View Full Version : Why I think so many top players aren't here

A lot of people have pointed out that the reduction from 16 to 8 WTA Championship berths is one of the reasons why so many players aren't here, but I think there is another reason.

I think the new WTA Championship format is grueling (5 matches in 6 days) and a lot of players probably wanted to be rested for it. I think since everyone will be playing 3-5 matches they want to be sharp for this tournament.
