maybe she will play Pilot PEN...if she wins 1 match at the Pilot Pen that will equal almost the same amount of points for winning this whole tourney last year :lol: :eek: ;)

Official website: http://www.foresthillstennis.com/ :)

Remember, it's a 16 players Draw with NO doubles (75 000$) :)

why do the WTAtour allow this tourny?
honestly intrested, not bashing it.
just a funny tourny.
i understand it's an historical place... but can't it be "tierV" (none anymore) 110K or at least 100K?

It only has a 16 player draw, no singles qualifying, doubles, or doubles qualifying like the average tournament. This way having a prize money of 75k is likely equal to an 110k Tier V.

Auckland (Tier IV - 140k)
1st Rd S. Qualifying - 175 x 16 = 2,800
2nd Rd S. Qualifying - 300 x 8 = 2,400
3rd Rd S. Qualifying - 550 x 4 = 2,200

= 7,400

1st Rd D. Main Draw - 550 x 8 = 4,400
QF Rd D. Main Draw - 1,000 x 4 = 4,000
SF Rd D. Main Draw - 1,850 x 2 = 3,700
FINALIST D. Main Draw - 3,475 x 1 = 3,475
WINNER D. Main Draw - 6,500 x 1 = 6,500

= 21,775

1st Rd. S. Main Draw - 1,000 x 16 = 16,000

7,400 + 16,000 + 21,775

= 45, 175

140 - 45,175 = 94,825

Also, take into account those losing first round will obviously get less than having lost in the round of 16 in a Tier IV. Overall, it's pretty fair.

So the players that barely made it on the US Open entry list, or the players who are in slumps can actually have a chance at hard court practice. Most of the players that play here probably wouldn't qualify for the US Open Series events. Sorta like Cincy and Stolkholm, except it is a Tier V ;)

It actually took too long for WTA to realize that with no other tournament around that week New Haven qualies looked stronger than most of Tier IV/V...completely ridicolous

I'm a little disappointed with this tournament. Last year the director said that this year they would have 32 players, qualifying draw, and doubles. He lied :(

too true. In 2003 for instance, Farina Elia and Molik had to play qualifying.

wait.
i'm a bit slow - sorry
"so the players that barely made it on the US open entry list" meaning MD or qualifications?
"have a chance at hard court practice" - wasn't it supposed to be grass?
"most of the players that play here probably wouldn't qualify for the US Open Series events" so why promote a BAD tourny?
"sorta like Cincy and Stolkholm" - so why not really upgrade it to TierIV status?
It's so bizarre with the 16 draw, no qualies and such.
but I'm eager to get updated with this tourny - it seems special for me.

and what's bad with strong quallies? :confused:
I love the way the european indoor circuit requires top40 players to battle it out in the the quallies and top20 players meating in first round - it's great!
why weaken the field, and why weaken it in a way that only 16 players go for a tourny that isn't worth many points.

Aug 5th, 2005, 12:36 PM
oh - and thanks for the answers !
this really was a puzzle for me.
now i understand why it could be called TierIV and not 75K ITF...
and i know better who and why players go there in the first place :)
i hope it wil be a great tourny!

Forest Hills is like the "Tier IVs", Hobart and Canberra who's prize money is 110k, but it lacks the doubles, singles qualifying and a full round of play.

As well, Forest Hills as a venue does not have the seating capacity to have more than one hardcourt, hence they hold challengers. And the WTA will make more money if there are more tournaments, because this way the tournament fees will be paid to the WTA. And having a strong New Haven qualifying does not mean more money ;).

This might not be the field because all of the players put it under their "2nd priority commitment". If any player makes it into the main draw of New Haven (their 1st priority commitment) then they will be withdrawn from Forest Hills.

It means they are on the entry list for another event that week. And if they can get into that event, they'd rather play there than in Forest Hills.
