I'd like Bordeaux, please.

these are done deals :yeah:

ouch...:o I'm really, really stupid.
I forget my brother weddings the friday 9th of May.

So i won't be able before the sunday 11th, in the afternoon.

2 solutions :
if someone can do the qualies, i can do the MD :D
If it's too much complicated, i let someone else running this event.:sad:



I'm really sorry about that : all my apologises.
Hope it won't be too difficult.

I thought to something that could be a soluce.
Livio can't manage a tournament now.
Perharps he would like to manage the qualies ?

I'll ask him if he can.

OOP for the only qualy match in Athens wasn't posted, and there's no sign of the manager yet.

So I made a quick OOP, hope that both players send picks for tomorrow. :shrug:

again, unnecessary and rude, supposed to be ironic but you can't use this linguistic resource properly. FiBeR got 2 tournaments, like in the rule - you probably are referring to RG as the 3rd, but it's pretty clear RG is from the previous period and was in a separate box since one more manager is needed.

Ville already gave you an answer to your question and you should learn from him how to be polite.

Not sure if you will ask and be given a Challenger later, but I'd like to propose a poll to decide if you should manage again.

I am managing Doubles Tennis Tipping this week and I have a question:

If a match scheduled on First Round TT Monday OOP is postponed to Tuesday due to rain delay, is there any rule stating that it cannot be cancelled from TT Monday OOP by the TT Manager ? This means that we will have to wait for the result of this match before First Round TT Monday OOP is complete (but that does not prevent from starting Second Round TT on Tuesday).

Then, if this match is rescheduled again from Tuesday to Wednesday (which is the case for Cremona Doubles), do we still have to wait for the completion of this match or could it be OK (after match is postponed a second time) to cancel it from TT First Round ? Is it up to the TT Manager to decide ...

In my case, I am a little bit embarassed because I am the DTT Manager and I am involved in the only first round match not yet being decided. If this match is cancelled, I will go to 2nd Round. I warned yesterday my opponent that if match is postponed again, I would cancel it from OOP, so I think I play fair but I would like your opinion.

Question about some of the unwritten rules when events don't have scores...

Barcelona was scheduled to start at 10, but nothing is on the scoreboard, of course the players have their warmup, but it's now 47 minutes past. Just now a player has sent me picks... they would really have no way of knowing about any results, but should I figure that the first matches up would all be late picks? Do you usually just give a 15 minute warmup period before it's assumed play will have started?

I think that the rules are clear! He's after the deadline and also he had a chance to play in Rome! He was an Alt there, so if enough players wouldn't have send he had played! This is the risk he took there. Sorry, but otherwise I would start taking that risk every week!

i think we should make a clear rule for Alternatives..

i dont think there is much said and as TT is growing so rapidly, the rate of Alt players is growing, so we should take a close look on these cases

personally I think if a player is drawn to the ALT list he should sign up as LE in another tournament who has a better chance of making it :shrug: if he does make the draw in the first tournament (where he was alt) he should be removed from the other tourney's list

we also need a good doubles commitment rule for those weeks of DC, TMS 2nd weeks and GS 2nd weeks.. as people sometimes qualify or are still alive in the tournament and leave their doubles partner empty handed in the other tournament they ve committed

Spadea TT

The reason why the deadline is on friday, is that people can't run to another tournament if they are out early in qualies or not in because they were Alt. At least, that's what I think! So I think you can't move the deadline, and otherwise should watch really well who come in after!

FiBeR
05-04-2008, 12:27 AM
i think in this case.. ALT is not the same as Qualy loser

one thing is losing in the qualies..having at least 1 chance of playing the draw

another thing is being in waiting list and having not to play for a whole week when there is a chance you can (alt in singles AND doubles of course.. :p if playing in 1 of each other draws then no!)

When draws are not fulfilled, it's common rule here to extend deadline till Saturday evening.

But I'm afraid that cases like this, with Alternates never occured. I agree with your point, but I prefer waiting from a clear answer from the board before letting him out.

