Thoughts on YEC

A few years ago, we went with what the WTA tour did and reduced the number of players from the YEC from 16 to 8 (and from 8 to 4 in doubles). We did this primarily because of the Tour B championships (international winners).

What would you guys think about increasing the singles players to 12 and the doubles to 6 teams?

Please give me your thoughts, comments, and ideas.

Re: Thoughts on YEC

I wouldn't. I'd make it as similar as real life.
And many people don't send points anyway...
Didn't we vote about this last year?

Re: Thoughts on YEC

Only 1 person didn't send last year and that person was replaced with an alternate (Huubere) who won.

Re: Thoughts on YEC

That must have been two years ago then.
Anyway, I think we should stick to 'real world' but that's only my opinion... let's listen to people.

Re: Thoughts on YEC

I like the round-robin-format, but it would be great to have 8 doubles teams, just to have the same number as in singles and why not the same format again? I really don't like how the WTA changed the doubles to 4 teams only...

Re: Thoughts on YEC

I like the ATP system best tbh.

8 singles + 8 doubles both following the same round robin format, it means more people get a chance to play and huge amounts of doubles points are determined in 2 matches and really have to earned

Carol. Empress. Vika. P3tra. Garbine. Dasha. Casey. Marion.
