Re: Hopman Cup / please post your wishes/ideas

Hey.. I have an idea.. a suggestion.. but it is going to be really complicated.. and requires organization.. two things.. I think, this game can prove it has

To start with.. We can take advantage of all those statistics that are brought..

With those, (the "country success.. in terms of GS.. MS.. IT..etc.." comes Really handy here)

This is the perfect idea for the tournament..and is really easy to create

Every country.. i mean..group of countrymen.. players.. create.. a paralell league..

Like a davis cup team.. This doesnt require anything.. it is like.. if all the players from a single country have their own "team"..lets see if i make it more clear..

All of TT players from..lets say england.. or at least best ranked.. but it must be open to everyone.. create..lets say a thread.. where only people from that country should post things.. and it turns to be like the ENGLAND TEAM..

Tjhat makes the perfect balance for coaching.. and players..

This country team.. like lets say Davis Cup Captain.. is coached by the TT best ranked of the.. lets say.. month.. 3 months.. last year.. yeah..the best ranked year end (im making it up on my way).. this gives this person.. like the final solution..but he must get at least 40% of rest of countrymen aproval..

Ok.. now.. this "Captain" is like the Team Leader...

-

Now.. the idea is set.. explaining this.. i can make my point more clear.


My idea consists of this:

The best country teams (top 8 for Hoffman cup in this case) enter in this game..

the system to choose country..is by success by country.. you know..like statistics.. ive said that.. but im repeating it..


Ok.. now.. best 8 teams qualify for this Hofman Cup

Now..

here comes the juicy part.. (sounds pretty fair to me to have best 8 countries this way)..


How do we pick people to play?

Thats easy

Once created the league of nations -you can come up with a better name- ..

the Argentinian team.. English Team.. US Team... Belgium Team... etc etc..

There.. in every team.. every lets say player from TT has a saying.. i mean.. can suggest and everything.. but, the highest ranked year end player from the team is the captain

The captain, will lets say..suggest a group of 5 or 6 players -best ranked of course- who had at least reached a Final on ATP level or are top 30... or sth like that.. that had won a title.. whatever.. or just higher ranked.. or in hot form

In fact.. those candidates to represent Argentina will have to try to "apply" to represents its country.. i mean.. the Captain will propose this 5 best players.. and those 5 players will have to revalidate their suggestion by commiting to play..

the best 2 ranked players (can be singles and doubles.. ranked) will make it to the main team.. and.. to decide the third one.. it will be made by poll..from its countrymen.. only countrymen can vote there..

If the captain disagrees from the winner from those other players (if the poll is only between 2.. then.. make it 4 instead of 5.. and by the way..forgot to say.. the captain can and MUST play.. representing his country)..

Coming again.. if the captain feels the people choice for third player is not what he wants (he has privileges for being captain) and the difference is less than 60-40&.. he gets to pick the final player.. if it is more than 60&..

lets say.. 80& of argentinian want.. i dont know.. Aguante_el_gato to represent their country.. the captain must accept the will or argentinians TT..


Polls should close a week before the country event

This may work as well ..for Davis Cup


im not really familiar to how it is played on TT but creating the league of nations.. and making the best TT countries league compete sounds really good.. i mean.. and picking the 4 singles player to represent countries. this way.. (3 and 1 "people's choice") sounds really fun

Same for ARAAG WORLD TEAM CUP

I feel im leaving lots of things in my head and that my idea may not be clear enough..

I know it sounds like trouble.. but really..it is REALLY easy..

If you feel the "country team" post is not possible on the server we can put it in another section..or whatever..there is lot of space in this server..

but i think my idea is great for TT.. and im REALLY willing to help

I know ive been a pain in the a$$ for a couple of you guys.. TT boardmanagers or whatever is the name...

But.. my idea here is try to help.. and try to make this game.. something much more interesting..

Well.. regarding challenger and ATP thing.. im beggining to accept the idea and it doesnt turn that bad.. nevertheless.. i dont want you guys to think i was just trying to annoy everyone..

Im really devoted to the forum..and i m willing to try to work to make things better for everyone..

I hope you like my idea.. seems really fun..and it means a lot of cooperation between everyone.. especially top ranked players.. who turn to be the managers of the game..

so.. it is fun for you..old guys around..and it also leaves a saying to us.. newcomers.. or ill ranked players.. because.. we also have a saying.. we also have a cheering thread or a discussion forum for Davis Cup or Hopman Cup or Araag World Team cup... I mean.. it gives the power to everyone discuss everything.. and.. at the end of the day.. you old folks still have the final saying.. and.. we.. have the chance to express our suggestions and stuff


well.. i think this is just too long.. i hope someone reads it..

if you like the idea.. contact me.. and i can help in whatever way you need me..

or if you like part of the idea.. well go use it.. id be proud to think im actually doing sth for everyone and to turn this game into much more fun..



thanks.. and gluck
