Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

I don't play, but it seems like having a tennis ball in your pocket pressed against your thigh, or bouncing against it, would be supremely annoying and distracting. Do players have some sort of...

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Here's a stupid question.

I'm terrible at facial recognition outside the big 4 and my faves.

Whose that in yellow on the right of the current main ATP page? (The toggle through pics like this every...

Re: Funny Fotos #8

I think the pink stuff is salmon. The fried eggs look like the plastic ones used in photo shoots and are defying gravity. What's that they're drinking? Beet juice? *shudder*

Re: Tennis Tipping Rules & Questions

Okay, are you accusing me of trying to be shifty or cheat here? I overlooked that doubles starts on Sunday, so I retract that part of my earlier comment, but I still want to know if you think I'm...

Oh, lol! Whoops. But my point stands. Look into the crowd in Madrid and it's a sea of white fedoras. :ras:

Everyone across MTF is criticizing the Madrid tournament for different reasons, but not for the same reason I would: Those stupid hats you can see in this pic. 2/3rds of the crowd are wearing them. I...

Re: Tennis Tipping Rules & Questions

Can I get a citation for the bolded? Because the only mention of time zones in the code of conduct pretty squarely puts this on the manager:



Although I guess it's true that it just says s/he has...

Re: Tennis Tipping Rules & Questions

And yes, he did report the correct local time, but he wrote that it was the same as CET, which as I've gone to great pains to document, it's not. I think it is reasonable for me to just plug in "CET...

Re: Tennis Tipping Rules & Questions

But he wrote CET, not CEST (see very bottom: http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=28440282&postcount=3)....

I did. Did you click on mine? Because it says something different. I'm sorry to have used such an obscure, trifling website like Google instead of "wwp.greenwichmeantime.com." Here, I've created...

Re: Tennis Tipping Rules & Questions

I assume you are being sarcastic, but you're not looking at this from my point of view. I'm not European. If you guys use CET and CEST interchangeably, I wouldn't know that. If you plug CET into...

Re: Tennis Tipping Rules & Questions

Looking at it further, the problem is CEST, not CET, is the time zone Bourdeaux in in. He wrote CET in your post and, as I've documented, CET without "summer" time is still a thing and that's what I...

Re: Tennis Tipping Rules & Questions

Have a possible matter for dispute resolution here....

They are NOT the same! Don't take my word for it, plug "CET time" into Google, and then do the same for "Time in Bourdeax," like I did in the screenshot I provided. Or do the same at timeanddate.com.

Re: TENNIS TIPPING #19b Bordeaux (CH*) -- Singles Q starts, OOP at #3 and #91

No, I did send it at 10:09 CET. You wrote that the deadline it 10:30 local time, which is 10:30 CET. But looking into it now, that's not correct - Bordeaux is an hour ahead of CET. See screenshot...

It's 10:09 CET, and I just sent in my picks, so I'm good, yes yes?

Re: Tennis Tipping #18d - Cali. Tuesday OOP in post #101 and #8

I was referring to disagreeing with KyleM, and realized how it looked like I disagreed with you, and tried to ninja-edit but too late. :-(

Re: Tennis Tipping #18d - Cali. Tuesday OOP in post #101 and #8

And for my part, I strongly disagree with you, and think being less wrong in a given round is a more worthy tiebreaker than being more right in previous rounds.
