Default Re: TT Changes 2013

COMMITMENTS

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, no changes

3) GS/IW/Miami week 2 events:
GS R16 - out of qualifying; GS QF - out of MD

4) Late entries & SE's:
Players who commit as late entries shouldn't be eligible to receive a SE

5) Doubles commitments:
It should be enough if only a player commits the doubles team

6) Singles commitments by another person?
Yes, only by doubles partners.


DRAWS

7) Late entries & seedings
Late entries shouldn't be seeded

8) Should there be a restriction to avoid singles R1 matches between doubles partners?
No


SENDING PICKS

9) Should picks which were sent to the person who posted the OOP be accepted?
No

10) Should picks sent by e-mail be accepted?
Yes, if an acceptable reason exists

11) Should there be a punishment for players who don't send picks?
Never


OOP

12) Standard minimum of TT matches in first rounds

5

13) Standardizing the OOP:

No - Manager's 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.

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?

No

16) PTS:

MY ONLY SUGGESTION

In PTS tiebreak system: There should be a new points distribution. I manage a game in a small forum where the aim is to have the closest prediction on a match. Distribution system is:

Hitting the winner: 25 pts
Hitting the number of sets played (you can only get points here if you get the winner): 50 pts
Guessing a scoreline on a wrong set (example, you pick player A to win 62 61 and he wins 76 62, you have 6-2 but in a different order): 75 pts each
Guessing a scoreline on the correct set (example, you pick player A to win 63 64 and he hines 63 76, you have 6-3 on the correct position): 125 pts each


RANKING POINTS

17) Qualifying points: There should be points for qualifying wins.

No

18) There should be a Team Race for the World Tour Finals.

Yes

OTHERS

19) Retirements should count for SR and shootout purposes

No

20) Challenger choices

Continent diversity and lists quality

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

No
