LE for singles, normal doubles entry

I've already done that - I know that would have happened anyway.

I guess my only question is whether he should be granted an exception considering he pulled out in an emotional rage :shrug:

If that means no, then I'll accept that.

As much as I can feel with him (:sad:), but I think we can't accept things like that, otherwise everyone would want exceptions :shrug:

Yeah that is very true. And I guess since I'm the one who jumps up and down whenever this principle is tested I should just shut up right now :lol:

Unfortunately this isn't going to change Smasher's position :sad: It isn't every day that as the 19th ranked player you get overshot as an LE by someone ranked number 10 :awww:

Are there any potential players that can get an SE for San Jose?

Also, I still need an assistant for San Jose, if anyone is interested.

Tankman
02-05-2009, 03:00 PM
Tim if you need an assistant that desperately, sign me up I guess.

I'm starting to become an insomniac so I guess it shouldn't be a problem. :o :lol:

Plus, I should be awake before the matches finish (9-12am Sydney time, which is whatever it is in the States... I cbb checking :p) so I can forward your picks to you :cool:

Oh come on.

Ok that's it. I've been very nice to you. But obviously we have different philosphies on managing.

My mum and dad are the ones who should be rewarded for showing remarkable patience. Because they have to LIVE with me. And they are suffering. More than you and more than these qualy players of mine :sad:

In fact, I regret ever accepting your help and in hindsight would be glad if I never got it from you.

So while I don't like to say this. YOU ARE THE IDIOT.

I think the pick format differences between tournaments are going too far. I mean I didn't feel comfortable with AO being a little different, but could understand it was helpful to manage such a huge tournament.

But I think in general a consistent pick format should be maintained in TT if at all possible. If some kind of spreadsheet program required a different format than that spreadsheet macro/program is defective.

I am not playing Rotterdam, but the format desired there looks like this:

[/quote]
Roddick
Murray
Sampras
Bahrami
Koellerer
Hewitt
Verdasco
Simon

26 64 42 ret.
21
20
20
20
21
21
20
[/quote]

Which is a complete mess and prone to mistakes. Also there is nothing in the rules of TT that allows a manager to award warnings for sending picks in the generally accepted way for TT, e.g. the players sending picks in the following format should never be given a warning:


Roddick 7-6 6-4
Murray 6-4 6-3
...


In my opinion, if the format above isn't accepted by the manager, the manager should not use spreadsheet macros or shouldn't manage at all.

BTW. Tankman this is nothing personal, just a general observation for the sake of consistency in TT ;)

no probs Harm, good points which I will address ONE by ONE :p

:lol: Mulo is such a pain huh? :p

But I think in general a consistent pick format should be maintained in TT if at all possible. If some kind of spreadsheet program required a different format than that spreadsheet macro/program is defective.

Yeah. That's why we need a STANDARD SPREADSHEET TOO :p

.....

Well yeah it is. Unfortunately I'm using Mulo's old Bastad spreadsheet. Which sucks. I gave my reasons on post 9, q23462364 and q098324923 so I'm not going to explain again :p

And that's not entirely true. TT rules state it's up to the manager

Also - I have 5 LEVELS OF WARNINGS. You cannot possibly get DQed unless you get to the final. And if you don't get the idea after 5 times, then you are honestly an idiot - no offence ;)

In my opinion, if the format above isn't accepted by the manager, the manager should not use spreadsheet macros or shouldn't manage at all.

OOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH

:lol:

well it's easier :p

and as I have made perfectly clear I am not managing a Rotterdam+ tourney again (unless it's wimbly :p)

also... MULOS NEW SPREADSHEET loves your pick sending version normal (or at least I think it does :p)

also... MULO IF YOU ARE READING THIS COME HERE AND DEFEND ME :armed: :lol:

02-09-2009, 03:38 PM
OK

new idea for TT

after discussions in the MRH thread... I think we should set up a TT Court

by court I mean tribunal/dispute-resolution system.

I'd volunteer to be first arbitrator/mediator/judge, but I'd like to argue some cases as an advocate first :p

(we want to make this real too, no?)

First case for the court would be Nando_L v Board of TT, with Nando_L being represented by gaynor, ilovetheblues and myself.

Thoughts? :p

I agree. I wouldn't send picks like that even if the manager asked me to. That is not how we sent for the AO, was it :confused:

I will do IW doubles, if no-one else wants to do it. It's a good timezone for me.

