Women's Tennis Tour Circut
HOW TO PLAY:Just like in WTA, you will play in tournaments, compete against other players and earn a ranking.
How do you win matches??? …
Before every tournament you play in, you will send me a sequence of numbers via PM. You will send me a series of 3 sets each with 13 numbers.
Example of a set:…4-10-0-1-2-3-5-7-11-6-0-12-5
You will “battle” against your opponent’s numbers. Every number in a set represents one game. The rule: the bigger number wins.
Player A’s first set: 0-4-7-8
Player B’s first set: 2-2-5-9
Game 1:…0 < 2...player B wins the first game and leads 1-0
Game 2:…4 > 2...player A wins the second game and ties it 1-1
Game 3:…7 > 5...player A wins the third game and leads 2-1
Game 4:…8 < 9...player B wins the fourth game and ties it 2-2
This process is continued until someone wins the set and eventually the match in best of 3, the same scoring as tennis. If both players have the same number, the next number is used and will count as two games, and if the next numbers are also equal, the following number is used and will count for 3 games, etc. If the 13th game shares the same number, the tiebreaker will be decided in a coin toss.
How much can we put in each set??? …
The sum of the 13 numbers in each set depends on what surface you are playing on. You are given 290 surface pts which you must split up into the four surfaces we play on, hardcourt, clay, grass, and indoors. You cannot give a surface more than 80 pts and no lower than 60 pts.
Ex: Player X’s surface points
Hardcourt - 75
Clay - 80
Grass - 70
Indoors - 65
Player X plays Wimbledon on grass. The sum of each set he sends must add up to 70 pts.
How does doubles work? …
I simply add your numbers together or you may send in separate numbers for doubles
Is that it? …
-There is no limit on how much you can play.
- Fed Cup doesn’t count as a tournament, it equivalent to a week off.
4 Tournament Penalty:
This applies for the second time you play 4 tournaments in a row…on your fourth straight tournament in 4 consecutive weeks, you will be deducted 10 points from each set…on your fifth straight tournament in 5 straight weeks, you will be deducted 20 points from each set…to eliminate these penalties you have to take one week off. Remember you can do this once, but the second time it will be applied.
Tier 3’s count for half a tournament so playing two tier 3’s consecutively would count as 1 tournament in terms of the 4 tournament penalty
- This year you may send in separate numbers for doubles otherwise I will just combine both partners’ numbers.
- Please have a doubles partner arranged before the tournament begins.
- I suggest you find a long term doubles partner it will make things easier for you and especially me.
To qualify for the Olympics you must have competed in at least one round of Fed Cup.
Number of singles players per country: Draw of 32 or Draw of 16
top 3 players in the Countries will make it
- Top 8 players without direct-entry, 2 rounds of qualies.
Number of doubles teams per country:
**Doubles teams must be from the same country, except for the two World Teams.
