Re: WTA Masters Series?

I'm torn, because I love the Tokyo event, but it's harsh to require players to compete the week after a slam. Also, Zurich is so late in the year it has such odd winners now and then, but at the same time, shouldn't they be rewarded for having a good Fall season? Tough stuff.

I think the WTA should have done this years ago. If I had any say I'd eliminate IW(not going to happen but this is my fantasy) and probably Berlin. I'd move Tokyo and Moscow closer together on the schedule if possible. It would look like this:

Miami
Charleston
Tokyo
Moscow
Rome
San Diego
Toronto/Montreal
Zurich

In reality it would probably look like this:

Tokyo
Indian Wells
Miami
Charleston
Rome
Toronto
Moscow
Zurich

Re: WTA Masters Series?

In the 2010 Roadmap, the A tournaments will be mandatory.
4 of them will be 2 weeks. IW, Miami, Madrid, and probably one in China.

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

Re: WTA Masters Series?

charleston, to me, is out of place.

if you took away charleston and tokyo, it would be like...

indian wells/miami
berlin/rome
san diego/toronto
moscow/zurich

each pairing has tournaments that are on the same surface. it makes sense.

but toronto is a weak tournament (not just because of last year), and it makes sense to get rid of it.

Re: WTA Masters Series?

I'd leave Tokyo and Moscow for different reasons.

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...
