Hi

I'm starting a new game called Guess the Ultimate Loser. I am expecting to get a forum soon, but I will go ahead and give you the rules.

__________________________________________________ ____________________________________

Most of you know what an Ultimate Loser is, right? An Ultimate Loser is a player that loses first round of an event, the player that they lose to then goes on to lose in the 2nd Round. The player that defeated thefirst opponent goes on to lose the next round and so on.

Example:

Marlene Weingartner def. Anca Barna
Anna-Lena Groenefeld def. Marlene Weingartner
Justine Henin-Hardenne def. Anna-Lena Groenefeld
Kim Clijsters def. Justine Henin-Hardenne
Lindsay Davenport def. Kim Clijsters

The Ultimate Loser would be Anca Barna.

Understand? Hopefully .

__________________________________________________ ____________________________________

If you choose the correct Ultimate Loser, you will get a certain amount of points. There is a points system and a ranking that will be given after each tournament(s) for each week. The higher the Tier, the more points.

Point System:

Grand Slam- 200
Tier 1- 100
Tier 2- 50
Tier 3- 25
Tier 4- 12.5
Tier 5- 6.5

( YEC will not have an Ultimate Loser because of round robin format ).

If there are 2 tournaments in the same week, please pick an Ultimate Loser for both Tournaments.

__________________________________________________ _______________________________________

Telling me your selected players:

You will PM me telling me your selected players for a certain week. You can choose 2 players for each tournament, because for some, theis game could be difficult :retard:.

I will then post everyone's selected players. I might do doubles if this season makes it to Season Two.

Late Entry's:

A late entry is considered if you don't post your selected players before the first round. You have to give Late Entry players before the end of the second round. If you then select the correct Ultimate Loser, you will only get half the points.

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________

Bonus Points:

You might want to keep up with how many points you collect during the season. If I ever make an error and you notice it, you will be awarded 10 bonus points on yuor ranking. If you try and trick me by saying there was an error, but there was not an error, you will be fined 10 points.

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________

My Hope for the game:

I hope this game can work! As far as I know, there can be only one Ultimate Loser at a Tournament. If I am misinformed, please PM me now!

Thanks, I hope you will sign up and HAVE FUN!

no, no, no, i mean can we pick a player to BE. Like for rankings and when you post our picks it could say:
Lindsay Davenport
UL: Anca Barna.

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.
I used to update this signature, once in a while...
...then I realized no one actually reads it.

It is very funny!!!
I´m playing!

I suggest you to make a thread in each tournament forum, like PAW, CAD, etc (perhaps you´ve already did it).



Eleni Daniilidou - Iveta Benesova - Melanie Klaffner - Gisela Dulko - Daniela Hantuchova - Jelena Dokic - Karolina Sprem -

Akenatón rules, Horemheb sucks

my subforum is found near the bottom of the games subforums.

there is a section of WTAworld.com named Current Tournaments. There is always a copy of the draw there. I will make a link for each tournament. Good question. Fell free to ask me anymore.

Most of the time the draw is released on a Saturday or Sunday sometimes. Just send me your selected players on one of those days.

The link to the subforum is also in my signature
