When we finish discussing about this, I will open the topic for making teams for next season

Not sure, I like the 4/team, but I see how that can cause problems. There is no rush to open the thread now, DC is still in 2 months.

I mean, in Doha week I post it, ok?
I think the max of 4 per team is pretty good, a lot of players in a team could disconfigure the whole concept in a Davis Cup team.
We can set up like reserve players (in case somebody in the team does not post). Reserve players would exist only in team with high popularity (like Argentina, USA, etc).
We would still do that division I said because there will be no way we will get 16 teams with 4 players so, only teams with 2 players to 4 players would be allowed.

Back in Suicide's early days people were allowed the occasional instance of this. It's just that occasionally I don't get home from work in time to make a selection before play starts depending on what tournament is selected for this game. (In TT I try to make sure I commit to an appropriately timed tournament but in this game I have no choice which one will be used)
i agree really good idea !

Somebody has something to add about Davis Cup?
It's 6 weeks away and I think I'll open the thread here to people organize themselves.

It is a suggestion thread and rules are not closed until the moment I open the thread for teams to join the Davis Cup.
That's why I asked with someone had something else to add or modify.

Maybe the top 16 countries of the players in the rankings will be elgibile?

That's a good idea. But, and the other players/country? Do you have something in mind?

Say for example, no.1 is from usa, no.2 is from usa..
so it will be counted as 1 country.. so we will go down to ranking number 17 .. so on and so for..

hmm.. then maybe there will be a world group or something lydat ? ( like tt? )

or they can adopt the top 16 countries flag , which is subject to approval from the captains of the top 16 countries?

But we don't have that kind of information in our rankings. I mean, i'd have to search for 181 players nationality or the nationality they'd want to use.
