Re: Ask the board Thread

The new manager set the OOP for Winnetka at 8 am local time, three hours before the match starts, but he posted the oop only at 5 am CEST time, so I was already going to work and couldnt send before.


Matches still didnt start in Winnetka and deadline is over, however I am sending my picks and I expect them to be accepted. Its not fair to set an early deadline.

Re: Ask the board Thread

The rules are :-

- Managers will set a deadline at which no more picks will be allowed, even if a point hasn't been played. The deadline will be taken from the official order of play and set at a time when the first match begins where possible. However, managers may occasionally set an earlier deadline at which no more picks will be allowed if their personal circumstances dictate this and plenty of warning is given, attempting to give a window of at least 12 hours for the players to send picks.


My personal opinion is that as the diffs haven't been posted at the early deadline set, then any picks sent before the actual start of play should be accepted.

No differences in Picks or sr´s! So can we put matches from the next day to a round even if it wasn't said when the OOP when was posted?

Re: Ask the board Thread

Is it possible to (without trecking through the rankings list), find a player's current ranking in both singles and doubles by searching on his name somewhere?


This would help managers most, but for myself it would help me decide what tournaments I'd be likely to receive a direct acceptance for, and so help decide what to commit to.


Especially for WB 29th July, as I'm away on holiday the week before, so I won't be able to play Quallies, but can play anything that I'm in the main draw for.

Re: Ask the board Thread

No, he means the web browser word search. So you can find any phrase in rankings thread. Or type the names in sfar's live rankings.

If you have a PC then press Ctrl + F and then type the username in. So if I wanted to find your singles ranking I would go to the singles rankings press Ctrl then F and type Dangermouse in. Then it will highlight your name, so I can easily find your ranking.

Not sure how to do it on a Mac, though.

Why changing the rules after knowning part of the scores?

We don´t have diffs in the second round, and only 1 PTS, probably will win persons that had best results on first round or because they have a better ranking.
Tomorrow will have 8 games for the QF, maybe two of them can be for the second round.
Because all the differences were in the game: Ghem vs Bolt :s

So show me the rule that this is unacceptable to have 5 games for 2RD and 16 for QF.


lolada_4 - thanks for the answer Ok. I see your point of view. End of discussion for me - will be happy with your decision no matter what it will be.
