RTP-Trial Bali

RTP


Back in Amelia Island I♥Lindsay started this game, and I am going to try and restart it here as a trial and then with luck it will be able to continue

It's rather simple really, but it can't start until the main draw comes out, and normally you can't pick until qualifiers are placed.

Rules: In a normal WTA bracket, there are 28 players w/ 4 byes. Basically, what you have to do is take all 28 players and rank them, 1-28. Now, you have to be careful on how you rank them because you get points for who wins and the rank you gave them.
THE LEAST AMOUNT OF POINTS WINS!
The points you recieve will be equal to the number you ranked the player. lol, wow, that sounds confusing, but it's basically this:

Let's say that it is a 16 player draw, just to save time. I would take all 16 players and rank them 1-16, with 1 the best and 16 the worst (this is a made up draw, so it may be a little strange):

1. Maria Sharapova
2. Lindsay Davenport
3. Martina Hingis
4. Svetlana Kuznetsova
5. Nadia Petrova
6. Patty Schnyder
7. Sania Mirza
8. Nicole Vaidisova
9. Francesca Schiavone
10. Lucie Safarova
11. Lisa Raymond
12. Camille Pin
13. Shinobu Asagoe
14. Mashona WAshington
15. Virginie Razzano
16. Roberta Vinci

Now, as these players win, i get points. Remember, your goal is to have the least number of points, and that's why you put your players who you know will win at #1, so that you get very few points for them. So, let's say for example, these were the results:

Maria Sharapova d. Virginie Razzano
Roberta Vinci d. Svetlana Kuznetsova
Lindsay Davenport d. Mashona Washington
Patty Schnyder d. Camille Pin
Martina Hingis d. Shinobu Asagoe
Lisa Raymond d. Nadia Petrova
Sania Mirza d. Lucie Safarova
Nicole Vaidisova d. Francesca Schiavone

Now, if you add up all my points i got from round 1, my total euqals 54 (1 for sharapova, 2 for davenport, 3 for hingis, 6 for schnyder, 7 for mirza, 8 for vaidisova, 11 for raymond, and 16 for vinci).


You will make the rankings before the start of the tournament and you will keep THE SAME RANKINGS FOR THE WHOLE TOURNAMENT! At the end, the player with the LEAST points is the winner.

if you have any questions just ask!

Feel free to make your picks as soon as the draw comes out, even if I have not posted it. I will try to do it as fast as possible but I won't always be able to in a timely fashion.

Important: If I haven't posted the draw and you need to make you picks before the qualifiers are placed assume that the (Q) that is most towards the top of the draw will be Qualifier 1. and then you would rank them like that.

Ex. US OPEN, if you had done it pre-qualifiers placed you may have picked 45. (Q1) Later Barrois would have been the person you picked.


If you need to see example or want to look at the original here is the link: http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=229721


Bali will be run as a trial, if their is interest and all runs well then it will continue to run.

This is the only tournament where it would be nice for you to commit ahead of time so I have an idea of how many players there will be. But you will still be able to play if you don't commit.

Thank You for signing up!

Placements of Qualifiers and Replacements of Camerin/Sfar

Q1 = Silfany
Q2 = Gumulya
Q3 = Musgrave
Q4 = Klepac

(even though Silfany is a LL she takes the position in the draw of Q1 and is therefore Q1)

Sfar ----> Tananta (Tananta took her spot in the draw)
Camerin ----->Damayanti (takes Nakamura's spot who took Camerin's and therefore is the replacement of Camerin)
