Don't you think it's unfair for Premier Tournament winners?

Like Lisicki, Mauresmo, Schiavone, Dulgheru, etc that they can't even play at Bali and try to earn big points there? They won premier events but can't play at any YEC but those Mickey Mouse queens can.

Maybe they think the winners of Premier events would usually go to Doha.

Re: Don't you think it's unfair for Premier Tournament winners?

You're late, i've been saying this for the past weeks now. I've been saying MANY points for the whole tour to improve on though... I should make a list and tour reformingplan and send it to them.

Re: Don't you think it's unfair for Premier Tournament winners?

why don't the WTA people make another tourney like Bali but only for the winners of premier tournaments but is not a part of YEC?

Re: Don't you think it's unfair for Premier Tournament winners?

The whole concept of Bali seems rather silly to me anyways. There should only be one year ending championship imo.

LUCIE SAFAROVA!!

Madison Brengle!!
Tsvetana Pironkova, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, Lauren Davis, Petra Kvitova, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Timea Bacsinszky, Madison Keys, Kaia Kanepi, Klara Zakopalova, Agnieszka Radwanska

There's too little players that win premier's for a tournament like that to be possible. The only players out of the top of my head who did this(and didn't win an international or qualify for SEC) are lisicki, mauresmo, dulgheru, schiavone and sharapova.

I think Bali should include those premier winners who don't qualify for Doha as well.

Oh no I mean Bali should keep their rules the highest ranked players who has won international titles, but instead this time includes those premier winners who don't qualify for Doha as well. So Dulgheru doesn't necessarily qualify if her ranking is not high enough.

If you make the rules like this:

Doha: 'grandslamwinners automatically qualify for SEC'
Bali: 'Players who win ANY tournament are in the race towards bali'
Fedcup not in the same week as Bali

You'd get these player fields:

Doha:

Williams
Williams
Safina
Clijsters
Dementieva
Wozniacki
Azarenka
Kuznetsova

Bali:

Jankovic
Zvonereva
Bartoli
Stosur
Pennetta
Lisicki
Mauresmo
Sharapova
Medina-Guarrigues
Martinez-Sanchez
Wickmayer
Schiavone

Now that's what i call year-end championships. And of course this is part of my tour reforming plan

That's what I meant! That's perfect. Much better than the current state.
