Olympics ranking points: Tier II+ or Tier I-

Here's the points players can earn at the Olympics:

Win: 248
Final: 174
3rd:122
4th: 94
QF: 62
R16: 34
R32: 20
R64: 1


So, it's worth more than a Tier II but less than a Tier I.

The winner should get about the same points as a Tier I winner since there are more rounds, so probably more quality points to earn!

Why do you think so?
I think it's great of WTA to have decided to change this time around.
It motivates more top players to play it doesn it?

I'm also skeptical towards awarding points.
For those who love to be at the Olympics and play there, it won't matter whether there are points or not, they will play.
And for those who aren't motivated to play, this won't change much either, especially if it's "less worth than a tier I".

Not awarding points would make the Olympics something special.

You're right.
That's why I don't think the top players in generaly really don't give a crap about the event. No wonder tennis is treated so unimportantly during the fornight!

Good info. Why shouldn't it be recognised in some way for ranking points? It's not an exhibition or something.

I think it's a good idea to give some WTA points, so that the players won't say they can't come to the Olympics because they have some point to defend and can't afford to lose them!

I don't know yet about who will come, but this should be an interesting competition. At least we know that Justine will play, and probably Venus will try to defend her title!
Kim Clijsters committed to Cincinatti (Tier III), well I don't understand her decision not to play the Olympics because of her sponsor, this is bs

Anybody else knows who will be there?

Personally, I think players should play out of respect for their country *and* out of the desire to say "I won the Olympics." If that's not enough for them, then they can take their greedy asses to one of the other events.