:shrug:

I don't agree. Because if you are Alt and on the list, you will send picks and hope that you will be placed in the draw. So you have a chance to get into the tournament. That's why you should uncommit and go to another tournament before the deadline!

savesthedizzle
05-04-2008, 01:11 AM
I'm siding with rvugt here. If you sent in picks for Rome as an alternate, you were planning on that being your tournament for the week. You know that's the risk you take being an alternate rather than switching tournaments to a challenger :shrug: Entry lists are updated pretty frequently and I think a lot of managers tell players when they sign up like, "Hey you are likely not going to play here, you might want to check out a challenger" so that's the choice they made :shrug:

FiBeR
05-04-2008, 01:12 AM

05-04-2008, 01:13 AM

That's the player's choice when they decided not to switch events when they saw they were an alternate. They decided to take their chances :shrug:

if there was room some other place they should have switched before the deadline just like everyone else :shrug:

FiBeR
05-04-2008, 01:53 AM
not every player knows all the rules, moreover, what's the deal with not letting a player who couldnt play on the tournament who wanted to play play another tournament where there is room?..

Qualy draw in that case should have been expanded if possible (im not awared it was or not possible.. but still it wasnt discussed :shrug:) expanding qualy draws have been done that before

it is not entirely the players' fault (neither the manager's).. let's say it's too many people playing's fault..

if draws were expanded in the past, why not now then? around 14 alternatives + 7 withdrew (21 total signed up).. can you blame those 14 for trying to play their tournament and then not succeeding in playing without having the chance? If you were an alternative you wouldnt want to not play.. knowing in general, when you sign up and end alternative, switching will turn you into a LE dropping to the bottom of the list on that tourney you re switching..

will you take a chance to swap from an alternative list to probably an alternative list in another tourney as LE? :shrug: not 100% fair either... so i think it is kinda fair to allow switching in these cases, but i think a rule has to come here about these cases :p

but i also see why people shouldnt let others play :shrug: nevertheless..as i said before..im all for players playing, rather than wasting byes

- On Sunday evening after seeing the entry lists, players that aren't among the 28 direct entries, can move to another tournament which has free places or decide not to move and play the qualies there (only 1 change is allowed, still on ranking but late entries - LE's will go to the bottom of the entry list)
- Unranked players will be listed in the order of commitment
- Friday is the deadline (the exact time is up to the tournament manager) for changes and the draws are made after that for qualies and md

Looks like a rule to me? :shrug: This player didn't change in time. They are attempting to change on Saturday :shrug:

FiBeR
05-04-2008, 02:54 AM
1. it says nothing about alt/switching in rules
2. unwritten rule goes if there is empty spots, deadline can be extended
3. if it is up to the manager, and gutturnio is the manager, then he comes with the deadline time and he said he is ok with that.. so tricky there regarding this spot..


so we re back to the same place :rolls:

savesthedizzle
05-04-2008, 02:57 AM
The fact that it doesn't specify about alts to me, says that they are treated no differently than another player.

It does say the deadline is a time on FRIDAY however, and today is Saturday :p


I agree that maybe things could be made clearer, but I think you are also trying very hard to find ways around them ;)

My problem with this all is that a person sent picks in for Rome. Therefore they participated in Rome, and this would be participating for two events in one week. I would actually have less of a problem with it if they didn't send in anything for Rome. :shrug:

i just remember when i managed a tournament with less than 32 players, deadlines were extended so that the 32 spots were filled

after deadline.. if players still committed (and werent in any draw of any other tournament) they were accepted (and should be) til the spot 32 was filled..

I remember i was told so..i was told to allow that.. so im just saying this was done before

now.. the only difference here is that a player sent picks to rome, but didnt even make the draw

you must agree that if he hadnt send picks he/she would have been able to sign up for that tournament ..

now.. what we re really discussing is how valid is to accept a switching from someone who sent picks to a tournament..

you say "he sent, therefore that counts as playing that tournament"

i say "he didnt even make the draw ..he had no chance to have a match, therefore that doesnt count as playing that tournament"

:p i think we should at least agree with this and then agree to disagree ^^

Ray, I really can't understand how a player with any knowledge of TT or tennis in general can think they'd be allowed to sent picks to 2 tournaments per week. I suppose there should be an addendum saying, "No player may switch after Friday, even if you are an alternate," but it just seems common sense to me. Also, in regards to having an increase in players, I think most of the fun of playing is working your way up. There's nothing stopping a low ranked player from making a run in a Slam up through qualies. Lastly, I would think that they did have a chance to make the draw if they were an alternate, or if they didn't, why not??

