We will post the deadlines here.

The first tournaments are scheduled to start on January 1. The first one is probably going to be Shenzhen. Shenzhen is GMT+8. So, if we assume a first round starting time of 11:00 a.m., then the deadline will be 3:00 a.m. GMT, 10:00 p.m. Saturday for US eastern time, and 7:00 p.m. Saturday for US pacific time.

Last year Brisbane started first, and the deadline to post teams was 9pm EST, 6PM PST on Saturday night. The staff will confirm the deadline after the Jan 1 order of play is released, but I would think it would be similar.

Yes, Brisbane is set to begin on January first. So deadline will fall some time during Saturday.

Brisbane starts at noon local time on Jan 1, so the deadline is Saturday night in the US. 9 pm EST, 6 pm PST. 13 hours from this post.

Week 2 will start with WTA at Sydney on Sunday. The first match will start at 11:00 a.m. local time. This will be Saturday/Sunday midnight GMT, 7:00 p.m. Saturday US eastern time and 4:00 p.m. US Pacific time. A trade thread will be opened shortly.

EDIT: Actually Hobart starts at 10:00 Sunday local time, and is in the same time zone as Sydney. So the deadline is Saturday 11:00 p.m. GMT, 6:00 p.m. Saturday US eastern, and 3:00 p.m. US Pacific time.

The previous post has an update. I hadn't realized that editing the previous post would not show up as a "new post".
