TTC Court Report: Women's Stock Report + 2012 Predictions by Davenport & Gimelstob

Not sure if anyone is familiar with this concept of The Tennis Channel so a short summary. Davenport and Gimelstob can each pick up to 2 players of which they want to BUY stocks (= these players will do better next year), stocks they are keeping (=these players will have similar year) and SELL stocks they had bought the years before(=players who will do worse next year).

Davenport buys Clijsters and Serena, sells Li and Wozniacki. She keeps Azarenka.
Gimelstob buys Azarenka and Lisicki, sells Li. Keeps Stosur.

For 2012 predictions, Davenport says Kvitova will become #1 before having to defend her Wimbledon title and will win another slam. (Gimelstob only predicted for the men)

As far as credibility of Davenport's stock report goes...last year: Davenport bought Sharapova's stock because she has nowhere to go but up and sold Schiavone because she wouldn't defend her FO title. Both decisions turned out to be valid.

Thoughts on these predictions?

Should do a buy and sell game with players.

So what happens when a friend or partner holds a different opinion against your favorite?

No, I'm just sharing the POV from someone who knows something about tennis like Davenport. And Justin Gimelstob.

Re: TTC Court Report: Women's Stock Report + 2012 Predictions by Davenport & Gimelsto

I wonder if this game sounds any fun?

Tennis Stocks

During WTA season, prior to the beginning of each week's tournaments, players are allowed to place their $ on player stocks based on the player's ranking points. Players would be allowed to sell or purchase the stocks before the qualifying tournaments begin based on the points the players are at during the week of purchase.

We will use New Zealand Thursday 23:59 as the deadline for purchasing stocks. For week 1 tournaments (Auckland and Brisbane), stock purchases will begin Dec. 26 at 00:01 and end on Dec. 29 at 23:59 New Zealand Time.

Since this is a new tournament, each new player will be allocated with $16. Each stock purchase or sold will create a transaction fee of 10% or $1, rounds to the nearest dollar, whichever is greater. Each player may only perform transaction once (purchase or sell) by posting on the board. When players run out of $ and hold no stock at the end of the season, players will be replenished up to $16 (Maximum 16 tournaments points count for WTA Tour) at the end of the season.

Players may not donate their $ to others.

For week of Jan. 2,

Selling/Purchasing Period: 12/26 00:01 - 12/29 23:59
Selling/Purchasing $ based on: Ranking points of 12/26

For week of Jan. 9,

Selling/Purchasing Period: 01/02 00:01 - 01/05 23:59
Selling/Purchasing $ based on: Ranking points of 01/02

--

Rankings will be based on player's current cash, stock, and cash + stock (it will be based on the official WTA ranking post) on a weekly basis. Players buy-able will be listed each week based on the amount of cash the highest person hold. Players with 0 points are not buy-able.

--

During the weeks of Grand Slams (week 1), players would be allowed to raffle on who will win the tournament. Players who raffle will not be allowed to perform any stock options.

Player chosen...

Code:
Grand Slams (week 1)

Lost in R128 = Amount raffled x 0
Lost in  R64 = Amount raffled x 1
Lost in  R32 = Amount raffled x 2
Lost in  R16 = Amount raffled x 4
Lost in   QF = Amount raffled x 8
Lost in   SF = Amount raffled x 16
Lost in    F = Amount raffled x 32
Winning Tour = Amount raffled x 64
During the week of WTA Tour Championship, Top 8 (or 16) players would be allowed to raffle on who will win the tournament. Players who raffle will not be allowed to perform any stock options.

Code:
WTA Tour Championship

Lost in RR = Amount raffled x 0
Lost in SF = Amount raffled x 1
Lost in  F = Amount raffled x 2
Winning    = Amount raffled x 4

I'd sell Maria, Li and Stosur.

Buy Serena, Petkovic and Kvitova

Keep Azarenka

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Davenport's are definitely the reasonable ones.

I remember she was commentating one Wozniacki match, and the latter threw in a weak ass serve on set point or something, and she was just all incensed. Gasping on air, with "I can't believe she did that".

Davy is an awesome commentator/analyst. She should do some coaching imo.

Re: TTC Court Report: Women's Stock Report + 2012 Predictions by Davenport & Gimelsto

Davs is pretty sharp, no doubt about it.

Let's see. I'd buy Larsson and Cibulkova.

I'd hold Vika and Kvitova.

I'd dump Caro and Li.

I'd rub Lena's bangs for luck.

And because I'm a perv.

Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.

Davenport should be a fortune teller, I can't think on anyone making those predictions last year...

LEGEND. Nicole. Caro. Aga. Sloane. Taylor.

I think I remember that. Wasn't it her match against Wozniak at RG? She went in hard on Wozniacki in that match... said something like "I can't believe we're witnessing the world #170 outplay the world #1"
