Qualifying draws

Postby daniiiel048 » 25 Oct 2017, 02:18

Hello Manu, and everyone, I'm working on a mod of the TourAtp.ini with the real calendar of this year including all ATP events, challengers and some futures.
I'm having a little problem regarding the qualifiers, especially in Slams and Masters. It seems that a lot of the players ranked 120-250 don't enter the qualyfing draw of the grand slams and masters, instead they go and play some challenger or another event, so I got a lot of guys ranked 300, 400 and 500 in the qualies. This happens at a lot of events but it's specially bad in slams, considering that in reality almost every player ranked high enough enters the qualies.

I've already tried increasing the top presence value up to 1.0 but that doesn't seem to have an effect on the qualies at all. The only solution I've found right know is modyfing the challengers that take place that same week so no players ranked better than 250 can play in them but there are still some players that don't enter the draw, so I want to know if there is another method of getting the best players at the qualies of the major tournaments.

Thanks everyone in advance.

Hello,

I don't think you can do anything to change that ; the players always favor main draws over qualies.

I'll tune that for TEM2/TE4.

I just checked in depth that issue.

So the problem is that low ranked players go to the main draw of the Challenger tournaments the week before the Grand Slams, and thus don't go in the qualies of the Grand Slam that same week (in reality, they can do both).

Maybe you could create a special Challenger category that would take only players ranked below 300 for the Challengers scheduled the week before each Grand Slam.
