Thanks a lot!
It's really quite easy doing the points, especially if you use Excel. If you're up for it, you can do either Amersfoort of Umag. Thanks!

Who's gonna manage Toronto? I won't have much time next week, so I'd appreciate it if someone else could do it.

2nd round:
Nalbandian d. Stepanek

Nalbandian withdraws and Gulbis is the lucky loser. If Gulbis wins first round, you WILL receive that win points, the same on second round and so on.
Can someone please confirm for me, if Baghdatis withdraws and is replaced by LL, then anyone who picked Baghdatis over Polansky still gets points if the LL beats Polansky?

I guess that's right then. I never knew VaiBrasil added that as a rule On the women's forum they don't have this so I got a bit confused

Oh dear I never knew about this rule, I only knew that if a seeded player withdraws he can be replaced.

I guess some of the standings from tornaments managed by me are wrong if this rule exists.

...then in accordance with the rule, unless somebody tells me otherwise I'm gonna treat all the Baghdatis pickers as if they picked the TBA quallee/LL.

Yes, it seems that's the way to do it. And I like this rule, I always wished we had it.

Re: Fill-in-the-draw 2008 - New season, some changes, new managers wanted!

Hey can I do Cincinnati? If you let me I promise I will back off and let somebody else have a turn. It is my natal land, the city where I first learned to play tennis, where I saw my first pro tennis match, where there is a parks department tournament named in memory of my father, and I can't even play TT there cuz my ranking is so bad.
