Okay, so the rules are exactly the same as the singles game, where you align 1-39 among three sets, but instead of just those points, you and your doubles partner combine your singles points together!

Find a partner!

Doubles Teams:

Serena Williams (USA)/Aravane Rezai (FRA)
Patty Schnyder (SUI)/Ana Ivanovic (SRB)
Agnieszka Radwanska (POL)/Caroline Wozniacki (DEN)
Anna Chakvetadze/Daniela Hantuchova (SVK)
Maria Sharapova (RUS)/ Samantha Stosur (AUS)
Tamira Paszek (AUT)/Gisela Dulko (ARG)

May 30th, 2008, 08:15 PM
i have an opinion, instead of combining points, why not 1 person send for the whole team?

E.Dementieva_FAN
May 30th, 2008, 08:18 PM
Then the Dementieva/xy pair would win everything. :hearts: :devil:

champion88
May 30th, 2008, 08:28 PM
I was thinking of 1 person per pair, but from seeing other games, pairs rarely send new points etc.

May restart it but probably not until next season. :)

I'm not too sure but I think I remembered someone planning to run doubles ... Unfortunately, it didn't come through. :(

I do hope that doubles comes back because tennis wouldn't be tennis without some dubs. :p :)

champion88
Oct 5th, 2008, 10:51 PM
Deal with doubles is that I would probably have to run it - not saying i don't trust other players but if soemone else is receiving the points for doubles, they will see others' gameplans etc.

It is quite alot of work to combine points, and would also slow the game up in my opinion. If people really want to do it, then I don't mind?

I think OWTT is good now. And with doubles it will slow down and I don't want it! I like this game because results are fast. And making it slow because of the doubles is bad!!! :p

Maybe you can do it some other way. Like 1 player from the team will send normal points and just play it as a singles match, so you won't have to combine all the points, which is a hard work really. Run doubles only in big events like GS and Tier I. I think it would be a lot of fun to have doubles.

I just thought that if it was 1 player sending points, then we would have the same top dubs players as in singles?

Dec 7th, 2008, 08:18 PM
what if teams alternated who sent points?
with teams having to send new points or having a walkover?
again...only if this doesn't adversely affect the speed of the singles results!

I do like idea of doubles but not sure of points system whether to have same as singles or not as would have same top players in singles and doubles, and hard to enforce players sending alternately, given the pace of the game.

Also I often do whole tournaments in one day so wouldn't want doubles to slow the tour down as people seem to like the fast-paced nature of OWTT?

Well we can always find solutions.

* Picking the same partner all the time, or changing, but they need to let that know before the end of the previous tournament?

* Pace is no problem, I can easily do all during one day, and that's why we'll have assistant managers, to be able to make schedules with eachother, when that person will post, and then we still have volunteers. I can always post scores, no problem, I am always online till like 6am so...

But we can always work this out?

champion88
Feb 24th, 2009, 06:15 PM
But what I am saying is that we will often have the same top players in singles being top in doubles as well, so maybe a different score system for dubs?

I think if you add the 2 scores together for each game of their singles points it would not necessarilly mean you would get similar results to singles. eg Set 1) Pratt 12-38- .... and partner Smith Set 1) 1- 32 .... so game 1 & 2 the team score would be 13 - 70 does that make sense? It also saves the confusion of seperate points.....Just an idea

youizahoe
Feb 25th, 2009, 01:54 AM
Perhaps extend the third set for a super-tie breaker?

That's what I did before for dubs and it took a long time to work out all points as well as doing singles. If someone else was to run dubs it would mean them seeing everyone's singles points whcih wouldn't be fair. That's the only problem!

youizahoe
Feb 25th, 2009, 08:06 PM
Champion we can do it like this?

Set 1: 1 to 13
Set 2: 1 to 13
Set 3: 1 to 18 (super tie break limited to 10-8*)

youizahoe
Feb 25th, 2009, 09:09 PM
Champion we have discussed some possible point systems for doubles owtt.

Scenario 1:

Set 1: numbers 1 to 13
Set 2: numbers 1 to 13
Set 3: numbers 1 to 20 (Super tie break limited to 10-10)

Scenario 2:

We give you 100 points or less, and you split numbers under 3 sets, 20 points per set ! Also you can only use each number once.

Set 1: (20 points)
Set 2: (20 points)
Set 3: (20 points)

Scenario 3:

Each partner sends:

Set 1: 1 to 13
Set 2: 1 to 13
Set 3: 1 to 13

We then combine partner 1 and partner scores;

Example:

Player 1 set 1 = 01-02-03-04-05-06-07-08-09-10-11-12-13
Player 2 set 1 = 13-12-11-10-09-08-07-06-05-04-03-02-01
Combined set1= 14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14

Scenario 4:

One partner sends;

Set 1: 1 to 13
Set 2: 1 to 13
Set 3: 1 to 13

I can do all, but I have my managers to do some of the work too. So I can make a thread for them to sign up, and perhaps to start adelaide, right after the final (but also finish within 4 hours after adelaide has finished) ?
