Re: Should the Tournament of Champions fiasco be abolished?
Somehow I like the idea of the Tournament. But I also think a player should at least have to win 4 matches to win the title. What I loved what the place Bali itself, great destination to end the year, Players can play Tennis in the evening and enjoying the beach and the great facilities there. But I'd prefer it as a normal WTA-Event. With that format it was clear that they would always get a nice line-up of competitive players but never with a Top-Player.
The imagination of holding the Event in Sofia is just scary, really. I mean no beaches, sunshine and so on. This will be a sad Tournament. Maybe WTA can surprise us, like they did with Istanbul, but I'm not really confident. Plus, now the Tournament is much more comparable with the championships in Istanbul. I mean the Top Players go to Istanbul, the B-Champions to Sofia, sounds stupid IMO:
Ka. PLISKOVA - E. SVITOLINA - E. VESNINA - A. PAVLYUCHENKOVA - T. BACSINSZKY
N. VAIDISOVA - D. HANTUCHOVA - T. GOLOVIN - A. BONDARENKO - A. SZAVAY - M. PIERCE
