Cool ETA News that You Can Use!

Hi people, here are some ETA NEWS

*Draws for Goldcoast/Auckland will be up morrow after the Sanex/Volvo semifinal results are posted

*You can find the ETA thread in the Goldcoast thread. The Auckland tournament will also be in the Goldcoast thread! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

*I have decided against using new special surface points for the time being. Even before we used them, I could tell there would be a problem with them. I will continue to think of other ways to make the game more realistic.

*The following players have earned WILDCARDS into Goldcoast:<br />Daniela Hantuchova (Aussie WC)<br />Patty Schnyder (Former Champion WC)<br />Pam Shriver (Improving Player WC)

The fourth WC will go to the winner of the Volvo Women's Open.

*QUALITY POINTS will begin with the new season! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

brian, may i know where i stand?

i dont suppose i'm in the main draw right?<br />btw, my player is Chris Evert (in case you've forgotten)

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

These are how WILDCARDS are decided usually:

1st WC Defending Champion/Previous Champion<br />2nd WC Country<br />3rd WC Lower Tier Event Champion<br />4th WC Improving Player

In the case for Adidas, there are two WCs for Lower Tier Events, and the other one is the Aussie WC. So I had to decide between giving the 4th WC to a defending champion or an improving player.

Sabatini, Zvereva, Davenport, if awarded the WC, would be playing in the event without their doubles partners. Shriver has earned a fair share of WCs so far, so she might be relegated to the lower tier event. I won't decide who the 4th WC goes to until next week.

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

"No, I'm not. But with you, I don't even care."

did cris fernandez get any wildcards? at this rate, she andtammy wont be an asian duo for most of the year ... <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

Cris has a chance to earn a WC at the Tokyo Pan Pacific, the Asian WC. Right now there is only one Asian WC. You and Su-Wei Hsieh are competing for that WC, but I think I'll offer two Asian WCs, meaning that both of you would get in! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
