I was told that they would announce it 2 weeks before the start of the tournament.

maybe she will play Pilot PEN...if she wins 1 match at the Pilot Pen that will equal almost the same amount of points for winning this whole tourney last year

why do the WTAtour allow this tourny?
honestly intrested, not bashing it.
just a funny tourny.
i understand it's an historical place... but can't it be "tierV" (none anymore) 110K or at least 100K?

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

It only has a 16 player draw, no singles qualifying, doubles, or doubles qualifying like the average tournament. This way having a prize money of 75k is likely equal to an 110k Tier V.

Auckland (Tier IV - 140k)
1st Rd S. Qualifying - 175 x 16 = 2,800
2nd Rd S. Qualifying - 300 x 8 = 2,400
3rd Rd S. Qualifying - 550 x 4 = 2,200

= 7,400

1st Rd D. Main Draw - 550 x 8 = 4,400
QF Rd D. Main Draw - 1,000 x 4 = 4,000
SF Rd D. Main Draw - 1,850 x 2 = 3,700
FINALIST D. Main Draw - 3,475 x 1 = 3,475
WINNER D. Main Draw - 6,500 x 1 = 6,500

= 21,775

1st Rd. S. Main Draw - 1,000 x 16 = 16,000

7,400 + 16,000 + 21,775

= 45, 175

140 - 45,175 = 94,825

Also, take into account those losing first round will obviously get less than having lost in the round of 16 in a Tier IV. Overall, it's pretty fair.

wow - thanks for the money explanation
but (omg, i'm so sorry for this) i'm just curious how does it fit in the tour and what exactly is it with the tourny...

So the players that barely made it on the US Open entry list, or the players who are in slumps can actually have a chance at hard court practice. Most of the players that play here probably wouldn't qualify for the US Open Series events. Sorta like Cincy and Stolkholm, except it is a Tier V

It actually took too long for WTA to realize that with no other tournament around that week New Haven qualies looked stronger than most of Tier IV/V...completely ridicolous

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

I'm a little disappointed with this tournament. Last year the director said that this year they would have 32 players, qualifying draw, and doubles. He lied
