Exactly what the title asks, should we extend the number of qualifiers for the YEC? :p

At the moment we have 8 qualifiers, just like on the WTA tour, but this year we've had almost 200 posters playing FITD. So, because this is a very popular game would you like to see the number of qualifiers extended to 16?

The poll will be open for 5 days!

I think going to 16 is a great idea.

Well, if it were 16 qualifiers I would have a chance to play, but I voted for 8 and here's why:

Even though 200 people played this year, less than half of that number play regularly, and even fewer play every week. Unless your picks are ridiculous, if you play every week you have a good shot at being at least around #40 just from sheer volume of events. I haven't done that well this year and missed several weeks, but I am at #14 right now and I think higher in the new ranks. Limiting it to the top 8 really does emphasize that these are the best players, not just the ones who played the most.

I'm not too passionate about this argument I just made, and it looks like I'm losing in the poll. I just thought I would present the opposing opinion. Obviously I will have no problem with playing the YEC should I qualify in the top 16.

Well obviously there will be more votes for 16, because that gives the people not in the top 8, the other 192 people the chance to get in:lol:
I voted 8:p

That's very true :lol: Although cos there are less point available now it's going to be hard for someone outside the top 20 to get in I think, unless they go on a big streak :p

Well 14 votes to 3 is a bit clear so top 16 it is ;)

Rankings out later today :)

doubles YEC will have 8 spots this year, instead of 4 like last year.
