Gold exempt?

Could someone explain what gold exempt is? How do you get it, what is the use of it? Just curious!!

Go into "Statistics" when you go back to the main page. It explains it in there.

Carot did all that work just for times like this.

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

They are the players "elected" by the tournament owners in assotiation with WTA as the players who bring public to the court.
They are the players that SELL TICKETS.

Well, no, let's make sure we get everything right.

The Gold Exempt players include:
1. The Top 16 players in the world following the US Open, and
2. the four most "desirable" players ranked 17-50 as elected by all of the WTA Tour tournament officials.

Being Gold Exempt allows you to bully your way into any tournament you want, ahead of players not Gold Exempt. There are rankings within the Gold Exempt as well; for instance, if one spot has been held for a Gold Exempt player and the #3 and #5 player want to take it, the #3 will get in and the #5 will not. The #5 player, however, will be put ahead of all of the other players waiting to get in.
