I
are close enough to Martina, Lena, Nadia...............

then we got about 30 players

Good luck to my favs

Re: ROUND ROBIN! Good or Bad

To be honest, Golovin might have had a better shot than Nadia or Lena

Re: ROUND ROBIN! Good or Bad

No I hate it: even for the YEC. Round Robin Sucks
Tennis is a sport based in the present, at the end of that days match there is a winner and a loser: the winner takes all, the loser goes home.

Re: ROUND ROBIN! Good or Bad

I prefer the olden days with 16 players when the top players could ease themselves in with a nice demolition of a pedestrian player, then from the quarter finals on every match was a)interesting and b)meant something. Oh, and bring back the 5 set finals. They were crap, but one day there might have been a good one.

Re: ROUND ROBIN! Good or Bad

I like the round robin, it's more exciting. Normal it's over if you loose a match, but not here. So, the player who lost a match really want to win the next match. That gives tensions and I like that.

Good luck for the 2016 season:

• Ana Ivanovic
• Angelique Kerber
• Kiki Bertens


Caroline Wozniacki, Serena Williams, Petra Kvitova, Jelena Jankovic, Belinda Bencic, Sorana Cirstea

Re: ROUND ROBIN! Good or Bad

I had a feeling Henin did not give her all for the match against Mauresmo, this resulted to unfair advantage for Mauresmo over Hingis.

Henin was trying to hit flashy exhibition shots in the end.
