Question re Hobart

Groth is the only player through to QF so far and the other R2 matches all still to be played after 2 days of rain. Tomorrow looks like the same forecast with heavy rain. If they do not get to play tomorrow either, that would mean playing 2R and QF on Friday and SF and Final on Saturday right, or would they go over til Sunday? Either way, players at risk of being tired for Melbourne having to bunch up so many matches.

Re: Question re Hobart

If it got cancelled, the remaining points and prize money would be split equally between then 15 players left in draw?

Players would receive their ranking points earned through the last completed round only.

Re: Question re Hobart

It will be interesting to see who decides to stay. FYI, since molik has a wild card, none of the 15 left in singles have to play qualies.

Re: Question re Hobart

Tournament director speaks : http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2...ate=%28none%29

"Players risk a pretty hefty fine if they pull out of WTA tournaments"

"There's no real point running out of here when it's raining in Melbourne."

Re: Question re Hobart

Are there no indoor facilities in Hobart? I know Edgbaston sometimes use an indoor venue to catch up with a backlogue.

Re: Question re Hobart

1. Tournament Cancellation Without Play Occurring
If the singles or doubles event of a Tournament is cancelled due to poor
weather and there has been no play, 1st round prize money will be paid
out to the players.
2. Tournament Cancellation After Play Has Begun
If play has commenced and been terminated before the Tournament is
concluded, players will be paid loser’s prize money for the individual
round reached. Additionally, if the 1st round has been completed, all
players/teams will receive their ranking points earned through the last
completed round only, and the Tournament will count as a Tournament
played.
3. Tournament Cancellation Without Completion of Finals
If a Tournament is officially terminated, and the finals have not been
completed, the finalists will each receive finalist’s prize money and rank-
ing points. The difference between the winner and finalist prize money
will revert back to the Tournament.

Re: Question re Hobart

Weather forecast :
"It will ease a little during Thursday... and further rain on Friday, which will tend to ease. Into the weekend it should start to fine up."

The truth is that some players will probably tank during next matchs.
