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.

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? :confused:

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.

He is not in top 100 but I will accept, he is so close to the top 100.
Every tournament is best of 5 sets, it's not real, but we also have 5 GS's, 1 on Indoors, which will be in Rome the 1st year.
P.S. Auckland starts Monday, you have 235 points to divide into 5 sets.
