Ondrej, It is very sad to see you leave the game under these circumstances. Thank you for all the hard work which you have put into this game in recent years - it is very much appreciated.

Oooops, sorry I missed it.

Well I haven't worked with it for more than a year, I must unpolish it and see what I find there.

Thanks for the advice.

The idea is that the doubles will be played only on sunday, right? It is a 1-day match and picking the winner of the tie will have to be done on saturday. I am not in favor! Picking doubles might not be as nice as the singles, but it is fed cup! So it is different!

Re: "Ask the board" thread!

I kind of agree with you, but I also agree about the randomness of picking just doubles matches since most of them are dead rubbers by that point. Anyone have any other suggestions?

No, you don't have to pick on Saturday. You can pick the winner based on the score after Saturday's play.

Fairly obvious in most matches where it's 2-0, but there have been turnarounds before.

The doubles is a complete lottery because players withdraw or are inserted depending on the score. I usually go with the 'strongest team' and rarely look at the actual players because of this - and therefore I think it should be replaced with the winner of the tie.

I agree! Maybe we could even predict the winning score (3-0/3-1/3-2, since dead rubbers shouldn't be considered)

Maybe the doubles teams predict ALL day 2 matches?

Glad to hear you are not leaving.

You have been amazing in managing and making the TT run smoother.

The break will also do good for you, since you will have less responsibilities here, so you can focus on the important matters.

That could do as a compromise, but I still don't like picking the doubles match.

Re: "Ask the board" thread!

as far as i personally am concerned, whatever lacy wants is fine by me. i've never really got overly involved in organising fed cup and with withdrawals, dead rubbers and weird doubles matches it can be a bit of a crapshoot.

I agree with the dead rubbers. We don't count them, right?
For the fact that other people will play, i guess that is the nice extra thing, you have to guess who will be playing before you can pick. Just did it for the davis cup and that is not so bad!

Re: "Ask the board" thread!

I know this doesn't really apply for a while, but I have been wondering about this. I will reach the 3 month mark in the middle of Miami. Am I allowed to play Miami or will I have to wait?