This is weird for me, but I'm going to have to roll out the experience argument. I've been playing AND managing TT longer than you. So shut up. :p

I will do IW doubles, if no-one else wants to do it. It's a good timezone for me.

Then take the penalty I give you then :p Of course seeing as you're not going to participate in any one of my tourneys that won't be a problem.

what's the problem with the traditional way of sending?

Nothing. And IN FUTURE I WILL NOT ASK FOR A NONTRADITIONAL WAY.

Mulos new spreadsheet works now :p

We don't "need" a standard spreadsheet. We just need no incompetent managers running tournaments :wavey:

We also just need no incompetent posters spouting their mouths off at any opportunity. I try to be funny, yes. But if you don't find it funny, then I will be serious with you. End of story.

Sorry to interfere but I see you're giving management to Tankman again...

Please, make him proove his goal is to manage and not to make the show...

We're there to enjoy playing not to attend a teenager "with a weird sense of humour"'s show.

For instance, announce a "back-up" manager with picks' double sending...

The way Adam is compelled to collect picks is pathetic.... and can be source of cheating...

I don't think you need to worry, care will probably be taken before he manages another tourney. By the way I think his problems go way beyond those of teenager, some serious medical/psych. stuff going on. I hope he recovers soon.

what happens when on a 10 match OOP , 2 matches are postponed to the next day thanks to Rain Delay? i dont remember if in TT that round is completed (R32) only after those 2 matches are finished, or the manager can simply not count the missing matches and just end the round that way without those 2 :scratch:

cos i remember some tricky situations last year and im not sure how did it end

what happens when on a 10 match OOP , 2 matches are postponed to the next day thanks to Rain Delay? i dont remember if in TT that round is completed (R32) only after those 2 matches are finished, or the manager can simply not count the missing matches and just end the round that way without those 2 :scratch:

cos i remember some tricky situations last year and im not sure how did it end
:p

I had to do 2-day round singles in Memphis. Now should I do 3-day round in doubles (so that singles and doubles will be at the same round in qf) or not?? :confused:

I think it's open to the choice of the manager, I would definitely chose having an assymmteric schedule because three days for one round is too much. It's better to distribute the matches for the doubles draw so that the tournament is more fair andcompetitive and it is more fun for the players (so Monday + Tuesday doubles R16, Wednesday + Thursday doubles QF).

Being a seed doesn't matter in TT. If the TT #1 commmits one minute late he will be LE and could be Alt in quallies. All late commitments go at the bottom of the list in ranking order.

not being a seed at all? i mean, i have the #45 in my draw but he committed pretty late and I have 5 guys who committed in time but didn't get in to the draw. The first 2 best ranked of these 5 will get the 2 SE spots, if they are cleared, then the other 3 + 6 LE (don't matter the ranking) entries will play qualy.

thank you VERY much tanking. it will be my last TT week, as player and manager. :)

Something has come up for me on Saturday, so I am hoping there is someone who can help me out a bit with Delray Beach quallies that day. If play starts at 10am like I think it's supposed to, I can quickly post differences, etc before I have to leave... basically I would just need someone to possibly update at the end of the day (I would send my spreadsheet) and post the OOP since I wouldn't get home until pretty late at night.

It would only be for Saturday....

On Sunday evening after seeing the entry lists, players that aren't among the 28 direct entries, can move to another tournament which has free places or decide not to move and play the qualies there (only 1 change is allowed, still on ranking but late entries - LE's will go to the bottom of the entry list)


This might refer to sunday after first deadline right? So can a player change tournaments like thursday, one day before the second deadline and let´s say, few days before the start of the tournament?? :confused:

They can change anytime between committing to one tournament in the first place and the 2nd deadline. If they change before the first deadline, they are still a late entry as far as I know.

I have to do it in a couple of hours, but I probably won't know if the SE spot gets cleared until tomorrow morning because of the Memphis tourney. Shall I put Rik! into the qualy draw as the top seed and then fill his/her spot with an alternate if he/she wins?

Yes, leave the SE spot open in the MD and put Rik. in the QD.

If he wins his SF in Memphis then he moves into the MD and an alt takes his place in the QD.
If he loses his SF in Memphis then a LL from qualies will get the SE spot in the MD.

feel free to release the qualy draws for singles and doubles...ASAP :p or as soon as the OOP is available, which u should post the sooner the better

this is my qualy entry list. first seed would be jmjhb #266 or JM-del-Potro #45 as LE? Also, with the two SE spots cleared, I have 9 players for 4 qualy spots. I was thinking on doing 7 players fighting for 2 qualy spots but what's the rule for this?

