I just read in a magazine that the ATP will star distributing ranking points for Davis Cup next year, due to an agreement with the ITF. Do you think the WTA will follow?

They shall!!! Great idea!!!

I hope so :D Give the lower ranked players a great chance :)

how is it going to work exactly ?

no.... next question

It will attract atleast players ranked between #30 and #50 to play more than in past. For TOP30 and especialy TOP10 players it not be enough to make FC more important or attractive than in near past.

I hope they don't

I hope they won't... first and foremost, it is not equal (girls whose countries perform badly at FC won't be able to earn points which could be earn by girls whose country reaches final)

Definitely no! It's stupid, full stop.

Yes, like Dima says the WTA steals everything good the ATP comes up with.

I'm not sure it's a good idea :scratch:
