RE: Entry Week 1 - 02/01/2023


Further to discussion above, not seen it posted elsewhere, but the 40k points are now available, and turn out to be pretty close to the 60k points. 25k points are unchanged.

Thanks jb. It was posted in the Prize Money thread in the General Section when mentioned in a tweet. Good to see it confirmed and tabulated if not good as an ongoing points distribution ( far too close with as you say 25Ks unchanged and 40Ks fitted into the gap ).

I wonder if the plan is that 60/100ks will be mostly +H, which would keep the gaps sensible

I'm not sure about there being any 'plan'.

I don't know how much liaison there is between the ITF and the WTA who award these WTA ranking points for both ITF and WTA tournaments. And I genuinely have doubts about how much the WTA are bothered about a sensible ITF ranking points progression ( and helping players make their tournanent choices ).

I do wish that they'ed jointly sort it out.

There are no 80+H or 100+H any more as hospitality is now mandatory at those levels.

Ah thanks Lambda. If 60ks went the same way I think we'd have a pretty logical progression.

Will be interesting to see how players approach entries. I suspect over time, given the points allocations, entry lists for 40 and 60ks will be pretty similar. If 25ks get weaker as a result, the points on offer there become even more generous. All of which suggests to me that players in the 275+ bracket are probably still better off focusing on 25ks.

 Digressing slightly, how much is hospitality worth compared to prizeMoney - what level of hotel would they get paid for? Presumably its quite a big chunk? Is it food and board or is travel included ?
