I thought it was clear for everyone to understand. All the draws are done by random so why wouldn't this one be the same?

I would prefer to have all the RR matches with the same number of matches to predict. It's not a problem, just a matter of consistency within the system...

Re: Tennis Tipping Suggestions/Questions Thread

Just a question about the rankings for next season.

Will it be the same as the ATP? The 4 GS, the 9 TMS events and the 5 best optionals for the Entry Ranking?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Some changes to the ranking system are going to be discussed during the off-season, but I don't think it will come down to that system. It's just not the best system for TT as most managers agreed earlier this year.

Re: Tennis Tipping Suggestions/Questions Thread

I do think that you should be rewarded for doing well in the major events, but that is a long way off for now it was just something I noticed for some reason.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Tennis Tipping Suggestions/Questions Thread

I it is good to follow atp, but by doing this we will change completely the rankings and some players will fall or up by 5 or more places

Re: Tennis Tipping Suggestions/Questions Thread

I think it's an ATP game, therefore I think we should use the ATP ranking system.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Tennis Tipping Suggestions/Questions Thread

We shouldn't blindly follow the ATP in everything, if it doesn't benefit the game. This is the case with the rankings, as TT is very different from ATP.

Re: Tennis Tipping Suggestions/Questions Thread

I need to get this straight.

As this year is a test year and there is no Champs Race, but will there be one next year?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Yes, both rankings (entry and race) will be done next year.

Ok, that has cleared things up for sure.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
