If you want to run a tournament , please post it here . I'd like to have a "back-up manager" for Barcalone/Munich , I'm not sure I'll be able to run this one.

If nobody volunteers for that tournament, I can be manager for Rome except that I won't be able to publish diffs from Monday to Wednesday included.

Could you please help me posting these diffs during this tournament ?
If you wish, we can also share some other managers activities based on your availability :p

Is there any volunteer to manage DTT Monte Carlo ? :wavey:

I guess that to give enough time for commitment, the thread should be opened no later than Friday.

If nobody volunteers, I can run this one but I won't be able to publish diffs when matches begin from Monday to Friday (I will only be available after 20:00 CET).

I actually did this to have some new players

From now on, we'll put in the tournament thread if it's the only tournament off the week. When there are more tourneys in a week, we'll put it in the games thread. Okay ?

I really think this is a good idea.

2 weeks ago I won Monte Carlo and noone seems to have noticed that at that time. :)

It´s not that I want to be praised (but you can keep doing that :)), but if these threats are on the pages of the tournaments a lot more people will regularly attend them. The number of people forgetting to pick will probably get down as well. If only a few people post regularly in the weekly dtt threat one tends to forget about this game.
This nearly happened to me, allthough I was playing the final :p

Overall, I agree with you but I think that we should be consistent and not saying that we should post in the thread of the tournament when there is one big tournament and in the games thread when there is more than one tournament. This would add confusion. I would prefer that we post in the directory of the main tournament of the week.

I am also thinking about some other things which could bring more players in the game and prevent from players forgetting to post picks:

- put more emphasis on the ranking and especially focus on the "DTT Doubles Race". If we say that the 8 best pairs will be qualified for the DTT Masters at the end of the week, this could bring more attraction.
- give priority to matches on the main tournament of the week and grant points based on this main tournament (having for all other weeks than MS and GS always the same points (250 ...) is not very reflecting reality.
- in the DTT template, have a section with "Hall of Fame" reminding the winners and finalists of the previous weeks and the statistics of the game so far.
- improve quality in the management of the tournaments:
- post OOP early enough so that players have time to submit it (typically before 22:00 CET for European tournaments).
- post diffs as soon as matches have started.
- make a quick report of the DTT Matches of the Day.
- Stop including challenger matches. Though I am very interested by these matches, I think that many players would prefer to focus on matches of the main Tour.


Another key thing is that the number of volunteers to be DTT Manager is very low, which makes it quite difficult to handle week after week (especially for Drikke who has to be manager nearly 50% of time). Maybe, we should focus more on weeks with important tournaments and skip some other weeks for DTT.

Feedbacks are welcome. :wavey:

Don't agree, because there will be less tourneys and the few which will be hold can be hold with this point system.

- in the DTT template, have a section with "Hall of Fame" reminding the winners and finalists of the previous weeks and the statistics of the game so far.

Okay for me if anyone wants to do this, I don't have time to do this now, maybe in a month.

- improve quality in the management of the tournaments:

I can't post difs right now due to school, I've to go to school one more month, then my managing will improve

- post OOP early enough so that players have time to submit it (typically before 22:00 CET for European tournaments).
- post diffs as soon as matches have started.
See previous

Yeah, at the moment it's not very fun, like now in Hamburg I can't post diffs on 3 days and that's just not fun.

In the week of Queens I'll be free, so I can run that one, but I'll write you down as assistant manager.

Can I write you down as Wimbledon (Assistant) manager? As trucul likes to run it, can you be assistant , then I've got some free weeks. As trucul doesn't want it, do you want to be manager and me assistant ?

If I compare to previous years, Doubles competition at the French will only start on Wednesday (first days are fully booked with Singles matches):

http://www.quarterback.fr/fichiers/pdf/evenements/tennis/rg/pp-rg2007.pdf

The first week of French Open, I will be managing TT Izmir, so it will be difficult for me to find time for DTT Comments and make diffs unfortunately. I can try however DTT comments tentatively the first week (short ones) and more detailed ones the second week.

Regarding Wimbledon, of course, I am interested to run it :cool: but, as I will be working, I will need somebody to publish diffs when matches start from Monday to Friday (I can do it during the week-ends).

We have decided last month to play only a selection of tournaments. Only play when it's a big tournament or much tournaments in a week. When there are more commitment and more managers (it's growing allready) then we can maybe decide to play a tournament every week again.

There is one thing I wanted to have your opinion about Rankings. As we are celebrating this week the 10th tournament (actually the 11th if we consider Davis Cup but Davis Cup matches did not award point), we will soon have to decide what will be the ranking rule for DTT Singles and Doubles.

