In my view it would be unfair to allow the new player to get a spot in the qualification draw, because the other players did commit on time.
You have about 2 weeks time to commit to a tournamnet, so the 2nd deadline should be seen as one, allowing players who commit later only an ALT status.
I agree - he/she should be an ALT for qualifying
Ah OK fairynuff - I was only questioning as I thought a Manager could extend deadine if quallies starts on Sunday and I personally would rather see 4 qually matches played - however, I bow to your superior knowledge
That same player has committed to doubles - the main draw has 15 teams in it, as main draw play starts Monday I take it it's OK to let them have that final spot in the draw?
