Commit here if you would like to be a Suicide Tennis Manager. I think managers should set the number of people they want as a maximum to play the event as they may not have the time contraints to have an unlimited about of people playing the event. Players can only play one event a week.


Here are the following managers:

I agree!

we have to decide how many tournaments to run weekly in Suicide Tennis - if we have many players we can run more than one, but there must be a minimum number of players in order to run a tourney, I think...
May be it's good idea to stick to the original ATP-draw of every tourney...

btw I'll take Australian Open and some of the warm-up tournaments (if no managers for them appear)

What i mean by player limit is that some managers might not have the time requirements to have say 100 people in a tournament and that is why they have have a maximum amount of people that they will allow play the tournament they are running but that is why there are more than 1 tournament a week.

Yemok what i mean is do you want me to put next to AO that you do not want a limit on the amount of people that can play AO and therefore ul (unlimitied)?

Usually - yes. But imagine some small tournament with 50-60 suiciders and 14-15 winners on Sunday (it's possible) ... sounds a little bit stupid, I think.
So that's another reason to play more than 1 tournament in a week

2 fields with 25 participants is better than one with 50

or? :)

Managers should commit if they have time :p It's the kind of game that doesn't need it. :shrug: There's no need for a maximum amount of players, just run more than one tournament a week and let they play only of one them.

SOMETHING URGENT!

21 players didn't post day1 pick (usually 2-3-4 forget to do it). I think the reason might be the initial suggestion to start the game on Tuesday. Some of the people probably saw the message and stop checking the thread before the start of TMC. I think we can't throw these players out because of this, so I'll send PM to everyone of them to choose one of day1 winners and post it together with day2 pick, something like that:

Day 1: Federer
Day 2: Robredo

These players will have an advantage because not risking anything on day1, but still I think that's the best decision, because it's not their fault. And finally - that's the last tournament of the year, after Shanghai the rankings will be restarted and no one really can be harmed ;)

what do you think?

hmmm... i don't think that's quite fair... same rules should apply with TT where late tips are considered as losers... :p

I also think that if they didn't check the thread that is their fault. No final decision was made on a Tuesday start so letting them in would be very unfair IMO.

i think they should not be allowed in..

1) they might have thought the 1st day of the tournament was on a monday, hence they did not check

2) it will be unfair to those who picked Ivan on the 1st day and its possible that those who did not send picks in on sunday might have picked ivan too

3) its the players' responsibility to keep checking the thread for updates

It's not just like that
If you check the thread and you see that the game will start @ tuesday there is no obligation to re-check this frequently... there was such a message (the post was online around 14-15hours), so if someone is guilty on something that would be me and I will withdraw if someone have to pay the disadvantage. Let people play pls :) I remind you that this will affect in no way your performance (and the points gathered here will not count when 2007 starts) and now we're still just building and setting up the game in order to run smoothly and constantly in 2007. I'm sure it's better to let someone play with very slight advantage than to pull out someone who likes the game and made nothing wrong. And these who'll post day1&day2 picks wouldn't be many. so we're talkin about 4-5 players I think... and they will be in the situation of the most people (17 picked Roddick and 9 Roger), so it's not the biggest advantage in the world, yeah? :wavey:

yes, it' true, that's why i explained more detailed the side-details, in order the people here to reconsider (it happen before), because it's really not big deal, I think, nobody will get the winner's paycheck or the Mercedes ;) and we can lose someone for nothing...

but if you all still think the same way I'll comply with, of course!
if 3 of you insist on take the day1-non-pickers out of the tourney I'll do it

C'mon guys, it's only a game :)

DEFINATELY NOT FAIR


ONE THING can be an OOP of a .. challenger..master series, atp tournament, grand slam.. a big draw..

THIS is the MASTERS CUP! 2 matches a day

if you 're not AWARE that a MASTERS CUP MATCH is being played the following you shouldnt be playing

Its not like there were 8 matches.. or different orders of play

everyone knows when and where a masters cup is played


If you didnt take the work to post a pick.. you shouldnt be playing.. and should be disqualified

the thing is.. i think it could be understood on other kind of tournament but not on an 8 draw RR tournament

2 matches a day..

if they still are on the game.. then you should allow the 9 players that lost to keep winning.. and you should leave US..the other guys who guessed.. a second chance in the future..

yemok
11-12-2006, 08:26 PM
...


