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

hehe.. you must be kind of new.. linus is chinese :worship: she has been around quite long..it's like when i had the english flag for a month or so .. :p it is kind of known that im from argentina

excalibur had for around 2 months the vatican flag.. jeronimo has the french flag, etc.. that doesnt mean players are from another nationality

if it was that way, people would go right away to change for a south african flag to play and claim for an african spot

(wait, :rolls: i know a guy who has it :lol: but hasnt claimed it yet :rolls:)

can't understand "nvm", maybe it's "no voy managear" (I'm not going to manage), but if is not, I propose not giving the tournament to him, I think we already had enough. We can't accept his behaviour.

I'd guess that your PR will only expire when you actually use it for tournaments, so if you make the cut without it, then it won't count as having been used.

I'd guess that when you enter you'd have to post whether or not you are using your PR, and if your decision changes throughout the entry period, then post again what the changed decision is

that's up to the manager.. if the draw isnt out then it is kind of "interpretation" of the manager if he/she (in this case he) should accept that commitment :p

if it is after deadline but draws arent ready, i might have taken it :)

regarding "out", i think any player can withdraw at any moment :shrug: arent real players withdrawing all the time too? :lol: and in a sense, if you think of it.. Lucky Losers replace player "withdrawing" by not showing up on time to the start of tournament :p so id wipe that player out of the entry list :)

I am not part of the board but I would say that, as long as the draw has not been made, it should be still tolerated. Furthermore, Lexington challenger deadline has been extended until tomorrow because it had only 15 players. So, if for instance, the change of Mr Brightside from Toronto to Lexington is refused, Lexington tournament may not occur because of that.

FiBeR
07-18-2008, 08:48 PM
it is up to the manager actually..but in the past managers have let "slip" the deadline for a while, those less flexible

there have been others which have been not as flexible, who took those late commitments as "doubles late entries"

and there have been managers not flexible at all not accepting them :p

i think that depends entirely of the manager

if i understand this post right.. a player withdrew past the deadline of a tournament to join a tournament which had less than 16 players signed up

if this is correct, then this is the situation to have in mind:
when a tournament has less than 32 players, the deadline of that tournament is extended until the day before the start of the tournament (monday) or until 32 players are signed up if it passes from the friday deadline :p

the friday deadline is done so as to think about doing the qualy draw, since a tournament with less than 32 players dont need qualies, then deadline can be moved to..Sunday

:)

regarding players withdrawn after deadline.. since the draw isnt done, and players arent scheduled to play, i see no trouble in allowing those players to move :lol: they re not suppossed to send in picks

same with Alternatives.. even if qualy draws are done, if they re not in the draw, they can remove themselves from the entry list (by announcing it, of course) and join that tourney :)

2. write 'using PR if needed' or something along those lines

I've got a question for the board :

Why are we using 9th June rankins for the Olympic Games and not the normal 2 weeks before start off tournament rankings ?

I'm very disappointed becaus I won lot off places last month and now I parbably won't be able to compete for doubles.

I don't want to be agressive or something , just want to know why we are not using the normal ranks .

Thanks

I have a doubt.

There was a doubles commitment in my tourney on July 19th. And the 1st deadline was on July 20th. So I didn't add them to the doubles entry list and either in the draw (there was no confirmation by them during the whole doubles commitment period). But this morning they're asking why I didn't put them in the draw, I gave them the reasons. But now they're asking they should be placed as LL's. Because there are 16 teams in the tourney. So should it be fair to considered them as LLs or not? :wavey:

Ok,I have some doubts about PTS :scratch:

For example Player A picks Federer to win 7-5,first set.If he loses the set 5-7,does that still count as a correct score for player A? :confused: Basically I'm interested if the scoreline is considered correctly if it is won by the correct player.

And lets say Player A has 6-3 7-5 and player B 7-5 6-3 and the match ends 6-3 7-5,is the match still tied after that or Player A wins because he predicted a correct score for the particular set?

