Well, you can't actually pull out, you can only not send picks, which will result in your team not defending old or earning new points.

Of course, if circumstances change you are both welcome to play anyway

Well can it at least not count for the average points this week?

I'm affraid not, cause it doesn't make sense. Imagine if you guys were in the lead on a roll-over ranking - you simply pull out until someone overtakes you and maintain #1 without even playing. In theory that could work, and that's why you can't skip a weekend in FC. If a team doesn't play for one weekend, the team's points from a year ago are not defended and are therefore taken down.

I see that, but I think come on lena will play, so all I'm asking is for him to be the entire team and not have his score divided by 3. That isn't fixing I hope?

Oh, I didn't understand you correctly, sorry about that. Don't worry, as...the total number of points earned by a team on a given day is divided by the number of players that played for the team that day. It's all in the rules, but maybe not written clear enough. I'll look into it.

Technically you should sign-up in a new thread (cause this is a thread for the 1st FC weekend that we played in February) which will be open in a day or two. In order to join the team other members of that team have to accept you, so if they don't mind you can join their team.

No...what rules? About the points? I've always calculated that way. If only 2/3 team members play on a given day I would divide their points with 2. If, on the next day, all three show up I'll divide their points by 3. Unless you are talking about something else...?

BTW, I'm considering suggesting another rule - that a player who has missed three consecutive FC weekends be disqualified from the team. Reason for that - people stop coming to the forum and we can't rely on their "yes" so that someone new could join the team.

Re: Tipping 182: Fed Cup 2012, R1, congrats Estonia and Netherlands!

The rule that everyone has to agree if a new player wants to join the team. Even if he didn't commit.

That rule makes no sense.

TT Singles: #108 CH: #2 Finals: Luxembourg '12, Miami '13, Carlsbad '13, YEC '13 SF: Dallas '12, US Open '12, Indian Wells '13, Cincinnati '13, New Haven '13, Tokyo '13
TT Doubles: #10 CH: #10 Titles: Dallas '12, Brussels '13, Cincinnati '13, US Open '14, New Haven '15, Hong Kong '15, Moscow '15 Finals: Seoul '12, Brisbane '13, Monterrey '15, Stuttgart '15, YEC '15 (GS) SF: Wimbledon '12, US Open '12 RR: YEC '13
