IMPORTANT: It needs to go!

This Grand Slam winner WC into the Master has to go, its so against everything PAW should be about.

Basically my main reason against it is that if you can't get into the top 16 (which requires around 1600 pts) when you already have 1000 mandatory tournament points on the board, then you either dont play many tournaments at all or you just had a lucky grand slam.

Either way, you shouldnt be in the tournament which hosts the top rated, most consistent PAW players.

Let me know what you think, i have loads of other reasons against this which ill write for you if you want, i think this one alone should be enough though.

Re: IMPORTANT: It needs to go!

I fully agree. If we used the actual ATP rules (i.e. only 8 players in the Masters Cup) I wouldn't have any problem with that but someone who doesn't reach the top 16 despite winning a slam really shouldn't play the Masters Cup.

my tentative TT schedule
Monte Carlo (w/ TankingTheSet), Madrid (w/ Evita), Rome (w/ Gallina), French Open (/w Nando_L), Wimbledon (w/ Evita)
