S8 Sign-In/Surface Change/S7 Awards

Hi everyone!

And so another season draws to a close, all in all I've been happy with how the season panned out, of course there were perhaps 1 or 2 delays with results as is to be expected but I was pleased that a core group of 16 or so players remained committed throughout the entire season Hopefully all will return and maybe even a few new faces As Queen MK said in the YEC thread, it would be nice to see more players get involved, particularly the ones who are actually doing well as the game can only get better with more rivalries and personalities.

To confirm your participation in S8, please post in this thread. Only players who check-in here will be included in the S8 line-up. As usual, you can all change your surface preferences slightly by moving a surface up or down by 1 space, i.e.

S7
Plexi
Clay
Grass
Hard
Indoors

S8
Plexi
Grass +1
Clay -1
Indoors +1
Hard -1

S7 awards will also be given out here in the coming days, we'll find out which lucky winners will walk away with trophies in the following categories

1. Player of the season
2. Tournament of the season
3. Best newcomer
4. Most improved
5. Rivalry of the season
6. The Nathalie Dechy award for excellence in bitchery
7. The Anastasia Myskina award for excellence in underachievement
8. The Maria Kirilenko humanitarian award
9. The Serena Williams award for most likely to be retired by Sydney
10. Best Plexi/Clay/Grass/Hard/Indoors players

Ok, enjoy the holidays everyone, and see you back for S8 on January 7th

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: S8 Sign-In/Surface Change/S7 Awards

Since Serena had 4 aces in the last part of the season because that's the only part of the season she played (logical...), I assume she can change her surfaces entirely?

Serena

Plexi: 3
Clay: 2
Grass: 4
Hard: 1
Indoor: 0

Re: S8 Sign-In/Surface Change/S7 Awards

^ Woz is unsure of where she will focus her points for next year. She is willing to take ideas from her fellow peers, however.

Oh and she better win most improved

Re: S8 Sign-In/Surface Change/S7 Awards

Wait, is Serena REALLY trying to go from 4 aces on indoors last season to 0 this season?

Anyway, Dani is back of course.

S8:
Hard
Indoors
Plexi
Grass +1
Clay -1

I'm afraid you can't do this Serena Your indoor points from S7 will stay on your ranking for most of S8 so switching up your surfaces like this isn't fair and would skew your points. Indoors has to be either your 1st or 2nd surface for the new season
