- You can only commit yourself to tournaments (no committing for your doubles partner, etc.)

- If you sign up for 2 tournaments in the same week and is not corrected prior to the final deadline, you are DQ'd from both tournaments that week. If you had only committed for doubles in 1 of the tournaments, you can remain in the doubles draw.

Re: TT 2012 Suggestions Thread (READ FIRST BEFORE POSTING)

I would have suggested the same idea sdtoot came up with. The idea is that there is no specific way on which the OOP is set. It's up to the manager to decide which matches to come first and the manager isn't always right so it's a bit lucky here, but with the idea sdtoot is suggesting actually the better player wins.

- I would also suggest that we use GD instead of PTS as it also says who was closer to the actual score for example Player A won 76 64. In TT we have Player A choosing 60 76 and another player B choosing 75 75. With PTS Player A would win but actually player B was closer to the real score and would win on GD.
- Another thing if we keep using PTS maybe we shouldn't give points to the correct scoreline except if it was in the correct set like if a match ends 63 64. Why wouldn't a player who picked 63 64 win over another player who won 64 63?
Last thing hopefully we'll get a clarification about the issue with sending with email.


Thanks

I suggest that there be 5 32 player main draws for World Tour Finals week like normal instead of 4.

There was a problem once when some people had sent picks via email (I think orangehat was a manager then). There was a huge discussion there and we should make straight rules here.

Yeah, I think if they're sent to the wrong person then they should still be counted.

For example:-

OOP
SR1 : Berrer vs Ebden (Actual result Berrer wins 2-0)
SR2 : Mayer vs Haas (Actual result Haas wins 2-0)
SR3 : Cilic vs Andujar (Actual result Andujar wins 2-0)
SR4 : Gasquet vs Fognini (Actual result Fognini wins 2-0)

Player A
Berrer 2-0
Mayer 2-1
Cilic 2-0
Gasquet 2-0

Player B
Berrer 2-0
Mayer 2-0
Cilic 2-1
Gasquet 2-1

In the above example, Player A wins on Shootout SR2 by giving a set to the winner, but player B gave a set to the winner in SR3 & SR4, so therefore has made better picks overall and deserves to be the winner.
Considering what sdtoot suggested, what could be done is to count the number of sets given to the winner when both players pick the loser, as it's already used as a tie-breaker when the matches go to the SR shootout.

Transforming Martin's post into suggestions, these are two of the solutions I can remember that have been proposed in the past:
1. Players who're still alive in the GS (or IW/Miami) by Saturday (GS R16) should be out of the 2nd week challengers, MD or qualifying.
2. Players should be able to commit to the 2nd week challengers only after they're out of the GSs/IW/Miami.

It's not a suggestion as such - but there have been occasions this year where commitments of players by their doubles partners have gone un-noticed by managers, people have also committed with other players unknown to that player.

It might be worth discussing this further as to whether both players in a doubles partnership have to commit/confirm before being accepted on an Entry List which might possibly help to solve this problem??

Re: TT 2012 Suggestions Thread (READ FIRST BEFORE POSTING)

Players who are LE (after first deadline) should not be given BYEs in Q draw because of their high seeding.

It seems illogical that you can get a bye to MD with a lower rank than an LE if there are less than 28 entries, but if there are more than 28 entries those with the lowest rank will likely have to play a match despite signing up on time.

I just have another easy suggestion: pay more attention to the qualification and especially for the Q1 in some ATP250/500/Challenger event. If you win, I think you should have some points. It will encourage the beginners. Indeed, one can consider that if you win a match in Q1 and loose in Q2, you will be not rewarded, and you will not score.. That's my opinion!
Great idea
Yeah I agree. Maybe not in CH, but in ATP 250/500, yeah I agree

Re: TT 2012 Suggestions Thread (READ FIRST BEFORE POSTING)

Only players committed to a tournament 48h before the final deadline (this is, usually Wednesday at 6PM) can ask for a SE. I don't like people getting into tournaments only when they know they will have a SE.

Also what about calendar tournaments, how do you think is better to select tournament.
