i dont think it's a big deal as long as iltb forwards the picks to you.
Yeah but imagine if the same situation happens in another tournament and that manager doesn't accept the picks sent to the incorrect person? The player who did it would be confused and possibly angry. I think you should designate the player who posts the OOP for you as your assistant manager so you would be allowed to accept picks sent to him/her. Otherwise you're ignoring the rules.

Allez-Alejo did send, but didn't send to his doubles partner, and Tzar hasn't been on the site since Wednesday, and didn't send at all.

What's the solution please?
Has anyone from the board got any thoughts on this before the main draw starts tomorrow?

The best you can do is make them LL1 for the MD.

What Evita said. They could've been added to the qualy draw as alternates, but Tzar didn't send picks.

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers Thread 2011

I agree with Murilo and Evita.
If Tzar would have sent for quallies they would have entered.

I guess that's not really fair on the LLs from qualifying, though...

But then they've already had their chance of playing in Rome which AA/Tzar haven't - being a LL is a bonus.

If you all agree that's the fair thing to do, that's what I'll do then.

I don´t agree with Gavin here.
Tzar did not send for quallies, so they should not get the chance as LL for main draw.

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers Thread 2011

I guess Allez-Alejo's point is that it was my mistake that meant that Tzar didn't send - he didn't see them in the qualifying draw - but he didn't check the doubles main draw entry, which is a shame, because there was an ALT spot available in the first round

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers Thread 2011

Well, it looks like we're 2-1 here. I guess we go with the majority decision unless Jim and/or Ville have a different view before the deadline.

Actually, I've just re-read this and I was assuming that they would have got into the MD directly with their ranking not the QD therefore I now agree with Murilo & Alex.

That'll teach me to read things properly

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers Thread 2011

I think Tzar should have checked the main draw entry as well as the qualifying draw entry, I know I would have done.

So that makes it 3-1

Edit: 4-0
