I can't propose one actually, cause the only solution I'd be happy with, is the elimination of bonus points. At the very least it should be voted on by the FMTA players in a poll.

1 bonus point isn't going to be of any major benefit.

Re: FMTA Rules

the bonus point system is like the new masters series draw of giving the top 8 byes into the 2nd rd.

Re: FMTA Rules

Since I am anti-bonus points in a big way, it just makes the game less fair and continues the cycle, but they seem to be here to stay for the moment.

So how about giving bonus points to players who beat the top ones? You know to the players that don't have them, but somehow manage to win.

At rome this will be correctly done.
Ok, it's just that you also PMed me telling me that I had 2 bonus points this week when I queried when I should have actually had 7

I hope it will all be fixed up in the future

Re: FMTA Rules

The only aspect lacking with bonus points is the clarity. This should be clearly defined within the template for each tournament thread which has not been done lately. All this confusion can easily be avoided. It's upto the managers.

Re: FMTA Rules

I again want to query the use of bonus points.

There seems to have been a lot of confusion at Estoril this week because bonus points have been a lot less than usual. For my singles match during the week I (Pavel) was given 2 bonus points... +1 for my 6th-10th ranking in singles and +1 for being a European playing in Europe. When asked why my +5 points weren't being added as well for my #1 doubles ranking I was told that I would get 6 bonus points for my doubles match but still only the 2 for my singles match.... this is not the way it has worked the past.

I went back to the Miami FMTA thread to find these posts:

So all players reaching quarterfinals in singles or better and doubles semifinals or better you get bonus points.

#7 Igor Andreev (Russia).................................115(TB)+3 = 118(TB)
#8 Paul Capdeville (Chile)...............................115(TB)+3 = 118
It shows here that singles AND doubles matches bonus points were added together for use in singles AND doubles matches... therefore all the bonus points were wrong for this week because I only got +2 and I saw also that Coria only got +3 when he is joint #1 for doubles so also should have got at least 5 bonus points.

mmm
What do you think about this?

Usa players playing at home +1
Europeans playing at Europe +1
Europeans playing at home +2
South Americans playing at home +3
South Americans playing at South America +2
Asians playing at Asia +2
hmm it all seems just about right as far as I can see... but Asia should become Australasia because there needs to be an advantage for Australian tournaments/players as well
