Re: TT changes - the hot topics (state your opinions in 1 post)
2. Countback (CB) before PTS as part of the TB systemEvery player would have 2 WC's (that can be used in any tournament) + 1 WC (that can be used in a challenger) in a TT season. The WC's for tournaments would be handed on the basis of players current ranking, the highest ranked players asking to use a WC would be granted one. The managers wouldn't have any say on who gets the WC's. Nationality wouldn't have any effect on who gets the WC's. Tournaments would have the same number of wild cards to give as the ATP ones have (3 in 32-draw, 4 in 64-draw, 8 in 128-draw, 4 in challengers).
Not keen on matches being decided on countback. I thought the aim of tennis tipping was to pit two tippers against each other in that match, and the winner of that match goes through to the next round. If this is the case, then the match should never be decided on anything other than how the two people performed in that match. Example... I lost my 4th round match at the US Open on countback, with Murilo having 1 or 2 more correct picks in the previous match. However, in our previous matches we had gone for different tactics on the final day, with him picking who he thought the winners would be, and me taking risks to try and defend a lead by blocking off any potential risks that my opponent could take (didn't work, as there were 7 differences on the last day, but that is beside the point). Should I have been penalised in the next round for taking a different strategy in the previous round, when the aim of the game is to pick more winners than your opponent in that round, rather than who picks the most winners in the tournament?
