Re: Womens Tennis in General, vol. 2
I have never heard of that rule about Internationals before grand slams don't have the same rules. It sounds a made up rule to me because all of the main events the week before grand slams are Premiers (Sydney, Brussels, Eastbourne, New Haven) with an International alongside them. None of these international's have ever had multiple top 10 players to my knowledge (in fact they rarely have any, because the top 10 players normally all go to the premier event). It would be a really cheap move if true, and does nothing to help the tour.
