I just read in a magazine that the ATP will star distributing ranking points for Davis Cup next year, due to an agreement with the ITF. Do you think the WTA will follow?

It needs to be set out like a tournament, like Blake suggested

how is it going to work exactly ?

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

It will attract atleast players ranked between #30 and #50 to play more than in past. For TOP30 and especialy TOP10 players it not be enough to make FC more important or attractive than in near past.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

I hope they won't... first and foremost, it is not equal (girls whose countries perform badly at FC won't be able to earn points which could be earn by girls whose country reaches final)

Whatever you do now,
the world still turns.
