Hi PAWers all over the World :wavey:

Yes, it's that time of year again - Fed Cup :)

This thread is for you to committ and confirm your teams :dance:

Please find the list of teams and committed players in post #2 - this post will be updated regularly so please check back for updates :bounce:

Please note: Each country must have a minimum of 2 players in order to enter. Your team may have up to 5 players, however this year we have introduced a reserve system so you can add a few reserve players if you wish.

Your reserve players must also pick. Your reserve players are used when one of your nominated team members fails to make a single pick by the end of the round 1 matches.

The deadline for submitting your confirmed team and captain is 19th April, 11pm British Time :wavey:

not "change or cancel" but only "add" SUPP Picks to his/her team member.

I thaught the team member have the right to choose their SUPP PAWs but sometime they pick less than quota due to many players replacement in day-2. This is the Captain duty to complete their team member's picks.

sandg
Apr 21st, 2005, 01:23 AM
And remember :

Due to the games use Supplementary picks, no "change/cancel" the picks after first match play, the players just can "add" the main PAW(s) or Supplementary PAW(s).

andrew_uk
Apr 21st, 2005, 09:50 AM
sandg - The captain can add on SUPPs to their team members' picks - that's why I said they can make their SUPP picks, also if a team member has not made any SUPPs at all, then the captain is allowed to make them. The captain is also allowed to change a team members' SUPPs, or change the order they were numbered.

Germany will role through this round I am sure. :)

andrew_uk
Apr 21st, 2005, 07:05 PM
Just to make this clear:

Everybody can make, change or cancel SUPP picks, the captain has authority to make SUPPs for team members who have not posted any, or to add SUPPs, they can also cancel and change SUPPs made by other team members. The captain's decision is final. :) :wavey:

sandg
Apr 21st, 2005, 08:14 PM
I said the players can't change/cancel their PAW(s) and SUPP PAW(s) after first match played, its mean the players before 1st match played (on Saturday) they allowed change/cancel their PAW(s) and SUPP PAW(s). Addition : I agree the captains allowed to change a team members' SUPPs, or change the order number also before first match played.

andrew_uk said that Everybody can make, change or cancel SUPP picks, the captain's authority without say time limit, it will make some problems.

1. We can change big points SUPP PAW to be high order so have big chance to be counted in overall points.

2. We can change the main PAW to be invalid, so the big points SUPP PAWs can replace the main PAW to be counted in overall points.

kfh_9118
Apr 22nd, 2005, 12:31 PM
I agree with sandg, as I said last time in Fed Cup PAW, the captain shouldn't have the right to change the order of the other members' PAW order (main one), or delete the PAWs. Adding SUPP PAW is ok, but not deleting or change the order.

Otherwise the result will basically be the outcome of the captain's performance not the entire team. I wouldn't be happy if my captain changed my PAWs without my concern, although it might turn to be the right decision. Everyone has different strategies, and the result should be based on the team performance, not the captain's.

Again this is just my opinion, but I do hope you will consider it ;)

andrew_uk
Apr 22nd, 2005, 11:16 PM
:lol:

This is how it will work:

Everybody can make SUPPs if they want to - if the captain wants to change or add on more SUPPs, or complete, or even make all the SUPPs for another team member if they haven't made any then they can.

A captain is not allowed to make, change or cancel any main PAWs made by another team member

As with any match, a PAW or SUPP will be invalid if it is late or it wasn't played, so it is up to everyone to ensure they make their picks in time :) :wavey:
