Tournaments can still be added. But I would not expect many more to be added. (If any at all)

Most in China. Good for them, but I want some in Europe and NA!

I like how all those new 125ks have useless Top 50 WCs because pretty much no one can use it due to the new rules. We will just have a bunch of random Chinese or South American players roaming through the tournament and earn 160 points.

There are no "emerging markets" in Europe. And with all these restrictions, it makes a very little sense to have this instead of 100k ITF. As long you don't care about being a "WTA" tournament.

:lol: I said that on a Taiwanese BBS and I was pretty much scolded that I didn't bring $ or put time into hosting the tournaments so I should shut up. ITF 100k has way less restrictions and easier to manage than WTA. 10 points, big whoop.

Are the WTA counting this joke tournaments as titles still??? The WTA's feud with the ITF is ridiculous like these 100k replacements.
