too many byes as usual.. if they want to protect players who have played deep the previous week, the simple solution would be to provide byes only to those who have played the finals of a wta event the previous week, rather than by ranking..too many young, unranked players are probably being kept out by these byes..

Young unranked players aren`t getting into a WTA 1000 event without a wildcard.

this court looks about 10% slower than Abu Dhabi.. good for powerful hitters and Swiatek..not so Sloane, Leylah etc. We shall see..

"I think she’s OK. I think the (slow) court in Doha won’t be great for her because she doesn’t create her own speed. Maybe in Dubai it will be a little faster." Navratilova agrees with me about the court at Doha.
Her comment was on Vondrousova.. though I dont agre with her that a slow court is bad for Vondrousova.. her game, with all that spin and angles, works well on slow courts..
