WTA players will receive points for 2004 Olympic competition
PARIS -- Women will receive rankings points for their Olympic results for the first time in 2004, a change designed to encourage participation.
The men's tour began awarding rankings points for the Olympics in 2000.
The change for women was announced Thursday at the French Open by the International Tennis Federation.
"This agreement will make the event even more meaningful to our players," WTA Tour chairman Larry Scott said.
That makes real sense to give players ranking points for what, in some degree, is a GS competition.
