I used to strongly feel quality points were necessary... especially in the women's game where beating a top player used to mean something... nowadays, bleh. It only causes problems in the rankings (i.e. Garbin beating a sick Henin-Hardenne at RG, and earning more points by losing in the 3R, then most QF's earned).
The men's game has too much depth, and too many surface specialists for it to work, IMO.
I'd love to hear yours.
It is a good idea.. but I don't think they should. It doesnt operate in many other sports, and I think a win's a win.
