HOW TO PLAY

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**
