At last! we've arrived at some agreement, at least as for the tournament to come this week.
We aren't in agreement on anything else I said? Only that?
You started out saying the issue of which rankings to use is decided unambiguously in the rules, citing that clause, then evaded answering the questions, 1.What does "start of the Tournament" even mean in this context? 2. Which week is "the week prior to the start of the Tournament"?
I think it was in my first post (in this discussion) that I pointed out, be careful, the WTA sometimes takes "the week prior to the start of the Tournament" to mean the same week as the start of the tournament. You flatly rejected that as not being a possible interpretation.
You then avoid answering the followup question, if that is not possible
, which rankings then does this clause unambiguously require for a tournament which starts on a Saturday or Sunday?
I think we may also agree that last question is not answerable, unless you also know when the qualifying draw is conducted (something which is not specified in that clause), and indeed it CAN be the rankings from the same week as the "start of the Tournament".
Do we at last agree on that too? If we cannot, you are saying the WTA in fact used the wrong rankings for several events last year.
