I referred to Sydney and Aucklad week (2nd week). For me, it's senseless to run this two tourneys in the same.
It'd be more interesing if we run a 2 tourney week in one of these weeks:
2/11 - Marseille and Sauipe or Delray Beach
2/18 - Rotterdam and Buenos Aires or San Jose
2/25 - Memphis and Acapulco or Zagreb

than two tourneys outdoor hard tourneys in Oceania

The thing about that week is Rotterdam is a 250 and BA is a 175

Marseille is a 200, the other two are 175s.
Rotterdam is a 250, the others are 175
Memphis is a 250, the others are 175

I cant see people playing in events where they can get less points, but I do see how this leaves there no South American tournament..I will think about it/ask some people and we will see.

Day 13 is womens final only. Days 11+12 (mens semis) has to only count as 1 day otherwise it would be impossible to win.

So the tournament is 14 days long but you only have to make 12 picks.

Well, as i said in the suicide beijing topic, i think that the loser of semi should be avalaible to play the little final

3 ways i think to do that :

normal way : you can't pick a player you've already pick (but in this case, you'll have no choice at all, you just could pick the player who didn't make you lose in semi so not interrest)

exception way : you can pick a second time a player you've already pick (so you have a choice, but it's against the rules)

special way, in the pick of friday, you pick for both final and little final (and you can pick some differents players, or the same one)

for example :

friday
Nadal
BU Federer

if not little final
Nadal
BU Fish

what do you think about that ?

Filipo
08-09-2008, 11:49 AM
i think the best way is: if someone reached the semifinals and there he loses, he would be available to pick ONLY for little final, despite he can pick a player twice. that's because we have different points for winner/loser of little final.

eljab

:scratch: It's difficult to come up with a system that sticks to the true rules of suicide whilst still ensuring it is possible for someone to win :shrug:

Will there still be 16 players who qualify?

rvugt
10-08-2008, 08:03 AM
Just a short idea. There are 4 matches every day. What if you have to pick a winner from both groups for every day. And it's not suicide tennis, but nearly suicide tennis, as you can pick everybody twice. But that means, once or twice in the group round and than only once in the SF and final. I know it's not like suicide tennis, but people should get more chances to pick one player. And if you can pick a different group everyday, picking a player twice might be too much. Than you might be saying that you can pick 2 players twice.

Snowwy
10-18-2008, 04:04 PM
The rules from last years TMC actually were pretty good, no one did too well, we dont want to make it tooo easy, its a lot of points if its too easy.

Filipo
10-21-2008, 03:53 PM
OK, here's the rules for TMC Shanghai 2008:

8 days, picking every day. Only 2 players can be picked twice. I suggest the second pick of these 2 players to be only at SF and F, otherwise we can pick one player twice in the same group.

The point distribution is:
Out with nothing - 0
Out on Day 1 - 100
Out on Day 2 - 200
Out on Day 3 - 300
Out on Day 4 - 400
Out on Day 5 - 500
Out on Day 6 - 600
Out on Day 7 /SF/ - 700
Winner - 800

Only first 16 players from the ranking will be eligible to play. From 17th to 25th can pick in case some of qualified persons forgot to pick. We'll use the ranking after Paris.

I'm a volunteer for manager of Shanghai, despite the curse of early loss when i'm managing :p


I saw from last year that there were some challengers after Paris. We have to decide which they have to be and managers are needed :wavey: Those who play in Shanghai won't participate in the challenger at the same week.

eljab
10-22-2008, 07:14 AM
it seems really good rules :yeah:

I prefer the way where the final draw is finally like another tournament. (so second pick for the same player only for the main draw and not in the group.

Filipo
10-26-2008, 03:14 PM
I saw that last year there were 4 or 5 challengers after Paris. So here's my suggestions for challengers this year (main things are: most points and best field):

03.11 - Bratislava
10.11 - Dnepropetrovsk (week of Shanghai)
17.11 - Helsinki
24.11 - Lima

Those who participate in Shanghai cannot play in Dnepropetrovsk (16 players will be defined on Sunday, all other can play in Ukraine).
Challengers, which don't have reliable livescores, will have deadline 10 minutes after the first match scheduled.

Any questions ? Managers needed, btw :)
