usually ranked by amount of prize money but not always.

a is more likely to be a 120 point tt challenger (provided it meets the prize level platform)

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

I've got 2 questions regarding the SE spots
1- Is a player on the ALT list allowed to get a SE in the maindraw?
2- A player should reach the final in a tournament to be allowed to take the SE. What if the semi-final results aren't out at the time of doing the Q draw. I guess the best thing to do is put this player's name in the Q Draw and leave the a spot free in the MD, if he wins he gets the spot and is replaced by an ALT.
If he loses, seeded 1 in the Q gets the spot and is replaced by and ALT.
Am I right?

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

In Meknes after I made the draw Direnan got out to play in Marseille TT and molosztash asked for a SE as he reached the final in Bergamo.
My questions are:
- Is Direnan allowed to withdraw after the draw is made?
- If yes, should molosztash take Direnan's spot in the MD, or because he requested the SE too late a LL will replace Direnan in the MD??

Direnan should have withdrawn from Meknes BEFORE entering Marseille. He cannot do it now - he either plays Meknes or nowhere.

molosztash is too late for SE, the rule was made tighter this year so that players have to ask. No change in the MD is needed.

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

I have another question
In the first day in Meknes I asked the players to send all their picks in PTS, but 2 players send all their picks SR
and both players are playing against each other.
They have the same winners and same SRs and have no ranking, so who is going to be the winner of both of them??

The player who appears higher on the entry list, the one who committed earlier.

People who have the same ranking points are arranged by the number of tournaments they've played. Whoever has played less gets the higher ranking. I would thInk it would work the same for unranked players as well: whoever has played in fewer tournaments gets the higher "ranking" and wins the match. If they have played in the same number if tournaments, then it's gonna have to be a coin flip I would think.

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide


What happens if a real player in a match isn't decided yet and I put 2 possibilties in the OOP and a TT player sends only one
e.g
A vs B (was scheduled the day before and wasn't played)
so the OOP is

C vs D PTS 1
E vs F SR 2
A vs M SR 3
B vs M SR 3
X vs Z SR 4

Now if a player sends:
C 6/0 6/0
E 2/0
M 2/0
X 2/0

for the third match is the pick (M)valid for both matches or only the match that came first in the OOP??

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

Only the match that came first. This situation has arisen before, and it was decided that the manager cannot "guess" at the player's intention.

No he has to reach the final (unless the Friday ATP matches are delayed till the Saturday - then the players still in TT may apply for SE)
