... your opponent retires after missing the very first serve of the match ?
Or if the first point is an overrule and has to be replayed but your opponent has to retire ?
Or if your opponent faints while preparing to serve for the first point ?

And yes, this is a VERY important question. :angel:

Yes, as long as the opponent steps on the court to play...

You have more than 3000 posts on wtaworld and you don't know what bonus points are?
Nope, can you tell me?

When does a match officially start...? After the first serve or when players enter the court?
That's basically my question, yes. ;)

When you beat a player, you get bonus points. It depends of your opponent ranking. The higher she is ranked, the more bonus points you get. So for the ranking, other than points for reaching a certain round (2nd, 1/4, final, ...) you also get bonus points at each round for players you beat.

No, I want to know what Bonus Points are! Those are quality points, not bonus points!

Oh...Bonus points...? You get those when you buy petrol. You can swap them for glassware or a box of Quality Street.

Don't roll your eyes at me. Bonus points makes it sound like these players are getting free points. These are QUALITY points. Thanks. :wavey:

Bonus points = quality points. Both terms have the same meaning. There is no difference between bonus points and quality points, because it's the same thing.

Same thing with different connotations. :shrug:
