Talking Tennis Poker 3rd anniversary!

The first Tennis Poker tournament was played right after the 1999 US Open.

I would like to thank all the posters who have supported the game through these three years, and especially those of you who have been here since the beginning, who follow the game closely and who don't miss a chance to post a few words of appreciation.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TENNIS POKER!

Happy b-day Tennis Poker.

It's my first year I've entered (and I only entered because my Belgian teammates needed someone to complete their team ), but I love this game!! Great concept!

Thanks Doc

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Happy Anniversary Tennis Poker, and thank you Doc for all the work and effort you put into this year in year out!

The Crow, AlexSydney, Carot, Rocketta,
thank you all!

Indeed in 2001 AlexSydney was #1 and won the team event too.

Many posters have conquered the top spot in these 3 years, I'll make a brief research through the old files to find the complete list.

Thank you, and good luck for the upcoming tournaments!

But check the results of the 6th leg in the next few days, there's a very sweet surprise for you.

Well, it has been a little bit difficult to make the #1s list, as the ranking system has changed a few times through the years, but I've found the complete entry list of the very first Tennis Poker tournaments:

ASV fan
Second Serve
Ayla
SarahH
Robert Zanotti
Luis Gonzalez
HingisRules
Stuee
Azer
TennFreak2000
Dechyfan
Jannak
LNJTwist
Keith
Splat
Jonnyp
Fingon
Hingis4ever
James
Jamie Saengsawang2
Lawhinlun
AnnaTheNo1ForMe
MartiHingisFan
Doris Loeffel
Im410s
Jakeev

26 posters, a bunch of them still around.

In 1999 and 2000 Dechyfan, Stuee, Brian Stewart, Jelena4me and Tennis124 were #1 in a ranking which considered only the best of the last three performances.

Second Serve, Jelena4me, Rightous and AlexSydney became #1 at some stage during the 2001 season, with a 52 weeks ranking system.

In this season Paul, Arne, Tim Wilson and Ayla have reached the top spot.

well done domenico!

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

In 2000 we had the first Tennis Poker Team Event, named 7WL (“ The Seven Wonders League” ). Marti’s Party (MartiHingisFan, HingisRules, Brunof, Hingis1, Hingisrulz) and Team Chanda (Sub, Ayla, Griffin, Tia Clara) battled throughout the whole season, with the first one eventually prevailing.

From the following year on, the team performances have been based on the average of the singles results. The Seles Fans (Alx, MonicaTheBest, DannyLovesMonica) took an early lead but The Three Aussies (DokicFan, Martinafan, AlexSydney) dominated most of the season.

The Ab Fab Ladies (Tia Clara / Ayla / Sub / Griffin / Moon) are currently in control of the 2002 Team Event, after they have replaced at the top the peachpuff team (KC / Paul / Kris / Tennisace / Adrian) and the lime team (Valda / Tim / Doris / Sofiane / Brian & Luis).
