It would be an effective way to market the future stars. Eventually Slam Champions will emerge from the event giving it more credibility than this crappy MM YEC could ever have. People like to be right and brag about it, that´s why we all hype and predict. This is the perfect event for that.
It's an idea that sounds better in theory than in practice.
The line-up could easily end up being even worse than what we have already, and it would just be free points for players just because they're of a certain age. And since tennis doesn't have age divisions on the senior, then that would be hugely unfair.
