Hi again.

One question (I didn't find the answer in the rules) : If I play a challenger in TT , can I play DTT in Paris ? [my instinct tells me No but I wasn't sure] . Thanks

TT and DTT are two separate games. You can play both.

What is the reason to have a 5-6 winter break? I cannot imagine that at least one future could not be filled.

To be honest I don't know why is this break, it was like this from first season, also I didn't see any point to play futures in December

What is the difference between a June and a December future?

(Ok I understand you dont see any point playing futures, but what about other players? I mean WTF with far less players can fill at least 2 challengers in december)

It's a very very good question.
We don't want 5-6 weeks break from TT!!!

Our goal is always to make TT as "real" as possible vis-a-vis the ATP. If we put a few futures for these weeks, lower ranked players would get shut out unless we had very large qualy draws, so the managers would be almost managing an ATP 1000 with tournaments with few updates, late OOP's etc...

Plus its awards season in December

I know it's a bit late, but perhaps this is something that could be put to the vote in the close season, along with the rule change proposals?

Okay, you are right. I didn't think about that.

Some of us need the chance to gain points

But seriously TF have events all the year round - even Xmas week, it's something worth looking into.

...or we could just make another structure of points for Futures -I think Marto mentioned this in a thread- where 60 points will be awarded for winner. That would be very very unattractive for Top 40 guys, Top 80 maybe...and might mean a chance for lower ranked players including me. Normal draws 32-16 for singles and 16-8 for doubles.
Still, a few weeks of rest (alright maybe just 3 or 4) wouldn't be bad for us and managers.
