I'm assuming that it was my answer that is the 2nd answer because the answer I submitted works but it doesn't work now that you've added south american.

I can't find a southamerican player that works now though

Question about 14. That 2 tournaments in a row, that's 2 tournaments in a row for the that player right? Not 2 tournaments in a row for the #1, and #2?

The question was changed to "South American", so that's 2 tournaments in a row for 1 and 2.

It took some time having to go through the first few and realize they were not right, but when I got to Nottingham I saw a post about people talking about 3 matches in 1 day by Matosevic. Took maybe 20 minutes.

I remembered that happening this year but couldn't remember the player but remembered it was talked about on MTF so that's why I searched here

Yeah but the non south american answer still stands Hidalgo said.

It makes more sense though for it to be back to back tournaments that the player in question has played not the top 2 players as they sometimes play different optional events.

So for instance say Giraldo beat Fed, and Nole this year in RG and Wimbledon he would work even if Fed played Halle, but say if he done it in Cincy and US Open but played Winston Salem inbetween then it doesn't work because he played a tournament inbetween so he didn't beat 1, and 2 in 2 straight tournaments for him.

That's the way the question makes most sense to me

I know, the other answer was clearly back-to-back without South American added to question. Not a well-designed question, but if both answers will be accepted, it's okay I guess.

The first round scores of Nixer/Cheeky Chick only apply to each other in their first round match, and have nothing to do with the second round. If Nixer lost the 1R his 2R picks will not apply for singles because he will be out of the singles event.

It is now early morning in Leo's timezone - so when he's next online, it will be up to him to decide how to sort out how to proceed with the winner of Nixer/Cheeky Chick.
One other option might work....

If there are missing picks from anyone, flip a coin and move one of us to that place!!

The opponent is expecting a match, so that gives them one.

Shame to waste all this hard work

Well, the chance of someone not sending on day 2 is low, but I guess that's the best solution we can have.

1. it is good decision. I PM some hours ago to Nixer and to ADeyC about this idea. But if all players will send we can have, for example, 3 questions of tiebreak with questions of QF (or separately)

2. I remembered about situation with this South american player( question №14) when i red an article in internet. But i did not check this (as usually). So we can cancel this question

TT singles: highest ranking - 1, Titles (10)
TT doubles: highest ranking - 33, Titles (10)
SUICIDE: highest ranking - 1, Titles (7)
FITD: highest ranking - 7, Titles (2)
DTT(S/D): Titles (1/1)
PAW: Titles (4)

You should have just changed the correct answer to the Russian one South American is technically incorrect if you meant 2 in a row for him, not 1 and 2.
