ALT or LUCKY LOSER PLACEMENT BASICS

ALT = Player committing after FINAL DEADLINE and before start of PLAY (CHALLENGER main draw or ATP Q) , or players at end of entry list in full event.

LUCKY LOSER = Player losing in FQR , best losers are first to enter main draw and replace any missing picks.

After Final deadline for receiving picks , missing picks are replaced by ALTS/LL in CHALLENGER RD1 and QR1/RD1 ATP

2 MISSING PICKS SAME MATCH

- If there is a match with 2 missing picks, it takes placement priority , ALT1/LL1 and ALT2/LL2 will be placed in this spot
- If there is only 1 ALT available and you have a match with 2 missing pick , ALT1/LL1 is placed in this spot , then the top seed with an opponent receives a BYE, and opponent of this seed is moved to face the ALT/LL.
-If you have more then 2 ALTS/LL , ALT/LL 3 will play the lowest ranked player remaining without an opponent, and so on.
-If no ALT/LL are available with 2 missing picks in same match, best loser will advance to take place in next round

1 MISSING PICK per MATCH (MOST COMMON)

-List the matches with missing picks , and compare the ranking of the players that have sent (not those that are missing)
-Lowest on your entry list will face ALT/LL 1, next lowest ALT/LL 2, etc.
-any matches remaining with missing picks after ALT's are placed, receive a walkover to the next round.

DOUBLES

-works the same , 1 missing pick on a team is the same as 2 missing players picks on a team , they get replaced if an ALT/LL team both send picks
-only replaced on Day 1 of 2 in Round 1 , Day 2 no replacements


EXCEPTIONS

-if there are more ALT's then missing picks, the ALT's not getting to play are able to replace missing picks of players having RD1 BYES, as is such for RD48 in CHALLENGERS, if these ALT'S not placed send again for RD2, and a player that had a BYE does not send, the ALT would be placed into round 2 , with the same as round 1 rules, replacing the lowest ranked on the entry list that a seed with BYE is a missing pick against.

-it can get more complicated then this, once in a week 2 event we had 3 matches with 2 missing picks, that will take much more thought and close examining of rules if occurs again.
it's a rare case to have anything other then what is listed here.
