So lack of commitment, irresponsability and overall laziness are qualities to praise now?!

Explain how showing up will avoid a zero-pointer. How many points would the WTA assign to a player for not playing? Of if you can paste the WTA rules about avoiding ZPs that would be appreciated.

Na Li withdrew from Doha 2013 even though she was commited as a top 10 player ... therefore she gets a 0 and it must count as one of her best 16 ... originally she had 125 points as her 16th result and now it is deducted from her ranking total

if Na flew to Doha and retired in her 1st match (like Kirilenko) she would receive 1 point for Doha but it would not count as part of her best 16 so she keeps her 125 points

this is exactly what Viktoria did in Montreal 2012

They should just do it atp style. The tier 1s must count towards your total if you make the main draw. Forces the players to schedule a bit smarter as well.

new addition based on Doha: Angelique Kerber

although hardly can blame her ... it is her 1st time in the top 10 and with potential to get a piece of that Bonus Pool ... of course she shows up in Doha even though she is injured

They only have to play 4 Premier 5.
There's no excuse to tank Doha if you can skip it.

they must decide at the beginning of the year which 4 of the 5 Premier 5 they will play ... so if Doha is one of them they will get a 0 if they skip it

Since 2010 Maria has played (and I mean played in person) 13 WTA events each three past years so there's not a chance she exceeds the 16 limit regardless of the "0". And two of those "0" are counted in because she hasn't played a single International since Auckland 2011 (since she stopped playing Birmingham, her trademark MM in the past). Current ranking lists Maria as having played 16 events but those are 13 scores + Olympics + four zeros "0" (two MM and one for Rogers Cup from which she has withdrawn). One of those zeros (Doha) is replaced by the Olympics though. So, effectively two of those "0" don't count since MM aren't mandatory.

FITD: Winner - Portoroz 2010, Tashkent 2011, Istanbul YEC 2011; Suicide: Winner - Fes 2011, Memphis 2012, Nuernberg 2013, Sofia TOC 2013, Hobart 2015, Tianjin 2015
TT: Winner - (Singles) Tashkent 2012; (Doubles) - (w/Broseghini) Cuneo 100k '10; (w/Peek-A-Boo) Contrexeville 50k '10; (w/JustPetko) Bucharest 75k '10, Nantes 50k '10, Marbella '11, Washington '11, Linz '11, Istanbul YEC '11, Opole 25K '11, Pattaya City '12, Tashkent '12, Pune 125k '12, Memphis '13, Carlsbad '13, Marrakech '14, Washington '14, Hong Kong 25k '16

Why don't leave the chance to a healthy player and leave the audience a proper match?

Its 13 events + three zeros (Charleston, Montreal and Cincinnati). These zeros do not effect her ranking right now, but one more missed commitment would mean that she would lose at least 225 points.

That's exactly how it works.
I always laugh when people criticize the way the WTA schedule is set up, when an almost identical counterpart in the Masters/ATP 500 system flourishes successfully on the ATP.

When did Caroline do this? I have no recollections and the only times I can ever remember her retiring she was genuinely injured or sick (Zheng, Kremer, Wozniak). In the Kremer match, she retired up 75 50 because she knew she wouldn't be able to play the next round. If you're referring to any of her first round losses, I think she just got beat in all of those. You can't tell me she didn't try last year vs Safarova as she had a match point. Same idea for McHale x2 and Vinci. Or it could just be I have a selective memory when it comes to her.
