I'd like to see the WTA Championship final, along with Tier I finals and Grand Slam Finals, be best 3 out of 5 sets, not just 2 of 3.

More mixed doubles, and maybe have rankings. Mixed doubles is fun.

Make some rule making top 20 players play a certain number of doubles events. Regular doubles is fun too.

Make some extensive knowledge and verbal skills test for former players who wish to commentate. Tracy Austin is not fun.

Abolish the cap on how many tourneys younger players can play.

make a camera or a tv or wateve 4 the umpire to see the close calls
this is very important
so the players will shut up
sometimes
they argue something that is out
but SOMETIMES
and what serena did was correct
she deserved the point so much!!
argHH!!!!!

i agree, womens finals should be out of 4/5 sets. people like the williams sisters, davenport etc could cope with that

the season end should be joint with the mens...the womens attendances at the season end are shocking....it was aflop in munich...LA doesnt care..it should have stayed in new york....or be played in a major city in a different country each year but they to promote it more which if someone isnt a huge tennis fan they are not going to know aout it. the wta moan that players need to promote the sport more but wta need to promote the players for it to work.

tier 1 finals 3/5 sets.

NO--- dont let the umpires have instant repley tv's, this will take away the "ohh.was it in or not" and all the arguements between players and umpires, why people want to take away the only thing that attratcs people to watch the sport is beyond me!


join mens and womens championsips together...how grea would it be if both were in China this year. ....the chines are crazy tennis fans!!!

A lot more grass events!!! For mine, grass is the best surface! It's the most traditional!!! The players could be made to wear white at all grass events too.

Masters Series type events for Tier Is, which ALL top players are entered.
Get rid of byes.
Move YEC to rotating, non-already-tennis-tournament-having cities.
More marketing of the game and it's rivals, not just it's tennistas of the moment.

And my #1 thing:
Put commit/entry lists on WTATour.com website so all player's schedules can be known with easy reference. Make them available to the vox populi.
