Re: 2009 FITD Management Thread

I'll try to have the 2010 calendar up soon so people can start picking tournaments they want to run.

and also, now that it is the off season, feel free to bring up any topics to discuss for the upcoming season

Re: 2010 FITD Management Thread

Ok the 2010 calendar is up so if you'd like you can start picking tournaments to run now. I'm not sure if all the dates/Sunday starts are right yet but I just copied it from the ATP website.

and also I wanted to ask everyone about what they thought about a new tiebreak rule in 2010. I sort of tried it out in the WTF and I thought that it worked well. and just so everyone understands, I think that a tiebreak rule might be good for the game since right now it's pretty common for people to be tied for the same spot. (which might cause a problem if there were 3, 4, or even 5 people tied for 1st place, which isn't common but it's possible - I think it would be better if there was just 1 or at most 2 champions for a tournament)

My idea for the tiebreak rule is to go by how many correct picks the players had in each round, (for example)
1. # of correct Final picks
2. # of correct SF picks
3. # of correct QF picks
4. # of correct R16 picks, etc.
and if the players are still tied after each round, then they'll just remain tied.

so please share your thoughts on this!

Re: 2010 FITD Management Thread

I'll manage Doha
And I agree with the new tiebreak rule. We've had a couple of times that we had 4 or 5 winners, then the points got divided by 5 so the Tiebreaker is the most fair option in my opinion.

Looking forward to the new season
