Default 2013 PAW Managers Thread - all tournaments covered :)

Welcome to PAW Managers Thread 2013

If no manager takes a tournament until 1 day before the main draw is released, the tournament is cancelled, the players commited to this tournament are moved to the other(s) of the week (if there's any) and the circuit moves on.

PAW scoring points calculation
Code:
Formula:

PLAYER'S A ranking pts: A
PLAYER'S B ranking pts: B

Player's A PAW scoring pts: = SQRT (100*B / A) or 10*SQRT(B)/SQRT(A)
Player's B PAW scoring pts: = SQRT (100*A / B) or 10*SQRT(A)/SQRT(B)
(SQRT=square root)

EXAMPLE:

Madrid 2007 Final:

FEDERER, Roger vs NALBANDIAN, David

FEDERER, Roger rank pts: 7355
NALBANDIAN, David rank pts: 1195

FEDERER, Roger PAW Scoring pts = SQRT (100*1195/7355) = 4.03 = 4
NALBANDIAN, David PAW Scoring pts = SQRT (100*7355/1195) = 24.81 = 25

FEDERER, Roger vs NALBANDIAN, David ..........(4-25)

Note:

1. The ranking list to be used for PAW scoring points is the ranking at the time of the draw,
   normally it's the previous week's ranking (but in Indian Wells and Miami case 
   the draw comes out AFTER the new ranking is released)

2. Round off all scoring pts to the nearest integer, eg. 10.49 = 10 but 10.50 = 11.

3. In case of unranked player or a player who has less than 40 ranking pts, 
   he is allocated 40 pts for the calculation of PAW scoring points.

For beginning manager

Code:
Basically, the manager has 2 main tasks:

1. Publishing the matches and scoring points. It's important that the scoring points are
 published as soon as possible, because the players take them in consideration when
 selecting their picks for the next day of play.
2. Calculating the scores for each player and publishing the league standings. This is
 usually done after each day of play (or after each round in 2-weeks tournaments). Although
 the timing of publishing the standings is not as important as the scoring points, it would
 be good do do it as soon as possible. Players like to know where they rank, especially in
 the latter stages (after the QF and SF) when players take the standing and the picks of
 other players in consideration.

Generally, the time required for the standings depend on the # of matches played, so the
 work load at the start of the week is the hardest and it gets lighter as the tournament
 progresses.

More matches and more players yield more work for the manager... that's why we suggest that
 people who aren't sure they have the time to do it to take smaller tournaments for a start. 

Of course, to be able to function as manager you must have access to the internet on every
 day of the tournament (from the time the main draw is done until the final). 
You should be aware what's going on in the tournament and be ready to make adjustments when
 necessary (for example: occasionally the draw is changed due to withdrawal so the matches
 and scoring points have to be changed).

Another important task is to check the validity of picks, in particular look after "late
 picks", i.e. picks that were posted after the match start, or may have started, and
 therefore should be marked as an "invalid pick" and not be counted. Note - Start times of
 all matches can be found on the xscores.com website (tennis section).

A manager should also know the fine details of the game rules, so it is suggested to read
 thoroughly post #1 in the "Official PAW Rules and FAQ's thread" (link to which should
 appear on the first message of the PAW tournament thread).

All managers, please don't forget about the name format in ranking table which I've mentioned here
Name has exactly 23 symbols (letters)
,
thank you

Default Re: 2013 PAW Managers Thread - managers needed for Feb tournaments

i thought i ask here since it's the most traffic place for managers - with new, dreadful ATP scoreboard, can i have a permission to close the match for picking once the names appear on the scoreboard (i used to close matches once the ball appeared but now it's so hard to tell)?

Default Re: 2013 PAW Managers Thread - managers needed for Feb tournaments

ATP has a new SB? I have not seen it and don't know what the problem might be but you certainly don't need permission. The rules are clear


"7. Is it correct that I have to post my PAW’s before that match has started, would my PAW still be valid if I posted my PAW during the first few games?

> In the circumstance of a tournament which provides live scores. Your PAW must be posted no later than five minutes within the last five minutes of the previous match on that court. If the match is the first on that court, you must post your PAW no later that the five minute barrier five minutes before the match time, for your pick to be valid.

Picks posted after the Closing Time are accepted only in exceptional circumstances.
(e.g. in the case of rain delays, or if I happen to have watched the match live and noted the start time)".

So yeah, matches could be closed far earlier than the names appearing on the SB.
