Too many mandatory tournaments makes too many injuries. (especially with IW and Miami as back to back...add in Charleston and you'll have a shitty clay court season and Wimbledon). Bad idea. Look at where the men's game has gone with too many mandatory tournaments in the summer.

Re: What tournaments do you think should be mandatory?

San Diego is no more.

It's hard to pick tournaments that should be "mandatory." They have to be a week or two separated from the Slams. Not too many in one place. First of all these Super-events need sorting out. Would have to be two in Europe one or two in America. One in Asia.

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

4 mandatories + 1 GS in USA. Hello, this isn't USTA Tour.

Anyway San Diego is gone for good from the calendar.

Re: What tournaments do you think should be mandatory?

well making indian wells mandatory would just be dumb.... 2 of the tours biggest stars def wont play it... they'll just take the fine...

I dont think any of them should be mandatory... maybe have a you must play 4 of these 6..... cause what sets the GS apart from these other tournaments is that all the top players play them.....

Especially on the O.P list... I mean you have those 6 tounies... plus the 4 grand slams... plus YEC. heck thats practically all Venus, Serena, and Justine would play..... it'd take away from the other tournies... and youd end up with Kuznetsova walking away with a tier 1 like she did this year witheveryone retiring..

Re: What tournaments do you think should be mandatory?

The slams. End. I don't agree with Miami being mandatory. I much prefer IW to Miami, and if I were a top player I'd pick IW instead of killing myself.

Miami is already mandatory, San Diego had its last tournament this year and Zurich is Tier II next year (gone in 2009).

It's good as it is now. Maybe they can make Indian Wells and YEC mandatory as well.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova
