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 :)

I guess the question is also valid for Furth tournament, which also starts on Tuesday. :angel:

*question for board*

Jeronimo (how come it doesnt surprise me :p) missed 1 match in his pm.. -funny he being the first to send after causing such a mess, he goes and misses a match-

Ive already pmed it when i opened it (a couple of hours ago) but he is probably asleep

should i not post diffs til he sends that missing pick?

(i want to know mainly because this is a common thing, and ive pmed players cant remember how many times during the week because of missing picks)

what should be the policy about players missing 1 or 2 picks?

Labamba
05-31-2008, 10:29 AM
you can post the diffs

missing one match is not the same thing as having late picks

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. :)

I am kind of worried about Bytom, last year (when it wasn't used for TT) information and updates on the ATP site were very poor and sporadic and they even had serious inconsistencies in the draw involving qualifiers that were never cleared up (so some actual main draw match results are forever in doubt).

There is a thread in this sub-forum with the details (I think the rules thread), the number of ranking points depends on the prize money in the challenger, and it's not the same as the real ATP ranking points. (Edit: yes there is a table in one of the first posts of the Rules thread).

Entry lists are based on rankings from two weeks before the main draw, so Monday 16 June.

sign him up for singles too

Hi TT Board,

I think that the commitment deadlines for Wimbledon TT were very ambiguous and it seems that there are lots of complaints about that. My point of view is that Fact Sheet should be the reference and not even the discussion threads in the message. To be able to have an agreement and avoid frustration, I would suggest the following:

- accept all participants having committed before deadline (Sunday 18:00 CET).
- redo the draw of qualifying.

And, to be able to avoid having surprises for players thinking they should not send picks on Monday because they have a bye with initial draw, postpone first round qualifying to Tuesday.

Since Wimbledon is a very important tournament, it is a shame that some highly ranked players (e.g. marcelwks) would not be able to participate.

What is your view about it ? ;)
I think a final decision has to be taken asap.

Thanks :wavey:

TankingTheSet
06-15-2008, 05:24 PM
The deadline of midnight Saturday was in the thread title for days, so I think it was pretty obvious. If the fact-sheet managed by the co-manager had been updated, I think the players that were late would still have been late (that's just the nature of a very early start, some people will be too late).

TankingTheSet
06-15-2008, 05:55 PM
One more thing, I think there should be a clear rule that players have to commit themselves to TT tournaments. It's logical. Until now there was no clear rule, so when Aleka says "In, deea too" it should be accepted, but I think for the future there should be a rule that everyone must personally commit to the tournament.

I've had to collect forwarded picks in good faith to determine the results.

Ok, really sorry, but without computer it will be really tough to forward picks you know! And also, it might be possible that people send their picks to the right person and read the thread, but that's my opinion! Well, if you don't trust, please be free to let someone take over Cordoba, I'm not so reliable as you see! Or give me another chance!

2 players who play each other in Reggio Emilia final qualy round didnt send picks,so I guess the higher ranked player should advance to the MD?

a) Well in this case it's a tie, so I believe it should go back to CB and the usual tie-breaking methods since there were earlier rounds. Checking the thread it seems a lot of players had byes... if they both had first round byes then it would be ranking, but if one of them sent picks for the first round, then they would win on CB.... I think :)

b) I'm pretty sure that if they get in as LL-ers in Wimbledon then they should be replaced by LL-ers in Reggio Emilia :scratch:

rule #17 about life Jeronimo:

Dont expect to get everything you want to..learn to deal with this fact


personal advise: manage a couple more challengers, get used to it, clean your image and prove those who criticize you wrong, build up experience, and then ask for ATP tourneys.. (but yeah, i know, too much work, you dont need to prove anyone anything, blabla :p -but in the end, you kinda do if you want to get away with what you want-)

at the end of the day you had to give it to me anyway, but well.. i mean, you were learning.. and you still are (which is exactly our point)

the other tourney you were 1/2 singles manager i think :p

i dont say you re not a good manager ,i say you need more experience, you need to do challengers, and you need to get practise with the rules specially about tie breaks and stuff.. you seem to not know them 100% correctly (and on that spot = WTAw is not MTF.. i dont manage in WTAw because i know i dont know the TB rules properly :shrug:) as well as other tiny rules.. i mean, its nothing you couldnt learn.. if you read the rules thread page 1, around 2 or 3 times :p

i think you have potential, but you gotta work hard for it.. which is something you dont enjoy that much.. in the sense you dont think in the long run, you want everything now, instead of build it up from the bottom.. anyway, too philosophical for a TT managers thread

bottomline: read what we all are telling you, ..i think -jokes and kidding aside- you need more management experience.. that's a fact, and it aint gonna change in time til you manage a couple more challengers successfully

look mate you're going to have to disregard your WTA record

think of it this way - in Australia for example we don't recognise the academic qualifications of some countries because they don't meet our standards. So even if someone had a degree with honours in say Somalia, they'd probably have to start all over again in Australia.

same here - whatever you might have managed in WTAWorld, you screwed up here and you need to prove to us here that you can manage ATP TT tournaments - a lot of us don't know about and probably don't care about WTAWorld :p Once you can manage SMALLER tournaments (Challengers or 32 player Intl Series) then you can possibly move up.

