The only difference between the ATP and WTA system is if you do enter a TMS but go out first round, you cannot discard your score for a better score in a ISG or IS, so you haven't given people all the info.
I am with you all the way with this DeccyB123. I see where you are coming from.
The closer we stick to the ATP with all aspects of Tennis Tipping the less issues will arise to be dealt with. Plus with any issues arising we will always have a point of reference with the ATP and no persons can say or think any favouritism has been shown in any way by managers.
We may not all agree with the ATP rules and ranking but it is there to see for all in black and white. I mean I missed the Australian Open so lost a big opportunity to gain substantial ranking points of upto 1000 points. Plus my wife is looking for us to go on holiday in the first week of the US Open. I know I have minimal chance of making the top 8 this season to get into the Masters Cup at the end of the year and that sucks.
But hey, its only a game, so who cares if you miss a few Grand slams. Just ask Mariano Puerta...
