Are you sure Qualifying in Dallas doesn't start on Sunday?

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers 2012 - April tournaments available

Not sure how that would work, you'd have to wait for a board member to respond.

I would say still those who reach R32 should be out of qualies but that's just me.

And can I move the final deadline from friday to sunday?
I have the opposite problem because of a 15 hour time difference. If I have qualifying on Saturday in Pingguo (unlikely due to lack of committments) anyone playing Friday in IW (TT Rd. 64) is out... anyone playing Sunday in IW (TT Rd. 32) is probably out of Monday's Main Draw in Pingguo although I haven't finalized that.

Any thoughts?

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers 2012 - April tournaments available

Technically it would be possible to make a draw with players who are still in IW and if they win on friday/sunday then replace them with alternates or LL... But it would be more work for you.

and in my case it's purely political decision...

let's wait for oppinions of board members

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers 2012 - April tournaments available

2nd week tournaments should be started: qualifying sunday, Main draw tuesday. (The actual tournament's schedule usually does this anyway so you have no choice).

If you are still struggling with time difference issues for your challenger meaning you don't know who in your entry list is eligible to play or not, then post the OOP, tell everyone who MIGHT be eligible to send, and do the draws only after the Indian Wells results are known.

I managed a second week of Indian Wells challenger myself a couple of years ago and it can feel confusing.

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers 2012 - April tournaments available

I believe for Dallas, if quallies start on Monday, then it should be the same as for the other tournaments in terms of round cutoffs, R16 for MD and R32 for quallies or it gives Dallas players an unfair advantage.

But you can make the cut-off on sunday. So decide on Sunday who is allowed to play and make the draws. Players who would be out in other tournaments, should be out in Dallas as well!

Thanks. I will probably have a 'send just in case' scenario and then take it from there.

I'm also managing Baranquilla which is 2nd week of Miami but it is in a similar timezone so should less problems.

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers 2012 - April tournaments available

Could I suggest a a ruling from the board for the shitstorm going on in TT Indian Wells and have it officially announced?

This argument could go on all night.

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers 2012 - April tournaments available

shitstorm

A course of action that would appear to lead to a good outcome, but when undertaken, leads to a situation that is utterly out of control beyond human comprehension.

Um curso de ação que parece conduzir a um resultado bom, mas quando realizada, leva a uma situação que é totalmente fora de controle além da compreensão humana.
