Post Suggestion for FWTA

A player's ranking should affect the amount of points they have to spread over three sets.<br />Ex.<br />Rank/Points<br />1/110<br />2/108<br />3/107<br />4/107<br />5/105<br />6/105<br />7/105<br />8/105<br />9/102<br />10/102<br />11/102<br />12/102<br />13/102<br />14/102<br />15/102<br />16/102<br />17-?/100

This would make breaking through to the top harder and more realistic.

Also, you could award a bonus point for the three sets for every tournament a player wins (this bonus point would fall off if the player doesn't defent her title the next year).

ugh, why do they all suck????????

The FWTA is always open to suggestions and I'm pelased you have something to input to make the game better.

<br />This is something that I feel is worthwhile and I would like the players to vote in this thread, for or against it.

Thanks <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

It wouldn't be fair for new players, but it'll be good if the points are few, 5 max for the #1, & that 10 max for tourneys, well, that's just my opinion

Ok:

I think this should be it:

<br />#1 - 106

# 2 - 105

# 3 - 104

# 4 - # 10 - 103

# 11 - # 20 - 102

# 21 - Onwards - 100

<br />What do you guys think?

I vote for it:

<br />That makes it:

<br />For: 3

Against: 1

Not Sure: 1

i am for it <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.
