from : http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/news?slug=reu-menrotterdamdc&prov=reuters&type=lgns i know there are already several categories (international series, international series gold...) but he obviously wants to make a more obvious difference between big and small tournaments... does he wanna kill small tournaments ? i don't like his comparison with soccer. tennis is different. if a top player wanna play a small tournament because it fits in his schedule or because of any reason, he can and that's good for small tournaments. it's not like divisions in soccer (if he wants something that sounds like these divisions, challenger/future/satellite tours already exist).
