Re: Should there be a bonus for beating the no.1 player?
In this age where Federer is a strong favourite for most of his matches, there may be a slight argument for this (although I am against it), but in the past it has been quite common that the number 1 wasn't dominating at all, and often got in a form slump losing a lot of matches, in which case it was more or less random luck for players to be able to get the bonus points. Suppose Federer had been injured for part of the season and Nadal would be number one, people would get bonus points every tournament for beating Nadal on hardcourts, that doesn't quite sound right.
