IKR!!!!!!!!!!! I also think that it is absurd that not only do they divide your doubles points by 4, but they also give you less points before they are divided. So if a GS winners doubles points are divided by 4, then they should get 125 points, but they only give you 360 to start with so you get 90
You you're doubles points end up being divided by 6
No wonder Demi Schuurs never got higher in the rankings
