Dear Alison, Michelle, Mirjana, Sesil...

So you guys save your best tennis for the WTA tournament that awards less points from the whole calendar?

Even a win in Tashkent or Bogotá gets you more points than here Come on, even ITF Marseille this week gives you more points (and money!) for winning one or two matches there than here

Best luck for Wimbledon, where just one win against any random player in qualifying will give you more points than winning a couple of main draw matches here

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

But if grass suits their games, they have few other options. The point breakdown in this tournament is a little harsh, though.

Re: Dear Alison, Michelle, Mirjana, Sesil...

I have been thinking this all week. 15 points for a first round win and 30 to reach the 3rd round is such a joke.

Because it's the only 64 (56) player MM tournament in the calendar If someone has luck or she is a good grass player then she can win lots of matches.

Re: Dear Alison, Michelle, Mirjana, Sesil...

^ It's nothing to do with the calender, Birmingham has been around forever. They need to just shave it down to a 32 player draw. Tradition be damned. The points distribution because of that extra round is a complete joke.

Re: Dear Alison, Michelle, Mirjana, Sesil...

Most of these players should count themselves lucky they even got into the draw in the first place... I doubt there's any other event on the calendar which has places for ranks as low as some of the girls there.
