LATE ENTRIES / ALTERNATES
All players must enter online via TennisLink prior to the entry close date. Late entries are not permitted under any circumstances and there are no alternates allowed (even to replace withdrawals).
SEEDING / MAKING THE DRAW
The top two players/teams will be seeded using their ATP/WTA computer ranking (if any). In order for a singles player to be seeded, the player must have a ATP/WTA singles ranking. In order for a team to be seeded, both members of the team must have a ATP/WTA doubles ranking. The computer list dated seven days prior to the Monday of the tournament week will be used when determining seeds. If there are not two players/teams with a ATP/WTA ranking, then no players/teams will be seeded. After the “Lottery Selection Process” is completed to determine accepted entries and, prior to the draw, the National Tournament Director will determine the top two seeds (if any) and communicate the same to the Tournament Referee and Tournament Director.
The draw will be conducted by the Tournament Director or authorized representative in consultation with the Tournament Referee. Since late entries are not permitted, the draw should be conducted within 24 hours of running the “Lottery Selection Process” but no later than two days prior to the start of your tournament. The draw must not be made until after confirmation by the National Tournament Director of the top two seeds (if any). Making the draw is done automatically via TDM once the tournament is downloaded to TDM from TennisLink. Byes, if any, will be allocated to the top seed first followed by the second seed. The rest of the byes, if any, will be evenly distributed throughout the draw. Once the seeds and byes have been designated (if any) in TDM, the draw is made by clicking the “make draw” button. Once the draw is made it will be posted to this tournament home page.
