Default Re: TT Changes 2013

1)Should players be allowed to play in two places at the same time (the final of a week X event AND the qualifying of a week x+1 event)?

Yes

2) Should players who lose in a Grand Slam qualifying be allowed to play a challenger in the following week?

Yes (but no if qualifying points were introduced)

3) GS/IW/Miami week 2 events:

GS R16 - out of qualifying; GS QF - out of MD? (current rule)

Players should be able to commit to the 2nd week challengers only after they're out of the GSs/IW/Miami

4) Late entries & SE's:

No restrictions? (current rule)
Players who commit as late entries 48 hours or less before the final deadline shouldn't be eligible to receive a SE?
Players who commit as late entries shouldn't be eligible to receive a SE?

Players who commit as late entries 48 hours or less before the final deadline shouldn't be eligible to receive a SE?


5) Doubles commitments:
It should be enough if only a player commits the doubles team? (current rule)
Both players in a partnership should commit/confirm before being accepted in the doubles list

It should be enough if only a player commits the doubles team? (current rule)




6) Singles commitments by another person?

Yes/No (Current rule: yes)

No


DRAWS


7) Late entries & seedings
No restrictions? (current rule)
Late entries shouldn't be seeded?


No restrictions



8) Should there be a restriction to avoid singles R1 matches between doubles partners?
Yes/No (Current rule: no)

No of course not – that’s part of the fun and luck of the game


SENDING PICKS


9) Should picks which were sent to the person who posted the OOP be accepted?
Yes/No (Current rule: no)

No


10) Should picks sent by e-mail be accepted?

Yes/No/Facebook? (Current rule: yes)

Yes – but only in cases when the site is down


11) Should there be a punishment for players who don't send picks?

Yes/No (Current rule: no)

Definitely yes – it damaging for the future of game when new players join and pair up with people who don’t send – can cause them to lose interest in the game and drop out.



OOP


12) Standard minimum of TT matches in first rounds (4, 5, 6, 7, no restrictions?)

No restrictions - would prefer it to stay in the managers hands


13) Standardizing the OOP:

No - Manager's choice (Current rule)
Yes - The order should be decided by the number of differences of each match: more diffs -> higher in the SR order?
Yes - The order should be decided by the order of the matches in the official OOP: left to right or top to bottom?

No - Definitely should stay the Managers Choice


TB System


14) TB method: The number of sets given to the winner when the player picks the loser (2-1, 3-2 & 3-1 losing picks) should be a tie-breaker before the SR shootout.
Yes/No (Curret rule: no)

No


15) SR Shootout: Picking the correct winner or SR of a lower SR should have priority over giving a set to the winner when both players pick the loser in a higher SR?
Yes/No (Current rule: no)

No

16) PTS:
Correct order of sets should always beat correct scorelines?
GD should be used as the PTS system?

No



RANKING POINTS

17) Qualifying points: There should be points for qualifying wins.
Yes/No (Current rule: no)

18) There should be a Team Race for the World Tour Finals.
Yes/No (Current rule: no)

No





OTHERS

19) Retirements should count for SR and shootout purposes (64 40 ret -> 64 60 win; 46 23 ret -> 46 63 60 win)?

I would say yes – but only if one whole set had been completed



20) Challenger choices: ranking points/entry list quality or diversity of continents/timezones?

Diversity – and depending on which managers are available




21) Possible exception: Accepting picks 1/2/3/4/5 minutes after the deadline?

A massive NO
