Exclamation New rule for FWTT ... please VOTE ... super IMPORTANT

Hello, I want to make this new rule and of course it wont exist unless you people want it.

The rule would be


The reason is that many people don't care, they send points and they keep their player in the draw, while qualifying people change points and lose in qualies instead of having a chance in the main draw.

This would make players to always keep in touch with FWTT and also giving a chance for qualifying people because if they lose they could get a Lucky Loser spot.

If there are no lucky losers, then the player would use 10,10,10... in both ways the player would get that tournament added in their tournament total.

This sometimes happen like this week when I advice with time that I dont have last week points.

Also, what about if you send points for 10 str8 weeks and then forget or you are unable to send because of some problem? Ok, if this player is considered to send points usually (i mean sending points everytime), then this player would use last week points.

In case of vacations you can always send points before the events like Paul Masterton does always cos he is millionaire.

Please vote if the rule should exist or no. Or if you have some other suggestion, thanks.

I agree

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.
