ITF Feed-ups to be eliminated from next yr

@WTA
another idiotic decision and will force younger players to skip ITF and try and play WTA events instead.

In 2010, the ITF Feed-up system will be eliminated. This will allow for 1 or 2 more direct acceptance spots at the entry deadline in select International tournaments.<O</O

Good luck in 2016 to my favs

I really liked the feedup idea. That's real shame.

winners of some 50k-100k events got a place in main draw of Int Series WTA events. (runners up could take spot if winner refused or was already in MD)

at start of this yr they removed the 25k winners (r/u) for feed-ups into Quali draws of Int Series events.

Good luck in 2016 to my favs

Sounds like exactly why they did this. Same deal as the recently righteously enforced ranking punishments for withdrawing from WTA entry lists to play ITFs: the Tour wants the players to pick their events over Challengers, and is going to use everything in its power to make that happen.

Yeah that makes sense.. but it's really bad overall.. ITF and WTA should work together and not be rivals.

The organisations should merge. Why are there two organisations?

Re: ITF Feed-ups to be eliminated from next yr

At least they could try and make the SE for WTA winners/finalists the previous week...it is amazing how they haven't implemented it yet

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: ITF Feed-ups to be eliminated from next yr

got a reply from ITF


This is because, unfortunately the majority of the players did not take up the Feed Up spots this year and it has been the case for the last few years.

Good luck in 2016 to my favs
