FMTA #19 - Cincinnati


HOW TO PLAY

Choose a Mens Tennis player (Past or Present) of your liking. You have 400 points to be distributed amongst 4 surfaces (Hard, Clay, Grass, and Indoor). You may put a maximum of 115 points to one surface and a minimum of 90. You also have one Tiebreak Bonus which you will assign to one of 4 surfaces. These points can only be distributed once and may not be rearranged.



SCORING SYSTEM

When sending in points, you must split your surface points into 3 sets, 5 for Grand Slams. You will send points for each match you play and be compared with your opponent’s points. Differences in points between players per set is as :-

51 pts. or more - the set is 6-0
41-50 - the set is 6-1
31-40 - the set is 6-2
21-30 - the set is 6-3
16-20 - the set is 6-4
10-15 - the set is 7-5
7-9 - the set is 7-6(0)
6 - the set is 7-6(1)
5 - the set is 7-6(2)
4 - the set is 7-6(3)
3 - the set is 7-6(4)
2 - the set is 7-6(5)
1 - the set is 7-6(6)

For example :

PLAYER A sends :

1. 20
2. 70
3. 10

PLAYER B sends :

1. 3
2. 91
3. 6

PLAYER A won 6:4 3:6 7:6(3)



TIEBREAK SYSTEM

This system is applied when there is no difference. Each player has bonus Tiebreak in one surface. The one with the Bonus on Tiebreak will win it by 9-7. If no player has bonus on tiebreak the lower ranked will pass through with a tiebreak of 10-8. If both have bonus tiebreak the highest ranked player will pass through with an 11-9 tiebreak.



EXTRA BONUS

Player ranked First 5 points more on each surface.
Players ranked Second-Fifth 3 points more on each surface.
Players ranked Sixth-Tenth 1 point more on each surface.
Usa players playing at home 1 point more on each surface.
Europeans playing at Europe 1 point more on each surface.
Europeans playing at home 2 points more on each surface.
South Americans playing at home 3 points more on each surface.
South Americans playing at South America 2 points more on each surface.
Australasians playing at Australasia 2 points more on each surface.



DOUBLES

In Doubles points will be an average of the two players' doubles ranking playing in each team.

Massu, you're in on singles but not on doubles. It's ok for you?
I mean, if you get in to doubles, we will need to wait until another player commit and then the whole tournament schedule will be messed.
I was planning to start tomrrow with Singles R32, then Thursday Singles R16 Doubles R16, Friday Singles QF Doubles QF, Saturday Singles SF Doubles SF and Sunday both finals.
It's okay for you?

to me by pm ;)

I can't find my doubles partner :rolleyes:

If it's urgent and it's okay I can send a total of points for both of us. After all we always decide a total and split it up into two parts anyway.
Also I don't know if he's okay with this but we can't wait forever.

I sent him a pm a few hours ago but he's almost never online. We haven't even discussed new points :(

We have two possible options:

1) I send new points for both of us now.
2) You get a walkover because I am off to bed now and until he logs in, sees my pm, replies to my pm, I log in and find his pm, I reply to his pm, he logs in again, sees my pm and confirms and sends the points it will be after 15 hours from now and it will be too late.

An argument for the walkover is that the ones who login often shouldn't wait because of others who login rarely but an argument against the walkover is that we weren't told to send the points to someone else and Mello is a new player so we didn't know who he was. Also I am online for 7 hours every day and I don't deserve to lose like this because my partner is almost never online when I need him (I wouldn't mind though in this case).

FilipeMB

I know but that's not the problem because you won the match by WO.

because Rochus didn't send any points. He received a bye for the first round as we only got 23 players. But, for me, it's not an excuse for he to not send his points.
There were several players who sent me their points even with no matches in OOP. We could have done this. He had two days to send his points and he didn't send it. He could have seen in the draw yesterday morning and during all the day that he had a match and points to send, and, again, he didn't do so.

Reading the draw and seeing that you had a match to play?
or sending it when the draw was out?
or asking me when you were supposed to send points by PM or by IM?
I made a mistake of not putting your match in the OOP as your match was depending of the result of Pavel vs Schuettler.
And Chela, as you, also forgot to send points and sent it just today, apologizing himself about forgetting to send the points and to do the results the matches that involved me, my double partner and my opponents.
He didn't complained about not knowing about sending points because he knew he could send it earlier, as Baghdatis72 did with his Thursday points, just to not forget to send it
Sorry about my mistake but there is nothing else I could do.

I was thinking about this. What we can do:
1) Use his points from 1st round + yours (not from first round, the point you sent from tomorrow)
2) You send your points and his points. Attention that you would have to send his points (115 available) + yours (110 available)
It is not fair to take you out of doubles matches as it is not your fault that your partner didn't tell you he was going to Cincy to attend the matches.
And about situation of for who to send the points, before I took the tourney to manage, I asked Allez-Alejo about doing the results for the matches involving me and my opponent. He said:


[...]
and excaliburII won't be able to do the score for my opponents in singles and doubles, could you do this?

[...]
sure i can receive points

It was said here in this topic or by PM that you and vamos israel were supposed to send points to him but, as I said, he wasn't able to do so.
So, please, choose the option I said above you prefer.

I had no idea that my partner went to Cincy to watch the matches :o

I prefer to send points as a total for both because obviously you know the points he send for the 1st round and I have no idea what he sent so I will be blindfolded against someone who knows half the points.

I can send points for me (111 since I have 110 + 1 for being number 9 in singles) and vamos israel (116 since he has 115 + 1 for playing in the USA) which makes a total of 227. To who do I have to send the points?

Well taking into consideration that we are all people who have other things to do in life too it's hard for someone who is not in the OOP to guess that he has to send points. I always send points as soon as I know my opponent but that's not mandatory. I think Rochus should be given a second chance here.

We played against Pavel/Coria for a second time? I didn't even send points for that match :scratch:

my mistake, I did a horrible confusion here.
