Poll on FWTT Elite Trophy Zhuhai - All players in!

Dear players

as announced at the end of last season, we decided to postpone the decision on how to run the FWTT Elite Trophy Zhuhai. Now it's everyones turn to vote on how you would like to see the Elite Trophy Zhuhai run in FWTT.

Before I present you the options, I would like to address that the Elite Trophy and the YEC are both prestigeous tournaments for the best players of the season. Last season, due to losing several players, basically everyone got to play the FWTT Elite Trophy and (at least in my opinion), that's not how it should be, as both tournaments are very special and a great ending to a great season. Therefore, we would like to give everyone a chance to vote on their preferred option:

1) 12 singles players in Round Robin, 6 doubles teams in Round Robin (like the WTA)
2) 8 singles players in Round Robin, 6 direct qualifiers and 2 Wild Cards chosen by the players council; no doubles
3) 8 singles players in Round Robin, 6 doubles teams in Round Robin
4) 8 singles players in Round Robin, no doubles

Best wishes

Steve

Personally, I like the second option the most and we used to do it for several years like that. It gives us a chance to honour these players, who joined the game in the middle of the season and showed promising results

Second option to me sounds the best but the no doubles isn't the greatest to me personally.

Re: Poll on FWTT Elite Trophy Zhuhai - All players in!

If there ends up being a tie (doubt there will be), will there be another poll on just the two options that tied?

I think we should redo the poll but only having option A and C

@S-T-E-V-E @Nikarock what is your thoughts?

I preferred the wta version when it was a tournament of champions - and you had to win a title to play... but I get that would be hard to get a full draw on FWTT 😬

I won't vote because I don't really have an opinion. .
