About The League Structure
Saturday, October 5th

About the league structure: Awesome!
For the price of a weekend tournament or a 6 week "season" you can play tennis all summer as much as you can convince others to play.
Of course, its nice to be in Seattle, and when I once tried to set something up in Portland on a trip I was not successful, but that is not the fault of Brent's structure. Sometimes you can even convince a guy to play tennis without keeping score/competing. Its too rare, but again its not Brent's fault.
Change it, leave it the same, just please don't let it go away Brent!(...or do if you're just too busy with family, work etc)
I am only thankful for the tour since it has provided me with the opportunity to find tennis partners then to expand my tennis experience from there. I can't really overstate how great the tour has been for me. Thanks Brent! Enjoy the tennis!
Playoff Win
Saturday, September 7th

I like the match summary Bin

No. 8 Bin Wang defeated No. 3 Jeff Ducharme 6-3,6-7,6-3
It is an 7 hours match feels just like only 3.5 hours. Second longest in my tennis career. Every point is at least 100 shots. Some points are 500 shots. Our neighbor courts has changed at least 5 groups of players. Jeff''s serve isn''t on today. My serve is OK about 15mph which gave Jeff some trouble.

About The League Structure
Saturday, August 17th

My comments are for the Seattle A Tour mostly, as that is what I play and know. First, I think the structure is pretty solid, I have played when their was only a ladder system, in which players with losing records would play in the final group. Or players who were in the top 8 would play all of the other top 8 players but not those below, and even if they lost, they still stayed in said group. The point system implemented a few years ago helped with this a lot, as combining points makes things other than the ladder relevant. The point system, as I understand it, does weigh who beats who, and your rank, and even how many times you play. Their is even a strength of victory, etc. So it is a good system, but not perfect.

The problems: As Will said, players will play down and play against players who they know they are going to beat, just for the points. That is fine in my opinion at times, but not consistently. Will's other point talks about playing that same player again many times over the season and accumulating points which is a loophole in my opinion. Getting points for playing the same player in a two week period is a loophole and shouldn't happen either in my opinion.
Josh, I see your point, but remember the competitive league of the tennistour.org is different from just tennistour.org, one can play whoever they want as much as they want outside of the summer or fall league.

Generally, manipulating who one plays and choosing certain players has become a problem. Some players don't players other players to risk a loss, or they are friends and don't want to knock their friends rankings down. Some are ''full'' or unavailable but challenge other players when asked.

Finally, as a parent and one who cannot play often, the summer season is too long (4 months plus playoffs) and it favors those who play more. Now, I think playing should be encouraged obviously. But to what extent? If one plays 40 matches and loads up on cupcakes, they will certainly have a high point ranking, and may finish higher than a player who can only play say 10 times. Thus, if you want to finish high up and you can't play many matches, you have to win most of your matches which encourages, playing down!

My recommendations are 1. SEVERELY (maybe 1 point) limiting the number of points for someone ranked a lot lower than you
2. Capping the number of times one can beat the same player and get any points at 2 or 3. This encourages playing others.
3. Add a strength of schedule component, even if you don't win your matches, give bonus points for playing the higher ranked players often.
4. change the structure completely, have olympic style pool groups and mandatory matches and playoffs at the end. People can play whoever they want on their off day.


Anyhow, overall it is a good site/league with many good people and players. Brent, would you be open to forming a rules committee for next year to implement changes. What does everyone else think? Thanks! Tom
About The League Structure
Saturday, August 17th

If I find someone that I enjoy playing, I would play him as much as I can, sometimes as much as three or four times in 2 weeks period if he is willing to play. Some of favorite matches that I’ve played were with people ranked much lower than me, at least 8 ranks below. Most of the times, I’m grateful for my opponent that I’m actually playing tennis with someone and not just practicing serves by myself or wondering when I’m going to play. Everyone plays differently, and it’s pleasure seeing different style regardless of what their USTA rankings are. Thanks Brent for starting tennistour. Just my 2cent.