I'm afraid you hadn't understood the problem at all :)
you need to go through both suiced-threads to see the whole situation
these people might me misguided, the situation for some of them is different from the usual ohh-i-forgot-to-send-the-goddamned-picks-again-situation

and till now only 3 of the non-day1pickeckers had posted, so...
it's not worth it to discuss ;)

welcome & thanks in advance :wavey:

superhoops & others, we have to figure out these weeks how the decisions in SuicideTennis will be taken - quick polls, some kind of a board, or something else.
by situations like this it'll be good to know clearly who or what will solve the problem :bs:

During the off season rules need to be written up about this. You need to make the decision in this case.

I think with don't need commitments. Only players that send their pick for day 1 can play. I play "Suicide!" on WTA and most times I don't commit, I just go there and make my day 1 pick. I think commitment list isn't needed. If you don't make your Day 1 Pick, you are out.

We all know that TMC was starting on Sunday...

since we'll run more than one tournament in a week commitments are even more needed in order to plan (otherwise some players might not play that week because the tourney they wanna play have only 2-3 more suiciders, for example)

11-13-2006, 01:02 AM
anyways, its not the case

everyone knew TMC was starting on sunday

the rules are clear

you might have said "start on tuesday" but there was also said "DAY1, DAY2"...

Everyone knew RR started on sunday..

it would made no sense if the tournament started on Day 3 or 4.. in the middle of RR

I know you might feel guilty.. but.. everyone knew TMC started SUNDAY and tournamnets start from DAY1...


No one is stupid enough to think a Suicide Tennis Tournamnet starts in the middle of the actual tournament.. and this is my first time..

i know you want more people playing but..nevertheless.. as i said..

EVERYONE knew TMC started on Sunday.. exactly when this kind of games start

prove me wrong if not

11-13-2006, 01:33 AM

you're still not in the case and it'll be really long and boring to explain you the whole story post by post, and right now I really don't have the time to argue and prove you something that doesn't really matter anymore. Shanghai is the only round-robin tournament in the SuicideTennis-calendar, there are no more questions about the way of running it, everything is clear and this case can't happen anymore :wavey:

I still dont think it is fair for the guys who really risked a chance of going out of the tournamnet -and this is something i "understand".. i made a pick with a risk of losing..they didnt- but i respect the manager, which happens to be you! so.. your rules! your saying! :p

This draw limit in Suicide is really unnecessary.

superhoops
12-02-2006, 11:27 AM
Johnny has moved to Chennai and i have increased my draw size to 40.

yemok
12-03-2006, 07:11 AM
This draw limit in Suicide is really unnecessary.

I'm prone to think that this is actually true. We have around 50-60 Suicide players with not everyone playing every week. We surely can't set a limit for a Grand Slam & Masters Series tournament. In every regular week we have at least 2 tournaments (the exception are the tournaments just before French Open and US Open). So we'll have no more than 25-30 players pro tournament in regular weeks and this makes draw-limit unnecessary. IF a manager face 40-45 players - well, this is still better than GS and MS, and I'm sure the manager can handle (paying the bitter price of 3-4 minutes more :) )

p.s. another problem coming with players-limit will be the entry system. Example: one tournament with 32 limit, the first 32 are entering the tournament, and the others have the only chance to turn into majorettes... respectively the process of commitment will transform into a rat race :drive:

And after all - that's not really fair :wavey:

superhoops
12-03-2006, 01:08 PM
Im sure the draw sizes will never fill up. GS and MS have to be unlimited.

superhoops
12-20-2006, 06:06 PM
I am off the week of Doha so i will make the draw unlimited.

yemok
12-29-2006, 05:49 AM
something to discuss:
this week we have so far 24 players in Doha and 8 in Chennai. I'm sure the difference is big only because Chennai's thread was created later than Doha's (nothing wrong done by Johnny of course, that's the first time we are running two suicide-tournaments in one week and the problem appear just now :Q).

suggestion: when we have more than one tourney in a week the managers have to open threads in similar time. I think we can take the Tuesday before the beginning of the tournament around 20h CET...

if you have better idea - put it on the table

:wavey:

interesting :)

(btw Happy New Year :Q)

that's what the rules posted on first page say: ' * Pick one player per day (not per round) to win; if he wins, you are still in the game, if he loses, you are out.'

you (and no one before) had not clarified that the player have to be taken from the main draw, so we have to take the Bastl pick as a valid (I think). But this must not happen again, so i suggest to add in the future ' * Pick one player from the main draw per day (not per round) to win; if he wins, you are still in the game, if he loses, you are out.'

and if similar situation happens agains there will be no doubt that the pick has to be treated as invalid

Week of 12/2 are we running all three? I know it's on there, but would there be enough players?

