I have seen people talking about Tier V before. Do Tier V tournaments exist? Are they WTA tournaments or ITF? I have never seen one before? Are Tier V another name for $75K ITF tournaments?

Can somebody please explain?

they cut it out, and yes the last few tierVs were in australia that couldn't organize to the new plans quiet on time.
forest hills wasn't a tierV because in comparsion it's exactly what you get for a tierIV

They're going to start having 100K challenger events next year, so they're pretty much bringing the Tier V back in a way (Tier IV's usually offered 110K in prize money).

Not true... there was only ever 1 tier 5 in Aus...that was Canberra which became a tier 4 when they got rid of tier 5's!