Okay in the first situation, no it doesn't count. It has to be won by the correct player for it to count :D

In the second situation, it's tied still. In the real PTS game on MTF the scoring is different but in the TT PTS system you do not get extra points for having the sets in the correct position :)

Pavkata has been my assistant manager this week and did a great job.

I'm not saying you have to give this one to him, but if you don't find anybody else I think he's able to run it. And as the US Open Qualification will probably start on Tuesday, I could help him with the qualification and first round if he needs some help).

If maybe somebody wants to run doubles qualification, I could do doubles MD. During the qualification, I will have to work untill 11AM US Open time and I won't be able to post diffs before 1PM US Open time. (Don't worry, I'll solve this for the singles diffs)

But for the Main draw , I've got two weeks off those weeks and only have to give training on monday, wednesday, friday and saturday between 6PM and 8PM CET (12PM and 2PM US Open time). That's all I've got to do :rolleyes:. If you don't find a doubles partner I'm not afraid to take doubles too. Forever-Delayed will run half off the singles draw .

I've run Vancouver and PAW Cincinnati this week, and I think the work I did for PAW is equal to 2 challengers (togheter 3/4 grandslam :p). And I like TT much more :p.

But it's way better to find a manager for it offcourse. Where is Fiber ? Raaaaaay ? I hope we find a manager quickly!

One of the people playing in Samarkand is complaining about the draw, because there are only two matches and the rest are bye-s, and he thinks that all the top-ranked 14 players should get a bye, and the lowest ranked play against each other in the first round. But I'm telling him that only the seeded players (8) get automatically a bye, and all the rest are drawn randomly, as I did.
Who is right?
Should I make a new draw, or did I do it correctly?
Thanks in advance :)

but I don't see how its compromising though - beyond the seeds and their byes, the opponents/byes should be randomly drawn

I guess having that rule kinda makes sure that managers aren't forced to answer false cheating accusations... I just think random drawing is better

In Doubles Tennis Tipping, I am using the ATP rules, which is that byes are selected by ranking for Seeded players. Then, for non-seeded players, this is randomly choosen.

Having a bye in first round is not necessarily an advantadge in terms of points, according to ATP rules. Because if you lose in second round after getting a bye in first round, you will get the points of a first round loser. If you lose in second roung after winning your first round, you will get the points of a second round loser.

In addition, I guess that participants play Tennis Tipping to play and not to have byes. So, having a bye in first round is equivalent to playing against an opponent not sending picks. This is not very interesting stuff ...

What's to explain? - TT is an MTF game therefore if you're banned from MTF you can't play TT. It's not up to us to judge whether a ban is unfair or not!

We found out during the final that he had been banned since the QF and had been sending his picks via email so he should not have been playing in the tournament since that point.

The same has happended previously with banned users and will happen again.

It was only a 5 day ban, that's why I feel he's unlucky.

I think the new rule should be anyone banned for longer than 1 week is unable to play. Obviously someone that has been banned only 5 days hasn't done anything particularly serious anyway. It seems harsh to deprive him of a final spot.

Edit - or how about they're allowed to finish the tournament they're currently playing, but not commit to any new ones :shrug:

I'm not a board member, but I think the best solution would be to have Wednesday as the TT QF for both singles and doubles -- it's logical because all second round matches are played today (tournament ends of Saturday). The QF can't be two days because the QF matches from the tournament will be played tomorrow which is the TT SF. This is normal for almost all TT tournaments.

The issue about the many schedule changes about whether Monday or Tuesday was counted for the doubles QF is difficult -- many things went wrong.

