Re: WWW 2012 Kuala Lumpur The 7th Slam (MD Inside) ???
There is something so wrong with these events. You receive almost as many points for winning this as you do for reaching the Dubai final. Your Dubai 1st round match is usually tougher than anything but the final here. There is really no ranking incentive for players ranked between 30-100 to show up for larger events, but the huge prize money for a 1st and 2nd round loss.
I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
