~~Suggestion for Sanex Champ Format~~

i think one of the reason that there is less popularity is coz
there is almost no built up into this tournament,
and people find that there is no one to cheer for,

so i would suggest having a qualifying round,

so the TOP 8 players will occupy MD as the seeds,
and in the qualifying round, #9-#16 will be the TOP
8 seeds playing 8 players, 4 that remained in the TOP 20
and also 4 WC's.........

so this way all TOP 20 players will be able able to go there,
and then by doing this, at lease the audiece can
get a sense of who the underdog is,

Personally I dont think it is a format problem, I think it is to do with the way it is marketed.

The guys have Master Series events, and then the masters series final. I think the WTA should give an name to Tier 1, something like 'Elite Series' (someone can think of something better Im sure) and then call the WTA Champs the Elite Series final.

it at least sound more interesting then WTA Champs.
