Post 256 Draws For Slams??

Should we increase the draw for slams?
I think it would be more intruiging and interesting if there were 64 seeds for slams and a 256 draw. So, the seeds meet each other in the 3rd round, as they do already, but there are more players.
Slams are the biggest tournaments, but Indian Wells and Miami have the same amount of rounds, so that kind of ruins them a bit.
It would make the slams even more important and prestigious than they are atm. It would take an amazing player to win them, and that's why I think they should do 256 draws.

I think that would be a good idea and it could be an exciting, interesting way to do slams...

Anyone agree?

Discuss...

Re: 256 Draws For Slams??

disagree, that would be FAR TOOO LARGE, it would take too long and with that size tournament fitness may become more important than SKILL, I like it how it is now, although i can see your complaints with Grand slams/masters having same number of rounds

Re: 256 Draws For Slams??

No.

All of a sudden we would have 3 week slams... and muggish matches all over the place... just no.

Re: 256 Draws For Slams??

That would be an organisational nightmare. First round alone would easily take three to four days.

Re: 256 Draws For Slams??

Noooo, it would be scary. Players from 200 to 250 can't win QD match too.
And yeah, this at most seven match is enough.

Never ever give up
