Would Anyone be interested in a Fantasy Season for the ATP?

If 16 or more people are interested, I will run the game. Here is how it works:
1. I come up with a schedule of 55 tournaments (singles only) and you (as the player) commit to 20 of them. There will be 5 different levels of tournaments (Grand Slam, Tennis Masters Cup, Tennis Masters Series, International Series Gold, International Series). You select a real ATP Player to compete in this Fantasy Season.

2. I will randomly select the draw, and then roll dice to see who wins each game in a match (a 1-5 means the server held serve, a 6 means the reciever broke serve) I generally finish each tournament in 2 days, and after you commit to your tournaments, you don't have to do anything but sit back, read the results, and hope luck is with you.

3. I think that the original deadline to sign up should be Saturday August 3rd at 9:00P.M. I will create and pm you (the players) the schedule, and then I expect you (the players) to pm me back your character's personal schedule. If only one person enters a tournament, they will automatically win the event.

4. Here is the point system I will use for rankings:
Grand Slam (4 Events):
Winner: 256
Finalist: 128
Semi-Finalist: 64
Quarter-Finalist: 32
Round of 16: 16
Round of 32: 8

Tennis Masters Cup (Final Event):
Same as Grand Slam except that only the top 1/4 (4 out of 16 or 8 out of 32) players will qualify.

Tennis Masters Series (10 Events):
Winner: 128
Finalist: 64
Semi-Finalist: 32
Quarter-Finalist: 16
Round of 16: 8
Round of 32: 4

International Series Gold (20 Events):
Winner: 64
Finalist: 32
Semi-Finalist: 16
Quarter Finalist: 8
Round of 16: 4
Round of 32: 2

International Series (20 Events):
Winner: 32
Finalist: 16
Semi-Finalist: 8
Quarter-Finalist: 4
Round of 16: 2
Round of 32:1

Points are NOT cumulative, and feel free to sign up at this location. I don't want to cause trouble so I will just post results in General Messages or here at games.

Unfortunately Glitter, unless you convince 15 other people to join the game in 28 hours, I won't run it.

Note: Anyone who includes LA in their schedule will automatically get Bangalore as their first tournament. I have schedules from: 2Ace2, Felix, Roddicktennisbabe, Glitter-Lucic/brother, and Kazblah sent a schedule, but I seem to have deleted it :o . You all have until Saturday Morning (EST) to send your points. If not you will automatically be entered into: The Grand Slams/Masters Series/ 5 random ISGs. If you send schedules via pm to me, I will NOT comitt those forgetting to send schedules to tournaments that you guys comitted to. (That way you win them automatically)
