Time for a change?

So I see we get quick updates even from $10K in random places like Djibouti ar that South African city I had never heard from.

Isn't it time WTA gets serious about its ranking system and start counting $10K and $25K points for the following Monday after they get finished?? No excuses now, internet is fully available around the globe and I always found this rule a bit unprofessional having to wait 8 days for points to be added

The main point is for example is that the final might be washed-out by rain or some other circumstances so they don't have to wait with rankings until some random 10k or 25k comes to an end. I think that's good. 10k and 25k often don't have good conditions and facilities.

So it only may rain in $10K or $25K?

Re: Time for a change?

No, but there are more 10k and 25k than bigger ITFs so there is a bigger probability that play can be washed out.

Sorry, but your reason is not really that convincing

Re: Time for a change?

agreed. there's no reason not to have those points added the same week. plenty of 10ks even have live streaming at this point!

Re: Time for a change?

Agree
Given that the vast majority of events on the ITF Circuit now are 10Ks and 25Ks, its only fair that they put the points up instantly
I don't even get why they never put them up at the same time in the first place

Unfortunately, only the Antalya-Kaya Belek one have livestream

I agree, they should add points right way

Re: Time for a change?

Why not add them like regular >25K and if it's rained out just wait one more week like now?
