Welcome to the first slam of the year!

Remember to check through the following rules, some things have changed over the off season.

1. First and most important rule is that everyone can join!

2. After deadline's over a random draw will be generated.

3. You have to talk with your opponent and find the best time for both of you to play the match. You can chat here to find it or talk personally, furthermore to talk about who should host the game and much more.

4. There's a set deadline of 72 hours to play your match. If this deadline is not met, then the players must decide who will withdraw. If no player offers to withdraw then the more active one will go through. If neither player is cooperative/active then the winner will be chosen at random. If a player can give a valid reason for inability to play in the given time and can play lots of matches afterwards (and inform the manager ahead of time) then they might be given an extension.

5. If you can't find time to play tennis elbow then just announce it here. Your opponent wins by walkover. If there is the smallest doubt you will take longer than 3 days to complete a match then it may be helpful for others than you choose not to commit.

6. We play the MTF TE Australian Open, that means:
Surface: NewLine Synthetic.
Format: BO5



7. If you host you have to choose under the setting 'controls' the option 'Simulation controls'. We play with Ball preview on plus Danger zone, aiming off. Tiredness on and Realistic Mode, that's important.

8. To maximise the joy of this game it is recommended to utilise Hamachi Free to have lag-free matches resp. to avoid many lags. For more information on how to use or download Hamachi, PM me or ask in the thread.

9. Make sure the manager is informed of the score, typically people post a screenshot in the thread so others may see stats and score.

The tournament starts on Sunday 22nd January, so the draw shall be made at 10am GMT. You must commit before this deadline.

Did you fire WOATiola after that shameful Brisbane run and hired GOATlotti instead? If so then sure you will, in fact you would win the tournament, such is the excellence of GOATlotti

Not sure that I'll play, but still count me in :D
I'm in the same boat as you. Happy to be counted in the draw but it's going to be tough to play my matches this week (could even be away for a large portion of it :unsure:).

Speaking of BOATs, will the #1 be playing??? @BroTree123

Looks like we have only 12 players right now. And SdP and Griezmann have not confirmed officially too, The Ivan is however playing for sure. So that leaves us with 11 players. If it is fine then I can go ahead make the draw or should I wait for one more day.

Then @Stan del Potro would fill the last space in a 16-player draw. He said last week he wanted to play so I'd count him in (I'll contact him on FB to remind him). :)