As we try to stick as much as possible to reality, my understanding is to have the ranking based on the 14th best results of each player (whatever the tournament, not mandatory to include Grand Slams or Masters Series) over the last 52 weeks. The Teams Doubles Race will be based also on best 14 results of the year per team.

This is based on rules available here:

http://www.atptennis.com/en/players/information/rankfaq.asp

As Canada will be the 14th tournament in DTT history, this means that after Cincinnati, the worst result of DTT players having played all DTT events will not be counted.

Does it sound OK for you ?

trucul
06-15-2008, 08:15 AM
I have another question related to the Entry List for DTT Doubles. In ATP Rules, we have the following:


http://www.frankymoser.de/ATP_Rulebook.pdf

Page 76:

Doubles Main Draw. Direct Acceptance shall be in following order: Teams composed of players in either the INDESIT ATP Entry Rankings (Singles) or ATP Doubles Entry Rankings (Doubles). The combined position of the two players (using best Singles or Doubles Entry Ranking) shall be added together and the total used to determine the direct acceptances.

...

Seeds: Seeded teams will be determined by using the combined doubles rankings of the 2 players. Ties shall be broken as follows:
- The teams with the fewest events played is positioned higher.
- the teams with the highest number of points is positioned higher.

Should we try to stick with ATP Rules ? As long as there are no qualifying matches in Doubles DTT, this has no impact (Direct entry order is useless) but, who knows, if one day, we have to do that, it could be nice to clarify the rules. ;)

Drikke
06-15-2008, 11:13 AM

Yes because, since there is one DTT tournament per week (so far, as long as we don't have more players), the DTT Manager plays the tournament. So, assistant manager is there at least to collect his picks and picks of his opponents.

Yves.

Alright. So you choose one tournament each week. In this case cause it's a 500 pointer.

The name of the DTT tournament selected is the one with highest prize money but picks may include all tournaments being played that week (if this is compatible with timezone). For instance, for week 1, Doha is the name of DTT Tournament but it will include matches from Chennai and Brisbane. But, we try to include picks from the same timezone approximately, so I guess that in the first days, only matches of Doha and Chennai will have to be picked. For Brisbane, one Final and maybe Semi-Final will have to be picked.

But, if some DTT qualies have to be played (which was rarely the case in 2008 but I feel that in 2009, more players play DTT), we might consider having day 1 at Brisbane for DTT qualies.

Hello everybody,

it seems that I have seen many complaints in the previous days related to new DTT rules + some top DTT players considering retirement (diego36arg today but also Björki, Drikke being very busy, Alex having some difficulties to manage Sydney, ...).

I think it is time to find a way to be less time consuming for this game for DTT managers and players. Like the majority of you, I am also a TT player (I am also trying women TT since beginning of year) but also PAW, FITD player and I don't think that DTT is one of the priority games (but maybe this is the case, I would be very glad about that).

That is why I think it is time (based on our experience since beginning of the year with new rules) to reconsider DTT rules and maybe the way this game is played.

Do not hesitate to suggest some othe enhancements (even the craziest ones !) with still an objective to keep DTT attractive but less time consuming.

You will find hereunder some thoughts I have.

trucul
01-13-2009, 08:44 PM
First thing is about DTT tournaments themselves. The average number of players is currently around 30 per week which is good, but with some players not sending picks on time in the early rounds. Note also the complexity for DTT Managers to know whether or not they should set up qualies and on which matches should qualies be based based on 3 OOP of tournaments of the week. That is a real nightmare, especially if timezone of tournaments is not compatible with timezone of manager.

What I would suggest is following thing:

- be inspire to reality. In real life, ATP doubles players can be spread into 2 categories:
- the Singles players who consider Doubles as a way to warm up for their singles matches and as a way to keep an interest and an objective in the tournament they attend if they are out very soon in Singles.
- the Doubles specialists who do not play singles at all (or at a very modest level).

In DTT, I guess this is the same as with TT. Some DTT players consider this game as a good way to play TT once they are out of TT competition, some others consider DTT as a regular activity with great interest because they are well ranked in DTT and have a poor rank in TT (or are suspended in TT like diego36arg like year).

In real life, Doubles matches include only 16 spots for a tournament so that the number of matches is limited.

That is why I would suggest to have tournament entries (ATP 200 and 500) with only 16 players (14 being accepted in MD and 2 qualifiers) for DTT Singles and 8 pairs for DTT Doubles (7 accepted in MD + 1 qualifier). And the picks would only be based on the specific tournament.

For instance, this week, there would have been one DTT Sydney based on picks of Sydney matches and one DTT Auckland based on picks of Auckland matches. Entry acceptance would be the same as the one of TT.
For weeks where there are ATP 1000, entries would be 32 players (28 accepted in MD + 4 qualifiers).
For Grand Slam weeks, 64 players in MD.

