if YEC was top 16 (like before), then you have the top 8, plus Zvonareva, Radwanska, Pennetta, Bartoli, Stosur, Sharapova, Li and Clijsters qualify

it will be single elimination, with the top 4 matching up against 13-16 (Stosur, Sharapova, Li, Clijsters) 1R ... probably in this case Goatfina, Wozniacki may be eliminated early with one match played :spit:

now that we have SEC Bali

I prefer 8 players, but if no Bali event, 16 is ideal ;)

I didn't like the round robin.
But now there's so much money and points all year, this YEC is no big deal.
A player can lose all 3 matches and it means nothing to them.

There's no perfect way. Some players are mentally finished, so if you played 1-16, they would be 1 and done.

Top eight with round robin format because it's different from the other tournaments and is more like the definitive showdown of the main players of the past season. Top sixteen waters is down too much and makes it look like a poor man's slam event.

Actually its just a Slam event without the scrubs ranked 17-108 :shrug:

I love the YEC how it is now. Better matchups and the race is far more exciting. I do however wish the doubles was the top 8 teams like the Men's is.

I like the idea that the doubles have 6 instead of 4 or 8 teams. They will split into 2 round-robin groups. :kiss:

I like the YEC as it is. The RR part is good to see the players guaranteed three matches.

The RR has less on the line. For me, of all the YECs, 2004 was the only one were the players put their all into every match. Remember Serena, Myksina, and Lindsay all 2-1? Then we had two amazing SFs between Sharapova/Myskina and Mauresmo/Serena.

There is less urgency for the players and more pullouts. If the field were knockout, there would be more desperation from the players and higher quality matches. They would know there is no tomorrow. Top 16 also allows players who are in recent form to qualify. Take Venus for example, she hasn't done anything since Wimbledon but comfortably qualifies over someone like Jankovic or Clijsters.

I don't know which is better but what I know is that there should be 8 teams in the doubles YEC ...

Top 8 Because More Prestige Event and More Exiting Race

I like this current format better, because you get great matches between top players, like last year, that semi-final match between Jankovic and Williams, they had some amazing rallies going on!

It should be the TOP 10, and 2 WC's (like, Sharapova and Clijsters?) Split into 4 RR groups of 3 player.

A: 1-5-9
B: 2-6-10
C: 3-7-WC
D: 4-8-WC

5-10 + WC's (in bold) are chosen at random as to which group they go on.


SF 1: Winner of A vs Winner of D
SF 2: Winner of B vs Winner of C

Not if they got to play Li in their first round. :drive:
