Nobody in their right mind cares about doubles, though

And I completely agree that it needs to become 8. It doesn't even need to be Round Robin. Can just be knockout. Stretch it out across the week. Thursday - 2 matches. Friday - 2 matches. Saturday - SFs. Sunday - Final. Singles starts Tuesday and Doubles starts Thursday. I mean 690 points for showing up? 1050 points for winning one match? 1500 for winning 2 matches? Give me a break.
Agree completely. In the current format, they need to reduce the points by half at least or more. 345 for SF, 525 for F and 750 for the champion.

I totally agree.

690 points for making the flight. It really adds a HUGE amount of points to a team that barely qualifies over the #5 team for not much extra work.

That's not true. Most people who watch tennis on television are also club-level players like myself, and we play more doubles than singles.