This would allow in for ATP 200 / 500 to start tournament a little bit later (on Monday ?) for players being in MD and focus on TT matches on Monday. For DTT manager, this would be less matches to handle but, of course, this would require one manager per tournament, so more than 1 manager per week.

trucul
01-13-2009, 08:47 PM
Then, regarding deadline and publishment of diffs, I think we all agree rule set in place in TT is unfair and we should come back to rule of last year.

I would like to have a small update anyway to the rule of last year to ease the job of DTT managers.

Assume you have following OOP in a tournament:

14:00 CET: Federer vs. Nadal
followed by Nestor/Zimonjic vs. Bryan/Bryan.

=============

Deadline will be by default "when matches start" but starting from 14:00 CET, if all picks are available to the DTT Manager, it will not be possible for DTT players to change their picks, which means that, once DTT Manager has picks from everybody, he can publish diffs without waiting for matches to start.

Of course, if some diffs are missing, DTT Manager will have to wait for matches to start before publishing diffs.

Regarding late picks, we can come back to rule of last year (consider late picks only for matches having already started).

In order not to penalize doubles partner who has sent picks, I am also thinking about a joker rule which would be "if your partner has not sent picks or sends late picks", his picks can be replaced by your picks (for doubles only, not singles). However, your partner will not get DTT points for this match (only you) if your team wins.

Björki

Trucul I dont consider retirement (unless I really can't win matches anymore) :awww:

I dont like it, to use the partners picks if someone is late. It's really their fault.

01-13-2009, 08:56 PM
Regarding publishment of diffs and results by DTT Manager, you can see that last week, I found eaasier to publish results in format +1:00 instead of the real score. This is based on my way of counting diffs (I am not using Excel sheet and doing it manually). However, I think that publishment of diffs is quite time consuming (if you are using Excel sheet, you need to dump PMs in Excel format; if you are not using Excel sheet like me, you need to copy/paste PM in a file and build manually your diffs. Very difficult especially when picks come just before deadline and when you are at work office.

I was thinking about having a way to send picks to a mailbox (either a generic account in MTF like DTT_Game or an account under hotmail ...). The password of this account would be owned by a DTT Manager, so only this manager could access mailbox. When deadline is reached, this DTT Manager could publish password so that everybody could consult this account and make its own diffs. That would require that we have a minimum of discipline (no spam to send to this account, when you are connected, do not erase mails ...). I don't know if possible but we could modify properties of this account to make it read-only at some times, only viewable during some periods of time. Well, maybe also, a kind of site with some basic javascript of VBscript could do that but I am not expert on that.

Of course, that is what I meant 'when first doubles match start' which means in my example when "Nestor/Zimonjic match starts". But, we never know .. Since Nadal/Federer may not be played because of w.o., in theory, to secure things, all DTT players should send their picks between 14:00 CET. So, if all picks are there at 14:00 CET, DTT manager should be allowed to publish diffs at that time if this is more convenient for him.

Regarding your remark about "it is their fault", I agree. But, for instance, I am out this week in Doubles because of diego36arg not sending picks even if we were +3 after day 1. And diego sent me his picks 2 hours after deadline. Of course, this should be exceptional (allowed only once in the tournament, and you could have penalties for that, eg. if you are tied, this should be first TB criterion before SRs) but it would help to keep the fun and be more tolerant with a player not sending picks (and not penalizing too much the partner). When I was in opposite situation, it is not fun for me to win by wo because one guy of opponent team did not send picks.

Of course, if you have alternate teams sending both picks, they should replace the team who has sent 0 or 1 pick. So, this "exceptional" rule does not apply on day 1 of first round of tournament (except if there is no alternate).

Sure, SR is always added also in the same manner:

00:00 SRs: +1:00

Of course, if we need to go to CB, I will have to count the real number of correct picks.

My opinions:

- The system should stay about the same like it is now (like TT more or less)
- Qualifying should be done on Saturdays and Sundays like in TT, but with the semifinals and finals of the week before (also challengers!). Then it is easier to manage.
- Deadline for picks. The new rule is easier for managers. If play (first doubles match according to OOP) starts at 3 AM CET, I can see if the manager says deadline is then and then it should be accepted that no more picks can be sent after that! On the other hand, if there is a delay due to whatever reason and the manager is around, then can also accept if they are sent later

Thanks for valuable remarks. Regarding qualifying on week-ends, this is difficult to put in place because, quite often, Saturday is considered as day of Doubles final, so we may have 2 or 3 matches only on Saturdays (even including Challengers) and no matches on Sundays. If we add Saturday + Sunday + Monday, we could have a decent number of matches for 2 rounds of qualies but that is not 100% guaranteed.

