Barbora got 500 points for her win of the AO.
Last year GS winners got only 250.
BTW, the runner-up (Maria) got the same 180 points as the runner-up of the last year. Any info?

they have given Slams an extra 250 pts instead of as it was previously when if you won 3 Grade A titles you got the 250 bonus
But only Slams and Orange Bowl of the 9 Grade A events attract the very best fields so more were given starting in 2002.

yeah, but only to the winner? that seems strange. Maria had to work hard too to get to the final, but she gets the same stinky 180 points :o :mad: :fiery: ............
i wish Maria won it. She'd be in the top 5.

i know it sucks
they should have doubled points in slams all around.

I don't like this idea personally, seems a bit unfair that the winner alone gets a very large increase in points while the others get the same...How's that going to help make much of a stronger field if only 1 person benefits in the end?
I think they should increase all the round points, and not double it, but maybe up it by a quarter (ie: winner gets 375, finalist 270, etc.)