That's because on WTAW they expect very little from their managers and it's okay if you don't know the TB rules on WTAW because almost nobody does :p

Hey guys, I was thinking whether it would be possible for me to try and be an assistant manager in some challenges (any time zone would do), just to see whether I'm any good at it, or is it just enthusiasm :)


Is there any chance, or should I go f**k myself :haha: just kidding

:lol:

no you don't need to do that :devil: :p

I would say aim higher and ask to be a primary manager for a CH - and get an experienced manager as an assistant. If you pick the right tourney I could help you, but I'm sure there are plenty of great managers out there who can be of assistance :)

and enthusiasm is good :D - it's all you need to begin with - you learn the rules as you go

This bit was decided before the season:

6. The Tennis Event at the 2008 Olympics

- Rankings as of 9 June 2008 will be used to select players eligible for direct acceptance in singles and doubles (follow the ITF). 64-player singles draw, 32-team doubles draw. More rules will be decided when the ITF announces theirs.

The undecided matters are the forming of doubles teams and the possible removal of country limitations on number of players taking part. These questions will be answered in the near future.

Why are the ranking from a month ago used for the Olympics?

That is the rule used in real ATP. My personal opinion is that, to make TT as attractive as possible, we should apply the same rule as in real ATP as much as possible.

So, that is why I would also push for a limitation of 4 players per country. (even if that will not allow me to play this tournament since I was French number 7 on June 9th and I am currently French number 4 :p).

TT Participants would have to commit and TT Manager will have to indicate regularly what is the cut for the overall tournament draw and what is the cut per country.

For the Doubles part, I would also vote for 1 or 2 pairs per country made of the up to 4 country players having committed in TT Singles. ;)

Tzar
07-10-2008, 10:03 PM
1 pair per country should be enough so countries like mine for example can participate ;) (2 venezuelans on TT)

If we go with the actual rules of the Olympic games then:

Maximum of 4 singles players per country, ordered by ranking
Maximum of 6 players per country, counting both singles and doubles participants
Players with a top 10 ranking in singles/doubles are automatically signed up for singles/doubles, providing they can find a partner, and the 6 players per country rule is breached (which wouldn't apply)

I think this has the singles cut at 72, meaning Alonsofz is the last player to make the cut (including Maldini and his protected ranking).

Qualifying? Don't think there's enough space for it to work, as although you could squeeze it in on the first day, there wouldn't be enough matches to predict by the end of the tournament, and with the country player limit, not sure how many people would be available to play qualifying anyway

Rules of the ATP are that entry is based on June 9th, so you were rank 72.

With the limitation of 4 players per country for Singles, the following players in bold better ranked than you cannot make the cut if everybody commits:

Brazil: Keqtqiadv, Tytta!, GlennMirnyi, Netin!, Robin Hood (60)

Great Britain: Greatkingrat, Forever-Delayed, Alansk, Marksman, Invu2day (43), Guille&Tati4life (50) , PaulHopkins (58)

USA: CoreySchuky, Njnetswill, Allez-Alejo, Amaris, Pigpen Stinks (68),

Germany: TommyB, KalleOnAir, ZackBusner, Bjorki, JMG (34), Hotzenplotz (38), Bavaria100 (44)

Poland: Tomek., Marcelwks, Vicek, Wojtek, Nathaliia (71)

So, you are 63th in Entry Ranking. 64th player to make the theoretical cut is Rik. ranked 77 (if no WC is given to an African player).

:angel:

But, I guess that some of the top 77 players will want to play Washington so the cut may be a little bit higher.

Not sure how much time I'll have, but if no-one else wants the US Open, I'll help to run some of it.

Other tournaments? I'll take one of the european challengers (not from the first 2 weeks of September though), maybe Segovia as the preference, with Szczecin and Mons as back ups.

Rules of the ATP are that entry is based on June 9th, so you were rank 72.


TT Rules are entry based on rankings 2 weeks before the tournament, so I think this will also be used for Olympics?

Please answer my last question and also Overlord already sent his picks with only the 3 matches from Amersfoort OOP :tape:

Then just use the 3 matches, it's easier that way.

but what about doubles?

is it DC captain duty to pick teams? people should team up with whoever they want?

what's up with that?

im a top 60 player in doubles too..but im 5th.. but i team up with the 4th as a regular partner.. of course i want to team up with manu86 because i can and im regular partner.. should we let players team up with whoever they want? or what's up?

if they try to send picks to "Jeronimo", they'll get this error message:

linus should make the cut with no problem :yeah:
sharpeirob :worship:


i just find that linus' flag is Cuba and in his/her Profile, the "Country / Nacionalidad" writes "Cuba", so i don't know he/she plays OG TT for China or Cuba = =!
so if he/she plays OG TT for Cuba, whether there is a WC for Chinese player?:p

In Amersfoort qualifying final round marr and kai_soad where tied in everything, even the game difference, so I think I should look at the CB but marr had a bye and didn't send picks for first round, do I still look at the CB?

Oops yes only ranking comes after GD. No harm done since they were tied but I'll watch it in the future :) Thanks :)
