And yet another WTF final that ends in the same score for the millionth time :lol: That lag/glitching was torturous for both of us though, and I tried to not hang around too long in case the connection dies in those conditions. Well played and all the best for 2017 mate.

Another suggestion for next season: make BroTree123 play at 0% stats to give the rest of us a chance. :p Even with a malfunctioning computer and 9% lag he finds a way to win.

MTF TE Review


Finally! Finally! Finally! Finally we have our winner of the MTF Tennis Elbow World Tour Finals and it is once again BroTree123. People were already joking if we ever found a winner for it, tags have been created that we should cancel it. Comparisons were made to Belgium's no elected government-record (589 days) or to MTF's TopSpin 4 tournament in 2013 which still haven't played their Semifinals yet (A not so subtle dig to tournament director Mark Lenders). But thanks to organizers' work (by mentioning the players all the time :lol: ) and the players' commitment we can finally state that it was all worth. What happened the last three days?

Group stage

As it was all said and done at the last matches of both's groups, one dead rubber still gave us a very entertaining match after all. At first nobody bat an eye at the match between CommissarSJ and meninosantos, as there was nothing at stake. Just maybe the blame of receiving the 0-3. However, the match turned out to be one of the most exciting matches of the tournament. Both were clowning at first, looked more like a slicefest than a real competitive match with awesome rallies. Both players didn't face any breakpoints and following this logic all the sets had to be decided by breakers. The Portuguese raising star had head start for it, quickly leading 6-0 and the spectators already were set to buy some snacks and drinks to witness the second set. However, two double faults and the mocking of a handful fans really brought meninosantos to swear on court in Portuguese. The chair umpire, nobody else then Johnny Groove, totally unfocused as he was thinking of this old pervert taking pics of the young female guns in tennis, didn't pay attention to it. :mad: :no:



The Icelander capitalized from his little outburst and its following lacking alertness, hit two aces in a row, yelled 'Láttu ekki svona!' and was totally pumped up. The Portuguese looked a bit insecure and a missed bh dtl after a 30+ shots rally put himself into a dangerous situation. The Commissar saved the last set point with an awesome fh crosscourt return winner and brought the mood to the boiling point. Amazing breaker and comeback, wow. After another minibreak the Icelander converted his first setpoint with an ace, holding his finger to the temple of his head. The Portuguese smashing his racket a la Gulbis.

The second set was a bit boring at the beginning, both holding their service games quite easily. Nobody wanted to go risk of losing too much energy after a long season. The breaker got even more interesting than the one before, Commissar facing two match points. The Icelander emulated his opponent and hit a df first, an incredible fh dtl winner helped him to stay in the match. One of many he already hit. Meninosantos held his serves quite easily, whereas the Jesuit had trouble to keep cool and a missed first shot sealed the deal for the Portuguese. Fist bumping like there's no tomorrow. A glorious choke looked to be inevitable.

After the break Commissar had to serve first and faced a quick 0-40 after several ues. After a failed S&V-attempt meninosantos converted his first break point to take the lead of the match in decider and to serve it home. The Portuguese hold his games with ease and nobody bet on a surprise. Even he himself didn't believe in it, yelling 'Sonur kex' to his opponent after another fh dtl winner. 30-0, *5-4 serving, spectators were already walking towards the wardrobe and the Portuguese out of a sudden had another meltdown after two double faults. A failed dropshot attempt brought Commissar back to the game, restarting this clowns' match and going on in the breaker. Both facing tons of matchpoints, but yet too well saved by the other, Commissar finally sealed the deal after a fh cross winner in an endless rally. 200 points go to Iceland and the quite relieved North European threw his racket to the crowd. The Portuguese as a fair gentleman waited at the net, congratulated him and had a nice chat. Fans were electrified and couldn't stop cheering. Great match, buds, we'll remember 'ya for 2017.


Semifinals

Eagerly expecting the Semifinals, people have to queued quite long to get the last tickets. The world number 1 vs the World number 2! Who did want to miss that? Beforehand another scoop was awaiting the fans: One of the best on carpet - the Dutch Nadalsknees - against the recent on fire youngster Silverbullet96! Awesome matches.

The first scheduled match was between the Indian and the winner of St. Petersburg. High quality needs to be redefined! Awesome exchanges and rallies mixed up with some dramatic mistakes. Especially Silverbullet96 was serving superbly at the beginning, but Nadalsknees knew how to deal with his bombing serves and by the middle of the set he capitalised from his unforced errors and took up the lead in the first. Towards the end of the first the Dutch felt a bit tired after all his efforts after this year, needed to take a MTO for his knees before serving for the set. Unfortunately, because he clearly seemed out of his rhythm. Two double faults led Silverbullet to a comfortable situation and Nadalsknees helped him out as a bh shot reached right the core of the net. However, a stellar fast change to his former self let him face three break points again to serve for the set again, but the young talent proved how much he's improved in recent weeks and revealed his clutchest tennis. Although annoyed, the Dutch kept on the high intensity and the Indian came out on the short end in the breaker.

Collecting himself Nadalsknees stormed his way to a very quick break lead. Astonishing winners left and right let the experienced carpet-courter hold his serve despite several breakpoints he did save thanks on his own merits, but also thanks to some confused shots by his opponent. His eyes set on the finishing line, however, Nadalsknees got simply outplayed by peak Silverbullet96. Heavy shots, a clear mind and his cheat sheet in the bag ( :secret: ) made him serve for the set after all and hold his serve once again, tho Nadalsknees wasn't anything near to be bad. Forgot his choke in the second set and didn't unfold unlike other known Dutch players, Nadalsknees kept cool in the decider and waited for his bp-chances. Several hard-fought games later Nadalsknees once again faced break points and converted the very first to serve for the match and stand in the final. An easy hold sewed it up and the Dutchman felt quiet happy after his tremendous match he had against his opponent. Leading the internal H2H now 3-1.

Or play all tournaments on Realistic or free mode the latter is more prone to upsets.


Anyway sorry for not staying to chat after the match. @BroTree123 I am just fed up with this strange lag glitching, which kept slowing my timing on serve and baseline shots. I guess it's just impossible for us to play on normal conditions, with the distance we are both playing on. But Managames needs to fix these problems, if it's possible. Anyway all the best for 2017 to you aswell and show some more mercy to everyone. It's not really fun this way when the same guy wins it all.
