Talking The PAW Index

I will be doing this every three months, hope you enjoy it

First ever PAW No #1: sartrista7

Number of consecutive correct picks Hantuchov made in PAW Miami 2004: Twelve

The only tournament WTAWorld Admins decide to move the PAW Tournament Thread to the PAW forum: It’s 100th tournament – Australian Open 2004

Number of times former manager Simon has played PAW: once

Best ever win-loss PAW ratio in a Grand Slam: aussie_stars (25-1) when he won Wimbledon 2003

The last 4 Grand Slam PAW champs and their rankings at the time:
crazillo (#118), Geoffry (#165), yucky (#128), aussie_stars (#144)

2004 Seeded Finals: Paris (SpikeyAidanm [1] vs sandg [3]), Dubai (petosp [4] vs butch [3])

Number of top 5 finishes alextreiber achieved in his first 6 events of 2004: Four

The Positions climbed by Lee-Waters’ Boy on the final day of Strasbourg 2004: 24th to 1st

The last ever “200-1” PAW matchup: Kleybanova vs Smashnova-Pistolesi, Indian Wells 2004

Most number of overall PAW titles: spencercarlos (7)

The reason why danielrosario didn’t receive any ranking points despite finishing 12th in PAW Indian Wells: He didn’t commit.

Lowest number of scoring points received for one correct PAW match in 2004: PointBlank – Henin-Hardenne over Lukasewicz (1 point)

Number of Germans on tour in 2003: 1, Number in 2004: 5

Player who originated the term “Pawcket:” paellapan

Number of PAW Titles Duleml won within 3 months: Three

PAW13 of K&J fan’s Antwerp triumph: Clijsters over Casanova (for 4 pts)

Number of pts that separated 1st and 2nd place @ Sydney 2003: 32 PAW pts

Reason why Rtael withdrew from Dubai: A Groin Injury that flared up “off-court”

The only player to be banned for a certain period in PAW: cooldudeanzela

Number of players who have officially retired from PAW: 2

Total number of commitments to PAW Wimbledon 2004: 151
Total number of PAW participants in Wimbledon 2003: 66

Number of different PAW League Table Managers in 2004: Nine
Number of different PAW League Table Managers in 2002: None – ie only the one.

Who paellapan dedicated his 2004 Budapest win to: "my Hungarian Coachettes"

Why alextreiber has his own clothing brand: “everyone wants me and I can't decide”

Longest ever playing PAW player: spencercarlos

The only tournament azza “PAWed” against Alicia Molik: Miami 2004 – 1st round: “Parra over Molik”

Who James says is a motivator on the PAW Tour: His Wife

What current World No 1 SpikeyAidanm says describes PAW as: an addictive drug

Who andrew_uk claims he will never PAW for or against: Tina Pisnik

What Nathan27 believes to be some of the various concepts involved in PAW:
1. risk-taking
2. being somewhat knowledgeable of the wta tour - how players are doing / favourite surfaces.

Three things köj-è pioneered in PAW: The idea of a commitment list following the rankings; PAW Country Threads and PAW logos.

What WTA Handicapper would prefer rather than winning PAW Tournaments:
Showing Sportmanship and playing Paw with grace and respect.

Hantuchov’s goals at the start of the 2004 season: “I want to win my 1st title, become a Top 35 player and go to The Championships” He is currently ranked Three, 1st on the race and owns 2 Tier 1 titles.

Why speedster_ was forced to make a late entry into the Fed Cup team for 2004: Because If he didn't play, he wouldn't have been sent to Athens

Why Geoffry’s Acapulco win meant more than his Australian Open crown: Because Acapulco was based on strategy and not luck and that he knew the value of winning a PAW tournament.

This is really fun to read. It is obvious though that with my recent form my wife has her hands full with the motivating.

Thanks, Masha for the applause.

thanks for your comment about German players
we are the future of PAW

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood
