I don't get it ... sorry ... am I too late to join?

Can I pick from that list, or are those the players i can't pick?

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

You're not too late to join. That list is the current list of players that you CAN NOT pick since people have already chosen them.

The game works this way:

Based on your surface preferences you are awarded either 103, 102, 101, 100 points.

Your job is to spread these points over three sets. For example: 50 53 0

You then are placed in a draw, where you hope that you have the winning combo that will win the event! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

I sent you a private message yesterday but I think it got erased. I would like to join your tour as Billie Jean King with hard-grass-indoors-clay for surfaces, I have been collecting pictures of her to save you the trouble. I will send you my points again through another private message.

The 70's Virginia Slims Tour:

"You've come a long way Baby"

KING*COURT*EVERT*GOOLAGONG*WADE
CASALS*STOVE*REID*MOROZOVA*DURR
AUSTIN*NAVRATILOVA*BARKER*TURNBULL*FROMHOLTZ
SHRIVER*MANDLIKOVA*JAEGER*RUZICI*JAUSOVEC
HANIKA*BUNGE*RINALDI*TOMANOVA*KIYOMURA
