Byes in Masters Series events
by MattP (U1739863) 28 July 2008
Why are there byes in the first rounds of Masters Series events? If someone could explain this i'd be grateful (if there is a reason tha is). I just find this really puzzling. Why should the top seeds be given byes to start off the event? I assume this is to reduce the number of matches in the whole event and basically means the first round is just a qualifing round in effect. I just think that this puts all non seeded players at a disadvantage and protects the seeds and atheir rankings.