Regarding deadline for picks, new rule is easier for managers but it leads to too much frustration for the player who sends picks before match has started but is not accepted. With singles, this is easier because most of time deadline corresponds to first match being played in the day. In doubles, it is often difficult to give a firm deadline since matches are often after singles matches and are after a match which as a deadline. So, between this deadline and start of first Doubles match, we may have 1 to 2 hours which is enough to have frustration from players who send picks during that time. ;)

Do we already have so many players to have 2 rounds of qualies?

So what, if a doubles match is scheduled after a singles match, we calculate 1h30 after the match has started for the doubles match and set the deadline at that time.

Sorry I really dont agree. If someone doesnt send picks I'd not like if a pick from his doubles partner will count.

I am playing these games since the beginning and I only forget to send picks once last week because I thought I am out.

Usually OOP is out early so everyone should be able to send picks on time.

And of course you need a partner who cares about the game, if so he/she wont forget to send picks.

After discussion with DTT Board, the decision is that you have a 3 month suspension, so you will be able to play again April 20th for Barcelona DTT Tournament.

However, if you try again to cheat in any of MTF games before that date, your ban will be 2 years.

Hi Kai.

I think that we should avoid including challengers (even if Sunrise will have some high-level matches). I propose the following schedule, as I understand it will be a 32 doubles draw.

In DTT Singles, the current number of entries is around 37. There will be no qualies and the draw will be a 48, 56 or 64 draw depending on number of final entries.

For DTT Singles:

DTT Final ~ corresponds to Indian Wells SF and F. (3 matches)
DTT SF ~ corresponds to Indian Wells QF (4 matches)
DTT QF ~ corresponds to 6 matches of Indian Wells last 16.
DTT 3rd Round last 16 ~ corresponds to 2 matches of IW last 16 + 4 matches of IW 1st Round.
DTT 2nd Round last 32 ~ corresponds to 6 matches of IW 1st Round.
DTT 1st Round ~ corresponds to 6 matches of IW 1st Round.

In DTT Doubles, the current number of entries is around 16. There will be no qualies and the draw will be a 24, 28 or 32 draw depending on number of final entries.

For DTT Doubles:

DTT Final ~ corresponds to Indian Wells SF and F. (3 matches)
DTT SF ~ corresponds to Indian Wells QF (4 matches)
DTT QF ~ corresponds to 8 matches of Indian Wells last 16.
DTT 2nd Round last 16 ~ corresponds to 10 matches of IW 1st Round.
DTT 1st Round ~ corresponds to 6 matches of IW 1st Round.

Maybe, this will not match exactly with the days, so you can tune it a little bit but that is a rough idea ...

For entries, you should use March 2nd and for seeds March 9th (I still need to publish for Doubles DTT. Will do that asap).

I can be your assistant to receive picks of you and your opponents, if nevito cannot do it. :wavey:

Last but not least, I will open Miami thread today as well.

how much time do you take managing the tourney with the evita spreadsheet?

It is 2 to 3 times faster than before. What took time was the early rounds where there are still so many players not sending picks, so including late picks, replacing players by (LL) is still a little bit painful. Furthermore, I cannot copy/paste picks from players as they are (eg. Nestor/Zimonjic), because there is a bug when a / is entered, so I remove the / and second name.
Players sending Nestor/Zimonjic 2-0 6/4 6/4 ==> I need to replace by Nestor 6/4 6/4.

So, if the manager asks to send with correct format, it is just a matter of copy/pasting in right cells and everything is ready within less than 15 minutes. ;)

If there is no volunteer, I can continue management of upcoming tournaments but note that until mid-July, I won't be able to publish diffs when matches start.

For next week at Queen's, I don't know if somebody (Alex, Peggy or somebody else ?) can do this and receive the picks of my opponents. In the morning (until 08:00 am CET), I can prepare Evita Excel sheet based on picks I will have received so far and send by mail to somebody.

I am a bit unsure if it is possible to inculde doubles matches from LA because of the big time difference :unsure:
Maybe I will add them at the end of the OOP with all possibilities and will only count those matches which are really played:p

Washington thread has to be created on Friday. I can manage it fully but if somebody really wants to manage it, I don't see any issue to let her/him do it.

I volunteered for US Open and Davis Cup but if anybody is interested, do let me know as well.

For Montreal, Cincinnati and New Haven, I can manage them but it would be great to have volunteers to manage them as well, especially because I will not be in same timezone.

As the timezone is not convenient for a European guy who wants to sleep a bit at night, it would be good to have somebody who could help to publish OOP of the day after when this is middle of the night in France.
