I think the Davis Cup idea is good, but we should put the restriction that the player picken cant be picked again in the whole DavisCup year.

I love the DC idea, but I dont like the qualifiers idea. It kinda discourages new players.

Yes, but qualies will be played only by players who dont make the cut, although i dont think its a very good idea.

Yes, if it's decided to have a cut, then qualy will happen. Otherwise, it's senseless.

I feel

that there is no point in having suicide qualifying, even if there are alot of people playing in future..

point is that, qualifying mostly takes place on sat and sun, and basically , we can say that this will just be a 2 day tournament ( do or die mentality ) for those involved in qualies.

So if some big shot ( like tursonov wanting to play qualies to get used to court ) decides to play qualies, i'm sure all, if not most, will pick him, and imagine he loses. there will be no qualifiers

suicide is unlike tt, where there will surely be a winner , cause its a head to head comparision, so unless we change e system ( like sending picks to managers ) , i find it hard to implement qualies.

not to forget that, there are not alot of pple

Yep qualifying in suicide is pointless. There aren't enough players to worry about it and I think this game is better with more players anyway

Summary of Suggestions

Sunday Start

Pros:
Sunday start makes game more excitings (only 2 or 3 matches to pick from)

Cons:
Mass suicides on Sunday
People forget to send picks for Sunday

Davis Cup - Explained http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...2&postcount=13

My question about this is..four people play per country? (Countries like USA can have more than 1 team)


Poll for first suggestion will be posted tomorrow.

No limit for number of players by countries because final score will be generated by the division of the total amount of points made by the team divided by the number players so all countries will have the same condition to win, even the country is made by only 1 player.
We still can set a limit of players by country just in matters of realism.
