I thought it would have been a good idea to have a brief reminder of how a score is assigned to the tennis player according to her tournament performance: round by round I will explain in detail what I do to determine the card values.

59 different players are involved in the Tennis Poker first leg.

6 of them are not playing the Australian Open, so they don’t get any score:

<font color=tomato><b>-: Davenport, Dokic, Petrova, Rubin, S.Williams, Zuluaga</b></font>

21 players have already lost in the 1st round. This is quite simple: <b><font color=lime>first round losers always score a 2</font></b>:

<font color=tomato><b>2: Kruger, Molik, Stevenson, Bovina, Montolio, Likhovtseva, McQuillan, Nola, Sanchez-Vicario, Suarez, Kournikova, Krasnoroutskaya, Leon-Garcia, Torrens-Valero, Nagyova, Ruano-Pascual, Schnyder, Kapros, Testud, Mikaelian, Pierce. </b></font>

32 players reached the 2nd round. In Grand Slam events, a second round is worth a value of 3 or 4, according to the position in the draw. We will see what happens in Melbourne in the next two days.

Players who lose in the second round get a value of 3 or 4 according to their draw position.

General rule: considering two tennis players who were beaten in the same round, <b><font color=lime>the player who lost in the draw section of a higher seed gets a higher value.</font></b> It’s the position which matters; not the seed herself, who may have already lost or may be just the player we’re giving the value.

In GS events (and all the events with draws of 128):
4 is the value which is given for the seeds #1 - #16 draw sections.
3 is the value which is given for the seeds #17 - #32 draw sections.

Let’s see what happened at the Australian Open.

2nd round losers:
Meilen Tu, Tatiana Panova, Barbara Schwartz, Iva Majoli, Conchita Martinez, Anne Kremer, Daja Bedanova and Bianka Lamade.

Tu was beaten by Jennifer Capriati, the first seed => 4: Tu

Panova was the 29th seed => 3: Panova

Schwartz lost to #4 seed Kim Clijsters => 4: Schwartz

Majoli beat Sanchez-Vicario in the first round and Arantxa was the 14th seed => 4: Majoli

Conchita beat in the frst round Lina K, who replaced Serena Williams, seeded #6 => 4: Martinez

Kremer herself was the 28th seed => 3: Kremer

Bedanova herself was the 21st seed => 3: Bedanova

Lamade lost to Dechy, who beat Sandrine Testud, the 9th seed => 4: Lamade

Australian Open values:
<b><font color=tomato>
4: Tu, Schwartz, Majoli, Martinez, Lamade
3: Panova, Kremer, Bedanova
</font></b>
In the third round we’re left with 24 of your players: everyone in the last 32 but Watson, Husarova, Pratt, Carlsson, Sucha, Adr Serra-Zanetti, Rittner and Medina-Garrigues. A value of 5 is guaranteed, but they may score a 6 if they are in the draw section of a high seed. We’ll see everything in detail in two days time.

With smaller tournaments, the basic principle remains the same.

Draws of 64:
4 is the value which is given for the seeds #1 - #8 draw sections.
3 is the value which is given for the seeds #9 - #16 draw sections.

Draws of 32:
6 is the value which is given for the seeds #1 - #2 draw sections.
5 is the value which is given for the seeds #3 - #4 draw sections.
4 is the value which is given for the seeds #5 - #6 draw sections.
3 is the value which is given for the seeds #7 - #8 draw sections.

Example.

Sydney main draw included 32 tennis players (with 4 first round byes).

Seeds:
1 - Capriati
2 - Hingis
3 - Clijsters
4 - Serena Williams
5 - Henin
6 - Mauresmo
7 - Testud
8 - Shaughnessy

2nd round losers:
Capriati, the first seed herself => 6
Hantuchova lost to Shaughnessy (8) => 3
Kournikova lost Serena Williams (4) => 5
Coetzer lost to Mauresmo (6) => 4
Martinez lost to Henin (5) => 4
Farina-Elia lost to Clijsters (3) => 5
Nagyova lost to Testud (7) => 3
Raymond lost to Hingis (2) => 6
<b>
6: Capriati, Raymond
5: Farina-Elia, Kournikova
4: Martinez, Coetzer
3: Nagyova, Hantuchova

Exactly a half of those 24 players have lost in the 3rd round and score a value of:

6, if they are in the draw sections of seeds #1 - #8
5, if they are in the draw sections of seeds #9 - #16

3rd round losers:
Daniilidou, Tulyaganova, Shaughnessy, Tanasugarn, Sugiyama, Serna, Farina-Elia, Schett, Schiavone, Dechy, Raymond, Hantuchova.

Let’s see the results from another perspective, starting from the seeds and not from the players.

You included in your combinations 12 out of the last 16 players. Husarova, Sucha, Adr Serra-Zanetti and Medina-Garrigues were the other four.

In a Grand Slam event a 4th round makes players score:

8, if they are in the draw sections of seeds #1 - #4
7, if they are in the draw sections of seeds #5 - #8

In Grand Slam events, the players who lose in the quarterfinals are given a value of:
10, if they are in the draw quarters of seeds #1 - #2
9, if they are in the draw quarters of seeds #3 - #4

<b><font color=lime>The scores for the four semifinalists are always the same</font></b>, no matter what the tournament tier or the draw size is:
J: Bottom half Semifinalist
Q: Top half Semifinalist
K: Runner-up
A: Winner

So, the most important values should be quite easy to spot.

You picked all the 8 Australian Open quarterfinalists except Adriana Serra-Zanetti.

<b><font color=dodgerblue>Martina Hingis, Venus Williams</font></b> had already won a title. No matter what their Australian Open final outcome is, they will score an Ace at the end of the first leg.

This leaves us with 5 players.

<b><font color=dodgerblue>Jennifer Capriati, Amelie Mauresmo</font></b>
In Sydney, 7 for Amelie (quarterfinalist) and 6 for Jennifer (second round loser). They’re facing each other in the #1 seed draw quarter, and the one who lose will score a 10. If the winner of this clash loses in the semis, she will score a Q.

<b><font color=dodgerblue>Kim Clijsters</font></b>
A J for her semifinal in Sydney, a Q for a possible semifinal at the Australian Open.

<b><font color=dodgerblue>Justine Henin</font></b>
Justine was the Gold Coast runner-up, so she has already scored a K and she can better her value only winning the tournament.

<b><font color=dodgerblue>Monica Seles</font></b>
No warm up events for Monica, the Australian Open value will be her first score. A loss in the quarters against the #2 seed Venus Williams would be worth a 10. If she’s defeated in the semis she will get a J.
