But if the tournament director posts the OOP. But says to send to someone else. And you still send it to the Tournament Director, it should count. Because he is in fact running the tournament.
The rules are very clear on this point, you have to send to the person given in the OOP and nothing else is counted as valid picks. You can always suggest a rule change in the next off-season rule review. I will vote against it. The manager only does this when he's not around to post diffs on time the next day.

Re: Ask the board Thread

Just noticed rugsal25 is in both the Mestre and Nottingham draws...he committed to Mestre first but didn't send any picks there.
So I guess he forgot about committing to Mestre...do I keep him in the N'ham draw?

He should be OUT from Nottingham

Code:
- Players are only allowed to commit to one tournament per week.
- If a player commits to two different tournaments in the same week, the first commitment prevails.
- If the double commitment is not noticed by the managers, points gained by the player in any of the two tournaments will not be considered.

It's a little late of course, but taking him out of singles and replacing him with a LL won't change anyhting for the results (he lost in R1, and the LL would have lost as well).
In doubles however he was part of a LL team playing another LL team, so technically I have to alter the draw because no LL team should get a bye. But it seems a little late to change the draw now, right?

So. I'm just gonna leave it as it is. If he sends picks for doubles tomorrow I won't accept them and that's that.
If anyone from the board thinks I should act otherwise (i.e. change the draw) let me know.

It's really difficult but I would also leave it as it is although it's not totally correct.

Re: Ask the board Thread

Hi, this is just a question for future reference, because I think it's too late for me to act on it now:

I'm in the final of the Nottingham I CH for this week. Would that have granted me an SE into a tournament in the next week, and if so, which ones?

It would have granted you an SE into any of this week's challenger tournaments if you asked ahead of the 2nd deadline, which was yesterday.

You can ask before you actually reach the final, if you don't know if you'll make it or not until it's too late. Just post in the thread where you'll be playing that you request a SE in case you reach the final of "xxx", typically after you've reached the SF. You'll then get it if you're successful, if not then it will be like you never asked.

Re: Ask the board Thread

Could anyone post the OOP for 's-Hertogenbosch tonight?
I'm watching me some World Cup, and won't be able to do it until quite late...definitely not before 11.30 PM.

I can do it. If you know approximately when it will be out, that info would be appreciated.

Re: Ask the board Thread

I have this in Wimbledon, Could someone of the board confirm that I take the right decision

However we were replaced instead of them, apparently because of our rankings. I was just wondering if that decision should have instead been based on who had more correct SR's, before resorting to rankings.

Since noone in the board has answered yet I'll make a stab at it.

Replacing is done before play starts. You don't know who will take the spot yet but you know where they will land. So the fact that the lowest ranked pair managed to outscore someone is not important and you made the right decision. That's my take on it.

Re: Ask the board Thread

Sorry to bother you because I used to know this, but I have forgotten it now. How do you determine the ranking date used for the TTs?