FiBeR
05-04-2008, 03:33 AM
:shrug: i agree both, on the subject tim, i just keep seeing people commiting to 2 tournaments of the same week (casachallenger & portchach was an example, i saw you telling people they already committed at the other tourney..)

i know not knowing the rules, is player's fault, i just think if a player isnt in a draw (being alternative is not being in a draw) then he/she should be able to play another tournament

jess.. he/she had a chance but that chance relied on the fact of entering the draw depended exclusively on players "forgetting to send picks"

not on his/her own TT abilities.. but the fact players didnt send in picks..

i also think there is a great deal of fun in climbing up in the ch circuit first, :shrug:

i just see this: empty spots at a challenger => no name on any other draw on the same week => go for it and take those spots to make the draw full

but i also think in a way it is not 100% right.. as it doesnt sound right.. but then again it is an interent game and well.. those 5 have the final word :p

I never managed a tournament and maybe it is better if I start with one where there are not so many late entries due to withdrawals (Roland Garos is parallel). And maybe you don´t even need new managers.

I would appreciate it if you tell me whether you need me or not. :wavey:

2 questions:

first: Escude entered Marrakech CH today and now he wants to change the event. is this possible ?

2nd: when does the atp qualy start for Marrakech cause i can#t find anything till now

The official rule is: You can change one time! So I think it is possible, otherwise, just pretend that he was never in your challenger!

About the start, indeed, there is nothing on the tournament website! But I would say tomorrow! As the OOP is not on the ATP website or the official site, I don't know! But maybe it starts on sunday, because the Rabat final is on saturday, so they might not want to do that on the same day! But not sure at all!

I think we need a 2nd Challenger for the 1st week of RG.

Not sure ... Even if there are currently 16 alternates, all the players who will be in MD of Roland-Garros (Singles or Doubles) will be OUT of Izmir. I need to check tonight who are the potential candidates after results of Qualies 2nd Round, but, since we have 16 qualifiers in Singles and 8 pairs in Doubles, I guess that we should have at least 10 players currently in Izmir who will need to be OUT + the potential LL of Roland Garros, so the number of alternates should be finally very small. ;)

One of the objectives of the TT Board was that any player should be able to play a tournament each week, which could not be the case next week because there is only one challenger tournament.

If there are still some alternates tomorrow evening (after withdrawal of players qualified for MD at Roland-Garros), should I extend the qualifying draw at Izmir to 32 spots, so that there would be 3 qualifying rounds (with lots of byes in first round) ? :confused:

I have a few questions will (LL), Roland Garros and Izmir:

- if a player plays qualies today in Izmir and is accepted as (LL) at Roland Garros (we will know that on Sunday morning), I guess that if he wins in First Round qualy at Izmir, he will have to withdraw from Izmir and his 2nd Round qualy opponent will win by w.o. His losing first round qualy opponent will not be allowed to play 2nd Round. Am I right ?

- if a player being currently accepted in MD at Izmir is accepted as (LL) at Roland Garros, I guess he will have to withdraw from MD and will be replaced by (LL) at Izmir.
- if a player has a Doubles partner at Izmir and is accepted as (LL) at Roland Garros, his Doubles Team will have to w.o at Izmir and be possibly replaced by (LL) Team if the draw is made. His partner will not be able to find a new partner or could it be possible that he proposes a "backup" partner ?

Am I right ? :confused:

Can I replace the deadline for Yuba City? There are only +-15 commitments so far.

Or have I to count all the next entries as late ?

There's a tuesday start in Yuba City, can I replace the first or the second deadline to SUnday evening as there are not 32 players ?

In general never change the first deadline, it's called a deadline for a reason.
Commitments after Sunday 25th May 6:00pm CET should be considered "LE".
There's not much wrong with LE's, you will get a lot more LE entries as people lose in RG and want to play.

If there isn't enough people, it won't matter if they're put on the entry list as a LE :p

:wavey: If you could, for the future for rankings and for tournaments in general, I'd prefer to be listed for France instead of the US. Merci! :)

Hello :wavey:

If you can't find somebody for Bytom, I could manage it, but I allready have 2 tournament this month. So if you find somebody please give it to him, in the other case I'm available.

It's not like I want to take the place of other managers, just want to help if needed. :)

There are a couple of players for Fürth challenger still in the main draw in Roland Garros.

Fürth qualifacation matches start on sunday and main draw matches on tuesday.

2nd deadline for Fürth is friday 6. pm cet.

Could the 2nd deadline be extended from friday to saturday (like last week in Izmir)?

I supose I can also extend Yuba City deadline from Friday to Saturday ?

Can players who are still playing Roland Garros on Monday play in Yuba City on Tuesday or do they have to be out on Sunday at last ?

Thanks :)
