Is it OK to vote on yourself?? :twisted:
It was a fun format, although that would mean more matches-more injuries-more complaining.
EDIT; You should have included Veroniquem and Babette into the poll ! :)

vive le beau jeu !

they fortunately got rid of this abomination.




... especially the 'hybrid round robin format' (İmr.mickey), one of the worst creation ever by mankind.
i found that :

from : http://www.atptennis.com/en/players/ATP_Rulebook2007.pdf

but that's not very clear :

in this table, it doesn't appear that you win more points if you win the tournament being undefeated (it would be logical, like at the masters)
or maybe you add the points earned in the RR stage to your 35 points for the final win ?... but i don't think it works like this, that wouldn't be coherent with the points earned in 2006.
the RR column probably gives the points you get if you win only one RR match, i think. but the least we can say is that they could have been more explicit ! :p
they could have added a line for the 24 draw (http://www.atptennis.com/en/news/2007/rr.asp) case !

ummm... your opinion, you tennis fans ? ;)

I wasn't sure if the poll was serious or sarcastic.

So I voted both ways :)

That is a tough question for me to answer, TMOP...

I am not the best at expressing what I feel through words, so I think this link will show exactly what I think of you

Looks like gj011 is/was the most objective one so far.
