Sure thing, I'll sign you up for those. So just to make sure I understood you right, it's doubles for both Rome and RG?


P. S. To all: Fed Cup 2013 will probably be hosted by Sasja, so please don't sign up for that.

I'm sure you will, no problem:)


P. S. Now that WTA has also published the 2013 calendar I've noticed that starting dates on several tournaments were incorrect in my calendar, so I corrected that now. Brisbane starts on December 30th.

OK, I've signed you up and you can always cancel if something happens (just try to do it at least a week in advance, of course). Now we have just one and a half (AO doubles being the half) event left open in the first two months of the year (assuming Sasja does the Fed Cup this year).

Of course I don't mind, I'm thrilled to see new people willing to help out with the game; and of course you can count on help so if you have questions feel free to send me a private message whenever you want. I'll sign you up right now ;)

Great! I've signed you up but still left you with a choice of tournament in case you change your mind about which one to run. I'll delete the other two once you open the thread.

I'm pretty sure no one will object, so please open the thread as soon as you can, cause there isn't too much time left until the start of the event. And of course, thanks for helping out :)

Doesn't have a subforum here on TF though. I think they just want to pretend it's still going ahead. :lol:

If Barcelona goes ahead I'd prefer that to Katowice.

We play only one event per week and if you'd like to take that week you can decide which of the two events will we play (this choice by manager is only done with International series events when there's two of the same category played the same week).

Can also do Brussels ;)

Great - in Brussels we'll play only singles. The next doubles events are French Open and Wimbledon (and both are taken if I'm not mistaken). You can identify tournaments that host doubles in the calendar by looking which are written in Italics.

I'm assuming you both are talking about singles events (if not, please specify)?

As for Birmingham, no problem Blacky, I love that event too but you take it and I'll find something else :)

Are you sure about both, singles and doubles? I know it doesn't sound like too much work, but the singles draw is quite big and it's a 32 doubles draw as well... But if you think you'll be able to handle it, who am I to stop you :) And I don't think it'll be a problem if you don't post the OOP for one day, usually people step in whenever necessary.

URGENT!!!

Anyone wants to step in for TOC in Sofia this week? The tournament starts tomorrow, and longtin23 hasn't said a word about running it eventhough he/she reserved it months ago and is not responding to my PM's, just like for Istanbul doubles, for which I stepped in last week and took care of it. If no one can do Sofia I will do it, but I have Fed Cup finals to do this upcoming weekend so it might be a bit much towards the end of the week for me. Please let me know and proceed with opening up the thread immediately if you'd like to run Sofia!

Thank you :)

Great, thanks, it's not a big issue if you can't update the scores absolutely regularly, but please do your best as it's one of those events for which players have to qualify. Also please check to see which players have qualified and are therefore allowed to play and also allow another 9 (based on their Race to Sofia position) to play as reserves. Of course, just like in Istanbul, reserves can only earn points if enough of the qualifiers don't show up (1 for the 1st reserve, 2 for 2nd etc.).

If you have questions feel free to PM me :)
