Dunno how Milwaukee got to be included in singles. Because former lineups aren't that competitive. It's not really comparable to other tournaments included, at all.  So is this a political move: have no idea. Maybe it benefited from the 64 player field expansion?
It might get better players from now on, since it's now included for the Fall National. The very best will play at Malibu, either way(Oracle Masters).
And about the Regional, 24? Are they including both finalists, not only winners? Because it's still 12 Regionals, same as before?
