indeed... the women's tour actually does offer that, one facet of that tour that i always had me wondereding why the atp didnt copy - seeing as though you want to encourage higher quality fields at your showpiece events...

when they changed the points weighting, i dont think there was much research into what the changes would do... it seemed more like: ok, we're having a facelift, the gold and silver colours are nice, not sure how it'll affect the rankings tho... dusn matter, cos it looks ace
