Am I right in thinking that:

Indian Wells and Miami - 96 player draw, with 32 byes.

Monte Carlo, Rome, Hamburg, Toronto and Cincy - 48 player draws with 8 byes

Madrid - 48 player draw with 16 byes

Paris - 32 player draw


I'm really confused, so if I've got this wrong, please correct me. Thanks.

If this is right I sure hope it changes. With this kind of reduction in the draw for 1000 events...how do top 100 players [those in the lower half]maintain or gain ranking points...this is rediculous if its true. The top players will remain on top if the lower ranking players aren't given an opportunity to play..Whats up at the ATP? I see fewer WC and qualifiers in the tournaments...less opportunity for advancement...are they trying to kill the game?

Quite true.

They just want the top 10 or so players that ATP can market and milk the $$$.
