but Tashkent is Tier IV...........
Tier IV and Tier V are for lower ranked youngsters
who possess the potentials to play for points and exposure,
or for veterans to come back for.....
why would they want to cancel this event..
i understand it's bad scheduling,
but it can still fit well along with
what's the difference b/w winning Tier V and
winning both 25K+H and 75K+H challenger events?
you actually get less prize money and points for WTA events,
u know, players can just play challenger and high Tier qualies
and get high in the ranking,
but low tier events are there for a reason,
maybe some people dont really care
about people who are ranked lower than 20,
or even lower than TOP 10.......hell, lower than Serena or Venus,
but that doesnt mean lower ranked players dont exist,
so absolutely disagree with the way WTA organizes the events,
how can you possibly add bonus money to Rome,
get all those prize money up for high Tier events,
and promote Antwerps Warsaw etc. for top players
while canceling low tier events so those
lower ranked players cant have their ends meet,
that just doesnt make sense to me.
lower Tier events are there coz they need be.....
