In SAP Open, Nishikoir was an SE. What is it?
theroger fan is correct. special exempt
Once a player has signed-in for the qualifying event at a tournament, or is a Direct Acceptance, Wild Card or Special Exempt into Main Draw, he is committed to that tournament unless released therefrom by the ITF Supervisor/Referee. Players are prohibited from participating in a qualifying or other event for a tournament at the same time they are participating in another tournament in either singles or doubles. Players found to have entered two tournaments in one week shall not be allowed in the Tournament or Circuit or shall be immediately defaulted forfeiting all prize money and computer or circuit points (where applicable) and losing their eligibility for the Masters Tournament for the Circuit (where applicable).
4. Special Exempts
A player qualified to and who wishes to apply for Special Exempt status must do so by personally notifying either verbally or in writing the ITF Supervisor/Referee prior to the time that the qualifying draw is made. If there are not sufficient Special Exempt places in the main draw for all the applicants, the players shall be selected in accordance with their rankings on the latest approved computer ranking list available. If there is no qualifying competition, or if Special Exempts are not needed prior to the time that the qualifying draw is made, then the places in the Main Draw reserved for Special Exempts shall become places for Direct Acceptances. The first two Alternates on the Acceptance List can preserve their eligibility for unused Special Exempt places by personally contacting the ITF Supervisor/Referee on-site prior to the qualifying sign-in Deadline. If the Special Exempt places are used then these Alternates are not eligible to play the qualifying. If a Special Exempt place is not so preserved, any unused Special Exempt places(s) shall be filled by entered players who have signed in for Qualifying to be selected in accordance with the rankings on the Acceptance List.
If prior to the Entry Deadline it is established that there will be no Special Exempts into a Futures Tournament or week 1 of a Satellite Circuit because there are no “Qualified Tournaments” in the week preceding the Tournament, then the places reserved in the Main Draw for Special Exempts shall become places for Direct Acceptances and will be indicated as such on the Acceptance List.
Special exempt ?
It seems this guy came out of nowhere and I guess the SAP Open people wanted him in their tournament so they gave him a spot.
I've also read in some guy's post that SEs also mean protected ranking, but that's not the case here obviously.
You are tottaly correct, Duzza..
Great finding, and woderful explanation.
I thought it mean South East. Now I know better.
No worries. I found it all by myself
of Scrambled Eggs.
Duzza, suggest you start a poll now. I predict South East will win.
Oh this is going to get ugly...
SE = stupid example
Nishikori is a Stupid Example of a Special Exempt with Slam Expectations.
oooo, good one. You win.... scrambled eggs.
omg, is this becoming a word game ?
You are something else!
There has to be a Simple Explanation for this !
lol.......I shoulda made it public so we can single out the idiot who picked scrambled eggs!!!
Nishikori's strokes were strikingly elegant,
his winners stunningly effective,
his attitude strangely emotionless ...
p.s. this thread is going to get weird when shwettytennisballs or tokyopunk get into the fray :-D
Sorry Excuse but Super Effective way to raise his Self Esteem through Sex Education with Single Ended, Self Erection
The Mods may START EXTERMINATING this thread, If one SHOUTS EXPLICIT words, so, SPEAK EASY friends...
It stands for special exempt.
Why reviving this irrelevant 5 years old thread?
What is the point. It is just stupid.
It got you to post in here twice, didn't it?
Separate names with a comma.
