Season 6 of TT...bring it on! :rocker2:

The usual things:

- max 2 tourneys per manager
- 1 week to apply
- give atleast one back-up choice
- new managers should start with challengers

Take your pick! :cool:

Tentatively available to do the AO with someone. (would not do Singapore CH if doing AO)

Btw Ville, why is GBR Futures on the calendar? Also are we still doing awards for 2010 season? :scratch:

There's no challenger during the first week of AO, so I thought we could play a futures tournament (with challenger-like points) for those who don't qualify for AO. It's still tentative though...

The nomination process for the 2010 awards is underway, so the polls should be up in the near future :)

I don't think it's a good idea but I guess it's open to debate.

Sorry, Ville, I might have timing issues with Brisbane, and that is something I would like to avoid this season.

So please change to Auckland and Kazan CH, with Brisbane as B/U.

I hope somebody will take Brisbane, but if not I will work out something.

As a matter of interest I looked up the field for the 2010 GB2 Futures and the top 8 were
Ignatik
Desein
Galvani
Goodall
J. Baker
Middelkoop
Patience
Juska.

For comparison the top 8 in Karshi challenger in August were
Kavcic
Kravchuk
Martin
Semjan
Kumantsov
Juska
J Minar
Poch-Gradin.

Not a great deal of difference in strength, in my humble opinion. My main worry would be whether the Futures tournament would provide OOPs and Results in a consistent and timely manner, and the only way of finding out is by giving it a go.

Nothing to lose really - the choice is between having somewhere to play (however dodgy) and taking a week off.

I don't think I'd like to manage it though :eek:

My main worry was that, not the strength of the field and I have found Futures updates on the ATP website to be bad the few times I tried last year.

the British futures usually have solid updates as far as I can remember, so it might be worth a go...

From the FAQ thread:

How to procede during challengers on a Grand Slam's second week?

If the player reaches a GS R16, they are out of qualifying; if they reach GS week 2, that means they are out of the challenger. These tournaments usually have a Tuesday start, so it's possible to play two qualifying rounds on Sunday & Monday. Players who are out of quallies can still be MD alternates or play doubles in these challengers if they don't reach the GS 2nd week.

Question about my Kooyong exho. Because of the rain match#4 will take place tomorrow and the OOP on the website shows only 2 new plays in stead of 3, assuming next day will have 4. (as it would be 4 3 3 2)

What to do with the TT matches? have a second round of 2?

Goldenoldie
01-12-2011, 11:02 AM
My opinion would be to keep to the 4 3 3 2 format, by having a 2 day round 2, choosing the first of day 3's matches to count. I know it's a pain in the *** having a split day, but I think it would be fairest.

So this would be the revised schedule:-

TT round 1 = 3 matches played day 1 plus 1 match played day 2
TT round 2 = 2 matches played day 2 plus 1 match played day 3
TT Semi-Final = 3 matches played day 3
TT Final = 2 matches played day 4

Assuming no more rain of course!

I am sure you will get full support whatever you decide.

Ok another question.
00:00 | (alt) Orangehat (SIN) vs. (5) Crocodile (FRA) - Monfils, Youzhny vs. Verdasco, Hewitt SR Differences: Tsonga 2-1 v 2-0, Monfils 2-1 vs. Verdasco 2-1, Youzhny 2-0 vs. Hewitt 2-0 -> now leads to:

02:02 | (alt) Orangehat (SIN) vs. (5) Crocodile (FRA) #SRs: 1-0

So if Tsonga wins 20, both have 3-3 picks and 2-2 sets.
Then what :scratch:

I would say: Crocodile then wins on SR1 shootout because he picked Tsonga 2-0?

Morning. Kooyong question. Both same situation

02:01 | (6) Gallina (ARG) vs. Boarder35m (GER) - Tsonga vs. Melzer SR Differences: Tsonga 2-0 vs. Melzer 2-0 #SRs so far 0-0

03:02 | Jessebel (USA) vs. (2) Hotzenplotz (GER) - Tsonga vs. Melzer SR Differences: Tsonga 2-0 vs. Melzer 2-0 #SRs so far 0-0

Melzer wins, but because it's an extended set it's 1-0.
What to do to decide the winner?

I'd say skip SR1. SR2+3 wont help because they have 0SRs and it's not that 1 has the loser with 2-0 and one the loser with 2-1 so that the last would proceed.

