I felt suddenly quite wildly happy.

So will they keep the ITF Ranking and award points to both?
ITF ranking points will be awarded in $15,000 and $25,000 qualifying rounds and a player’s ITF ranking will continue to be valid for acceptance purposes after WTA ranked players.
There will be no more ITF reserved places at 25k's any more.
Have they published a grid with the points ?
It’s good they’re keeping this at least, as it will be favoring players who actually win rounds in qualies (which was the main interest of the new system)... not sure how it makes sense to keep it in an apart ranking any longer though...
Also quite sad how little points they are giving for a 15k win, 12 points used to be ridiculous, 10 is even more stupid, that’s now 5 times less points as a 25k win and has many points as what a French scrub gets in Paris for receiving a WC and being trashed in the first round...
This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.
