2015 Rule Changes

1) Placement of alternates and lucky losers according to the ranking
The placement of alternates and lucky losers is no longer random (check the TT rules for more information).

2) Players with byes & Alternates/LL
Players with a bye in the first round who fail to send picks on the first day of the second round can now be replaced by lucky losers from qualifying or alternates (if no qualifying is played) who doesn't get placed in the first round.

3) WCs & Masters/64-draw tournaments
A WC is given to a winner of challengers played in pre-estabilished weeks prior to a 64-player tournament (all Masters 1000 events + Barcelona, Queens, Hamburg, Washington, Winston-Salem). The player who wins a challenger and scores more points in these weeks earns the WC.

4) PTS & correct set in the correct order
There's now a bonus of 2 points if the correct scoreline is predicted in the correct set.

5) Total number of SRs as a TB step
The total number of correct SRs is now a TB step (used if the Tournament CB is tied).

6) Maximum number of matches in the singles first round
There must be a minimum of 4 matches.

7) Off-season futures
Futures to be played after the end of the challengers calendar, with top 30 players allowed to play as LE and the following distribuction of points:

W - 24
F - 16
SF - 8
QF - 4
R16 - 1

How to send picks

1) Example of OOP:



2) Instructions:

a) Send your picks in the same order as they’re displayed in the OOP post.
b) SR matches: send the winner & the set ratio (the score in sets).
c) PTS matches: send the winner & the PTS (the score in games).
d) Do NOT send first names, seedings, nationalities etc. Last names only.
e) Watch out for spelling mistakes.
f) Send your picks until the deadline set by the manager (not necessarily the time when the matches start).
g) Send your picks to the correct person (not necessarily the manager who opened the thread or the person who posted the OOP).

3) Example:

BIBON 60 60
ROGER-VASSELIN 2-0
LOPEZ JAEN 2-1
KRATOCHVIL 2-0
Recipient of the PM: Blake Picks sent at: 3 AM CEST

· Picks sent in the correct order (first line = winner of Nadal vs Bibon; second line = winner of Falla vs Roger-Vasselin etc.).
· SR matches: score in sets (2-0 or 2-1; if best of 5 -> 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2).
· PTS matches: score in games (60 60, 36 76 61 etc.)
· Last names only: no nationalities, first names, seedings etc.
· No spelling mistakes: “-“ between ‘Roger’ & ‘Vasselin’, space between ‘Lopez’ & ‘Jaen’ etc.
· Picks sent before the deadline.
· Picks sent to the correct person (Ljubo posted the OOP, but picks should be sent to Blake).
