Tournaments can still be added. But I would not expect many more to be added. (If any at all)

I like how all those new 125ks have useless Top 50 WCs because pretty much no one can use it due to the new rules. We will just have a bunch of random Chinese or South American players roaming through the tournament and earn 160 points.

There are no "emerging markets" in Europe. And with all these restrictions, it makes a very little sense to have this instead of 100k ITF. As long you don't care about being a "WTA" tournament.

:lol: I said that on a Taiwanese BBS and I was pretty much scolded that I didn't bring $ or put time into hosting the tournaments so I should shut up. ITF 100k has way less restrictions and easier to manage than WTA. 10 points, big whoop.

Are the WTA counting this joke tournaments as titles still??? The WTA's feud with the ITF is ridiculous like these 100k replacements.
yes, i think mladenovic's win counted as her maiden title :eek:
Same for Svitolina :eek:
I agree with you, this is so childish of WTA to have these, and they are weaker than the real 100K - which by the way get no mention at a player's resume on their site other than "continued to play on the ITF tour", unlike making R2 at an international for instance.

Meelis, if it was decided that this innovation deserve its own sub-forum after all, could you please move in here the two from last year as well?

looks like it will be counted as WTA title since Elina and mladenovic's profile on WTA HP show's 1 title...:confused:

not sure if it's official or not but we do have Premire and Internationals but we don't separate them when we count WTA titles so maybe 125 too??
