I would like to run 1 about every week! I prefer to run all USA challengers.

would you like to run Carson and Dallas? You should look at some of the old PYW threads to see how it works coz I just want to make sure you understand them. Would you like to run them or co-run them?

Ozone
12-28-2008, 10:58 PM
I would like to run them. Also, I would like to run Sao Paolo(week 1) and Belgrade. Ill see how it goes and if I enjoy it and its not to hard, I will more tourneys you need. I will also look on previous forums to see how it is done. Thanks and I will get back to you to maybe commit to more!

Hey I can do New Caledonia, why not? I don't really need to be online at a certain time, right? Just counting up and making new posts?

Ozone
12-28-2008, 11:20 PM
Ok I understand how to do them. DO I need to make new threads? When do I need to make the first post?

Baghdatis#1
12-28-2008, 11:30 PM
Snoo Foo, you're in for New Caledonia.

No Lets, you have to make a thread. Something with the title like: PYW Challenger:Athens, Greece-April 7-13-O Clay.
I am not sure where you post them. It will either be in the PYW Forum(a seperate Challengers sub-forum could be made), or in the challenger forum.

Also, now that all of the week1 challengers have organizers, people can committ to assist them now if they want.

Ozone

What do you mean? How?

Anyone know when the organizers(me) are supposed to make the 1st post?(Since im doing a challenger PYW week 1)??

Baghdatis#1
12-28-2008, 11:46 PM
In about a week. I'll notify you. Probably when MD is released I believe. Sexysova, could you please correct me if I am wrong.

Ozone
12-28-2008, 11:47 PM
Thanks

Sexysova
12-28-2008, 11:56 PM
I'm really sry but I know nothing about ATP challengers.. you have to find out everything :shrug:

How do we do PYW? Do we use the MD for the first few tourneys?

Snoo Foo
12-29-2008, 12:33 AM
We always use the MD, for all the tourneys.

Where are we supposed to open the threads? In the Challengers forum? If so maybe they should make a subforum for 2009 PYW... or are we supposed to open them in PYW forum? If so maybe they should make a 2009 challengers subforum in PYW.... please advise :unsure:

Sexysova
12-29-2008, 06:20 AM
I told you that on TF they always open it in Challenger forums :) http://www.menstennisforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=19

you should either request a subforum or start posting normal threads.. in that big forum ;) you should ask admins or mods :)

Snoo Foo
12-29-2008, 08:02 AM
I told you

you told me? I don't know who you are. Or what TF is.

Sexysova
12-29-2008, 08:20 AM
TF is tennisforum.com

Can i run Wroclaw, Poland and St.Etienne, France ? I know how to run a PYW. The rules are the same as the Tennisforum.com PYW right?

Thanks for so much interest. I think You should open the tournament thread in challengers subforum and you should open a new thread for every round. As soon as the draw is out you post the thread. And preference only start at Monday because of late withdraws and replacements, and only post the draws when you now all the qualifiers.

12-29-2008, 11:33 AM
And in every tournament you run you have to send an excel file with the points eah player wins in that tournament.

Sexysova
12-29-2008, 12:40 PM
I won't do challenger rankings.. I'm here only to do ATP Tour :)

Australian_dream2009
12-29-2008, 01:26 PM
Shouldn't the challenger points count on ATP tour?

Sexysova
12-29-2008, 03:02 PM
nope.. it's absolutely different ;) on TF you can see they do it the same way ;) they have ranking & race for challengers ;)

Snoo Foo
12-29-2008, 03:21 PM
that's lame

Sexysova
12-29-2008, 03:39 PM
that's not.. because they do that PYW challengers has own Year-End-Championships.. and players who plays only challengers deserve to be well-ranked because some players play also ATP and then it's not fair..

Snoo Foo
12-29-2008, 03:42 PM
I don't understand.

Baghdatis#1
12-29-2008, 07:33 PM
We should combine the challenger points in the ATP rankings, since that is what they do in real-life. Stancho123, yes you may run those tournaments. How do I do an excel file? Can't we just send them in a PM? I think that the tournament organisers should send all of the points to Sexysova or Australian dream2009 in a PM.

Sexysova
12-29-2008, 10:22 PM
but you win just a few pts from challengers.. I won't combine it in my ATP TOUR rankings.. they also don't do it on Tennis Forum.. I won't do it too.. too much work..

I have the same question? Where do we open the thread and make the posts???? In the Challenger Series forum theres a sub-forum of PYW but it doesn't have any PYWs in it. There arent any other sub-forums that have it either? Where is it?:confused:

VamosVinchinzo and No Lets would like to Co-Run every Challenger in The United States of America. We are very good friends and have great ways of communication. Would this be okay?

Sure. I'll have to wait for more of the challengers to be added to the schedule though.

FilipeMB

yes

so please post live scores for Salinas's second record Thursday, finish second round Thursday 23:59 GMT, then open quarter final thread on Friday, closing it on Friday 23:59 GMT, doing the same for semifinal one on Saturday. :)
if matches aren't finished by the time you have to finish the round, please, then, use the method I suggested:

OK just for Thursday? Also CooCooCachoo told me not to open a new thread for each round but I think he only meant when there's more than one PYW challenger in the same week.
