Rule Change Proposals for 2018 Season

Hello all!


If you have any ideas about a rule or several rules in TT that you want changed, then just post them in here and we will look at them, together, at the end of the season.
There will be polls about several decisions for sure, some things which were discussed a few times over the last years won't be discussed again this year.

Nothing will be done before the end of the season (unless there is a truly exceptional circumstance), this thread is more a place to write down an idea you have that you might forget about later.

Feel free to make suggestions and feel free to give us a feedback in the thread as well about the ideas coming up here, it will make it easier for the board to see if ideas/suggestions are popular or not or if a poll makes sense or if it is already clear that a rule change will happen or not!

But please behave, no off topic talk, fights etc., stay on topic, dicuss rules only and exchange opinions, no drama needed here!


I'll update post #2 every once in a while with a summary about discussed topics/options

TT Titles
Singles: ITF: Astana'14, Istanbul'17
Doubles: WTA: Rome'14, Strasbourg'14, Moscow'14, Bogotá'15 (w/Freak3yman84), Guangzhou'17 (w/come on lena). ITF: Trnava'13, Saint Malo'13, Vallduxo'13, Poitiers'13, Zawada'13, Vero Beach'14, Ankara'15, Chiasso'17, Cagnes-Sur-Mer'17 (w/Freak3yman84), Lexington'13 (w/charmedRic)

I am going to tell you right now that is not how it is going to work. People will accuse of favoritism or will complain that their country doesn't have a tournament to receive a WC

Re: Rule Change Proposals for 2018 Season

those who don't send picks in 2nd, 3rd ... round should only get 50% of the points

Re: Rule Change Proposals for 2018 Season

getting rid of people being able to commit to multiple tournaments.

allow the email again if the websites down and you can screen grab it (or take a picture)



@DropShotAce WCs for people from host countries/ countries near by/ defending champions could only be made possible if people switched their countries which...tbh would make for a more fun Fed cup to have more countries. I'd be willing to work something out though to make it less about favorites?

Re: Rule Change Proposals for 2018 Season

1. Being able to send picks to email, but those picks would count only the manager has been alerted (personally or through someone else).
^ Not sure about how to formulate this one, but it should definitely be more liberal than being strictly prohibited as it is now.

2. Miscorrectly sent picks to the wrong person (not the manager) give you a warning, but accepted if you prove that you were being punctual (sending them on time). Second/Third warning within the season means you are being disqualified.

Pavlyuchenkova.Niculescu.Krunic.Radwanska.Date-Krumm.Kvitova.Vinci.Bacsinszky.

Muguruza.Vesnina.Falconi.Paszek.Shvedova. Konta.Van Uytvanck.Voegele

Oh hell to the NO!
I like our system, it's MTFs trash system that I don't like that I have to wait until 5PM each Sunday to see if I will even have a remote chance to play an ATP. I would prefer that I am able to commit to an ATP and a CH and see where I am best fitted.

but I have an idea for this as well

Re: Rule Change Proposals for 2018 Season

Honestly the double commitment rule is working great. I don't know why some people are still against it.
Before that it was a hot mess. And no, choosing a random tournament with the hope you'll fit in the MD or QD and pray people go anywhere else is not better alternative than having 24 hours to decide where to play with actual closed lists

Re: Rule Change Proposals for 2018 Season

OTOH the rule about sending both managers, not forward picks, not understandable person, etc should be reconsidered cause imho is not working and is too strict. People used to complain with the previous rule but not as much as with the current one
