I have a question. I'm in top 30 in doubles entry rankings and #139 in singles. That means I could play CHs only in singles if this rule would be accepted or...?

Re: Tennis Tipping Suggestions/Questions Thread

Maybe for Hopman Cup it would be the best to have a commitment thread at the beginning of December for ~10 days, so that all interested players could commit with a partner. Male/Female should play together.

Then the top 8 pairs (combined ranking) would play, from 8 different countries of course.

Re: Tennis Tipping Suggestions/Questions Thread

Singles ranking I would say and only 2 players per team. 2/3 of each tie are singles.

Re: Tennis Tipping Suggestions/Questions Thread

Hi to all people here
I've 2 Suggestions/Questions about TT:

1/ in some rounds it has been implemented a TB2, with the intention of replacing the TB1 if this is not played for whatever reason.
This seems perfectly reasonable.
My question is: if this TB2 exists, in case of a tie, why not to use it before using the TB of the previous rounds? Take a look at this post Tennis Tipping #57 Madrid - Congrats to the winners!!!, I ended up losing one 2nd round match by TB2 from a 1st round (in spite of have won TB2 of 2nd round, that was not used )

2/ This year I've lost several times in doubles by playing alone
And now I just find out that in the case of Doubles, it's possible to send my picks and picks of my partner just in case he/she couldn't send them.
If this is right, I could have avoided some defeats, if I had sent my picks with a message like this: "just in case of no picks from my partner: consider these same picks for him"
is that right?

Thanks

1. TB2 should only ever been used in the first round (to reduce the possibilty of going to ranking). In some tournaments a tb2 option was mistakenly provided in the 2nd round but was not used for results as the mistake was spotted in time.

2. No, it is not possible for your tips to be doubled if your partner fails to send in tips. Somebody has recently brought this up as a potential rule change for next year and it has been discussed in the 2007 Rules & Changes Thread. Personally, I'm against it as it can lead to complacency on the part of some players who may not bother to send in their tips if they know their partners' can be used.

1- in TMS Madrid they announced that was provided to replace a non play TB1 (and that was what they said to me, that I lost because it was only used for a non played TB1. They didn't say to me that it was a mistake that had been corrected on time ).
I don't question my defeat (it's a lost thing). I only suggest that, if for whatever reason, there is provided a TB2 in a 2nd round match, the most logical would be to use it before TB2 from previous round

2- today I read in Buenos Aires Challenger thread that several managers had considered it valid during this year. Then is something that is due to uniform between managers

Thanks again Gavnich77

Re: Tennis Tipping Suggestions/Questions Thread

we could change the entry system to:
Half the players for ranking and the other half for order of commitance.
How about it?

Re: Tennis Tipping Suggestions/Questions Thread

Question for the TT board.

If a 2nd round match is tied, how would the scoring work....the manager has set 3 TB matches. I was under the impression that the scoring goes TB1, CB, TB2, TB3. I checked a couple of old threads and the Rogers Cup and Hamburg threads seem to confirm this, but I wanted to make sure.

If it goes TB1, TB2, TB3, CB then my opponent wins.
If it goes TB1, CB, TB2, TB3 then I win.

Thanks

Re: Tennis Tipping Suggestions/Questions Thread

It'd be just to make the game more realistic and to give some problems with lists and draws to the managers, cause here we can play tournaments in one place and qualies in another. It's not a problem since they're different competitions. Not something wrong that can't be accept SEs might be implemented anyway.
