Re: 2015 Challenger Challenge Suggestion Thread

I would like to propose the following.

- Each event is only one week, regardless of the number of challenger events.

- Two types of rankings will be kept - race and rankings - they will be the same next year, but after next year will be different like the ATP tour. (I can keep the rankings)

- Multiple managers will be used. This is the easiest event to manage, but putting the load on one person is too much.

- Leaving the point system as it currently is.

Re: 2015 Challenger Challenge Suggestion Thread

I like the one week event & the race/rankings idea. I assume the top 8 in race will be the ones picking the CH Final.

Tennis Tipping
[Singles - 3]: 2015 (Eckental CH); 2013 (Rimouski CH, Johannesburg CH)
[Doubles - 9 (all with tealeaves)]: 2017 (Panama City CH); 2016 (Chennai ATP250); 2015 (Kaohsiung CH, Genova CH); 2014 (Szczecin CH, Guadalajara CH); 2013 (Cherbourg CH, Bergamo CH, Poznan FUT)

Re: 2015 Challenger Challenge Suggestion Thread

NEW RULE

BACK-UP PICK - In each tournament of the week, players are allowed to make a four back-up pick, one by quarter. If one of the predicted players for the SF, F and Champion withdraws and not entered into the main draw, the back-up is used. IF NONE OF THE PREDICTED PLAYERS WITHDRAW, THE BACK-UP IS NOT USED AND YOU DON'T EARN ANY POINTS FOR IT!

Here's an example on how to predict:

Prostejov
SF: Gabashvili, C. Rochus
F: Hernych
W: Ramirez-Hidalgo
BU: Greul-Dancevic-Groth-Clezar

NEW HAVEN 08 ZAGREB 09 MONTECARLO 09 BUENOS AIRES 10 HOUSTON 11 KUALA LUMPUR 11 GUANGZHOU CH 15 IRVING CH 15 SINGLES CHAMPION

Re: 2015 Challenger Challenge Suggestion Thread

I have a few suggestions for this game.

Suggestions about Rankings:

- I'm thinking about running the rankings for this game, but I want to know what your opinions on the rankings should be. There should be some variation in ranking points for weeks with higher level challenger tournaments.

- Rankings should be completely started over for the 2016 season?

Maybe, but it might be difficult since all the events are taken together, if it was like FITD then yes, but since it's not then maybe no.

Re: 2015 Challenger Challenge Suggestion Thread

I suggest we go back to doing 2 week rounds when there are only 2 events in a week, as there are too many ties, we need 3 or more events per round, it never should have been changed in the 1st place.

Re: 2015 Challenger Challenge Suggestion Thread

I think a great addition to each round would be to pick the doubles winner (and possibly finalist). This could eliminate ties and also add some fun.

FITD Titles - Nottingham 2016, Gstaad 2017

Challenger Challenge - #9 2017

Favourite Players: Brown, Kyrgios, Peers, Kontinen, Federer, Stepanek, Mergea, Mahut, Herbert, Dodig, Melo, Tecau, Kubot, Dimitrov, Khachanov, Mektic, Skugor, Pospisil
