Davis Cup

Postby stevedaytona » 21 Jun 2007, 01:07

Having made my player British, I successfully got him to #2 ranking and partnered Andy Murray to bring home the Davis Cup!

Then, the next year, in the 1st round, UK plays Italy. I win the 1st game, but Andy loses - in fact he has to retire as he got injured. As Andy is also a doubles player (my player isn't), Italy has a W/O as they also do in Andy's 2nd singles - this means UK lost 2-3.

I don't know how easy this is, but Davis Cup needs setting up differently to be realistic. Davis Cup are teams of four players and any of these can play singles or doubles. In these circumstances, either my player or the 4th player would have played the doubles, while the other singles would have been played by either of the other 2 players.

Also, it shouldn't be necessary to "enter" the doubles as well as singles - you should just enter Davis Cup.

I suspect this won't be simple to do but it needs looking at, I think.

Hello,

humm, this is strange, normally players shouldn't get injured, except by exhaustion, during Davis Cup : this is the tricky solution I did to take care of this special case... :roll:

I'll do a better solution in the future.

By any chance, did you keep your saved games, I'd like to see what injury got Andy...?

Yes, I did save the game straight after it happened. I'm emailing it along with the 3 previous autosaves.
