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

Sorry for not running anything lately, I've been so busy I even forgot to enter Bucharest. But I'll take Bangkok or Beijing next week. Any preferences?

Ok, not sure if I'm actually allowed to or not but I shall run the FITD thread for Beijing. It's only really adding the points up when I can right? I mean, even if I don't do it everyday, I can still update later Hope this is ok.

Sure why not, I've recovered from USO

(unless someone else is dying to do Metz - I have no sentimental connections to it ).

I can do one, what are they? Give me one that will have lots of pix cuz Metz sucked, I need pix.


Edit: Hell, let's be honest, I could do 2 or 10 or 15 if necessary.

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

Then I'll take Vienna! Cuz it has Canyas & Schwankeleh (who will both lose 1R but whatever). Unless Boarder wants it. Second choice is Moscow (Llllooooodraaaahhhh ). Stockholm third choice (Return of the Pim). But really I don't care, they are all equally foreign to me.

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

Just had a general question/proposal to throw out there. I know these things can be a pain to run sometimes, but I feel like something can be done about the late withdrawals in these tournaments. For example, Robredo withdrawing for Vienna on the second day of the tournament. Obviously it is unfortunate for those who have selected him to go far. I also understand that part of the risk of picking any player to do well is that said player might get injured.

I have done some FITD with some friends away from this website, and we agreed that if a player withdrew once the tournament had started, a person could not change his or her bracket, but that the LL took the place of the player who had retired.

In the Robredo example, Giraldo is the LL. I had Robredo advancing to the semi-final. In our system, I now have Giraldo to the semifinal. I feel this allows players not be harmed by unforeseen withdraws, without giving them the advantage of changing their brackets. Any thoughts?

FITD Titles:
2008: Olympics, Stockholm; 2009: Chennai; 2010: Basel
TT Singles:
Champion: 2009: Como CH; 2010: Napoli CH; 2011: French Open
Finalist: 2010: Ostrava CH, Braunschweig CH
TT Doubles:
Champion: 2008: Como CH (w/hahaha7), Tashkent CH (w/Adder A216); 2009: Jersey CH (w/Adder A216); 2010: Caltanissetta CH (w/Adder A216); Athens CH (w/Adder A216); Milan CH (w/Adder A216); Napoli CH (w/Adder A216); Orleans CH (w/Adder A216)); 2011: Meknes CH (w/Adder A216)
Finalist: 2008: Tulsa CH (w/hahaha7); 2009: Wolfsburg CH (w/EnriqueIG8), Manerbio CH (w/dusan1610); Como CH (w/Adder A216); Champaign CH (w/Adder A216); 2010: Ostrava CH (w/Adder A216); Aptos CH (w/Exponente); Binghamton CH (w/Adder A216); 2011: Dallas CH (w/Adder A216)