So, PTS? Who will help me with this? :o

Better check with the board - this is an entirely new one on me - changing the format of the match just doesn't happen in regular TT.

Goldenoldie
01-14-2011, 08:49 AM
In my opinion:-

The match was played, even though under different scoring.
Therefore I would treat it the same as a win by retirement, i.e winner counts but the SR does not.
So the winners are Boarder35m and Hotzenplotz on SR1 Shootout (Correct winner)

It's tough, but so are retirements.

(There could be a similar situation if a slam had to go from 5 sets to 3 sets for example)

Really, that's what my spreadsheet actually said when I just put in Melzer as winner indeed. I will do that. Thanks.

I think that's fair - I also think that should be codified somewhere - as you say there is the potential for it to happen in slams, although highly rarely.

:wavey: im back with more questions!

:( :rain:

So, Kooyong decided to skip 4 matches (losers half of the draw it seems).

Situation now:
I have 3 out of 4 QF decided, 1 depending on Berdych - Youzhny which won't take place.

My suggestion:

I can pick a winner in that 4th QF match based on the 2 matches that are played. Bad luck for 1 of the players, but it's out of my control that match won't take place.

:wavey: im back with more questions!

:( :rain:

So, Kooyong decided to skip 4 matches (losers half of the draw it seems).

Situation now:
I have 3 out of 4 QF decided, 1 depending on Berdych - Youzhny which won't take place.

My suggestion:

I can pick a winner in that 4th QF match based on the 2 matches that are played. Bad luck for 1 of the players, but it's out of my control that match won't take place.

Then tomorrow there are 2 matches, 1 counts for the SF match and 1 for the final match.

Is this an idea?!

*edit: i hope so as I already implemented it ;)

You can wait to make the draws till after the AO qualies are finished, so you know exactly which players you have.

You should post an OOP for Sunday as soon as you can, so players who do not know whether they are in or out can still send.

If a player originally picks

Player A 6-3 6-4
Player B 6-3 6-4
Player C 6-3 6-4

and he sends me a new message saying he wishes to change player C 6-3 6-4 to player D 6-4 2-6 6-4.

However, he types his picks again in the same message.
And in the "new set of picks" the scoreline has changed to the one he wished to change it to but not the name of the player.

Like this

Player A 6-3 6-4
Player B 6-3 6-4
Player C 6-4 2-6 6-4

Do I take it as he pick Player C 6-4 2-6 6-4 or Player D 6-4 2-6 6-4

Taz Warrior
01-25-2011, 09:15 AM
:scratch: That's a difficult one but I say it should be player D as he has explicitly stated that he wants to change to that player but would appear that he forgot to change it on the new set of picks.

Just a heads up to the board that we have a slight problem for the Reunion challenger. Our manager abollo seems to be from Egypt where all internet communications have been cut off since the protests started

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/29/technology/internet/29cutoff.html?_r=1&hp

Judging by what's happening, I'm not confident he'll be back online in time for the tournament's end and tomorrow's OOP is out already any event.

I am glad to step in to manage from here, but we have a slight problem in that I'm in doubles semi-finals and obviously that complicates the situation. Additionally, for today's matches everyone sent diffs to abollo and I'm not sure how we can confirm who picked whom. Can anyone help at a minimum accept the picks of my doubles opponents?

Abollo has been very responsive and around frequently during the tournament, so the fact he's not been online in almost 24 hours and this coincides with the protests and internet shut down seem to indicate to me its not his fault and need a plan B

Absolutely. I'll process the diffs.

Barring a return from abollo though, I think we just need to ask everyone to send for tomorrow and Sunday and when he returns figure out who made the semi-finals and I'll have the diffs and winners from there. Fortunately only today is a slight workload though because obviously there's only one match on Sunday.

The other alternative is that I could ask everyone to forward me their picks from today using the honour system and figure out who won - or is there another way to verify with a time-stamp when picks were sent?

Just a heads up to the board that the TT Reunion challenger was cancelled today because of the recent - and projected - weather - I'm not sure I've ever seen this. I've put a detailed post in the thread explaining the tournament's decision and translating their recent facebook posts

http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?p=10733283#post10733283

The challenger was at the quarterfinal stage and all the players there receive 15 ATP points. As far as TT was concerned, we were at the semi-final stage.

