Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Don't forget Iliya Bozoljac (some guy above me even posted a link to his match at Wimby).

About the 15/30/40, there are some different theories. Would be hard for me to explain it in english, but it could be related to the monetary system used at the time of the "jeu de paume".
Lol Federer actually served 50 aces in the final. Roddic hit 27.

Player A can challenge. I know there's a video of Roddick successfully doing it somewhere on Youtube (against Monfils?)

He can challenge but he wouldn't get replay of the first serve in any situation. If the serve was out, he would get a second serve.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Now Wimby and earlier this year AO had their finals finished under roof. Have there been any other GS finals played (partly) indoors?

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Why do they call it "let" when a serve hits the net and falls in the service box? Cause they'll "let" him do it again?

I always thought they were saying "net" which makes much more sense to me but recently I noticed they're saying "let".....

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

SQ about draws. Have I understood the draw system correctly?

#1 & #2 are on different halfs.
#3 & #4 are drawn to #1 & #2's halfs.
#5 to #8 are drawn to #1 to #4's quarters.
#9 to #16 are drawn to #1 to #8's eighths.
#17 to #32 are drawn to #1 to #16's sixteenths. I remember also reading somewhere #25 to #32 are drawn to #1 to #8 and's sixteenths and #17 to #24 are drawn to #9 to #16's sixteenths.

And, if a seeded player withdraws, #n takes the place of #n-1 in the draw with #33 taking the place of #32.

By the time it reaches the bolded part, I believe it gets totally random. I could be wrong though. But the rest of its seems correct.

If this happens pre draw then yes.

However there is odd protocol if if happens post draw.

When Nadal (#1 seed) withdrew from Wimby 2009, Federer (#2 seed) took his place in the draw, Del Potro (#5 seed) took Federer's place and if I remember correctly the next highest ranked unseeded player got Del Potro's draw.

I have no idea why that happened that way. I think what I said might not be 100% accurate but it was an odd way they patched the seeding up.

Mostly yes. As of what happen when a seed withdraw it depended which one and when


Complete rule and correct terminology

Thanks. So the system is:

#1 & #2 are on different halfs.
#3 & #4 are drawn to #1 & #2's halfs.
#5 to #8 are drawn to #1 to #4's quarters.
#13 to #16 are drawn to #1 to #4's eighths and #9 to #12 are drawn to #5 to #8's eighths.
#25 to #32 are drawn to #1 to #8's sixteenths and #17 to #24 are drawn to #9 to #16's sixteenths.

Anyway, my next even more stupid question is how do you say Masters in plural? Just Masters or Masterses? Or Masters events?

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

How do tournaments and tv networks decide which players' name goes on top and on the bottom when displaying the score? Is there a consistent metric?
