Default Wildcards Into Tennis Masters Cup

Every year, the Top 8 players qualify for the main TMC tournament at the end of the year while the other players are given the option of playing the side TMC tournament. This year, there's a chance that our defending champion and/or RG champion will not qualify for the TMC so I need your opinions on whether to give out WCs and if so, how many.

Only votes from PTS players will be considered.

Please vote wisely!

I voted for the option which gets Prabu in, it would be harsh considering he's won the last 2 apparently.

I'd quite like a WC myself but it's not gonna happen

This needs to be looked into since the results were so close.

Damn I was away so couldn't vote

But clearly the defending champ must be granted a WC, especially when that individual is going for a 3-peat

Cheque is in the mail, or would you prefer a wire transfer?

But most people voted against it.

I mean 7/14 voted for an option that included a WC for the top-ranked GS champion so that can be negotiated. On the other hand, 4/14 voted for an option that included a WC for the defending champion...

Nothing against Prabu, but if I miss out because he gets a wildcard in, I will be one pissed off man considering how far I've come this year. I deserve to be there.

However, if it results in me not being kicked out, then yes, Prabu can get a wildcard.

So has there been a decision on this WC situation yet?

I'm going to try very hard to win Basel and Paris so I maybe won't have to rely on a WC But as you said there were 7/14 people voting for the top ranked GS winner so I'm hopeful!!!

The crowds want BG there and not the likes of Bolar.

It's almost like asking whether someone wants Gonzalez or Robredo in the TMC.

But the majority didn't vote for him in the poll

We've decided to award a WC to Peta Pan because 1) she's the RG champion, 2) a similar WC system exists for the actual TMC and 3) she's really not that far away from #8 in the Race.