:
jmjhb 266
ostm89 287
anttikoski 307
orangehat 312
Australian_dream2009 NR
JM-Del-Potro LE 45
egiorazz LE 80
aussie_fan LE 105
petesampras_1 LE 219
nkp2 LE 233
Medina LE 260

FiBeR
02-20-2009, 07:41 PM
yeah, SE must be cleared :rolls: i think both the ses get cleared this week :scratch:

regarding the qualy list.. if SEs are cleared, jmjhb must be moved to MD (or the highest player in the qualy field regarding the order of commitment placed above)



once done that, you can sort the players by the 2nd week's ranking, no matter if it is an LE or what.. :p

so in that case, JM-del-Potro should be 1st seeded in qualy ^^

no SE so the thing i just posted should be done :p


if both SEs are cleared:

jmjhb 266 <--moved to MD
ostm89 287 <--moved to MD


1) JM-Del-Potro LE 45
2) egiorazz LE 80
3) aussie_fan LE 105
4) petesampras_1 LE 219
5) nkp2 LE 233
6) Medina LE 260
7) anttikoski 307
8) orangehat 312
9) Australian_dream2009 NR

9 players for 4 qualy sports..

that means..

seeds 1-7 get byes..

8 vs 9 in QR1..


in QR2, you randomize them, and place the winner of 8 vs 9 to face a player who got a bye in first round :)

For my match,

He had JM Del Potro at 6-5 on Sunday night, so he should be the winner.

On monday, he said 4 ATP qualy matches still counted for TT qualies. But this is wrong. JM should have won. I for 4 right, and overtook JM and went into first round.

However, it doesn't REALLY matter for our game, as we re-drew each other as a LL and I would have won anyway, just our roles as LL and Qualifier would be reversed. But he did it wrong. So he will have to go back and fix it me thinks.

I have a little issue regarding the Dubai tourney. Yesterday's deadline was 11 am and Sheva hadn't sent any picks at that time. So I announced that 2 lucky losers were going to get his spots in the singles and doubles draws. About 3 hours later (around 2 pm), it turned out that a friend of his send in picks for him at 1 am in the night, but he sent them to the wrong person. I don't know what to do about it now, but I don't think it would be fair to the other players if I were to kick them out of the draw, after I had told them they get a lucky loser spot, all over again.

Correct scoreline for:

Player a picked Santoro 7-6, 6-7, 6-4 and player b picked Santoro 6-4 4-6 6-3. Am I right in assuming the PTS-score is tied at 4-4 (both players have 1 set in correct order and gave him a 6-4 set) and the match will go to PTS2?

Great job. :worship:

I was reluctant to manage DTT Tournaments again because of lack of time (and I have never used Excel sheet so far, always done manually through Notepad). I got criticism because I posted results with delta only (such as +1:00). But, now, I can still think about managing DTT by using that sheet (FYI, DTT has same rules as TT).

-Evita-, I will send you by PM some bugs, some enhancements ...
And I am really looking forward seeing the same for Doubles Draw. :angel:

Can you send it to me too please, looks like it could save me a lot of time when running Miami :)

I repeat - the spreadsheet is not ready yet. The singles part is almost ready and already somewhat tested but the doubles part is still under development. If you're willing to test it, especially next week when the doubles will be ready for testing then please PM me. Otherwise you can just wait for the public release, Miami is still far away :)

And by the way, the current spreadsheet has a limit of max 16 singles matches in one round, and max 24 doubles matches in one round so it wouldn't be of much use for Miami anyway. I think it should be enough for all the 32-draw tournaments.

I'm going to make three versions of the spreadsheet - one for the smaller tournaments, one for ATP 1000 and GS qualification, and one for GS main draw matches (because those are best of 5 set matches and they need a separate spreadsheet). Can anyone tell me what is the maximum number of one round TT matches in 1000 events and GS qualies? :unsure: I need as low a number as possible please. Maybe 25-30 for singles and 35-40 for doubles? :scratch:

For your first events managed, I would say you probably would not be given tournaments that overlap. I don't decide who gets what, but you don't know at this point what goes into managing a tournament, and keeping track of qualifying picks for one event and finals picks for another event, and updating results of one and entry lists for another... it's a lot. It's a lot doing one at a time, let alone two of a time.
