the players are not motivated (no enough points for them!) to give their best in the matches that are not GS. And we have only 4 GS for the entire season!!
1000 points, hundreds of thousands of dollars and one of the second most presitigious level tournaments on the tour is not enough motivation? I think this might be a semi-valid argument if you were referring to 250 tournaments where the top players really do have limited motivation, but not MS.
Right. And the question now is: is that effort as twice as big as to win MS??
No. Are you suggesting that all tournaments should award roughly the same number of points then, because they all take roughly the same amount of effort to win? Players aim to win Slams for more reasons than points, you are never going to change the fact that there is a greater motivation to win there than at MS. I don't see someone like Nadal having too much trouble finding motivation to do well outside of Slams aswell though, because they are professionals, and they always want to win.
That's a wrong approach to the issue. You missed the point here. I was talking about ranking points and not the title. (?)
You're talking about motivation. Ranking points won't change this, and nor should they. Some tournaments are more important than others, period.
would you trade three MS titles for one GS??
Maybe I would. Maybe GSs should be three times the points then? This is speculative. What I asked is actually relevant.
thank you. You admittance is appreciated. Then do not try to compare Estoril with Monte Carlo.
Are you actually retarded? I'm not trying to compare them, and nor should anyone, just as you should not try to compare Monte Carlo with the French Open.