Not sure how you want to do the point situation for TT, but I imagine modelling it on the decision in the ATP tournament with all the remaining players/teams getting the same amount of points makes sense

01-30-2011, 10:18 AM
My understanding of the report from Reunion is that the ATP have treated everyone as losing quarter-finalists both for prize money and for points. I can see the logic behind this, because nobody actually won any more, but I think it is a bit mean. Would it not be better to split the total prize fund/points, as happens in other sports where a contest is not completed?

Following ATP would give each TT player/team 40 points for losing semi-finalists. I propose 58 points, by splitting the points which remain on offer (90+63+40+40=233/4=58). I think this would be fairer, but I don't feel particularly strongly about it.

If there are no qualy matches left you will have to make Singles R1 a 2 day round and use some Tuesday matches to complete singles R1 - do R1 Monday and Tuesday and R2 Tuesday if there are enough matches.

Eddy DoubleD

I thought it would be unnecesasary to put everyone to send picks for just one match, so I decided I will use 7 matches for R1 and 8 matches for R2 from a total of 15 matches remained. I think it's the best like this.

Hi, would like to ask a SE question.

I have got into the semis in Acapulco (yes, thinly veiled brag). Would this allow me to enter Indian Wells and apply for a SE, or does the week gap mean I can't? Or would I have to make the final in Acapulco anyway?

Many thanks...

1. You would only get a SE for a tournament of equal or lesser value. Acapulco is a 500, which means you could get SE for a 500, 250 or Challenger, not a 1000.

2. SE is intended to reflect the ATP situation, and compensate players who are physically unable to travel in time. Qualies start Saturday, so a player playing a TT final Saturday/Sunday cannot "travel". A SE entitlement cannot be saved for a week.

3. Reaching a SF does not grant a SE except in the rare instance of Friday's real play being postponed to Saturday, so semi-finalists are still playing.

So if you reach the final in Acapulco, you would be entitled to ask for a SE in Dallas, Cherbourg or Salinas. In fact you have entered Salinas and have a MD place anyway.

Hope this makes it all clearer.

is this like a TT rule?

In ATP a 500 SF gives you a SE into masters and a 250 SF gives you 500 SEs (i.e. equivalent or 1 level above)

I have given one of the SE spots to Orangehat in Dallas. Can I assume though that the original rule stands that as a top 30 player, he can't be seeded?

I've read the rule more carefully, and we are both half right.
A 500 does indeed give SE to a 1000, but a 250 does not give SE to a 500. My ignorance never ceases to amaze me! :o

Question for the board just to verify - in the Dallas CH a few matches had only one diff - Smyczek 2-0 vs. 2-1. Smyczek retired losing 4-1 in the first set. If I understand correctly, because you dont count the SR in the case of a retirement, I cant give the win to the player who gave Groth a set. I need to go to PTS, correct?

Then would come question number 2. GoBlakeGo vs. rodrigol_87 - taking away the Smyczek diff - both picked 64 63 in every match. Since its the first round, there is no countback possibility. GoBlakeGo is ranked higher (75 vs 83) so should win - yet rodrigol_87 is a seed and GoBlakeGo is a LL from qualies. If I understand the rules correctly, however, in this scenario that doesnt matter and GoBlakeGo is the winner, right?

A quick question to regular TT managers - At the Sarajevo Challenger tomorrow, there are only 5 matches in the OOP (4 Qualy Final Round matches and 1 Main Draw R1 match).

Are 5 matches in the OOP sufficient for a Day 1/1 Singles Round 1 or should I include maybe 3 or 4 matches from the Tuesday OOP to make it into a two Day Singles Round 1? Please don't reply 'It's your choice' - I would appreciate some opinions from regular managers or the TT board. Thanks in advance.

I would make it a 2-day 1st round here, so that the TT matches are not mostly decided by matches from the qualification only :)

Goldenoldie
03-06-2011, 06:33 PM
I would be persuaded by the standard of the players left in the final qualifying round.

If they are relatively well known and the matches are likely to be tight I would have no objection to using just the 5 matches.

Otherwise I agree that a 2-day round is the better option.

Edit: I've looked at the matches, and definitely this should be a 2 day round!

I know it would be harsh, and I already f/w 2 sets of picks to Goldenoldie from players who didn't send to him.

I have another question.

I had 7 players on my alt list. 6 sent picks. Of the 6, 5 commited inside the tournament deadline and one commited after the final deadline. I would assume that the player who commited when the tournament deadline passed should be last on the alt list, despite being higher ranked than some of the other alts. Is that wrong or right? If I'm wrong it's something I'll bring up in the off season.
