MrExcel, ThePhenom and Sergyu18 all sent late picks.
Their picks do not count, but because their respective opponents sent no picks they each win by default.

I must say that these have been 2 of the most disappointing rounds of qualifying I have seen since I started managing. Only rwo meaningful matches were actually played, the rest being walkovers, and I have real sympathy for those who played and lost.

I hope there will be much more enthusiasm for the Main Draw. Today's final match is on court at the moment, and as soon as it is finished I will give the final QR results and the lucky losers order, and update the Main Draw.

For me as a fellow manager I think there's nothing more disappointing and irritating than going to the trouble of producing qualifying draws, checking out and posting an OOP and being ready at the deadline to kick a tournament off, only to find hardly anybody is bothering to send in their picks after committing to the tournament.

I'm ready to play tomorrow anyway

We're getting seriously told today!

Perhaps serial offenders throughout the year should be punished in some way, rather than tarring everyone with the same brush?

I'm sure as managers you have ways of getting things put forward, if this hasn't been done already...

From my point of view, the main problem resides in the fact that challenger TT threads are buried deep within the games section of the forum.

The other TT threads are much more easily reachable. There must be a way to do this with challengers.

My friend, this was not particularly aimed at you. At least you sent some picks, even though they were late both days.

The possibility of "punishment" has indeed been considered, but it would be very difficult to police, and there are always players with genuine reasons for not sending (real life problems, illness, computer breakdown etc)
It would be almost impossible to distinguish between those players and the ones who commit and then just can't be bothered.

That's a very valid point, and one which I have raised myself (and I am sure others have as well before me)

Apparently it is an MTF problem rather than a TT problem. As I understand it, they are not willing to have a sub-forum for each challenger, and therefore if TT threads were put into the challengers section they would be mixed in with all the other threads relating to challengers, and it would probably be even more difficult to find the right place than it is already.

My point would be that if a player is able to find the right thread to commit in, he should remember that he has done so, and send his picks.

Of course, but maybe the challenger threads could be moved to a section not so far deep within the games section.
