OMG American Challengers

I'm going to bed now, no OOP released for tomorrow and no results from half of today's matches :retard: Probably it will be updated the minute I log off.

Could someone post the OOP if it gets released? If not I'll do it when I get up in 5 hours.

The reasoning for the rule as it is now is for committing a doubles partner when you are waiting to see where you can make main draw cuts into... sometimes managers don't keep their lists updated and sometimes it comes down to the wire knowing where you and your partner can get in directly and when that happens it may be at a time where they cannot be on a computer to commit themselves.

Or if your regular doubles partner is on vacation and unable to commit themselves for the week when they return

There are legit reasons for this rule as long as its not being abused

I like it that players in our TT community are responsible enough and don't abuse this rule Like Jess said, there are reasons for it so I'm in favor of not changing it. Don't fix what's not broken.

Perhaps a simple amendment stating that one can commit one's doubles partner for singles would satisfy all parties?
Alternatively a limit on the number one player can commit?

Its only a matter of time before this happens. And there are a lot of new managers starting out who are unaware of the rule as it stands. It doesn't need to be changed, but I don't see the harm in a clarification of the current rule like Goldenoldie suggested

I'm a pretty new player to TT, won my first doubles match yesterday, I was just wondering:

If Roland Garros qualifying is during week 19, am I also allowed to play in a challenger that week??? I've been told that this is an "exception" to the one tournament a week rule, but I just want to make sure.

According to my calculations RG qualifying is week 20, not 19, but the answer is still the same

I will need an assistant manager for Madrid because I'm playing there. Just to receive my picks and be online when play starts. Any volunteers?

I can do it, except possibly next Thursday when I might need to leave early.
