Re: Off-Season suggestion thread

The doubles idea is merely singles in a new form. It won't reflect a new ability, right? The doubles ranking will be a 2nd chance for singles. Why not do doubles suicide with the doubles bracket? But as a team. IDK. Shoot me.

Its not really a second chance at singles coz you have to rely on your partner to pick well also. You could be the best suicide player but if your partner picks tammy tanasuagarn to beat anyone on clay then you aren't going to win.

Re: Off-Season suggestion thread

US Open Series Challenge.

Since me and Sjoerd are running all the US Open Series tournament [ and Matt the US Open ], I figured we could have our own series with the top 3 winning rewards, privileges, etc. We could use the same scoreboard/standings as the real US Open Series. But what would the prizes, rewards be? A 1R bye at the US Open has been discussed but the rewards need to come in three -- with the top prize being more lucrative than the second, and the second more than the third.

Any ideas?

Re: Off-Season suggestion thread

I know this won't fly with most people, but its an idea, why not give more ranking points for the winners. The series winner gets 175% of their us open points, 2nd place gets 150% and 3rd gets 125%.

Re: Off-Season suggestion thread

Making one grand slam worth more than the others -- I don't think so. Thinking of rewards will be difficult.

Re: Off-Season suggestion thread

3 byes in a grand slam means only choosing 9 girls. Choosing 9 girls in a slam is really throwing ranking points at the champion.

WOW. Below the belt. I am putting a curse on Kirilenko -- well, that'd be a waste of a curse, forget that. I WILL BE RANKED IN THE TOP 32 BY THE US!
