The deadline for Roland Garros commitments had been assigned Sunday 18:00 CET by the manager in the first page of thread but now the manager says the commitments are still accepted after that deadline. Should commitments after that deadline be accepted or the players who've commited after that deadline in singles and doubles are LE ?

I was just unsure in terms of Grand Slams regarding the entry...whether it should be the same time as usual or if they should be accepted right up until qualy draws are made, being that there is still plenty of room in the qualies.

If the schedules don't change from now on, those who qualify for 4th round in singles or 3rd round in doubles at TT Roland Garros must be removed from challengers entry list (Prostejov, Furth, Nottingham & Yuba City), am I right?

you're hired. I think I can run the qualies (if it happen) and singles and doubles until the quarterfinals.
I'll be back home in the following Tuesday, so I'll ask players to keep sending to me even when I'm away so I can make the club competition but with late results (you won't have to bother making it) ;)

I should have a Bye in the first round :D Seriously, there's nothing else you can do, obviously he's playing Lugano if he never withdrew from there. And it works out very nicely too because seed no.5 has a Bye and I'm seed no.6 so I'm the next in line for a Bye :)

But this player caused unnecessary headaches for the managers so he should be put in a black list or something :devil: I mean, it's against the rules to commit to two tournaments at the same time, and the managers can't check all the tournaments for all the players so the responsibility for this falls to the players themselves.

Check my post in TT Lugano thread, I realized later it wouldn't bring me problems with the singles draw (but still change the doubles draw and problems to his partner).

I agree with you, something could be done as punishment.
I previously checked the commitments of other threads of the week - unfortunately, an extra work managers have to do - but really missed his name in Lugano.

It sucks when you are a manager and have so much work and some players don't give a sh*t with commitments and when sending picks in the desired way. :sad:

Question about LL Order in Lugano.

2 players who lost tight ones in the final qualy round both had 4 matches correct and 3 sr's correct, and there points were the same, giving 1 correct set score but in the 3rd set, when the match only went 2 sets. On the countback, both players did not send picks for the first qualy round, so do I go off of ranking now?

I think it's best to try and stick to the original schedule as much as possible.
Therefore I say that Monday's original scheduled matches will count for R32, the remainder of the first round matches are TT R16 and the second round matches (which look like they will be scheduled for Thursday) will count for TT QF.

Good luck :hug:

Protected Ranking (PR)

- PR will be introduced. Players must inform the board about their absence for the protected ranking to start running. A list of players with protected ranking will be kept in the managers thread. To get a PR, the players absence from TT must be continuos for atleast 3 months. The number of PR's will depend on the lenght of absence:

3 months out = 3 PR
4 months out = 4 PR
5 months out = 5 PR
6 or more months out = 6 PR

For the PR that a player is able to use for entries, we will use the average ranking of the first 6 weeks that the player was out. PR applies to both singles and doubles and we'll have a separate PR for both of them.



When i come back to TT in October i think, i'll probably be still in top 5, so i won't have to use my PR, but when 2010 starts, i might be out of top 80/100 so i will need it.
My question is: After i come back, for how long can i use my (3 or 4) protected ranking? How long as i want ?
:)

It would make sense if it's valid for 12 months from the first time you use it.

This is the situation:

In Winnetka Challenger the Main Draw starts Monday, but only 2 matches will be played, i begin the TT Winnetka MD tuesday or first round of TT Winnetka will be Monday and Tuesday?

if I start tuesday, the player that still in QF in Singles and Doubles in Wimbledon, can they play my tournament if they lose?

Waiting a answer, thanks

Waiting a answer, thanks

There are no matches in Wimbledon on Sunday so the next round in Wimby will be Monday & Tuesday so from that perspective it really doesn't matter when you start your challenger. I would suggest starting on Monday even if it's just two matches. Then if you have 14 matches on Tuesday you can divide them for R1 and R2 for singles. For example, take all the matches played first on each court and that will be your R1 (plus Monday matches) and the rest of Tuesday's matches will be R2. But this goes only if there are many many matches on Tuesday.

First question:
If two players in the same match forget to send picks, who wins? Neither of them sent late picks.

Second question:
If one of a doubles pair sent on time and the other late, do they lose automatically? Assuming, of course, both their opponents sent on time.

I think:

1, the one with best ranking advances.

2. no, but the late picks of the player who sent late picks can't count.

There's a ankward situation ocurred today. Last week a player (MuriloBrasil) commited to Cordoba and he also wrote a future doubles commitment (w/vmbf) that had to be reconfirmed in the correct doubles commitment period. The commitment hasn't been confirmed yet, and there's also no sign from the player who was going to play doubles with MuriloBrasil, he didn't commit for singles in my tournament, but I thought MuriloBrasil commited for him according to this...



