How about moving Grand Slam qualy result threads out of GM?

I don't know about you guys, but I find it a bit annoying when all the threads on the 1st page of GM feature random unknown challenger players, ie "USO 1R Q: Adamczak d. Scheepers 63 62" with zero responses. By my calculations it's possible to put up 64 of these threads on the first day of qualies. Maybe they could go somewhere else other than GM? Just an idea.

Re: How about moving Grand Slam qualy result threads out of GM?

No! First of all they're not unknown second of all it makes no sense to move some results threads and not all. I'm fine with moving all, but moving some is senseless. As if it makes a difference that Adamczak plays Scheepers in qualies or main draw.

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies: Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

Some players that are playing qualifying have more fans, then some players that are in the MD.
Would be a stupid idea

Krajicek Bertens Wickmayer Jankovic Kerber Svitolina Hogenkamp de Vroome Flipkens Kerkhove Burger Rus Rezai Bacsinszky / Lena D. missing you

No!
I agree with Elwin
Compare Vaidisova with Hradecka for instance

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

We all agreed that we didn't want to make a difference between Qualies results and the other results, so they will remain in GM.

Thanks.
