Hi people, here are some ETA NEWS

*Draws for Goldcoast/Auckland will be up morrow after the Sanex/Volvo semifinal results are posted

*You can find the ETA thread in the Goldcoast thread. The Auckland tournament will also be in the Goldcoast thread! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

*I have decided against using new special surface points for the time being. Even before we used them, I could tell there would be a problem with them. I will continue to think of other ways to make the game more realistic.

*The following players have earned WILDCARDS into Goldcoast:<br />Daniela Hantuchova (Aussie WC)<br />Patty Schnyder (Former Champion WC)<br />Pam Shriver (Improving Player WC)

The fourth WC will go to the winner of the Volvo Women's Open.

*QUALITY POINTS will begin with the new season! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

These are how WILDCARDS are decided usually:

1st WC Defending Champion/Previous Champion<br />2nd WC Country<br />3rd WC Lower Tier Event Champion<br />4th WC Improving Player

In the case for Adidas, there are two WCs for Lower Tier Events, and the other one is the Aussie WC. So I had to decide between giving the 4th WC to a defending champion or an improving player.

Sabatini, Zvereva, Davenport, if awarded the WC, would be playing in the event without their doubles partners. Shriver has earned a fair share of WCs so far, so she might be relegated to the lower tier event. I won't decide who the 4th WC goes to until next week.

Cris has a chance to earn a WC at the Tokyo Pan Pacific, the Asian WC. Right now there is only one Asian WC. You and Su-Wei Hsieh are competing for that WC, but I think I'll offer two Asian WCs, meaning that both of you would get in! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
