Is it possible to be a manager?

I read Marco-Alize is not a fair manager, don't know if it's true but I really love this game so I would like to manage it

is it possible? I'm really fair and I will put a lot of work into the game

can you say your opinion about me as a manager?

Re: Is it possible to be a manager?

I don't mind, but people don't really care if it's fair I guess. They had a chance to change it in a poll and only a few voted for a change. I also have to say that Marco cheats only sometimes - usually when he's not having a good week

As you know, I have opened a poll on this issue. People didn't want to change.
Marco started managing last year, and is doing a pretty good job.
If you would like to manage a few tourneys, I suggest you should be in contact with Marco and propose your help.

Bye the way congrats for winning AO. Well done.

Re: Is it possible to be a manager?

Maybe we could have two members managing the same tournament? If they have different results they can do a recount.

Ivanovic - Jankovic - Bartoli - Cirstea

#9 Highest #1 Titles: 2009: Budapest, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, 2010: Sydney, Moscow

TT Singles: #114 Highest #106
TT Doubles: #62 Highest #62 Titles: 2009 ITF Saint-Gaudens(w Marco tennis), 2010 Barcelona (w WhoAmI)

Re: Is it possible to be a manager?

i have one idea: maybe we should have more than one tournament per week and that everyone can't play every tournament. so, there would be entry list and maybe 16 players maximum could play one tournament(to give canche others there maybe should be qualies). and there would be different managers and rank would have a sence. what do you think about this idea?

Re: Is it possible to be a manager?

Re: Is it possible to be a manager?

I like your idea about qualifying etc.. there should be limit for players.. like 32 for each tournament and if there're more than 32 players.. 28 highest ranked would play directly in MD and there would be qualifying.. people would tip qualy matches and four best would reach MD

Re: Is it possible to be a manager?

I mean we could do real main draws tournament.. like in GS there will be 128 players maximum, for other tours like real draws (64, 32) what about trying to do countries for Fed Cup or how is Fed Cup usually played in here?

Re: Is it possible to be a manager?

Not enough players to do something like that in my opinion, we only had 34 players for Australian Open and 23 for Brisbane. There is no reason to limit the amount of players, Marco and ma re didn't seem to have any problems handling it.

Re: Is it possible to be a manager?

that's why i say 12 or 16 players would be limit
i mean, i like so many players on every tournament, but where is there sence of rankings if everyone can play everwhere
about draw idea(i think that tipping would lose sence if there would be draw system becasue i think that tipping is some kind of tennis tipping but to be different there is ranking system)
also, i don't like that there are same bounus points for challengers and tier I tournaments(i think there should be different bounus points)
also, it would be better if there would be ranking and race(i don't see sence of playing tipping last year if that's won't be counted)
and doubles also should be played, it's more fun if there are doubles

p.s. why we didn't have 2008. awards(like in every other game)?
i think it's not too late for this

Re: Is it possible to be a manager?

Even so I called it an end with tipping, I really have to say that Marco-Alize did a good job even though the update of the race always wasn't that quick and the real ranking wasn't updated at all. All in all, I really cannot complain about his management style. Good luck to all of you and I really like the idea concerning the awards.

My 3 favorite players are: Patty Schnyder ~ Roger Federer ~ Martina Hingis

Other players: Belinda Bencic ~ Kim Clijsters ~ Timea Bacsinszky ~ Elena Dementieva ~ Stefanie Voegele ~ Anna Kournikova ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Vera Zvonareva ~ Daniela Hantuchova ~ Elena Bovina ~ Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova ~ Monica Seles ~ Jennifer Capriati ~ Serena and Venus Williams ~ Klara Koukalova

Re: Is it possible to be a manager?

no draws, that's for sure, maybe it's really not worthy to limit players if there were only 30 for AO, that's really just a few I agree about awards and ranking = entry and race different rankings

Re: Is it possible to be a manager?

i mean, it's not impossible if there is maximum of 12 or 16 players entry
and there should be doubles for sure
