Current rule: All tournaments are played.

Motivation to change the rule: Due to lack of managers during the past season, sometimes it was difficult to have good managing. By reducing the number of tournaments, we decrease the workload on managers and we make FITD more competitive. The weeks with 3 tournaments will be reduced to 2 tournaments and the weeks with 2 tournaments will be reduced to 1. A potential tentative schedule below reduces the number of tournaments played by 21 for next season: 21 out of 39 ATP250, 10 out of 13 ATP500, all ATP1000, all GS and WTF will be played.

Code:
Week 1: (250)Doha and (250)Brisbane or Chennai
Week 2: (250)Sydney
Week 3: (GS)Australian Open
Week 4: (250)Montpellier and (250)Sofia or Quito
Week 5: (500)Rotterdam and (250)Memphis or Buenos Aires
Week 6: (500)Rio and (250)Marseille or Delray Beach
Week 7: (500) Dubai and Acapulco
Week 8: (1000) Indian Wells
Week 9: (1000) Miami
Week 10: (250) Houston or Marrakech
Week 11: (1000) Monte Carlo
Week 12: (500) Barcelona
Week 13: (250) Estoril and Munich or Istanbul
Week 14: (1000) Madrid
Week 15: (1000) Rome
Week 16: (250) Nice
Week 17: (GS) Roland Garros
Week 18: (250) Stuttgart
Week 19: (500) Queens or Halle
Week 20: (250) Eastbourne
Week 21: (GS) Wimbledon
Week 22: (250) Bastad and Umag or Newport
Week 23: (500) Hamburg and (250) Gstaad or Atlanta
Week 24: (500) Washington and (250) Los Cabos or Kitzbuhel
Week 25: (1000) Montreal
Week 26: (1000) Cincinati
Week 27: (250) Winston-Salem
Week 28: (GS) USO
Week 29: (250) St Petersburg or Taiwan
Week 30: (250) Chengdu or Shenzhen
Week 31: (500) Beijing or Tokyo
Week 32: (1000) Shanghai
Week 32: (250) Stockholm and Antwerp or Moscow
Week 33: (500) Basel or Vienna
Week 34: (1000) Paris
Week 35: (WTF) London
OPTIONS:

1. Keep rule the same. All tournaments will be played as before.

2. Reduce the number of tournaments (if this will be voted, we can discuss after about the FITD 2017 tournaments calendar ).

If it's easier to manage then I'd happily play less tournaments.

If there's only two events during the week then I'd like to have both of them, tbh. Three is too much though.

It is public, it's just that people aren't voting. What are we supposed to do, mention everyone who's played?

She means why we can't see who voted what option. I preferred to make it this way, so nobody can't accuse anyone for their choice. Everyone is free to explain their choice in the thread if they would like to.
