Futures are very recent to TT, and were only introduced to fill gaps in weeks without challengers. Now that we're using more futures in TT, we could consider playing these tournaments in December.

Once again, I can fully understand and accept those who want to have a break, but they should not force the ones who want to play. Having a future or two opened does not hurt anybody. If you want a break you dont commit.

As post-(current) season futures are being discussed, I just wondered about protocol. What has to happen for it to be approved? I'm not going to chime in on either side but was curious as to what would have to happen for such a rule change to be implemented. A majority vote by the board?

It has me wondering also. I would think that about everyone should be involved. Are any game managers available that want to manage and are there enough players who wants to play?

Well the subject is now one of the subjects up for discussion in the Changes thread - what happens next depends on if a change is voted for by players.

Playing a Future qualy is a coin in the air... Maybe I'd had more chances there than I have right now.

I think that is funny, but I would think it even funnier if I weren't in the same position as you I honestly feel it should be more up to the game managers, if they want to do it! Of course, Adey could probably do them all and never break a sweat! He totally amazes me

For clarification: A top-30 player will always be LE and they cannot be seeded.

A lower ranked player, say top-60, can still be seeded despite being LE.

Or is this wrong?

From rules thread :-

Could a Late Entry be a seeded player? What about a SE?

Yes to both questions.

* Top 30 singles players are not able to be seeded in the challengers they're allowed to play as late entries (qualifying or main draw).
