Time for a change?

So I see we get quick updates even from $10K in random places like Djibouti ar that South African city I had never heard from.

Isn't it time WTA gets serious about its ranking system and start counting $10K and $25K points for the following Monday after they get finished?? No excuses now, internet is fully available around the globe and I always found this rule a bit unprofessional having to wait 8 days for points to be added

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

The main point is for example is that the final might be washed-out by rain or some other circumstances so they don't have to wait with rankings until some random 10k or 25k comes to an end. I think that's good. 10k and 25k often don't have good conditions and facilities.

So it only may rain in $10K or $25K?

Re: Time for a change?

No, but there are more 10k and 25k than bigger ITFs so there is a bigger probability that play can be washed out.

Sorry, but your reason is not really that convincing

Re: Time for a change?

agreed. there's no reason not to have those points added the same week. plenty of 10ks even have live streaming at this point!

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

Re: Time for a change?

Agree 100%

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Time for a change?

Agree
Given that the vast majority of events on the ITF Circuit now are 10Ks and 25Ks, its only fair that they put the points up instantly
I don't even get why they never put them up at the same time in the first place

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Unfortunately, only the Antalya-Kaya Belek one have livestream

I agree, they should add points right way

Jankovic | Goerges | Petkovic | Safarova | Hsieh | Tsurenko
Azarenka | Mitu | Voegele | Beck | Muguruza | Cibulkova
Koehler | Mladenovic | Garcia | Robson | Cepelova | Duval
Babos | Ormaechea | Jaksic | Gasparyan | Soylu
Allgurin | Kontaveit | Zacarias | Pigossi | Haddad Maia | Abduraimova
Konjuh | Bencic | Komardina | Haas | Jorovic | Galfi | Stollar

Re: Time for a change?

Why not add them like regular >25K and if it's rained out just wait one more week like now?

Congrats Serene Rose Zhang for an eviscerating AO!!!
