It´s an attempt to force the tournaments to pay $$$ if they want to have more top players.

International tournament can (theoretically) have every top 10 player, but it would cost 2,5 millions in prize money.

It is because of vulturing. that is the only reason for it to prevent players from playing International events and to perform well on big events.

Wrong, it has nothing to do with Wozniacki. The new rules(called Roadmap http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-A...oadmap2009.pdf ) started in 2009 , Wozniacki finished 2008 #14. So the top 10 rule didn't apply to her in 2009 like it didn't happen to Errani this year.

At the same time Errani has 5 International tournaments in her ranking with you take out 3 of them she will still be ranked higher than Bartoli

Even if they could, not all top player would play Internationals, and WTA knows this. (This "vulture" mantra really went too far in people's mind.)

But they want to protect higher category tournaments and the hierarchy, thats all.
