Important: Proposed Idea for withdrawals for LA

Guys, with the End of Year Championships this week, I feel it's important that we have some players on reserve, in case any of the top 16 in the race do not make any picks.

I sent a message to sandg who agreed with me. crazillo and Hantuchov have also agreed with me. I suggest we have a system like this:

- The players ranked 17-20 in the race are allowed to make picks, BUT only add them to the League Table after the championships end, in case somebody in the top 16 doesnt pick.

For example, if one person hasn't picked by the end of the tournament, u could then add the 17th ranked player to the league table. And as I said, a reserve player would only be added in the circumstance that somebody in the top 16 hasn't made a pick by the end of the tournament.

Please give me some feedback guys whether you agree, thanks

Yes, I think it's okay
There must be enough matches for the spectators

WCs wouldn't work, it's based on the next people in line who would have qualified

Guys, the top 16 qualifiers have now been confirmed:

001.(001).Hantuchov........BRA.. 1573. _13. _13. .31
002.(002).WTA Handicapper..GBR.. 1430. _15. _14. .35
003.(003).sandg............INA.. 1316. _27. _22. .35
004.(004).mypapa_je........INA.. 1262. _15. _12. .33
005.(005).bbypk............ESP.. 1233. _11. _10. .34
006.(006).K&J fan..........BEL.. 1218. _16. _12. .35
007.(007).ghosts...........BUL.. 1212. _22. _19. .36
008.(008).Je_ne_sais_quoi..SIN.. 1156. _11. _10. .36
009.(009).kimclijsters4everBEL.. 1138. __6. __4. .28
010.(010).kafelek..........POL.. 1132. __0. __0. .21
011.(011).spencercarlos....VEN.. 1125. __8. __6. .32
012.(012).bionic71.........AUS.. 1120. _26. _22. .36
013.(013).Geoffry..........BEL.. 1101. __7. __6. .31
014.(014).SpikeyAidanm.....AUS.. 1092. _18. _17. .36
015.(015).Pintaled.........AUS.. 1084. _20. _16. .35
016.(018).andrew_uk........GBR.. 1063. _12. _10. .35

So in effect, the reserve players would be:

017.(016).camoya...........ISR.. 1056. _11. _10. .32
018.(017).saab95...........RUS.. 1051. _14. _12. .33
019.(020).crazillo.........GER.. 1007. __4. __3. .27
020.(019).jrm..............SLO.. _995. _17. _15. .35

If these 4 reserve players make PAWs as usual, and then if any1 in top 16 forgets to pick, they weill automatically replace them in order, ie camoya then saab95 and so on. A reserve player will only be used if any of the top 16 fail to make a pick. They will also only be added if needed when the tournament has ended.

sounds fine to me

IF Maria Sharapova = Masha

THEN...
Lindsay Davenport = Linda
Anastasia Myskina = Amy
Conchita Martinez = Coma
Shahar Peer = Shape
Alicia Molik = Almo
Sofia Arvidsson = Soar
Maria Vento Kabchi = Maven
Magdalena Maleeva = Mama
Rennae Stubbs = Rest
Anne Keothavong = Anke
Tamarine Tanasugarn = Tata

Sounds like a good idea. It would be like a player is injured and an alternate plays.

Can you tell why? I mean, suppose at the end of the tournament a few didn't make a pick - it would be extremely unfair on the next players who could have played instead.
