The starting of tournaments has been a key issue this season.

A poll will be opened later regarding this issue. What should the poll options be?

I think any tournament starting Sunday or before that has at least 5 matches being played should start on that day. I also think that any day with only 1 match except the final day should not count, this would result in tounament such as Bangkok this year starting on Tuesday instead of Monday which the board has voted on implementing on the fly in the current Bangkok tournament

Hi board,

You have transferred the beginning on Tuesday, it is proper.
But it was better to declare it at once when there was a schedule on Monday.

Thanks, purtov

I'm not sure I get what you're saying? Are you saying we should have made it Tuesday as soon as the Monday schedule came out?

We cannot be around the forum 24/7. I wasn't here, as soon as I saw the 1 match I Pmed the others,m and we came to our decision. We are not robots, these things take time, I thought we came to the decision in a timely manner, well before play started on Monday, and only about a hour after I first noticed it.

maybe there should be a rule that there should be at least 2 matches on Mondays OOP.

You have made in a timely manner, it I was mistaken, have incorrectly read readings of hours, I'm sorry.

Default Re: Suicide Tennis Suggestion/Discussion Thread

I agree with 156mphserve:

If Sunday has at least 4 o 5 games, it should start that day.
If Monday has only 1 game, it should start on Tuesday.
And, of course, point breakdown should be very clear for any possible situation (Sunday, Monday and Tuesday start - Saturday and Sunday end for ATP 250, ATP 500 and Masters).

In Tokyo, we only had 3 matches on Monday as well.

I think it's fair if we start on sunday in Shanghai.

But then, someone has to start a thread!

As for Tokyo:

In the point system there is no option for "no pick left" on day 7 which should bring more points than out on day 6. ...?

But there are 3 matches, that's enough to start on a Sunday, besides the Masters tend to start on a Sunday, so maybe you should think about changing the rule, at least for them.

I know, I agree, but we cannot just change this on the fly like we did with Bangkok. There, there was just 1 Monday match, which was just plain unfair to the players. Plus, moving the schedule forward would be unfair to people who expect it to start Monday like usual and not have enough time to get here today

I think there will be a poll in the offseason about when tournaments start, until then we will stick with the current rule

I agree that you can't change the rule right away, it's obviously too short notice to do it now, perhaps for Paris though, oh, not until the offseason, I see. You said before you thought it should be 5 matches if it were to start on a Sunday, wouldn't 3 suffice?
