I would say no because the match was not completed. If it were a complete set we could maybe count as 1-0 to see who was closer if some said 2-0 and some 2-1, but in this case I think the best thing would be to not count the set ratio. Let's see if Fred agrees

Re: Rules thread - 2012

Fred and I were discussing bonus points these days and how we need to change something for 2013. Tournaments of the lowest category (Internationals) are too valuable in terms of bonus points and we also think that there should be 5 tournament categories, just like in real tennis, as opposed to three we had so far (those five would be grand slams, premier mandatory events, premier 5 events, regular premier events and internationals). We also think that the top 3 categories should award bonus points for top 12 players, while the remaining two should only award top 8.

So after several failed attempts we came up with what seems like a good bonus point system, so tell us what do you think about it.

GS: 1)400; 2)275; 3/4)200; 5-8)120; 9-12)60
PM: 1)250; 2)175; 3/4)125; 5-8)80; 9-12)40
P5: 1)225; 2)150; 3/4)100; 5-8)75; 9-12)35
PR: 1)150; 2)100; 3/4)75; 5-8)50
IS: 1)100; 2)75; 3/4)50; 5-8)30

Sounds reasonable. After all, this year is an exception because of the Olympics, so we can count 9th position as some sort of special bonus points case. It would be ridiculous not to award any BP's for that.

Right. Forgot about that.

As Fred points out, if no one guessed the winner, you still count who was closer in games even if no one guessed the winner. If that doesn't settle it, then you check who was faster to send a pick.

Work backwards from the semifinals - who got more points in the round before the semis.
