I imagine that the theory is that because hospitality is provided (and thus players don't need to spend any of their potential winnings on accommodation) the players stand to take away more money, meaning that higher ranked players might attend than would typically appear at an ITF event of the same level that doesn't provide hospitality thus more points are justified for winning.

I guess that that would be a reason
But when non + H tournaments offer Hospitality it makes it seem like a different grade
I think all tournaments should have to offer hospitality given how hard it is financially to be a tennis player

Although I agree that if Donna wants to be a top player in the future she will have to get better on clay I think playing in Madrid would be a waste of time. In her last clay court tournament she lost in Round 2 of a 25K (yes it was to Friedsam but I think she would have won on hard) and the tournament before at Junior RG she lost to Rebecca Petersson. I don't think it will aid her in getting a higher ranking Still, Madrid is in altitude and if it was on Blue Clay again no one could move so she may have won a few rounds
Also, if she plays Madrid as a Merited Increase she won't be able to play Roland Garros as she has already used 3 (US Open, Australian Open and Miami) and RG is before her Birthday
Nope, you should read the rules more carefully. You can only use the merited increases for 2 slams. Again for the third times, I am not suggesting what she should or should not play, I was just pointing out her option.

Re: Donna Vekic

If she isn't good at playing on the clay, she must promote it rather than only focus on hard.
Hope she can play well in Madrid if she plays there.

Re: Donna Vekic

YAY
She needs to build up consistent amounts of points if she wants to slowly and steadily rise in the rankings and tournaments like this are perfect

I hope other questions are not too inappropriate... Are they posted as coments on FB? Did any of you "enter the competition"?
