Re: TT 2012 - Wild cards?

I voted no

but I would be cool with defending champions getting a WC. That's the only one I could accept. The points based system for WC is essentially just a different ranking.

Re: TT 2012 - Wild cards?

I voted No. I think it would complicate TT even more and I'm not in favor of adding anything that would do that!

rvugt I really do like the idea of WCs. I have been saying that for a couple of years. But i do agree with everybody, that it is really tough to implement it. But for sure, i like that we try to keep the game as close to the real game as possible. That is why i would suggest some sort of wildcards.

By just saying that every tournament has one wildcard and the manager can decide who will get it. But no player can get more than 3 wcs a year. If a manager doesn't give out a wildcard, he isn't forced to, but he can.

In this way, managers get more priviliges. That is nice, as managers get rarer.

Re: TT 2012 - Wild cards?

I voted yes, but I must specify that nly for this choice:
WC for SOME challenger champions.
Otherwise it would get way too complicated.

Well you are trying to play a CH and you are ranked around 10, though I suppose you call DC a special circumstance, but in the ATP the players who don't play DC are still not allowed to play CH's without a WC.

The only part that I would support without reservation is a WC for defending champions who for whatever reason cannot get direct entry.

I have followed this discussion about points based system, and I find those... tolerable.. but still not my preference.
I agree with every word

Re: TT 2012 - Wild cards?

I voted NO because it only adds more work for managers, it gives a higher chance of errors and problems but it doesn't really 'add' anything to the game.

In the case it was finally approved, I'd find fair anything but WC for given by managers, WC given to managers and WC by nationality.

Re: TT 2012 - Wild cards?

Poll time (TT players only). Do you think WCs should be implemented? If yes, please specify which of the ideas (or combination of ideas) you would prefer:

I voted yes My answers are in red. and what I agree more are in red/bold

- WC for challenger champions - Agree

- WC points based system I think this is the best, discuss this best and decided everything. I think that I already said, but If you want I will like very much do this

- Grand Slam WC(s) - Challenger points (preceeding the GS)

- WC for defending champions - Can be if they canīt entry in the MD

- Managers choice - Only if more than two people ask and maybe they shoul do a text where explain why they shoul received a WC.

- WC for managers No! So everybody becomes manager ahahha

- Nationality - Yes and No :S Itīs unfair for you donīt have tournaments in their countries ou donīt have very tournaments. But for example I donīt won a CH but I like very play in the MD of Estoril Open. (for example)

- Other

These are some of the points that should be considered:

- Which events should give WCs - ATP 250/500/1000 and GS
- Number of WCs per tournament 2
- Number of WCs per player 3
- Who should be eligible to get a WC - Everyone who are not in top 50. And donīt can get entry in the MD
- Benefits of a WC system x amount of additional work/complications it may cause - I think managers shoul decided this point, but it is by system, challengers champions, donīt give many work for the managers.

I voted for "No" as I wanna avoid as much bureaucracy as possible.

Re: TT 2012 - Wild cards?

I think when discussing WC's we have to include SE's too, I've made my points as to why this is.
