Rules/Sign up for the new FMTL

Instructions:

1. Pick a player that is ranked within the top 100, or a famous player from the past.
2. Pick a surface order (Rebound Ace, Clay, Grass, Hard, Indoors)
3. On your first surface you will get 250 points, Second: 245 Third: 240 Fourth: 235 Last: 225
4. For each tournament you must divide your points into 5 sets.
5. Example both players using 240 points:


Safin ponts:
Set 1: 60
Set 2: 40
Set 3: 70
Set 4: 35
Set 5: 35

Mathieu points:
Set 1: 20
Set 2: 100
Set 3: 60
Set 4: 50
Set 5: 10

Safin d. Mathieu 6-3 2-6 7-5 5-7 6-4


6. For each set whoever has more points will win that set.
7. You may add points to your surface if you win a tournament:
IS – 3 points
ISG – 5 points
MS – 10 points
GS – 15 points
You can never have more as 270 points to use on a surface, because more would make you to powerful.
You will have this points on that surface until the same tournament is played in the next year. You don't get bonus points for doubles, just use your singles points.
8. Doubles Teams will be singles points added together. That way, it is easy for me to use points without a deadline.
9. Set Differentials:


6-0 ( > 100)
6-1 (100 – 80)
6-2 (79 – 60)
6-3 (59 – 40)
6-4 (39 – 20)
7-5 (19 – 10)
7-6:

7-0 (9)
7-1 (8-7)
7-2 (6-5)
7-3 (4-3)
7-4 (2)
7-5 (1)
10-8 (0):

- The one which wrote the most articles won the CT automatically.
But didn't write articles:
- If one sends points for the tournament, and the other didn't.
The one which send new points wins.
- A Coin Toss
But if there are 2 CT in 1 match both players will win 1.





10. Schedule of Tournaments:

Rebound Ace:
1: Auckland (IS)
2: Sydney (MS)
3: Adelaide (ISG)
4: Australian Open (GS)

Clay:
5: Estoril (IS)
6: Monte Carlo (MS)
7: Barcelona (ISG)
8: Roland Garros (GS)

10: Queens (MS)
11: Nottingham (ISG)

Indoor:
19: Metz (IS)
20: Madrid (MS)
21: Basel (ISG)
22: Rome (GS)

23. Shanghai (Masters)

11. Doubles will only be played at MS and GS, for doubles I do the singles points together.

12. IS tournaments will be 1 week
ISG tournaments will be 1 week
MS tournaments will be 1 week
GS tournaments will be 2 weeks
After a GS there will be a week without any tournaments.

13. We have place for 32 players, each part of the season you have to send points at least once, can be every tournament if you want. If you don't send for a whole part (4 tournaments) of the season you will be retired.

14. In a tournament you can't change your points

15. Sign up now, please post your surface order when you sign up.

Players who already signed up for this game have to sign up again.

Re: Rules/Sign up for the new FMTL

I'm away from August 30 til September 26 so does that mean if I put in points before I go they can be used for all tournaments while I'm gone?

Then you are still here when the 1st tournament is, 6 weeks later the clay season starts.
So I think you are back on time then. I will use you RA points for all that weeks, not needed to send new ones. So there is no problem I think.

I know, but otherwise it would be to many hard tournaments.
I decided to give Indoor also a GS, the GS will be every year in another place.
