Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

Great thread

I have a question though - what is this 'old' system mentioned below? When determining the order of LL's which results are counted? Only from the final qualifying round or all the qualifying rounds?

LL's just like in the ATP, except the order of lucky losers will be determined with the 'old' system (most correct picks, SR's, PTS...)

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

I have another question, if a playa commits to a torunament, but then changer his mind, cancel this "inscription" and commit to another tourney before the first deadline, is he a LE? Cause he commits in time, the only problem is that he was in another commitment for that week and cancels it (for some reason like points or more chance to make the MD on the other or even time zone).

Tks.

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

But Nando re-committed to the same tournament. Say someone commits to an ATP event on Monday, then withdrews and commits to a Challenger on Tuesday, are they a LE then?

Also what if that person deletes their committment from the ATP event so there is no longer any record they actually posted in the thread. Are they an LE for the Challenger?

It´s okay that these people have disvantage from the others who commit in time only one time, but they should have advantage to other late entries who didn´t respected the first deadline. This way someone who changes idea in the first day of commitment (before 2 weeks) can get out of the tourney cause of bad rkg.

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

lets set up a TT Court, and that can be the first test case

we can set new precedent here. Yay

interesting - TT court FTW

That's just bad - mods can find out paper trail. They should be banned for cheating

Final round If tied, the previous round is used.

Yes, LE. Actually tournament changes are only allowed after the first deadline, so any change before the first deadline must be considered a normal late entry.

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

I think we need to have stricted round deadlines from events like TMS, to the players who have commited to the challenger and that should or shouldn't be allowed to play in that challenger, because they're still playing in the TMS.

Like the ones who get dismissed from the TMS on the round played on FRIDAY, gets the chance to play qualies and MD. I think that it's the most valid option, because it won't mess with the challenger draw and further schedules, like the OOP, etc.

Just an option.

Re: Tennis Tipping FAQ/Guide

Question:

Can I only fill my MD with LL from the final round of qualifying? What happens if I have more than 4 LL spots in my draw? Can I get LLs from the first round if necessary to fill my draw?

Excellent.

One more question, this is a good one.

I have 3 LLs to put in my MD for Nottingham due to RG related withdrawals.

So I'm sorting my 4 final round qualifying losers, and have my first 2. One of the last 2 is in and the other is out, right? Except, the last 2 to choose between are doubles partners, who have sent identical picks for both rounds of qualifying, and thus have identical scores and SRs

How do I choose which one is automatically in? Ranking?
