I started a new game in 1.0h, and at least the issue of players traveling to tournaments without getting on a plane, then not being able to train while at the tournament, persists. This was a simpler situation this time.
Two players with very poor rankings were assigned as a doubles team, then sent off to U.S. Futures 1/2/3/4 to play in both singles and doubles. Their rankings in singles were so low that they needed to pass through qualifiers, but they did not need to qualify in doubles. They did not always win or lose in the same rounds. At the beginning of U.S. 2 the game asked me for each of them if I still wanted them to go through qualifiers for U.S. 3, and I said they should. Then one of them lost in the first round of the main draw for U.S. 2, while the other went on to win the tournament. They were also progressing as a team through the doubles main draw, but lost at some point before the finals. The game never asked me if I wanted the losing player to leave for U.S. 3, and eventually the winning player was given a wild card to U.S. 3.
Then the losing player was assigned 30 hours of training time, which was in addition to the 12 hours she received before her first round match. When I tried to have her spar, I was told there was no one available to train with her. As in version 1.0g, all I was allowed to train were physical skills and serving. After each qualifying round I was given two more training hours, so again the hours added up to over 42, plus matches. She qualified for the main draw. The next week her partner arrived at the same site, with the coach, but the teleporting player was still invisible, except to her opponents during matches. She did a lot of sprinting those two weeks, which was probably good for her, and may have helped to counteract the cigarettes, but I was really counting on those sparring hours to improve her technical skills.
The next week the winning player flew from U.S. 3 to U.S. 4 with the coach, but the losing player flew from U.S. 2 to U.S. 4. So apparently the game had simultaneously thought she never left U.S. 2 (which was why nobody could interact with her) and realized she was present at U.S. 3 during those moments in which she was actually in a match.
EDIT: UPDATE: About two months later almost the same thing happened again. Two members of a doubles pair, playing consecutive futures at the same location, both needing to qualify in singles but already qualified to the main draw in doubles. One exits the first tournament early and plays in the singles qualifier of the second tournament (I forgot to note whether she took a plane) while the other wins the singles title at the first tournament and is wildcarded into the second. This time I'm fairly certain that no extra training hours were assigned to the player in the qualifier, and that she was able to spar during the qualifier. As soon as the main draw began, she again became invisible and was unable to train anything but her serve and physical skills. This time the coach wasn't traveling with this team, and I didn't note whether the flight back to the training center was from different tournaments. (Sorry, but I was watching a basketball game while playing TEM, and it was distracting.)
As a suggestion for future versions of the game, after a new player signs a contract, the tournaments to which she is already committed should appear on her schedule. In versions of the game through (I think) 1.0f, players were never committed beyond the week in which they sign (and they always lost in the first round that week), but in both 1.0g and 1.0h I find that some players are committed for weeks in advance.
All three of the players I signed for my new 1.0h game flew from the tournament they were in directly to another the following week, without the game even giving me the option of bringing them to the training center instead. They all gave me the option of bringing them to the training center after they each lost in the first round of the following week's tournaments, but the last one I signed decided after one week at the center that she wanted to dash off to somewhere else. This time the game was polite enough to ask me if I wanted to let her go. I was curious, so I allowed it, and of course she lost in the first round again.
EDIT: ERROR CORRECTION: The game did NOT ask whether I wanted her to go. The popup was the standard one asking what class of flight, what level of hotel, and did I want the coach to go with her? What I agreed to was the coach going with her.
It doesn't bother me that my players had lives and plans before they joined my stable, but it does bother me that NONE of these tournaments were noted in their schedules. You should even note the ones they're playing in the week they sign, because two of the three I signed this game I was unable to find in the draws of any tournaments of those weeks, although the results did show up in their histories the following week.
