Rule Change Proposals for 2015 Season

If you have any ideas about a rule or several rules in TT that you want changed, then just post them in here and we will look at them at the end of the season.
Nothing will be done before the end of the season (unless there is a truly exceptional circumstance), this thread is more a place to write down an idea you have that you might forget about.

Feel free to make suggestions!

Re: Rule Change Proposals for 2015 Season

Let me start


1st

Rule about retirements

Current rule
Quote:
In case a player (i.e. the actual WTA Player) retires in a match, the match WILL count in TT as long as the first point has been played, but they do NOT COUNT for SRs, ISR (giving a set to a winner) or for TBs.
I think that rule should be changed (for TB). If pick count, it should count in TB too.

Example:

Everything is equal (picks, SRs, ISRs)

TB1 diffs are
Code:
Pera            Mika
JAKUPOVIC 63 64	ADAMCZAK 7-6 6-3
ADAMCZAK won by retirement

Winner is Mika in TB1 (picked winner) because picks counts and SRs and ISRs not.

With current rules we would go to TB2.




2nd

If we have a situation that manager put the deadline, for example, 10 AM, but start time is actually 9 AM. In such situations, we should accept these "late" picks, but in those matches in which at least one player sent later, matches which have already begun will not be counted. I think it would be fair, players should not be punished for managers mistakes.

Currently Board has resolved it like this: "Picks sent after 9 AM will not be accepted, as the matches have already started", and their explanation for this decision is "We always handeled this problem in this way". So from next year change your way.





3rd

Put this on voting again.




4th

May have to reconsider this again

So maybe we could give SEs for Premier tournaments too. But, first we need to split ITF tournaments into two categories. Small ITFs (10k, 15k, 25k and 50k) where winner gets 120 or 130 points, big ITF (75k, 100k) winner gets 150 points and WTA 125 where winner gets 160 points like now.
So, who wins small ITF gets SE for International tournament, and who wins big ITF or WTA 125 gets SE for Premier tournament.
There will not be SEs for Premier 5 and Premier Mandatory tournaments.

Maybe there's something else, but now I can not remember. I don't have good memory, like Michael.

Re: Rule Change Proposals for 2015 Season

I agree with all 4 of igorches suggestions and i have one of my own. This was brought forward in the TT board thread, it was that both dubs partners have to confirm to a tournament, so one partner cannot enter a team without the other entering too. This will stop dubs teams in MD or QD losing because one player did not know they were committed or were committed in another tournament. There type of teams also stop some teams from not being higher ranked enough for MD or QD and they have to be ALTs.

Another suggestion is maybe making the QD draws bigger in international and premier tournaments.

and one last one is that maybe the QR1 OOP at grandslams can maybe be halved because it takes way too long for those who have to play those rounds. It also results in some people not sending because the oop is so long. This is a big problem because sometimes the oop is like 50 matches and this us open it might be 64 we could sort which matches to include in oop through maybe picking the hardest matches.

hope this all made sense

Re: Rule Change Proposals for 2015 Season

I agree that retirements should count for TB's, but it has to be specified that they will count only for picks TB, so no SR ISR and points TB.

Re: Rule Change Proposals for 2015 Season

Also, SE for premier tournaments are way too much. I mean, the cut-off is usually around 30-35 for MD and 50-60 for MD. So adding a player ranked in the 150's-200's in the mix while denying a high ranked one seems very unfair. Maybe SE should be give only for 50k and above tournaments, if they match the number of MM; if not, maybe add also 25k.

Uh just no
Some players have only SE to get in MD for once while high ranked players get in MD or QD easily and on weekly basis

Re: Rule Change Proposals for 2015 Season

Restricting top 10 singles an doubles of playing too much MMs.

For example, they can play only 4 or 5 a year.

Re: Rule Change Proposals for 2015 Season

Make a rule that gives credit for giving the correct set but with the wrong winner before going by games given to the winner. (see Rome doubles final mess this year)

Even though it helped me and David in this situation, I don't think we really deserved to win

Re: Rule Change Proposals for 2015 Season

I think LE for doubles should be canceled (like on MTF). I mean, player should be able to wait first deadline to see where he will play and then to find a partner.
