I have 3 LLs to put in my MD for Nottingham due to RG related withdrawals.

So I'm sorting my 4 final round qualifying losers, and have my first 2. One of the last 2 is in and the other is out, right? Except, the last 2 to choose between are doubles partners, who have sent identical picks for both rounds of qualifying, and thus have identical scores and SRs

How do I choose which one is automatically in? Ranking?
Yeah, ranking if there are no other differences.

Yes, there is no other way to distinguish. You'd go down the regular tiebreak system, and ranking *is* there as a last option.

Can a LL from qualifying be a seed if the main draw is done after qualifying is over?

Try as I might, I don't think I understand the rule about doubles order when two teams have the same total ranking.

If I have one team who are

109+121 = 230

and another who are

117 + 113 = 230

which goes first in the entry list?

Another SE question, this one very hypothetical, I'm not even sure it makes sense, but SEs always leave me confused.

Say you have a tournament with only 31 players by the Friday deadline. One of these 31 is a low ranked player who would be SE eligible if the tournament were full, say an LE NR who made a final that week. The manager pushes back the deadline to Sunday to try and fill the draw, and two ranked players enter, leaving our LE NR as an alternate. Has the SE spot already cleared, or can the player apply for it?

I know that it wouldn't make sense to have the SE be given on Sunday, since it's supposed to be to avoid playing qualies and a final simultaneously, but it also seems somewhat unfair to the player in question. Plus, as I said, SE's confuse me

I suspect that the SEs clear on Friday, so that anything that happens afterwards, they're gone, but I'm not sure. This probably will never come up, but it's bothering me anyways. There's probably a simple answer, I just have gotten myself so off on this tangent I can't escape

I think if you extend deadline, you can't accept more than 1 player in that situation
it would be quite unfair for the people who checked on Friday's evening they don't need to play qualies and are sure that tournament starts on Monday
but to be honest, this is only my idea, don't know how it works "officialy"

Haha, makes sense. Probably the simple answer I was not thinking of

You need to commit for tournaments you want to play a week or two in advance. I think next week's tournaments are all full so you can start with the US Open qualifying. You need to go to the thread and commit, and also read the first post for all the rules and instructions. Ask in the thread if you have any questions. Qualifying starts next week Tuesday and if you miss the deadline then you're out so you better not miss it

After USO, you can play some Challengers because your ranking won't be high enough to enter ATP events. Good luck