Can another player commit for you?

Yes.



So I still added him to the entrylist in singles :shrug: But today vmbf posted in another tournament that he was going to play doubles with MuriloBrasil. :scratch: But he made that post after the 2nd deadline, so I already made the QD and everything...

What's the situation about vmbf? Does he play Cordoba or Oberstaufen? :o I'm not sure what to do here. :rolleyes: Some players should really learn how to follow rules, I guess.

It probably won't be feasible to do the draw again, so I guess the only possible thing if they want to play together is if MuriloBrasil withdraws to play Oberstaufen (seeing as there are still MD spots there). I wonder what would happen if there weren't any though :o.

I wholeheartedly agree that some people need to read the rules more clearly :o

Edit: I just realised you already added vmbf to the Entry List, (I thought he wasn't in there at first). So i guess vmbf withdraws from Oberstaufen and everything is solved.

07-05-2009, 04:47 AM
Hm, I am the manager from Oberstaufen and will put vmbf in brackets now.
(allthough I was happy for every player there was, because only 24 committed until the 2nd deadline :sad:)

But I think that for the future this rule needs to be cleared.
I understand where it comes from.
But whatīs the sense of having a player in an entry list who doesnīt know about this and will probably not send anyway, because someone else committed for him? :scratch:

So I still added him to the entrylist in singles :shrug:

That was the mistake here, you shouldn't have added him to the singles entry list. I know this rule exists, yes, but I think it has to be exactly specified, like, for example, if MuriloBrasil had posted "I'm playing doubles with vmbf and I'm also committing him to singles (because for whatever reason vmbf can't make the commitment himself)" then you should have added him to the singles entry list. As it was just a casual doubles commitment, well, adding him to singles was a mistake IMO.

As for what to do now - send both of them PMs and ask them where they want to play. Suggest Oberstaufen because it has a lot of free spots. If they don't respond to the PMs then each of them has to play where they committed - MuriloBrasil in Cordoba and vmbf in Oberstaufen, and so they can't play doubles together.

ClaudiuS
07-05-2009, 01:13 PM
Okay, the best thing to do in the future is to put in the singles entry list just the ones who write for themselves that they want to sign in. And that exception of commiting a player for someone has to be clearly written like. "commit this guy for singles too, because he can't to do it at the moment" and if after that for whatever reason can't play there, HE MUST LET THE MANAGER KNOW ABOUT IT. At least writing "OUT" :shrug:

Hi,
one question, in the final of Rijeka, on Saturday, Wojtek won 2-1 to Ghan and on Sunday Wojtek sent pick late.
Lorenzi wins Kavcic, Ghan pick to Kavcic. The final result is 2-1 (saturday + sunday)for Wojtek.
Who is the final winner? Does Ghan win because Wojtek didn`t send pick of sunday or Wojtek win for 2-1?
Thanks you

Late picks don't count but they also don't disqualify a player. So if Wojtek leads 2-1 even with his late pick not counted then he wins the tournament :)

Sure is...and I did it...I've been updating everyday since the singles deadline. If players ranked very low want to play regular tour events, they should always expect to play qualies at best...I believe that was the problem in the thread...someone ranked low asked for the list. My apologizes for bringing up past quarrels...that may have been harsh of me.

Hey, there's no need to apologize to me - it's the players (or potential players) who wanted to see the list. I'm playing a different tournament that week. But you are right, problems like this always do get more attention than the things you do well. The managers have to do a lot of things - entry lists, OOP, differences, results - and if they do it well for a week they get some thank you's in the end, it's just the way it is.

Sure is...and I did it...I've been updating everyday since the singles deadline.

So you had the entry list ready and you just didn't publish it? May I ask why? :scratch:

Edit: I just reread the post and I realized you said "since the singles deadline" so please ignore this question.

If players ranked very low want to play regular tour events, they should always expect to play qualies at best...I believe that was the problem in the thread...someone ranked low asked for the list.

This is where our views differ. If someone asks for the list one day before the deadline I don't see it as a problem, I see as a problem the fact that it had to be asked because it wasn't published yet. Maybe players don't "need" the list, of course they can always assume the worst. But where is the need for that? People certainly want the entry list a couple of days before the deadline and where is the harm in publishing it? Let's take a person ranked 110, for example. Are they so low-ranked that they should always assume to have to play qualies? They may get in in some tournaments and not get in in others. Another example, let's say there's a person ranked 250 who wants to play qualies but doesn't want to commit if he'd be only an alternate. He needs an entry list to make this decision.

