Re: Main Draw???

It was said a couple of years ago at the Gold Coast tournie that the top players didn't want the byes. They wanted the extra match play leading into Melbourne. Which is why they played here, so didn't want byes & missed match play. So the tournament organisers did what the players wanted. This was 2 or 3 years ago....

it think so
some torunament just try to attract higher ranked player with a bye for the top2 seeds, or even top4.
then she would just need 4 matches for the title
