I could do it, but I don't see why we would add last year's points to this year's race Besides, I don't know where to find those points cause I don't know which challengers we're talking about (I played only a few of the last tournaments in '08).

Re: 2009 race

These 2 ITF tournaments were played after the SEC and Marco-Alize wrote that these would count for the 2009 race. So please add them or I really think about quitting the game.

Re: 2009 race

Hello guys

I too can't understand Marco's attitude sometimes, although I appreciate his putting a lot of energy managing this game.

Anyway, I gather that DCS collected a few points in the ITF tourneys, but really I don't see any reason to include them in this year's ranking, even if Marco did say he would.
It makes much more sense to add them in last years rankings.

I hope we can all continue this game, but I'm not sure under whose Manager.

2016- Tipping: Winner-Dubai
2013- Tipping: Winner-AEGON Eastbourne;Carlsbad;Linz
2012- Tipping:Winner-Aus Open;London OG C-Y-P: Winner-Miami;Montreal Pentathlon:Winner-Stanford;London OG
2011- Tipping: Winner-Baku
2010- Tipping: Winner-Generali Ladies Linz;
2009 Winner Tipping:
Portoroz;2008 Winner Suicide Tennis: Generali Ladies Linz Tipping: Fortis Luxembourg;Kremlin Cup;Guangzhou;New Haven;OG Beijing;Los Angeles;Rome

I also appreciate his effort when it comes to managing, but he's putting even more effort into cheating. For example in Sidney he added himself points and took away some from bhebhe, so he ended up a quarterfinalist, therefore getting bonus points instead of bhebhe. And we're not talking a few points here, it's getting about 70 instead of about 30

When it comes to those ITF points, as I said, I don't object (if some of you are really keen on those points), but I can't seem to find any information about those tournaments ever being played, so I'm unable to add those points at the moment.

Anyway, don't worry, I don't want to be manager, I'll just keep up with this *fair* race list, just to see how different it will look from Marco's at the end of the season He'll probably have a few hundred extra points

Re: 2009 race

For what it's worth, I don't think they should count. One; they are from 2008, two; as far as I know this game doesn't include ITF tournaments, and three; there are too few people playing. Everyone who joined get a bunch of bonus points even if they barely participated and/or had everything wrong. And if you did participate every round and picked correct most of the time you could easily score tons of points because of the lack of competition, particularly in the first one.

Ivanovic - Jankovic - Bartoli - Cirstea
Tipping:
#9 Highest #1 Titles: 2009: Budapest, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, 2010: Sydney, Moscow
Suicide Tennis: #51 Highest #23 Win: Bad Gastein 09, 's-Hertogenbosch 10, RU: Osaka 09, Luxembourg 09
TT Singles: #114 Highest #106
TT Doubles: #62 Highest #62 Titles: 2009 ITF Saint-Gaudens(w Marco tennis), 2010 Barcelona (w WhoAmI)

As I stated earlier, I agree on not using these points for this year's race, even though I participated and even won of them.

I think this would be a good idea if you were to start managing this game. Too many good players are leaving because of Marco's attitude.

I'd only accept that role if majority of the participants would agree that they want such a change (by some kind of a poll).
