Youzhny cannot play due to illness. There is speculation on the forum about this before the deadline but noone knows exactly when the news broke. Deadline for suicide picks are one hour behind the beginning of these speculations but ahead of the official confirmation that he will not play. Is Youzhny's opponent a legal pick now?
This is a completly diferent scenario and problem. Because both of them will eliminate anyone who picks both? So its legal in someway. But just like if i pick a player who isnt playing that day, you or anyone whos in that thread will ussually warn us that he isnt playing.

But to asnwer your question Picking Youzhyn before or after 1pm is a legal pick, and it lies on the picker to make sure he is playing. Thats not what happen and not why im making such a fuzz.

My problem is ( in this case scenario ) who ever pick his opponent( youzhny´s) doesnt get credit for him advancing. But managers playing next round can pick him because he is eligble ( if they havent used him before.


Lilotes i think i asnwered you this time do you at least undestrand my point or my problem?

If i picked the russian and didnt know or could change my pick before 3pm then its on me and no problem, but picking his opponent and he goes to next round that is my problem.

I would like to participate in discussion of rules-2015.
I can not understand, where the object of discussion is located.
Where (in what post) to read rules-2014?
Who in board now?
Who is the president of board?

I don't know of any rule thread, game is pretty simple, rules are basically given in this model tread:
http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=155402

Anything we change would probably be implemented in this model thread rather than creating a rules thread. Though, I guess we could make a rules thread also. I'll look into the possibility and discuss it with the rest of the board.


We haven't really had rule reviews like in TT. That does not mean we couldn't have one, sounds like a good suggestion to me. If you have suggestions for rule changes you can submit them whenever you want to.

The board:
156mphserve
rvugt
CoolyBri
dinkulpus
Litotes

We have no president.

It is a part of rules which is sent in thread of each tournament.
I suggest to add the following after paragraph 7:

It is necessary to have full rules also.

Well without the president! Nobody is responsible.

The proposed rule makes a lot of sense and is uncontroversial, I will add it to the model thread. As for the rule thread I will discuss that with my fellow board members, just on a slightly more quiet day (for me)
