don't roll your eyes, because YOU are the ignorant one in this situation. :)


The Gold and Silver exmpt lists give the most popular/best players cash bonuses etc. and allows them WC's into events. I'm pretty sure they do more, but I'n not sure what they are.


And no, I dont have them, sorry. ;)

well - i won't say the EXACT words but it means:
unlimited WC in singles and doubles
the WC is granted regardless of her ranking
late entry to tournies
no minnimum requirments from the tour.
it is given if the have:
3 GS/YEC
14 years of service on tour
#1 rank anytime of her career (yes steffi! come back!!! :lol:)
extended excelence and comittment on tour yadda yadda yadda

a "golden girl" doesn't count in contracts and such that concern the tournies and not the fans
golden girls lost the status when retiring (thus the steffi comment was a joke guys...)
OR injured for "a long term" meaning 6 consecutive weeks.

silver is basically simmular
30 top players not in gold after the US
two WC anywhere (this actually means that if say, AI would grant a WC to peer and dechy would like to play in the last second - good bye shahar)
there are 20 golden girls, i forgot to say.

basically it means you are walking cash for tournaments and so they give you EVRYTHING and in return they recieve $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
don't you love WTA?
there are more regulations and shit - but it doesn't really matter - basically, they are considered more by the WTA than an amazing player on a rise.
it means that jenny is more important to the WTA than sharapova, it means lindsay is GOD>pierce and it means ana ivanovic, vaidisova, peer, strycova, mirza combined < conchita as for all that the tour cares, the others in thier opinion can just die.
you DO understand that we love the sport but they love the money, right?
------------------------------------------
i'm sorry if this sounded really really harsh but i really feel that there are some really greedy people in the WTA that don't care for the fans.
i love tennis alot and put many hours into it.
they don't give a damn about us, when you read the rules that they give.
it's not so great for the players - i mean, if lindsay wanted to play a 10K tourny, NO ONE would say "no"... no one except the tour managers that say "play in RG or we kill ya!".
it makes me kinda depressed - actually.
for all they care, navratilova may not retire cuz she's good for the wallet.
bah - i'm bitter and hate it when things i love become a business.

it's something special just for monica or players who have achieved as much as she has (or close). basically, she isn't taking someone else's spot on the list because she may not come back and iuse the wildcards, but they're leaving it open for her in case she does decide to come back.

Kim chose not to be GE this year as she didn't want to make all the commitments and did not know if she could. But the WTA wanted to add her later in the year, so we will just have to wait to see if they do.

it's marketable players.
kim is no use for the wtatour if she's not playing - thus, she's out of the GE list.
they can't sell kim, so they throw her, now she's back so they want her to sell for them. bah, i just hate this thread - it really really upsets me.

You don't know what you are talking about, the wta wanted Kim on the list when they announced before the season began, Kim didn't want to be on the list but said maybe later, there is a difference. The wta just haven't said ok Kim now we will put you on our fabulous list to sell our tour.

i hate the trhead cuz it reminds me of how capatalist the fat hogs are up there in the wtatour.
it bugs me that for them, the worlds really is no more than 50 players tops.
it bothers me that people are making good money from using other peoples reputation.
i might not know what i'm talking about - but i do now that the gold and silver lists are pure curroption.

I am wondering who is silver, too....

but i do now that the gold and silver lists are pure curroption. I agree that the lists are pretty corrupted but I wouldn't say that them wanting to put Kim on the list reflects that because they wanted her there when they originally made the list, so they don't just want to sell her now she has had good results.

Do you honestly believe anything in this world doesn't rely on getting money to fund it?
