Re: "Ask the board" thread!

When a singles draw has been published as below, should the manager be allowed to re-position the four qualifiers randomly or should they stick to the qualifying positions as specified in the original draw?

00:00 | (4) Igorche (SRB) vs Q1
00:00 | Drake1980 (CAN) vs Elwin (NED)
00:00 | (SE) rewerner (SUI) vs Hayato (JPN)
00:00 | Aniusia (POL) vs (8) eDonkey (BUL)

00:00 | (5) Extremaduratenis (ESP) vs Q2
00:00 | igralec33 (SLO) vs Ekin (CHN)
00:00 | Pisces0304 (CHN) vs Sexysova (CZE)

You can just commit, but your country might have a many (better ranked) players and you will not make the team. For some other nation, even unranked players can play. Just like in the real life.

It seems to me, that he decided that Q1 is the qualifier with the best score and Q4 with the lowest score.

Highly unusual.

This is not the case. Andelko has been given the Q1 position and had the lowest score. The order of the 4 qualifiers appears to have been randomised and then placed into the Q1 to Q4 positions. I agree it is highly unusual and I'm pretty pissed off about it - my doubles partner may get a virtual walkover tomorrow because he needs the points for the YEC.

Thanks. Could you instruct the manager to change the draw for when he is back online.

Re: "Ask the board" thread!

I don't understand the big issue with randomizing the places of the Qualifiers, it's how it's done. He probably just marked them so he is sure he has 4 qualifiers.

Good luck Kaia and Anett in 2014.
Also Wozniacki, Jankovic, Ivanovic, Stosur, Gajdosova and K-Kookie!!

The four Qualifying positions were randomised in the Main Draw (Q3,Q1,Q2,Q4) which is totally normal. Why is there a need to randomise the Qualifying positions again?

Re: "Ask the board" thread!

Yeah I made two randomisations (Q1-Q4 positions and Q1-Q4 orders)...
I don't know why I wrote Q1-Q4 in the first place hence I put the order this way...

fix it now.

Re: "Ask the board" thread!

Questions about the Challenger tour finals Nantes.

How are the teams organised for the doubles finals. 16 players may not necessarily mean 8 regular doubles team. Do we just sort out teams when the 16 are decided?

Secondly if I qualify for doubles not singles can I play singles at another event?

R.I.P Bally

Thankyou for years of service to British tennis

Any chance I can take protected ranking until AO 2013?
Or it must be 6 months?
