Let the discussions and votes, I just wanted to help Strangelove who sought help, but if it is not possible I regret it very much. Strangelove, will have to find another assistant.

Like I said, I'm cool with it, but if it causes strife amongst the members of the board, then the board better provide me with another assistent, because now I have nobody to receive my picks :(

And today would be good, because I have to send q-picks for Sydney :p

I don't think that someone who's banned from TT should have any involvement in a TT tournament but if no-one else has a big problem with it then I guess it's ok :shrug:

I don't think it's such a big matter :shrug:
Let Diego receive those picks :p

I wasn't saying that Diego couldn't receive picks, I was just giving my opinion and like I said if no-one else has a problem with it then it's ok for him to receive your picks.
As no-one has objected then it's fine for him to receive your picks :)

The doubles team of vamos israel/dupuis2006 was moved from the main doubles draw of Auckland to the qualifying doubles draw, 22 minutes before the start of the qualifying matches, so they couldn't send picks. This looks very unfair...

i also think we should be the first LL spot for the MD.

this is really unfair for us :rolleyes:
so someone wants to talk with Alonsofz and tell him to put us in the first LL spot for the main draw?

Mr. Brightside is one of the other LL who would have a disadvantage from this measure. It's logical he disagreed. I think board member Gavnich77 support is already enough authorization.

I think that'll be fine, but someone will also need to edit the first few posts with updated entry lists, draws, OOPs, etc. If one of the mods can do that, that would be better.

there are 3 challengers in the same week, I guess a lot of players can/will change to this events.

also it's not probable you have a 32qualy draw in ATP

Some of us who knew the qualifying situation went to the challengers. You can't just change the size of the draw :shrug: The challengers besides Wroclaw have plenty of space. Even as LE, people would be able to get into at least qualifying of Dallas and Guangzhou. They're half empty.

yep

regarding this issue.. would it be fine if in these special weeks we create some sort of "backup partner?"

like "doubles with manu86 -backup tennisfancroatia" :p and if manu86 keeps playing and TFC's partner is still playing, we are automatically teamed up :p

It's been done before, but the players must ask for something like this well in advance, not at the last minute

why is it allowed only in Heilbronn?

01-19-2008, 05:31 PM
Stop whining. It is allowed in Heilbronn cause I´m stricter than Acemaker. But I will make an exception here and put you on the alternate list with someone, so you could stop complaining. You had two weeks to commit here :rolleyes:

just checking..

I made a typo mistake in the OOP for qualy round1

V. Mazarakis vs D. Muñoz de la Salva SR7 PTS

the actual surname of the right player is

D. Muñoz de la Nava

(there are no muñoz de la Salva or whatsoever.. the only "muñoz de la" is "nava" and the only "Salva" is "salva-vidal")

a player has asked to cancel that match because he thought it was a completely different player..

i told him i think the typo was close enough for everyone to realize who this player was, and that if he had doubts he should have asked before.. not now the result is in..

should it be left as it is or should it be cancelled from the OOP?

but if that is a difference (lets say Vicente vs Rival... player 1 has vicente, player 2 has rival) in that case the winner counts.. if both picked the same player the 2-1 or 2-0 wont count

Matches with a retirement don't count for the #SRs count. However they do count in the SR shoutout (SR1, SR2 etc) if one player has the correct winner and the other doesn't.

PTS1 should always be used even if both players have the wrong winner. Only if the PTS1 score is the same, then use PTS2, etc.

Hmmm

According to keqtqiadv and a strict interpretation of the TB rules, matches with a retirement also don't count in the SR shootout, even if one player has the correct winner.

I think this is counter-intuitive and a weakness/mistake in the TB system and should be corrected.

In last year's SR shootout system when a match with a retirement was considered the correct winner rule did count. I see no reason why it should be different this year

Wats the deal with qualifying points? If you don't qualify do you get 1 or 0 points? If you win 1 game but dont qualify do you get any points?

I'm not sure, but I think the opponents with the worst rank gets assigned an alternate first, so some players with a better ranking may get a w.o.. This seems to be the best way :shrug:

in 8 hours time you can start reserving, but there's no rush, the reservation period is 2 weeks long, after which I'll make the final decisions :p

to make my job easier, it would be nice if you would also name back-up tournament(s) in case you don't happen to get your first wish :)

Nowadays lots of managers/assistants are posting full details of players picks, which is understandable because it's so difficult to work out diffs these days. However I feel that those with a keen eye can gain an unfair advantage by studying players picking habits - can I request that the exact details of my picks remain private for the future? :) And maybe it should be made easy for others to request the same?

I realise the irony here - I once asked if it would be okay for me to arrogantly challenge an opponent by revealing my picks to them before play started :lol:

Labamba
02-10-2008, 11:47 AM
In tennis you can study your opponents before the match, why not here?

Anyway, the managers get advantage when they see how different players play, so I think it would be best if all the picks were public :)

I actually kind of agree with that, that's why I don't just post the whole set of picks and just try to post the differences where possible.

It makes it harder work for managers though, especially with the new SR rules....I pray for matches having an odd number of differences :lol:

Last year players who sent every favourite 6-3 6-4 had a pretty big advantage and won a lot of matches on PTS against players who weren't clued up about PTS. With the new rules the advantage is less, but in general I think it is a good thing that players need to earn their wins with good picks instead of just taking advantage of better knowledge of the points system.

True, true. Just thinking out loud really. Also, with this recent transparency I notice there is a growing trend of abuse toward other players' picking styles, which I think is rude and moronic.

:lol: :hug:

I guess I just like picking "in the dark", so to speak - having to rely on wild guesswork as the only method of deducing my opponent's strategy :lol:

And I suppose the "abuse" is actually building personalities within our game. The "quality TTers" (picking underdogs left, right and centre - then braggging about the one you hit after the match) vs "cagon TTers" (picking underdogs only when there is good reason) annoyed me at first, but now is kinda hilarious ;)

My view is it's ok, as long as it's not for months or something.

I mean, I know a lot of people who when they can't send picks they give their password and ask someone to send for them, and this isn't really any different.
