Re: The YEC should be considered a fifth major
That would make an opening for Miami/IW to be regarded slams as well, and then - why not just ditch the regular tour and make it 8 slams a year and nothing else?
besides - the slams belong to the ITF and the YEC belongs to the WTA.
the format is completly different (agree with me that lisicki could beat a hefty lot of top10 players at Wimbledon, but the YEC is out of her league ATM)
the intensity is much harder (no full day breaks between matches)
And tradition has it as a really important event with a very nice lost of winners to it. why change it up just so you can call it a Major?
if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