What I am trying to say, basically, is that people like to be informed regularly, they like to know what's going on, what are their chances to get in, what are their chances to be seeds, what are their chances to get a Bye, and so on. That's why I always try to publish the first entry list on Wednesday, and then at least one more update on Friday/Saturday. It's a good practice, I think :shrug:

Please, can someone help me in these situation who are the winners?
Both teams are tied in winnings and correct SR.
SR1 no difference.
SR2 Schukin vs. Veic
Team A Schukin 2-0 & Veic 2-0
Team B Schukin 2-1 (x2)
Result: Schukin 2-0
Team A should win becouse they got 1 correct SR2 or Team B becouse both got the correct winner?

You don't get SE's into ATP tournaments by playing challenger finals, it doesn't work that way. I think there are two SE's for Gstaad. ANDRE AGASSI gets one because he's playing in Hamburg final, and you can clear the second SE because there are no other candidates for it.

Thanks.

Well, it's easy in this case. She hasn't withdrawn from LA so she can't participate in another tournament in the same week. So the answer is no.

If it was a different situation and she had withdrawn from LA then it would have depended on the final entry deadline in Tampere. As I just checked the thread, I saw it says this:

Period for changes and doubles commitments: Sunday, 19th January 6:01 pm CET – Friday 25th January 8 pm CET

I'm afraid this deadline is not correct, and neither have you posted anything else in the thread about deadlines. Usually the final deadline is on Friday but the manager can extend it if the main draw is still not full. In that case you have to write something like "entry closes as soon as 32 people commit but no later than Sunday at 8pm" or something like that. The way it is now, with no deadline at all, that's not a good situation. The deadline is important for this reason: People who commit before it can be placed on the entry list, but people who commit after it can be only alternates (even if the main draw still has free spots).

Oh, I don't think a new thread is a good idea. hallso said he only needs help until Thursday so I'm sure he will update the first page eventually. He might even be able to do it before Thursday. And besides, there's usually not much talk in challenger tournaments so it should be easy to find all information in the last posts of the thread. Two threads is just so, I don't know... I like it better if everything's in one place :)

I don't like a new thread, so I will do it in the old one. But he wouldn't be needing help today right? From tomorrow on. Than I will download the excel sheet today so I will be able to post diffs tomorrow!

Labamba-

I am going to have to withdraw from managing Bucharest. Very sorry:o. School will limit me from getting the OOP out early and quick results and stuff. Thanks.

once again sorry, I thought I can make it using places with internet but..
I have much less time I supposed to have, I can't find place with microsoft office and open office unfortunately doesn't read a lot of formulas :o
in this situation it is waste of my money and time which I don't have much and also of your nerves because of very late diffs..
thanks a lot rvugt for taking it, I will update qualies now and make main draws

In Segovia I have 4 people that didn't send picks and 1 Lucky Loser. Normally I would place Lucky Loser versus the worst ranked player who faces no picks. But in this case I have a match where both players didn't send. Should I put the Lucky Loser versus the worst ranked or in the match where both didn't send???

I hope the question is clear...

You should put the LL in the match where both didn't send.

I have a question about San Marino, the challenger where I am manager of for some days. I posted diffs this afternoon at 4 when matches started, also placing 2 LL, becuase 2 people didn't send. Than later in the evening one of these players told me that he did send, but to the actual manager of the tournament, hallso. It was clearly stated in the OOP that he had to send to me and he told me very late. So what do I do, place him back or leave the LL?

Just a question for New Haven. It's a 64 player draw but the tournament finishes on saturday so I must play first round on first sunday, and play the two rounds of qualys on first saturday. That's right?

Okay, I suggest the deadline for doubles commitment to be extend until Sunday afternoon, because the tourney only has 5 teams confirmed.

Also there are 18 singles commitments

Could someone please post the OOP for San Marino today? It's just two matches but we need to know the order of SRs. And I don't want to post it because I'm playing it.

Just wondering, when does the last round of USO Qualies end? I'm assuming it starts on Tuesday/Wednesday?

If it's the same as previous years then it should start on Tuesday and end on Friday, I think.

Yeh that sounds fine to me. As long as the TT board are happy with that? I don't know how to post up all the standard tournament thread posts but if you could give me some guidance on that (maybe by PM) I could get that up by this time tomorrow

edit: just figured it out! So if everyone is happy I will post the tournament thread tomorrow night and will do the entry lists/draws, whilst ozone will post diffs during the tournament and I will update the scores daily and post the OOP :)
