They want to kill Doubles.

Because players who never plays Doubles but want to try it with a friend of them who's rnaking is not high enough to give them a WC or a direct place will never get in and they won't get the WC. So they will not play.

IMO doubles is for veterian players who can't do anything in singles...

For veteran players? Like Stosur for example?

It's pure idiocy, thanks WTA.

But the important thing is that young players won't be allowed to play doubles unless they are given a wc. And when you want to play with someone who is not a top doubles player you can't. I don't give a shit about prizemoney.

Was prize money even given in Doubles Qualifying? Can't imagine it would have been very much if it was.
