In response to #3. Even the players in the first round of a GB future have information around about them. They are good players, they have played tennis before, most of them have attempted to qualify before and so on. So by the time you get to the last round, they not only have 3 matches from that tournament but other matches from before, they are generally ranked players.

The players here are 40 year olds that have no information, not on the ITF site, they have never played ANY qualifying matches before, not on the Great Britain National Rankings site. There is nothing. There is a HUGE difference between a futures qualifying draw in GB or USA and these eight players.


I found just that Sibilla played in Reunion in somewhere around 1993,1994,1995. And once even won the 1st round match!

Sibilla has information, so does Manager, Drieux and Millescamp (one loss 5 years ago, so not really). The other four, there appears to be nothing.

Why don't we all pledge to make the exact same picks so that every match is tied going into Tuesday, when the SR priority kicks in

Re: Tennis Tipping #4c - Reunion Island - send Monday picks by 8 am CET

Guys I took this decision and think it's right!!
We don't know how many matches will be played on Tuesday and the other reasonable schedule was to play both R32 and Part 1 from R16 on Tuesday, which wouldn't be the best if there are only 8 matches on Tuesday.
For picking unknown players, you'll have also to deal with it in some matches in MD.
I think it's fair for both players in a match to pick such matches, they are only 4 matches and on Tuesday you'll have to pick from 8 matches.
In the MD there are matches where you'll pick no-ranked players.
I just looked back to older tournaments and found out that in several tournaments players had to pick such matches.
Sorry for any caused problems for anyone!!

In the game, participants pick the winners of all main draw matches
I think this is the main goal of this game. I don't like when we have to choose between last matches of qualies draws but I understand there is need for that sometimes - lack of main draw matches during first days.
But here, it seems that manager will add 8 tuesday's matches to the first TT round, so using these 4 from QD is really not necessary. Don't change this game to tennis guessing
