Someone should take the leading role and decide how many can play there? 8? 16? all comers?
and if only the top ranked players, by which ranking? Is there any current ranking in progress? (the champions race was not updated for a month or so, the entry ranking since August...)

Thanks for the ranking and I was wondering whether it was 8 or 16, as I came 17th I would be the first alternate if it came down to 16 players.

Decisions need to be made soon.

I can see as many as 4 players in the top 16 who haven't played for some time...

Hi

Has to be top 16 in my opinion.
WTA Paw is very successful,and they go on the top 16.

Btw,Im not just saying this because Im ranked No.11.Lol!

WTA used to have 16 players in the YEC until 2 years ago. They changed to 8-players format last year, but PAW decided to stay with 16...
ATP Masters was always 8 players.
It would be wierd to have 16 players in a tournament with only 6-8 getting ranking points.

Here's my suggestion...

Everyone can play, but only the top 8 ranked players are eligible for the ranking points.

8 i think ... less people play PAW ATP (you have over 120 people playing in the GS in PAW WTA)

i agree with jrm. if we had more people, then i think it should be 16. but since we only have around a quarter of the people, it should be 8
