THE 2004 TENNIS POKER OLYMPIC GAMES!

In this thread you'll find everything about this season's most important event: the Tennis Poker Olympic Games!

35 posters and 14 doubles pairs have committed. In each leg we'll play only one round: the singles event will start in the 2nd leg, while we'll wait till the 3rd for the doubles. I'll post the complete schedule in the next few minutes.

The quest for the Olympic title has started!

Seeds will be decided according to the ranking as of January 1st. Each doubles player will receive a half of the points earned last season.

In the singles, top 28 will enter the main draw directly, while the remaining 7 posters will fight in the qualifying round during the 2nd leg.

In the doubles, all the 14 pairs will play in the main draw, and the top 2 seeds will get a first round bye. I've added a qualifying round in the 3rd leg which will be used to fill in the seeding list. I'll give all the details later.

Main draws will be made with the fixed place system: 1 vs 4, 2 vs 3 in the semis, 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7... in the quarters, 1 vs 16, 2 vs 15... in the last 16, and so on. I think it's the best solution considering the draw will affect the entire season, round by round, leg by leg.

Thank you, good luck!

Main draw action will start in leg #3. I'm compiling the second leg results, which will decide only the qualifying round outcome.

Thank you, good luck!

The third leg results will be used to break ties in the doubles seeding list, but with no elimination: all the pairs will have a spot in the main draw, whose matches will be played from the 4th leg on.

Thank you, good luck!
