Doubles main draw sign-in deadline is Tuesday, January 18th at 7 pm on-site, so the draw will be made after that. I'll be in bed, you'll just be getting up, so be a dear and put it on my board if you think of it.

Thanks Fee, I will try to :yeah:

I saw that 20th Jan thing too, Siobhan--but I think that's far too late, they must've got that wrong...

Doubles starts on the Wednesday. They are still not sure which singles guys will play in the doubles and if they committ, it can change the shape of the draw with them using their singles rankings.

players can chose to use their singles rankings for entry purposes, but seedings are based on doubles rankings

They started using singles rankings last year to encourage the singles players to play and bring in more crowds.
