Technically speaking the CET time is wrong, as CET is without DST, with DST it is called CEST so 11am New York Time is 4pm CET, but 5pm CEST. tipler's picks was sent at 11:21 am New York Time.

So the question is, is it relevant if the CET time is wrong as the deadline is posted in Local time, and CET just given as a reference?

If so:


as long as you sent before the deadline he posted they will be accepted. HOWEVER, those that were in session between the actual deadline and the deadline posted, will be voided on your differences @BobbaBobb

Can someone please check the thread http://www.menstennisforums.com/36206521-post95.html to confirm ?

I see you got it.

You did it exactly right. Ask provisionally when you reach the SF and then you get it if you reach the F. Have to ask before 2nd deadline and normally you won't know if you've reached the final at that time.
Thanks Markus
