Re: 2009 FITD Management Thread

Hey d_s when you get a chance can you please check the Rotterdam thread? Whenever there's been an LL situation, I've always given credit for LL wins (e.g., if Polansky replaces Baghdatis, anyone who picked Baghdatis gets credit if Polansky wins). I don't know if anyone else ever did this, I thought it was the rule based on the 2008 management thread.

Nalbandian d. Nadal

2nd round:
Nalbandian d. Stepanek

and so on...

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.

I remember this rule from last year.
I felt sorry for all the times I didn´t use this rule, so as far as I remember the way you do it is correct

Re: 2009 FITD Management Thread

Hey guys,

See for Rotterdam, I have 46 players, but theoretically, it's a 500 32 player draw. So for points distribution, so 33-46 get 0? Or do we use the 64 player points tally? Or do we conisder either 1) allowing first come first served entry, 2) allowing entry by rank similar to TT or 3) create new points tables?

Also, waht happens with ties? Like say in Vina Del Mar, i have 5 people tied for 20th place. Do you take 20-24 points values and divide them by 5? And round them to the nearest integer? How does it work

Yes that is the rule and that's how I've always done it.
If a seeded player withdraws, you are allowed to change your draw though if play has not started yet. (But this rule is mostly for when a seeded player withdraws and the draw is rearranged because a 9th seed is added, etc) In Rotterdam's case Gicquel just replaced Soderling and there was no other change to the draw and even though no one re-posted their draw, Gicquel's points would count for anyone who picked Soderling. Hope this clarifies everything

Yes, since Rotterdam is a 32 draw anyone placed after 32 won't get any ranking points. If it were a 64 draw the 64 points would be used.

When I made the points I wasn't exactly sure how many players we would be expecting to play each week but it seems every tournament we're getting at least 32 players so far.
I'm still not sure if I should make a 64 point table for the 250 tournaments, but I guess we can decide that when one of those tournaments come along. And also for Grand Slams I thought 128 places is a bit much so it's only 96 places. If we ever get 128 players for Grand Slams I can make another one

As for ties, what I've been doing all along is what you mentioned and taking the points for the tied places and dividing by the number of players and rounding to the nearest integer.

Re: 2009 FITD Management Thread

I think the scoring system is fine. It should be 32 out of however many players play. With multiple tournies a week, the player is likely to get points somewhere else. If a person does so bad that they finish 33rd or worse in multiple tournaments, I don't mind if they get no points.
