Ali Gray and Sarah Beth Grey have withdrawn from Tunisia & Thailand. I imagine they will be starting their seasons in Bath in Week 2.

 All the Thailand events. Week 1-4 have been cancelled now anyway.

It is going to be a challenging year spelling wise for Emma and Matilda are with us for a while so

Seagull will have weeks for creative tries at their surnames smile

 I have no problem with Emma's - very phonetic.

But Matilda's causes me grief, partly because it's very similar to Anton's, so they get mixed up in my little brain (I think Mut. and Mat. is sufficient....hope they don't mind....)

Mind you, ever since Tom Farq. stopped playing pro tennis, it's been a blessing - that always put me in a tailspin....

(NB Noted recently that he's a business consultant now)

Sad we will no longer see Jo on lists. But good to see all our now top 10 women apparently fit and ready for the off ( with Beth entered for Bath in week 2 ).

 Yes, the current system is great, as far as I'm concerned.


 Wasn't the system being generally applied recently to post a placeholder as the opening post but actually only edit that with the entries when the withdrawal entry passed?

So now, as here and for week 2. posting entries earlier is a change back.

I rather prefer them posted after withdrawal deadline, when much clearer, but looks as if I'm in a mnority. Fair enough, especially if updated after withdrawal deadline.

I like them posted early BUT I do like them to be updated promptly (if I'm being picky)

So I can come and look both pre- and post- deadline ....

That's what Little Lord Fauntleroy would like, your honour

I'd like then to be posted early and then rather than remove the player just change their colour to black to denote withdrawn (but I realise I'm odd)

I don't have a preference either way, but what I really don't like is before the withdrawal deadline choosing only one of a players entries. I prefer to know what a player's choices are, so I'd like to see all the entries before the withdrawal deadline unless they are already on an ATP/WTA list when, as with Harriet at the beginning of this thread, they wouldn't be able play any ITFs. To limit it to one, I'd rather wait until the player has made their choice.

I think seagull does a Sterling job with these lists, as I have said many times, I refer to them all the time. I am sure the whole board are grateful.

If people want them updated (which I understand) maybe those with admin status could help a little otherwise poor seagull will spend his life updating them (and I am sure nobody expects that!) I am not sure who the current admin are, and whether they are around enough. I was brought on board as one but my main remit was to delete the "kitchen spam". I have tried to help with a little updating but I really do not have the time beyond an occasional contribution.

Are there any other admin who can help out or, are their posters who would like to be admin for this task?

I also refer to the lists a lot, and try and post when I see any changes on the women's lists. I'm here pretty well every time, but I'm not an admin although I'm willing to help out.

I'm usually around quite a lot though hadn't been so much the last couple of months.

Certainly happy to update the entries post at times if seagull is OK with that.

Hi everyone - thanks for all the feedback.

I am not too busy at work at moment so hopefully you will see these updated on a regular basis. If things change then help would be good.

I will post initial lists usually on a Thu/Fri, then the updated one on Tue/Wed and hopefully update after that too.

I personally think it will look too messy to include all players to all events (so I will continue to use best guess until they have confirmed).

And I don't like the idea of greying out players who withdraw (and it's too time-consuming).

Happy New Year - Mark
