TT poll: Late entries & Special exempts

Should late entries be eligible to receive special exempts? Current rules: yes.

This is a rare situation in TT, and the player usually doesn't know if he/she will actually receive the SE when applying for it, but it's still possible to happen.

Another possible approach: should players who didn't commit on time be allowed to receive a SE and take the MD place of a player who commited before the first deadline?

This is the first paragraph of the eligibility section of the Special Exempts topic. I'm not sure if it helps, as late entries don't exist in ATP.

Re: TT poll: Late entries & Special exempts

I say they should be able to get SE. Say someone really low ranked makes the final in an ATP event but has signed up for a challenger the following week. Now that they've made the final they can switch to an ATP event for a SE, and they would be a LE, so if we switched this then they couldn't.

In the ATP while there are no late entries, you can not enter any tournament in a week, and if you do well enough for a SE the previous week then you can get the SE even though you didn't enter on time(equivalent to a LE). Like for example Frank Dancevic didn't intend on playing Helsinki challenger this year. But he made the semis of the tournament before(Bratislava I think) so he was given the SE into Helsinki

I would suggest to change the priority criteria for SE, I mean that if more than two players apply for SE then those spots should be given according to the entry list but not ranking as it is now. This way LE's would be disadvantaged but not ineligible for SE's.

What is the final decision on this rule?
