It only happened because I don't have time to do anything on here, and am doing all my posting from my phone. I mixed up Mons and Rennes, stupidly.
Good luck in the rest of it. I'm going to retire from TT after Moscow, I don't like making mistakes that affect other people, and my life isn't going to change in the short term, so it's better if I leave the game I think.
Good luck in the rest of the tournament all.
Oh, and apologies, again to my partner. If you want to switch partners in Moscow I understand. Sorry to let you down.
We all hope you won't retire. But I think that is why both people should have to commit and confirm the commitment. And not just let one person do it! It makes for a doubt check of who is entering what TT and who they are playing Doubles with, if they are playing Doubles.
