Re: Tennis Tipping | Managers Thread

We should make the decision before Sunday, has anyone changed their mind? I would be happy with the one-set-completed rule too, both ways are fine with me.

I changed mine. I didn't realize invu2day had posted before me. I never liked the idea of not counting matches with retirement.

Ok, so invu2day's proposal has been accepted and we'll start using this new rule next week in tournaments at Estoril and Munich.

I quite like the idea, as we won't have places for all TT players in Pörtschach. We should use the same system of entry, combined rankings of best players of each country.

Re: Tennis Tipping | Managers Thread

Can a TT player play both ARAG and Pörtschach?

I wouldn't have thought so as it would be unrealistic

I was afraid you were gonna say that. You're not making things easier for me Gav. Should Romania qualify for ARAG WC, what will I do? Play for my country in Dusseldorf or get greedy and go to Pörtschach to gain ranking points? Tough decision

Ranking points in Portschach won't be worth that much though and you'll get the opportunity to replace them later in the year