Yes, the doubles TT went from bad to worse since day 1, and I would say that it is my fault, because I tried to accept everyone's ideas to make things more interesting... And now I'm very confused and have no idea what I should do :help:

No, we have 2 missing picks - that's two teams with 1 pick only, but only one of the teams would have played 1/2 finals...
Together with Tankman we decided, after thoroughly going through the picks of everyone, that it would be most fair if we have Tuesday (only) as QF, then we can have semis and final with 2 days of play...
Does that sound ok?

if they committed to New Haven before 6pm CET today and they reach Saturday in Washington by win or rain, they get the SE.

btw, there is a special thread about SEs - http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=114107

Only Salum has asked for a SE, does that mean that the rest of the guys cannot get one?
Sorry for being a pain in the hole:retard:

there is no need to ask :lol: if they committed and they aren't in Main Draw, they're getting SE automatically.

Hey everyonem another annoying question:
Is the LL list determined by the last round of qualis only, or all qualies matches?
Thanks :wavey:

There was a discussion last week concerning byes in firsts rounds.

Now what do I do in Geneva in doubles? There are 9 entries in doubles. When I do the draw, should I give a bye to the 7 best ranked teams and let the worst ranked teams play each other or should only the first 4 seeded teams get a bye and the rest byes are drawn randomly?

Since there is only one match in doubles first round should I change the schedule (2-day first round to 1-day first round) or should I keep it as it is?

Letting the worst ranked teams play eachother seems to be the defacto standard for TT.

You could do that, but I personally I probably wouldn't to avoid confusion (someone might assume doubles starts Wednesday).

^^^ yeah keep it as is - changes in the schedule can definitely shake things up a bit. Samarkand case in point - we gave sufficient notice imho but people were confused by the schedule and we almost had to cancel the doubles :lol:

Honestly speaking I had that in mind, that´s because I asked for it. :p

Allthough I think your changing of the schedule had one big disadvantage: If you have a bye in singles in first round you might not send picks for the first day, you might not even look in the theat. But if I change the schedule for the 2nd day even those who had byes in first round singles would at least have sent picks .

But I will stick to the former schedule, which will make it a lot easier for me anyway, as I will have to look out for fewer differences :p

I'm wondering the same. Actually I don't think there was mentioned anywhere that it would be a one-day round. Only in the schedule that it would be a 2 day round. I know I'm losing if it is not a 2 day round, but also otherwise, I would say it has to be a 2 day round. Please board, tell us what you think!

the manager can change the schedule, but not after posting the oop

I think it should stay as a 2-day round

hell of a trouble , i see after this :scared:

many players last night asked me about this stuff and i told them it was a one day round :tape:

i dont wanna be there when they find out it was a 2 day round and they didnt even send picks :rolls:

of course i dont blame managers.. it is enough trouble counting picks and dealing with so many people on a GS :tape: but i can see trouble coming :p

tsk tsk ray... why do you always have to get involved? look what you've done ;) :p

anyway in all seriousness - does it have to be a two-day round? there might be a case for a one-day round if enough people haven't sent picks under that assumption :shrug:

rvugt
08-21-2008, 03:09 PM
Well, you know, I won after all in a 1-dayround, so I agree with making it a 1 day round ;)!
But I think the schedule was clear and actually it only went wrong after everybody sent his/her picks yesterday and that is too late to change the schedule. And as always, R2 of qualifying is always a 2 day round and it is also in the schedule on the first page. So we'll see, but I think fairest is to have a 2-day-round!

I have now 33 commitments for Düsseldorf CH. If it should stay like that, there will be one qualifying match between nr. 32 and 33, right? (if all participants are out of USO which is unlikely...). But what happens if there are LE's? Then no. 31 of commitment list will have do play qualies as well?

I just need a confirmation for that ;)

I have a question :

I forgot to put Duncan/JeffCandoi on the doubles entry list. I don't know how it could happen, but it did. They've only seen it now they are not in the list...

What do I have to do ? Should I make them first alternate or something like that ?

BTW: I'll make up Orleans thread tomorrow , I've been away last 2 days

The happenings when a "missed" team is added to the main draw at the last minute really bugs me -- I think there's a lot of responsibility to the missed team, they should have noticed that they were not in the entry list, they had all week to notice...now a team that was fairly in the main draw potentially misses out. I do not agree with the current board policy in these cases.
