I think from what I read on the rules because they have increased prizemoney they can have 4?? not 100% on that though!

Yeah you're right. Just had a look on the Channel 7 website for the video on that piece of news.

Should be a great line-up with the Top 3 in the world along with Stosur :) provided they all stay healthy.

well my understanding is they all can . .but they won't (money is a bit low I imagine) without the williams sisters there though it makes the competition a little bit of a farce.

I don't think 1 mil is enough to get all the Top 6 here unless it's oversubscribed.

kundalini

I don't think 1 mil is enough to get all the Top 6 here unless it's oversubscribed.

I've just read the relevant section of the WTA rule book for 2012 and I still don't understand what is going to happen. Last year Sydney had 5 out of the top 6 and 8 out of the top 10 despite being a $637K.

Jorn
Nov 20th, 2012, 02:39 PM

Nov 20th, 2012, 10:46 PM
well done brisbane.... I guess Errani and Kerber didn't want to use their International event this week....
I rekcon Sydney will be pretty bad this year. Sharapova never plays and reckon Serena and Azarenka will give it a miss. Radwanska not a certainty.
It will still probs have Stosur, Li, Errani, Kerber(maybe return to Hobart using her Int.), Wozniaki

But without the big 3, Sernea, Venus& Sharpova will lose its lust

flareon
Nov 20th, 2012, 11:03 PM
Wow what a list, Serena will play she loves Brisbane :lol:

coolfish1103
Nov 21st, 2012, 01:27 AM
So it will be an oversubscribed event.

Jorn
Nov 21st, 2012, 01:37 AM
What does "oversubscribed event" mean, they need pay more money?


Stuttgart is also always so oversubscribed...

Jorn
Nov 21st, 2012, 01:41 AM
Btw, Do we know who else will play?


My guess Kirilenko plays...

Tully
Nov 21st, 2012, 08:26 AM
Hantuchova is also returning.

I hope Kirilenko & Safarova play too.

I am going to 5 sessions - I am looking forward to it :D

coolfish1103
Nov 21st, 2012, 10:32 AM
What does "oversubscribed event" mean, they need pay more money?


Stuttgart is also always so oversubscribed...

1 mil = 3 of Top 6, right now there's 5 of Top 6 committed.

From now till Qualification sign-ins, players may opt-out of Brisbane, Brisbane may raise their money, or the tournament becomes oversubscribed.

e. Premier 700 Opt-Out Opportunity

If a Tournament does not agree to increase its prize money to the required level, the WTA will offer the Top 6 Players who committed to the Tournament the opportunity to “opt out” of their commitment starting from the bottom of the Top 6 Player List, subject to the following rules and procedures:

i. Top 6 Players may only “opt out” up until the Tournament has its allowable Top 6 Players based on its prize money.

ii. If a Top 6 Player elects to “opt out” of a Premier 700 Tournament, she will have fulfilled her commitment to the Premier 700 Tournament. Therefore, a withdrawal or ranking penalty will not apply, and the player will continue to be eligible to play her allotment of International Tournaments. A Top 6 Player who “opts out” of a Premier 700 Tournament will not be eligible to earn her Premier 700 Bonus Pool monies.

iii. A Top 6 Player who “opts out” will be given the priority to add an additional Premier 700 Tournament which does not have Player Commitment and will be eligible for Incentive Money.

f. Oversubscribed Premier 700 Tournaments

If not enough Top 6 Players select the option to “opt out” of a Tournament that has more than the allowable number of Top 6 Players per its prize money, the Premier 700 Tournament will be an “over-subscribed” Tournament, and all Top 6 Players who committed to play the Tournament as a Premier 700 Commitment Tournament, will be allowed to play subject to the following provisions:

i. If a Top 6 Player withdraws from an “over-subscribed” Premier 700 event, the withdrawal fine will be $25,000 (same withdrawal fine for all Top 6 Players).

ii. A Tournament will not be deemed hereunder as “over-subscribed” if by the 4 p.m. Qualifying Sign in deadline, the Tournament has raised its prize money to the required level, or if Top 6 Players have withdrawn and the Tournament receives the allowable number of Top 6 Players based on its prize money.

