October, DC and ATP clash

It's gonna be really interesting in October. Russia and most propably Sweden have to play relegation play-offs in group 1.

The funny part? It's gonna be played 18-20 October. It's very likely they will be home ties for both Sweden and Russia, and at the same time there will be ATP tournaments in Stockholm and Moscow. That's not good. Could the ITF consider changing the dates?

Why October?

Didn't they play those Europe playoff matches at the same time as the final last year?

Re: October, DC and ATP clash

That really sucks. Last year we had to play the relegation playoff without Nieminen as Jarkko was trying to defend his final points from Stockholm, his favourite event.

Why couldn't they just have it on the DC final weekend when there are no ATP events?

It really makes a huge difference for Britain that they managed to win yesterday because Murray probably would not have played this relegation play-off between Shanghai and Basel/Valencia, and they were very near from group II, and now they will play the play-offs to climb to world group, and it's very possible that Murray plays in september for that



yes, it looks like a nice position in the calendar, although players for those ties are more often challenger players, and there are still some challengers in that period.
yeah I know that with a lof of teams and fewer vyes it could work out that they have to play a 4th set to determine who gets relagated. I just thought that they did it at the same time as the final, but I was mistaken

Re: October, DC and ATP clash

I guess all this matter is only for Russia because she has BYE in the Group I 1st Round Play-off (13-15 September) and is in the 2nd round already (18-20 October). Sweden has to overcome Slovak Rep firstly (13-15 Sept). I'm not sure she could do that. Of course, the things may change if Phoenix-Söderling will appear in the nearest months...

Well, there are Challengers in all DC weeks so playoffs on DC F weekend shouldn't be a problem in that sense.

Sweden will propably lose in September and that means they have to play a home tie against Denmark in October.

Agree. I didn't think what will be in case of Sweden's 1 round loss
