Fmta Rules 2008

Instructions on how to play and Rules

You must Choose one Men player of your like. You will be awarded 400 points to be distributed among 4 surfaces (Hard, Clay, Grass, and Indoor). You may put a maximum of 115 points to one surface and a minimum of 90. You will also be awarded one Tiebreak Bonus which you will assign to one of 4 surfaces. These points will be distributed only once and may not be rearranged.

Scoring System
When sending in points, you must split your surface points into three sets, 5 for Grand Slams.

Best of Three Matches

51 pts. or more - the set is 6-0
41-50 - the set is 6-1
31-40 - the set is 6-2
21-30 - the set is 6-3
16-20 - the set is 6-4
10-15 - the set is 7-5
7-9 - the set is 7-6(0)
6 - the set is 7-6(1)
5 - the set is 7-6(2)

3 - the set is 7-6(4)
2 - the set is 7-6(5)

Best of Five Matches
41 pts or more - the set is 6-0
35-40 - the set is 6-1
28-34 - the set is 6-2
22-27 - the set is 6-3
17-21 - the set is 6-4

3 - the set is 15-13
2 - the set is 16-14
1 - the set is 17-15
0 - the set is 18-16

You will send points for each match you play and be compared with your opponent’s points.

For example :

PLAYER A send :

1. 20
2. 70
3. 10

PLAYER B send :

1. 3
2. 91
3. 6

PLAYER A won 6:4 3:6 7:6(3)

TieBreak System
This system is applied when there is no difference.
Each player has bonus Tiebreak in one surface. The one with the Bonus on Tiebreak will win it by 9-7 [19-17 in best of five matches]. If no player has bonus on tiebreak the lower ranked will pass through with a tiebreak of 10-8[20-18 in best of five matches]. If both have bonus tiebreak the highest ranked player will pass through with an 11-9 tiebreak[21-19 in best of five matches].


Points from both partners will de added up and then divided by two.
