My opinion was, and still is, that only a pre-determined number of them should count in rankings - n best results - and that there should be no constraints regarding which ones the players decide to attend.
The rationale behind my opinion is that it's too costly for many low ranked players to attend them all, especially those in Europe and also that it's far too much events over the year. No need to remind me ... I got enough stick about this.
Now here you go

"Depending on how I do in the main ranking events, I may miss the odd PTC event just to make sure I am not burned out for the big events."

“The past season has been a bit of a disaster for me and I think that I just tried to do too much and ended up paying for it.
“It was a long, hard season and I think my dip in form and dropping out of the top 16 was down to me playing too many tournaments and not really giving myself a break.
Both players, young, fit and have played in every PTC last season.
It's easy for armchair fans to rant about "mediocrity", "laziness" and whatever. It's another thing to actually do it, as anyone seeing the players close-up at some events will know.
