Re: Should the WTA and the ITF dump the dollar for the euro?
I think the tour as a whole should focus a lot less on america i have to admit, but there is no point changing the prize structure as it would require a complete overhall. The numbers in dollers are nice and rounded figures, all of which make sense and display a clear structure. If you were to change to another currency that would go completly out the window. You can't just change a $25k doller event into a 25k euro, you could round it down, but not up, up is impossible because of sponsorship and raising the money... Simple fact is it wouldnt work and you would either leave the players less well off by rounding down to a figure which fits into a nice pay/earnings structure or you would end up with no desernable structure at all, which isnt good for the game.
