How do the points compare to points of other events? Is this equal to a Tier I in terms of points for winning, just currious?

No... it's slightly above the Top Tier II's like Filderstadt.

I think they should give more points. Maybe like a TIER I like Moscow or Tokyo...

I think it's wrong that the Olympics gives any points at all... but that argument is for another thread. :p

I actually like the idea of the Olympics awarding points. It's true that there shouldn't neccessarily be any extra motivation needed to get players to play, but the truth is tennis is such an international sport I'm glad they came up with a way to incorporate it more into the tour by giving points. I think they should even award more points, maybe even more than winning any one slam- afterall this is the olympics and you only get a shot at gold once every four years (and a lot can happen in four years as we all know).

I like the idea of awarding points because otherwise certain players would just skip it because it doesn't fit into their schedules.
