Dont think I've ever seen this, but according to the facebook page of the challenger they are stopping the tournament in the quarterfinals and there will be no winner

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gi...9723356&v=wall

Quick translation of the main points of the article:

- Strong rains have forced the tournament in accordance with the ATP supervisor to stop the tournament.
- For the last few days other options were looked at, but nothing escaped the rain anywhere on the island
- All the players split the winnings and no one is declared the winner, each receiving 15 ATP points
- Players leaving today to reach South Africa and Europe for next tournaments
- In spite of the weather this first edition was successful and they are already thinking of organizing the next edition, which will probably be played at another time of year to avoid rainy season.

I'll let the TT board decide how to proceed, but I assume all the semi-finalists will split points as well

Funny how things work out - abollo's internet is cut in light of the protests and not one additional match was completed after that. My efforts to rescue the tournament were in vain

« Dame Nature » a mis prématurément fin à la première édition de l’Open de la Réunion. Les fortes pluies qui se sont abattues sur l’ensemble de l’Ile nous ont contraint, en accord avec le superviseur ATP et les joueurs, à annuler les matches prévus ce dimanche. En effet les prévisions météorologiques pour les heures à venir ne sont guère optimistes, il aurait été impossible de finir le tournoi, même en envisageant de jouer les derniers matches lundi.

Nous avons recherché plusieurs solutions de repli, mais celles-ci ont toutes été abandonnées : le gymnase de Champ-Fleuri a été envisagé, mais celui-ci a été inondé au moment où les joueurs s’apprêtaient à frapper leurs premières balles. Nous avons aussi pensé à organiser les matches sur une autre partie de l’Ile, mais l’ensemble de la Réunion est touché par les précipitations.

Le tournoi s’arrêtant au stade des quarts de finale, il n’y a pas de vainqueur. Les huit quarts de finalistes du tournoi de simple empochent chacun 875 € et 15 points ATP. Les paires demi-finalistes du double repartent de la Réunion avec 650 € et 29 points. Les joueurs repartent dès aujourd’hui en direction de l’Afrique du Sud pour certains (Serra, Roger-Vasselin, Schukin, Przysiezny…) et de l’Europe pour d’autres (Sadecky, Rodrigues).

Malgré cette fin de tournoi capricieuse, les premiers jours ont montré que la mise en place d’un tel événement sur l’Ile de la Réunion correspond à une réelle attente, avec un niveau sportif intéressant.

Nous nous penchons d’ores et déjà sur l’organisation de la prochaine édition, avec très probablement un changement de date pour éviter la saison des pluies.

If they play it next year I hope they can attract a better line-up for the qualifiers!

Don't feel frustrated, you did a great job keeping things going.

Everything has just been bizarre about it, from the no-name qualifiers to the protests in Egypt then to three days straight of torrential rain. And then to more or less stiff the players who have been sitting around for three days by saying they all lost in the QF (at least for prize money) is unfair.

The organizers want to try again next year, but at another time of year when its not rainy season. They couldnt get anyone a week before Johannesburg - who will they get in the middle of June? This should definitely not be a TT tournament next year if it takes place again.

So internet was blocked in Egypt in the last few days
I am very sorry for that
I think it isn't the best start for a manager
Thanks for who tried to take this over, but as I see the tournament didn't continue
I hope to see you again in other tournaments I manage !

BTW: everything's updated in page 1

Abollo don't worry you don't have any guilt for this.
Hope everything is ok around you.
