Rediculous stat re: Zurich

Zurich is only the 10th time since 1990 that a WTA event has had the top 4 playing. When you take into account all the tier 1s and season ending championships, that's pretty surprising.

Majors don't count as WTA events, do they? I assumed they were always officially ITF tournaments. Same with the YEC.

Re: Rediculous stat re: Zurich

It would be interesting to see when the other occasions were. Off the top of my head I would guess Miami and Filderstadt have at least had the top 4 playing on one occasion. Can't think of many others (does our resident statistical expert AnnaK_4Ever know?!!)
