Re: Why did the WTA scrap the bonus points system ?
Bychkova beating Kuznetsova at USO
Zhang beating Safina in Beijing
Coin beating Ivanovic at USO
Washington beating Sharapova in New Haven
Dulgheru beating Kvitova at USO
Suárez Navarro beating Venus at AO
It was a bit controversial at the beginning by now I can only agree. Too many "random/I don't try" losses these days (especially at the end of the season) which would create overinflated rankings for the random journeywoman. WTA understood that when a player like Razzano beat the likes of Serena is not because she suddenly raises her game but in 99% of cases is the top player playing like shit, so there was no reason to give an extra big amount of points to that player as a reward as seen in Razzano's season after that Serena match.
