This would be a great idea. Considering the hate that doubles gets in GM, though, if it were to happen, I'd like to see it moderated, and moderated like a player forum where trolling isn't allowed. It's nearly impossible to talk about doubles in GM because of it. alfonso, perhaps send an email to the admin truebluefan (since it was your idea:D) and see if this is possible?

Deboogle!. thanks so much for the lighting fast feedback. And alfonsojose what a great idea. Yes this is so good. I will mod the forum and take care of it if you dont want to have to post the results every singles day. But overall what an awesome idea, I really hope it happens.

Seems like a reasonable request

We'll see if the webmaster can get this organised.

Why the heck is the Doubles Rankings thread there closed? :mad: Only because it isn't an "Updated Ranking Thread" like Judio's for the Singles section? Would it be accepted if it was such an URT?

Jelena this angered me very much, I worked very hard to put that together, and they have one for singles. The doubles thread already had mods closing down some good posts.

RL, you didn't answer my question. Would such a thread be allowed if it was constructed similar to the Updated Ranking Thread Judio made for the Singles?

Sorry for missing your question.

There would be no problem with a similar ranking thread as the one in GM.

It just seems that Gab was just reporting info that's easily available from ATP's site, and that sort of redundancy is unnecessary.

I still don't know if there is anywhere on the web available the info about the doubles Ranking points available, but if it is (link appreciated though I will try to inform myself too), I'd be ok to do the Updated Ranking Thread for the doubles.

Double's rankings are available from ATP's site (http://www.atptennis.com/3/en/rankings/) (also see attachment).

Jelena
10-18-2008, 06:52 PM
and what about the Ranking points? How many points does a player/double team get for reaching a particular round? That is what I need to do the updating of the thread...

Deboogle!.
10-18-2008, 07:05 PM
It's the same as singles. if a tourney is worth 175 points for the singles winner, it's worth the same for the doubles, etc. :)

It is on the ATP web site. But its easier and would attract more people to your site (Which is your job, not mine) to have the rankings updated weekly. Why do they do this in the singles thread, but not the doubles thread. You answer that big guy ;).

you don't think there is a difference between your thread and Judio's thread?

Of course there is a difference, but I don't have the time to make one like that, so why cant we just have one with the rankings???

Well, it seems like Jelena will now make a Judio-like ranking thread.

10-18-2008, 07:50 PM
Glab, you could do a race thread, like the one in GM for singles. It takes much less time to do than the entry ranking but is interesting for a lot of people to follow the race. I'm happy to help you (or Jelena) if you guys want or don't always have the time to update. but I think both would be good threads for the doubles forum. :)
