Right, because getting a reputation for winning only $10k's is so much worse than having a reputation for winning nothing at all. :p

In a few years time once Ellens backhand is upto standard you will see her playing on the Wta tour, she may not win any Wta tournaments but yes winning matches on the Wta tour is better than winning a 10k title.

You said nothing about winning matches on the WTA Tour...and still having a $10k title is better than having no title, whether you are winning matches on WTA Tour or not. :p

With the same way of thinking she will rather doesnt want to win a WTA event to win Grand Slam.

With the same way of thinking she will rather doesnt want to win a WTA event to win Grand Slam.

Thats where it changes, because I dont value Grand Slams with much higher importance than the YEC, Tier I's and Tier II's

But yes I do value a quarterfinal or better performance at a Grandslam better than winning the ASB Classic (Tier IV)
