FMTA #17 - WASHINGTON

HOW TO PLAY



Choose a Mens Tennis player (Past or Present) of your liking. You have 400 points to be distributed amongst 4 surfaces (Hard, Clay, Grass, and Indoor). You may put a maximum of 115 points to one surface and a minimum of 90. You also have one Tiebreak Bonus which you will assign to one of 4 surfaces. These points can only be distributed once and may not be rearranged.



SCORING SYSTEM



When sending in points, you must split your surface points into 3 sets, 5 for Grand Slams. You will send points for each match you play and be compared with your opponent’s points. Differences in points between players per set is as :-

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

For example :

PLAYER A sends :

1. 20
2. 70
3. 10

PLAYER B sends :

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. If no player has bonus on tiebreak the lower ranked will pass through with a tiebreak of 10-8. If both have bonus tiebreak the highest ranked player will pass through with an 11-9 tiebreak.



EXTRA BONUS



Player ranked First 5 points more on each surface.
Players ranked Second-Fifth 3 points more on each surface.
Players ranked Sixth-Tenth 1 point more on each surface.
Usa players playing at home 1 point more on each surface.
Europeans playing at Europe 1 point more on each surface.
Europeans playing at home 2 points more on each surface.
South Americans playing at home 3 points more on each surface.
South Americans playing at South America 2 points more on each surface.
Australasians playing at Australasia 2 points more on each surface.



DOUBLES



In Doubles points will be an average of the two players' doubles ranking playing in each team.

Re: FMTA #17- Washington...under construction

OK, I'm still aiming for a Tuesday start with this schedule.

Singles:

Tuesday - half of R32
Wednesday - other half of R32
Thursday - R16
Friday - QF
Saturday - SF
Sunday - Final

Doubles:

Wednesday - half of R16
Thursday - other half of R16
Friday - QF
Saturday - SF
Sunday - Final

Obviously, these could change depending on the number of entries, especially if we stay closer to 20 entrants than 32.

Now, about live scores...

On Tuesday, I can't do live scores at all. I had a prior commitment that I forgot about that night. My apologizes. For that day, ALL points will be due 4 pm ET/8 (?) pm GMT, and the scores will be done right there.

For Wed-Fri, live scores will start at 4 pm ET, but I'll extend the points deadline until 5 or 6 pm ET.

Saturday will change things. I'm going away for the weekend, but I'll still have time to do live scores late morning/early afternoon. For Saturday, points will be due at 11 am ET/3 pm GMT, and live scores will be done right after.

For Sunday, the finalists will have a bit more time than usual. I'll tentatively set the points deadline for 7 pm ET, and the finals live scores will occur at soon as I get home on Sunday. If it's too late for the finalists, they can request a "rain delay" and a Monday, and bad rep me til their heart's content. :p

Anyway, that's the situation. I figured I'd let everybody know before the tournament starts.

Re: FMTA #17- Washington...under construction

If it wasn't obvious, Querrey is in. He is also looking for an assistant manager to receive his (losing) and his opponents' points. :wavey:

Ljubo in looking for a doubles partner :)

Re: FMTA #17- Washington...Commit for singles and doubles!

Really? I did not see his name on the list of accepted players. Where did you get the info from?
Chela is in for singles. Once he confirms that he's playing doubles with Pim-Pim, they will be added to the doubles list.
