WTA Tour Championships - Please vote!

Hey

Last year, the WTA Tour Championships (Year-End Champs) were held in the PYW competition by using the eight real-life best players of the year (Davenport, Mauresmo, Myskina, Kuznetsova, Dementieva, Sharapova, Serena and Zvonareva).

It's still a long way before we reach this event this year, but I want to have a poll on whether you think we should use the real-life eight players, or the best eight players in PYW throughout the year. A simple question, give it some thought and vote



_________
Martijn

The poll will close on the 1st of November.

I think you should use the real eight best players. You have used the real players at every tournament so far, so why not use them at this one?

The real players

Cos in every tournament we have a real plaers And seeded as in real draw (not according PYW rankings)

We can play PYW with the eight best PYW players throughout the year for fun or as additional tournament between the seasons

Although I voted for the eight best PYW players, I think we should do both. After the real Masters, we have a month or two off season without any tournaments. In that period we could organize our own Masters with the 8 best PYW players. Otherwise, I have the feeling that the work you do on the rankings is rather in vain. Ofcourse, this is just my opinion...

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

Real, because we all know that Hantuchova or Clijsters will end up winning if we don't do the real.

The PYW off course, it makes no sense to do otherwise, it would create false final rankings and would rape the game

Isn't that something top ranked players do? Win tournaments. And it has been awhile since Daniela has won a tournament, so I wouldn't immediately conclude that she'd win the tournament.

Yes, that is exactly my objection to using the rela players. It puts certain players too high on the rankings (though not doing well at the WTA Champs means getting few points, but still).

But you use the real players for every other tournament, so it would be kinda stupid not to. You even say in the signature:

Isn't it funny how only Daniela fans voted for the second option?

I know I am not sure what to do I might even be in favour of not having the Championships at all

Still think that the best is to play both things as real as PYW leaders

Seeing that the YEC starts next week, are we going the do the real event or the one with the top PYW players? Or both?
