That doubles draw can't be right - 5/6 and 7/8 can't be in the same group - at least, in singles they can't be, i'd imagine doubles is no different?

I have updated the document from last year. It's property of KarstenBraasch#1


Singles (http://filipo.hit.bg/TMC/TMC-2006.xls)

Doubles (http://filipo.hit.bg/TMC/TMC-2006-doubles.xls)


The only thing you have to do is to write the results of the matches. The final is 2 of 3, but in fact it's 3 of 5. i will ask KarstenBraasch#1 to fix this problem ;)

2006 ATP Official Rulebook:3) The final standings of each group shall be determined by the first of the following methods that apply:
a) Greatest number of wins;
b) Greatest number of matches played;
c) Head-to-head results if only two (2) players are tied, or if three (3) players are tied, then:
i) If three (3) players each have one win, a player having played less than all three (3) matches is automatically eliminated and the player advancing to the Single Elimination competition is the winner of the match-up of the two (2) players tied with 1-2 records; or
ii) Highest percentage of sets won; or
iii) Highest percentage of games won.
iv) If (i), (ii) or (iii) produce one superior player (first place), or one inferior player (third place), and the two remaining players are tied, the tie between those two players shall be broken by head-to-head record.
4) If ties still exist after the above procedures, the Steering Committee shall make the final determination.
