Oct 31st, 2011, 02:05 AM
The following ten players are required to compete in 10 WTA tournaments in 2013 (all 4 Premier Mandatory, 4 of the 5 Premier 5 and 2 Premier 700) in addition to the 4 Grand Slams and the YEC if they qualify ... they will receive a "0" if they withdraw from any of these commitment tournaments

They are also required to compete in any Premier 5 that they did not commit to in 2012 (if they were on the Bonus Pool List in 2011)

They are also only allowed to play 2 MM tournaments in 2012 (too bad for Sara, Aga :hug:, who complained about this restriction before - but I am sure she won't mind the money :p)

Also, maximum of two of the top six players on the list are allowed to play in a Premier 470 tournament :secret: otherwise the tournament will have to raise prize money

The bonus list should be a VIP List.
Any tournament director would rather have Serena or Kim than any on the current top 10 (except for Sharapova).

I think the list is fine but I hate it when players show up at events and play one match just so they can say they "played" the tournament in order to keep their fat paycheck ... examples: Radwanska Tokyo Beijing 2009 ... Azarenka Madrid 2010 / Beijing 2011 :facepalm:

My thoughts exactly. In fact, she hasn't played an MM event since Linz 2009.

This is a rich get richer situation.
WTA should raise prizemoney, especially at Int'ls.
Comparing the money list for WTA, ATP, and golf, the golfers outside the top 10 make a ton more money than tennis players.
Players outside the top 40 really need increased early round prizemoney

Agreed.. Its really screwed up.. Small ATP tournaments have much bigger paycheck than a MM event.. Wta should really focus on getting prize money increased overall. Starting from grassroot level.

these 10 players don't have to do that much work with planning their schedules ... all they have to ask themselves is

1) Do I want to play all five Premier 5 this year and if not, which one do I not want to play?
2) Which two Premier 470 do I want to play?

and boom that 6-7 tournaments, plus 4 Premier Mandatory, plus 4 Grand Slams, plus Olympics, plus YEC and that is already 16-17 events :haha:

of course Bartoli has room to add another 10 events but for the rest of them that is enough for the year :oh:

well, and they can decide whether they want to play a MM and if yes, which one before Wimbledon and which one after Wimbledon. :p

Yes but if that's the case the player ranked #11 must do all the commitments in Serena's place. Not sure if #11 gets the restriction to play only 2 MM events, Marion would probably love to have both commitments (and thus bonus money) and get play several MM tourneys.:)

Players who are 30 years of age as of January 1, may elect not to be designated as a Top 10 Player. Such player is still required to play four Premier Mandatory Tournaments (if she qualifies by ranking), but will not be subject to the Top 10 Player rules and obviously will not get any player commitment bonus.