Was there ever a decision about whether to have more than one per week or not?

We have waited a couple of weeks and I think 1 Tourny is enough per week.

More Tournies Added. Pick 1 Tourny from the week and i will delete the others that week.

For Miami + IW you can say if you want someone to help as a lot of people might want to enter it.

Which one then, is there some specific way of deciding?

I think we all agree it's better to run only 1 tournament per week. I suggest to run the biggest tournament, for february/march something like that:

12/02/2007 Marseille shootingstar
19/02/2007 Memphis ExcaliburII (here Rotterdam is on the same level, but maybe is good to change surface and players, so we pick not the same players two weeks in a row)
26/02/2007 Dubai ???

05/03/2007 Indian Wells
19/03/2007 Miami

if you have something else in mind - just share

Here's a copy of what I posted in the Suicide Monte Carlo thread...I'm sorry, I'll get a lot of complaints about the situation, but it's nothing I could control. I thought I should let all of you fellow managers know the facts as well. I was at home, I posted on the board here, and was about to start an update when I got a call on my cell. I got in my car to go pick up my sister, and on my way I was hit by a drunk driver. I spent the night in Hospital, and was unable to do any updates etc. I am sincerly sorry that I couldn't complete my duties as Manager for the first 2 days of the game, and it won't happen again. Below is a copy of the note I posted in the Suicise Monte Carlo thread...

Hi everyone

I apologise for the late updates etc. I was hit by a drunk driver late yesterday evening, and I spent the night in the Hospital. I'm working on an update now. If I've made any errors or spelling mistakes etc, PM me and let me know (I'm on a few pain killers, and it might affect my typing skils etc.) I'm sorry everything is not up yet...I will be on time with all the rest of my updates, I swear!

This is suicide not TT and as yemok rightly said if people reserved tournies it would be unfair and we would eventually get commits years in advance. I have always maintained that people can only commit to tournies when they became available and to make it even more fair i didn't say when they would become available so people didn't com on in a potential time when in their timezone it would not be possible (if that makes sense). Im sorry if it didn't work out for you and i appreciate what you have done for Suicide this year but i think this is fair and will stick to Snowwy taking Wimby.

ok, as you wish. It seems Europeans continue to be very closed minded (as they were about 500 years ago). Any suggestion that I make, all board members discuss and not in my favour. I think we should start accepting different views, and always try to make things better for the game and not better for each individual.

Anyone who wants Queens can have it. I don't care how many tournies you have had or are planned to have. First person to post to say they want it gets it.

I think ExcaliberII already did.

Yes.
And I think we should move the tournament to Gstaad or Bastad, everyone is tired of the combination grass + very bad weather in England which could do a lot of trouble for Suicide Tennis. And the entry list in Newport starts from world number 31 involving many players outside top 100 (players in both other tournaments way better).

Maybe you should write somewhere in the Wimby Suicide thread that manager is needed...? :scratch:

Hi...I was going to open the thread today (Saturday)...I'd be more than happy to run either Bastad or Gstaad instead of Newport. I'd also be okay with someone else doing it if they wanted to. Either way is cool with me

Yes it is...but the players list in Newport is much weaker than in the other two tournaments.

I'm going to wait a few hours to open the thread, and if I don't hear anything with regards to a change of place, it'll be in Newport (weak field and all :)).

Johnny, it's up to you to decide where to run the tournament (just let everyone else know @ the Wimby thread). I'm sure it's better to run a tourney with cooler line up (Bastad or Gstaad, it doesn't matter I think), we had a lof of complains earlier this year about chosing the Buenos Aires tournament instead of much better alternatives...

After a PM from yemok, I decided to change the suicide tournament to GSTAAD. The thread has now been opened, and I posted a message in the suicide Wimbledon thread to let people know that the next tournament will be in Gastaad.

ExcaliberII was suppose to but he hasnt been around since the 12th of July so I will open the thread and if he comes he can take over or have another tournament sometime.

On a sidenote, I think Suicide Tennis needs better management, it seems that the board doesnt really care at all about it besides yemok.