iii. If a Top 6 Player withdraws from one or more subsequent Premier 5 or Premier Mandatory Commitment Tournaments in the Related Swing of Tournaments, the player will have the ability to avoid suspension by selecting Option 1 or Option 2 under the Suspension Rule and performing her ACES; however, in lieu of the standard Late Withdrawal fine, such player will receive an automatic $50,000 fine which may not be eliminated and will revert to the first affected Tournament in the Related Swing as additional Bonus Pool compensation. The “Related Swing” means Premier Tournaments immediately following a Premier 700 Tournament. For example, the Related Swing for the Stuttgart Premier 700 includes the Madrid/Rome events and the Related Swing for the Stanford and Carlsbad Premier 700s includes the Montreal/Cincinnati events. In addition, any such Premier 5 or Premier Mandatory Tournament that loses Player Commitment due to a withdrawal from a Top 6 Player who competed in an “over-subscribed” Premier 700 Tournament as one of her Commitment Tournaments in the Related Swing, will receive an additional Bonus Pool payment to be determined by the WTA.

iv. If a withdrawal under sub-Section iii above is due to a Long Term Injury as defined in the Suspension Rule, such player will not be subject to the automatic $50,000 fine.

v. For a Premier 700 Tournament that is not “over-subscribed” these provisions do not apply.

g. Additional Top 6 Premier Player List Entries at “Over-Subscribed” Premier 700 Events

i. If an “over-subscribed” Premier 700 Tournament receives additional Non-Commitment Top 6 Player List entries (after the Player Commitment Deadline), in order for such player to be accepted into the Tournament, the Tournament will be required to increase its prize money to the required level in accordance with the Premier 700 Prize Money Policy.

ii. If an “over-subscribed” Premier 700 Tournament receives a withdrawal from a Top 6 Player who is committed to the event as one (1) of her two (2) Commitment Tournaments, and an additional Top 6 Player would like to play the event, the Tournament must pay the required next level of increased prize money. Tournaments cannot replace “over-subscribed” players who withdraw without increasing prize money.

Good morning! I have a question for anyone who might be attending this tournament - I have a ticket for a night session at Pat Rafter Arena and the website says this also grants access to all outside courts. Is this for the whole tournament like the regular $16.90 grounds pass or only for that specific session at Pat Rafter Arena?

Thanks kindly!

When you buy a Pat Rafter ticket you have access to every match and court. If you dont buy a Pat Rater ticket you cant go in the stadium but can see everything else. Inless its changed from last year thats how it is. But at night sessions the outside court action is dim, you have to buy another ticket to see the day session if yours is a night. Hope that answers it :)

Okay, I have a single night session ticket so it sounds like I'll have to buy a separate grounds pass if I want to come back the next day to check out some more matches on the outer courts... do the Ground Passes sell out? Or do you think I can just pick one up for the next day when I come for the night session?

Also, I'm planning to head down to Gold Coast after attending the tournament... the website says the ticket can be used for free transit on Queensland Rail to/from the tournament... does this only apply within Brisbane or could I ride all the way down to Varsity Lakes if I present my ticket to the conductor?



Thanks for your help :cool:

Yes you'd have to buy a separate grounds pass for the following day, and as far as I'm aware they've never sold out so you could get one when you come for the night session the day before.

The ticket is only valid for free public transport the day of the session you're going to, not any days after it.

Can anyone tell why the Sydney tournament has published the Qualifying acceptance list
and Brisbane is keeping it a secret? This does not make any sense since the Tournament Officials have this information on hand and publishing it will enhance the interest in
the event. Then, go and figure the Officials reasons......

Don't use those services. The non-official services like AccuWeather, Google, etc. have no idea. They appear to just make the forecasts up.

Use the official source - http://www.bom.gov.au/qld/forecasts/brisbane.shtml

Have several weather apps on my phone. 1 app (an Aussie made app) use BOM weather. Others use AccuWeather, Google, etc. - forecast temperature is always different to the other services. And the forcast (rain, showers, etc.) differ often as well.
