You have to act the showman and do more than just posting diffs - then you get responses.

You are good at that! Unfortunately my time is enough to manage a tournament, not to play a show!

Agreed, I felt like I was talking to myself. Most people just commit and send, and that's it.

As a manager you are happy if all runs smoothly with diffs, the order of play and draws. Certainly with ITF's it's regularly difficult to get that all done. I remember doing special tournament recaps way back in 2009 or so, it takes way too much time to do that right now.

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers Thread 2013 | Managers for Rome + ITFx2 needed!

For sure considering doing some things for the tournament, but actually time necessary for running is too much!

But it is nice to see the effect of posting here, some people comment in the threads now, saying that managers are doing a great job!

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers Thread 2013 | Managers for Rome + ITFx2 needed!

I dont expect many comments or whatever but sometimes it is a bit frustrating when not even winners or finalists are able to post sth nice. Some other players do post in TT threads often but usually never post sth like "thanks" or "great job", they just have to comment everything and disappear as soon as they lost

Anyway, I am happy that some players still post a nice "thanks" in their PMs or rep you here and there....

As a manager you make sure that it does run smoothly.

I missed garyyoung in my singles entrylist. But now I already made the qualifying draw. Should I change it to let him into the draw? He would be in MD.

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers Thread 2013 | Managers for Rome + ITFx2 needed!

He should be first ALt/LL.

"Missing Someone's Commitment: In the case that you miss someone's commitment while managing a tournament he/she will be topping the Alt or LL lists."

I would give him first LL position to MD.

IMO a published draw should never be corrected.

I am bad and that's good.
I will never be good and that's not bad.
I will always be me.

No, as valac said, u should never change draws unless u realize a mistake within a few minutes before u post OOP etc. but for sure not in this case.
garyyoung will be first ALT for MD now.

Re: Tennis Tipping Managers Thread 2013 | Managers for Rome + ITFx2 needed!

I need some help from Monday evening to Tuesday evening with managing Oeiras. I am in Amsterdam from Monday afternoon till Tuesday evening, with only my phone for internet. So, I need someone to post all final information on Monday and manage the tournament on Tuesday. My apoligies for the inconvenience, but I hope someone can help!
