    TW play testers can't predict the result even if they can play.

    Yeah I noticed that. Normally they allow changes until a few minutes before matches start, but for some reason they locked over 12 hours before the first matches are scheduled to play. I was hoping to do some last minute changes, but alas, I can't. Oh well.

    These tennis channel brackets are getting full of more BS every year.

    They locked picks already????!!!! I have an email from them saying picks would be open until 11am Monday morning.

    Nice way to screw everyone.

    Yeah, I forgot to change the winner of the Isner-Kohlschrieber match to Kohl. :oops:

    I hope Novak, Andy, Rafael, Roger, and the other top players lose early. That will wreck my draw. :mad:

    Aww, I was too late to make a bracket :( I was gonna do it sunday evening, and couldn't figure out how to make picks, and then I came here to see whether anyone else had the same problem, and I guess it's just too late :(

    I didn't do it Friday because I wanted the bracket to include the names of the qualifiers who made it into the main draw and they were not updated with the names yet.

    Then I wanted to do it Saturday but the bracket page would not load for some reason.

    So I went back to it today (Sunday) and now the bracket page loads but I cannot click on any names to make any picks. Now I find out it's because they've already locked the bracket even though it's supposed to be open until Monday at 11:00am EST? This is ridiculous! :???:

    Sorry everyone about the pre-mature lockage. I tried messing around with admin privileges and I can't do anything about it. If it makes you feel any better, I also couldn't get my bracket in. So be sure to follow the rest of the TW playtesters who didn't procrastinate. :)

    Good luck everyone!

    I've tried many times over the weekend and I was not able to log in or make any pics due to server problems. Even all last night and this morning it would not allow me to pick on the ladder.

    I got an email this morning with the message "ATTENTION: We are aware that some of you had trouble entering your picks for the US Open for several hours yesterday. This email is to make you aware that you will now be able to log in to your account and make your selections in time for the first match of the US Open.
    Remember, you need to have your picks saved before 11:00am(EST) in order to be entered into the main pool.
    We apologise for any inconvenience caused."

    Ladder picks are showing up but when clicking on a name, it doesn't register and move down the ladder. Boo for racketbracket!!!
    I can't pick now that the tournament has started.

    Heh. 11 AM Eastern is 8 AM pacific - by the time I got the email on monday morning, it was far too late for making picks.

    Oh well. Maybe next time.

    "The day before" is like the worst possible time for an outage...

    Mine shows 0 too but I get emails saying I am 117.

    The crappy TTC website must be messed up but I feel sure the points are still being tracked.

    Man TTC really has made the racquet brackets terrible. I wish the ATP Challenge website could handle the Grand Slams. It does a much better job than TTC.

    Received an e-mail:

    Update Information :

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the email. Your private pool should begin to display points in the next 24 hours, as it's currently cached to a previous state. I hope this answers your question, and good luck for the tournament!

    Kind regards,
    Support Team
