I think that if we are able to play FITD in all tournaments only the best per week should count:wavey:

Also think FITD shouldn`t allow players to play more than one tournament a week.

There's still small number of players which play FITD, so i think it still should be allowed to play more than one tourney per week and later change it.

Hopefully there will be enough players to get 2 tournaments a week.

And are we going to limit number of players for each tourney or is it going to stay as it is now? Because, when player will be able to play only 1 tourney, and if number of players per tourney is not limited, than, let's say in this week, almost everybody would go to play Dubai.

Nothing personal against Ruisantos here but I just want to clarify an incident in Rotterdam last week where people were being allowed to replace their Bjorkman pick with De Voest despite the match not containing a seeded player.

The rules at the start of the thread of each game says that only seeded players can be replaced. I just want to make sure that that will be the way it remains? And if so that everyone knows of that rule so it doesn't get so confusing in the future :)

And I want to discuss that...I think that rule has to change...Or we can change any player or we can't change nothing...Seeded players are not less than the other players...

I have nothing against the rule being changed either, just want it clarified :)... also don't want to take over the rules of BlakeRoddick126's game either so I guess it's something that needs some discussion

I think that if any player withdraws, the participants must be allowed to change all picks envolving this player. But it has to be done before the match with the lucky loser starts.

Another point is the ranking. I think we can do the same as PAW. Giving points to each final position, and counting only the best result in the week. If we keep doing this way, the number will have 1 million points in a year!

dont worry about my rules everyone, feel free to offer up suggestions so here are some issues that we should cover this week:-

1) Amount of Tournaments Played--> I think its best if we keep it to everyone can play as many tournaments a week, because if we just leave it open to everyone then people will most likely go for the strongest event. And I dont think it would be a problem if everyone who played would play all three events right?

2) I just want to mention, that next year (after the Australian Open cuz thats when we started) there will be DEFENDING POINTS. You will have to defend the amount of points you received last year on your ranking, but we will most likely discuss that next year, but to give u a brief example:

Dubai--> 2006 Result....2300---> 2007 Result.....1999
Since I didnt defend my points I will LOSE points (similar to ATP tour, and I am getting these rules from theoriginal game in the WTA forum website)..so you would get 2300-1999= 301 ....so in the ranking you would LOSE 301 points rather than gain.

But we will discuss sometime next year

3) I know there are some concerning issues about withdrawal of players. I am willing to change that rule, however, you must change the draw before the match has started. So I grant this rule to change.

4) The MASTERS series at the end of the year. I need everyone's opinion on this. In the WTA forum, the top 8 players(in the race) will make it to the year ending championships. For the ATP FITD, would you like to make it top 8, 16, 32...or just everyone play the end of the year.

Thanks for your suggestions everyone!

Remember that FITD is always willing for change so just speak out and support your suggestions!

I would like to suggest something about the points of each tournament...
For the real players tournaments like Dubai gives more points than tournaments like Buenos Aires because better players play Dubai and prices are higher... but for FITD I think that we should earn the same points for every ATP tournament, the same points for every MS and the same points for every GS

We also must take care that, if we are going to defend the points the next year, we must be able to defend the same tournament we are playing this year.
I'll give a example and it will be better to understand:
I played Dubai, Acapulco and Las Vegas this year and make 300pts in each one.
Next year, we (may) only choose one tournament per week and i choose Las Vegas 2008 and I make 300pts. I defended my 300pts but I lost 600pts because I was unable to play in Acapulco and Dubai.
I think it would be better to, starting from some week, we only choose one tournament ALREADY DURING THIS YEAR. and then, next year in the weeks that we played three tournaments, all players must be able to play all the three tournaments.

I agree totally. The points should be given by the position you make, not by the number of points. Or by a rate of the points will make like:
points made in tournaments played / tournaments played
It would make things more fair.

Also, it would be good to the ranking be done with the 18 best results + ALL MS + ALL GS + TMC (if played by the person)

with or without the "rate thing" I said in the last person..
I can do the rankings, if you guys want to do

But if we alter that thing...And put only one tournament that doesn't affect...You will play one tournament but the rest of us play too...
And ther new players will only play one tournament...

I think the rankings should be exactly the same as the ATP and should be rewarded for doing well in the big events.
