I think it should be like the real life, because some countries will have an advantage to take the medals, because maybe they have more players in the top 100.
the country (Davis Cup CaptaiN?) will have to manage the players for singles and the players for doubles.
and this will give chances to low ranked to take an spot in this countries tournament
The details haven't been completely worked out yet but it will be like real life

Like Gav said, it will be close to real life, the rankings will determine the players that are qualified. I don't think the DC captains (or 'countries') should have any say on the choices, the best ranked players will have the opportunity to play. If somebody doesn't want to play then the next player in line gets a chance, etc. The other guys can play the regular tour events that week.

I think it should just be the top 64 players that enter the Olympics. It is not fair on people from countries with lots of players to be left out in favour of someone with a lower ranking.

Also people can just change their flag so a country limit won't work anyway.

changing flags doesn't mean anything in TT, you have to choose your nationality before the season starts and it can't be changed during the season

this wont happen. people wont change nationality.

and the olympic tournament is a national tournament.. I think per ex.
if a player ranked 50 cant play because 4 countrymates have more ranking than him, and a player with a 80 ranking enter because is the best from his country

this guy with the ranking 50 maybe can talk with his countrymates to play doubles, to give him a chance to play

Gustavo Marcaccio David Nalbandian Jo-Jo Tsonga Marcos Baghdatis

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers Thread 2008 (March tournaments available December 17th)

What about doubles specialists who might get chosen for Olympic teams but might not in this TT world

I mean, if I'm Bob Bryan, I'd get chosen to get my country a medal even if I may not be a top singles player

It's okay though, my new year TT resolution is to start kicking ass in singles

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers Thread 2008 (March tournaments available December 17th)

A question about SEs: if SEs are known after qualifying tournament has started, who replaces SE spot(s) empty?? Next direct acceptance(s) (who would have already started to play qualies though) or LL?? Or will SEs not available once qualifying tournament starts??

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers Thread 2008 (March tournaments available December 17th)

interesting question...as not every tourney will know if a SE will take place or not

many european-american tourneys with different time zones will make it hard to know if a player will be granted a SE or not

i think the 1st seeded in case there is no SE should be moved directly to main draw and a LL should take the first seeded spot or a player from the qualy draw who gets a SE should be moved to the draw and a LL should replace his spot
