Smile The WTA Tier System - Which Player Would You Choose?

Explanation:-
  1. 5 different tiers available - Tier I (Untouchables), Tier II (Grand / Super), Tier III (Merit Order), Tier IV (Honourable), Tier V (Ordinary).
  2. You can only put a maximum of FIVE (5) players per Tier, but you are not obliged to use ALL the Tiers (i.e: You can choose not to use ANY of the Tiers mentioned above).
  3. Untouchable - Players which you think are at a league of their own.
  4. Grand / Super - Players which you think are among the best in the world, but falls short of being an Untouchable for a reason.
  5. Merit Order - Players you think had at least achieved something quite amazing or extra-ordinary (for example, winning a tournament or Slam even though the odds are against her)
  6. Honorable - Players which you think had done something for them to be noticed or respected.
  7. Ordinary - As explained by the word itself... players who are plain ordinary themselves.
  8. SELECT BASED ON PERFORMANCES, NOT ON FAVOURITISM!!!
  9. You can only select WTA players who are currently still active on tour (including contemplating retirement but still playing, and those currently injured). Those which have OFFICIALLY retired are excluded.
  10. Finally, you can only select one player for each Tier (Example: If you select Maria Sharapova in Tier I, you cannot select her anymore for other Tiers).
So now, make your choices and selections!
