Re: 2013 PAW Managers Thread - all April tournaments available for picking

OK I'll add you for all tournaments you requested. We'll watch your management in Barcelona though. Your Sc.B. so to say

Re: 2013 PAW Managers Thread - all April tournaments available for picking

In Delray Beach (my first managing tournament) if the edit problem is not fixed I'll write at the beginning of the messages that are updated (picks, ranking, etc.) an advertisement or a note saying something like users should quote them in order to see if they are updated or not (because the edit problem shows an old version of the edit but if you quote the message you see the last edit version even if you didn't see it firstly in the message) and always check for last messages in the thread.

It is an annoying bug, hope it will be fixed soon

Re: 2013 PAW Managers Thread - April tournaments available for picking

OK. I think all players already know about that problem so posting SP and LT in new posts (not editing original post) works - I mean players learned to look for new manager's posts in the thread. I saw Rik. managing like that Sao Paulo this week and it was OK.
You can post in the original SP/LT posts links to the new posts with the SP/LT.

Re: 2013 PAW Managers Thread - April tournaments available for picking

Yes I agree. For the time being, it is sensible for the PAW Managers to post the original Scoring Points and League Tables into a new post after each update.

Somehow, I don't see this bug being fixed in the near term. It is interesting however that this bug does not appear to exist on TennisForum which uses virtually the same hosting platform as MTF.

Re: 2013 PAW Managers Thread - April tournaments available for picking

How do you consider the match of Haas-Lopez, with 0-0 no one point playing, win of Lopez. Is it considered as a withdrawal or a retirement? For me, on one point was playing so it is a withdrawal.. But I saw on the ATP/WTA application retirement.. I would like to have your opinion.

TT singles: - Rank 48 (03/17)
Title (1): Quito'17
Finals (7): Queens'16, Monte Carlo'15, CH Noumea'15, CH Sarasota'14, CH Buenos Aires'13, CH Mons'13, Fut Poitiers'13
TT doubles: - Rank 112 (03/17)
Titles (12): Acapulco'17 (w/ mahqz), CH Caltanissetta'15, CH Noumea'15, CH Este'14, CH Mohammedia'14, CH Mestre'14, CH Bordeaux'14, CH Shenzhen'14, CH Buenos-Aires'13, Fut Poitiers'13 , CH Caltanisseta'13, ATP Bogota (with Fickelgruber)
Final (7): 2017 - Buenos Aires'17, Marseilles'17 (w/ mahqz),

Re: 2013 PAW Managers Thread - April tournaments available for picking

I'm seeing here that this was considered to be a walkover, neither retirement nor withdrawal. In later rounds, withdrawals are considered as walkovers because no one(LL) can take the place of that player who withdraws after playing a match in earlier rounds.

Here is my opinion. As I'm seeing this was an walkover, no PAW player will get points and their picks can be replaced. Retirement term would've been applied if the match had started and Haas retired after that. In that case, players who have picked Lopez over Haas would've got the points.

So no points for those players who picked Haas-Lopez match and their picks can be replaced.

PAW Rules give very clear explanation to situations like that

"8. Would a PAW become invalid if a player withdrew from their match?

This depends:
> If the player withdrew before the match and not one single point was completed, the PAW would be invalid and players are allowed to make a replacement PAW.

> If the player withdrew from the match after at least one single points had been completed, the PAW would be valid."

PAW Rules

Re: 2013 PAW Managers Thread - April tournaments available for picking

Re: 2013 PAW Managers Thread - need managers for Houston & Estoril

There is no tournament in Belgrade this year, and in week 21 there is also a ATP tournament in Dusseldorf.

When I've done the schedule Belgrade was still on the ATP list and we never hold a PAW tournament for Dusseldorf probably because of its unusual (team) format. Have they changed its format or something?
