Entry Ranking Cut Off Suggestion
Here is a suggestion.
For each tournament there could be a limited number of players that can play and there could be qualifying. The qualifying would not be any different, day 1 matches could be qualifying. Heres an example.
Say Antwerp had 60 people sign up. Whatever the size of the draw is, could be the # of direct entries. So there is 32 direct entries and 28 other players. The 28 other players could do qualifying, which would be day one matches. Divide the draw size by 4, 32/4 = 8, and that is how many players get in from qualies. So there would be 40 players playing day 2. The top 16 move on to day 3 into the draw. Day 4 would be 8 players left in the draw. Quarterfinals would be 4 players, semifinals and finals would still be 1. This would make it more realistic to the WTA Tour. This is just a suggestion and it only makes top players pick one less day of picks.
I could do entry lists if no one would and set up the direct entries and qualifying lists. ALSO, no one would be neglected from playing a tournament, so the size of qualifying could be anything.
This probably shouldnt be in effect for slams. This is just a suggestion and I wanted to see what people thought.
