<font color="#400080" size="5" face="Arial Black">World Male Tennis Association Official Rules and Sign-up Thread</font>

<font color="#000080" size="3" face="Verdana">Hello tennis enthusiasts!!! There are so many games on those message board, but most of them focus only on the women's tennis. Therefore, me and Williams_Rulez decided to create a game with main focus on ATP. I hope you guys sign-up and enjoy!</font>

<font color="#400080" face="Verdana">Tournaments</font><br /><font color="#000080" face="Verdana">We will start the game in December 31st, right at the beginning of the 2002 season. Players can committ to all events of the season</font><font color="#000080" face="Verdana">The schedule is already posted below, but please, do not send your commitments yet.</font>

<font color="#400080" face="Verdana">Scoring <strong>/Bonus points</strong></font><font color="#000080" face="Verdana">

Each player will have 200 points in Grand Slams and 100 points on all other events. A player needs to rank their surfaces in order of their preference. The surfaces are Hardcourt Outdoors, Clay, Grass, and Hardcourt Indoors (Carpet, Taraflex, Greenset, etc.)</font>

<font color="#000080" face="Verdana"><br />First surface - 15 bonus points<br />Second surface - 10 bonus points<br />Third surface - 05 bonus points<br />Fourth surface - no bonus points</font>

<font color="#000080" face="Verdana">Ex: Surface order - Clay, Hard, Grass, Carpet<br />A player, on Grand Slams, will have:<br />Australian Open (Hard outdoors) - 210 points<br />Roland Garros (Clay) - 215 points<br />Wimbledon (Grass) - 205 points<br />US Open - (Hard outdoors) - 210 points

A player, on lower events, will have:<br />Mallorca Open (Clay) - 115 points<br />Ericsson Open (Hard outdoors) - 110 points<br />Queens' Club (Grass) - 105 points<br />Stockholm Open (Hard indoors) - 100 points

Also bonus points for tournament wins:<br />Grand Slam - 3 points<br />Tennis Masters Series - 2 points<br />Other events - 1 point

Remember, the bonus points will count ONLY to the surface of the tournament you won, not for all of them. Runner-up don't earn bonus points.</font><br /><font color="#000080" face="Verdana">Remember, these are only <strong>EXAMPLES</strong>.<br /></font>

<font color="#000080" face="Verdana">Then each player will break their amount of points, 100-130 / 200-230 depending on the surface, over three sets (lower events) or five sets (Grand<br />Slams).</font><br /><font color="#000080" face="Verdana">This is how the scores of matches will be determined </font><br /><font color="#000080" face="Verdana">Let x = the difference in points between you and your opponent </font><br /><font color="#000080" face="Verdana">If x is greater 50, the set is 6-0<br />If x is less than or equal to 50 but greater than 40, the set is 6-1<br />If x is less than or equal to 40 but greater than 30, the set is 6-2<br />If x is less than or equal to 30 but greater than 20, the set is 6-3<br />If x is less than or equal to 20 but less than 15, the set is 6-4<br />If x is less than or equal to 15 but less than or equal to 10, the set is 7-5<br />If x is less than 10, the set goes to a tie break, with the person with more points winning. The score is determined by x. If x=3, then the score is 7-6(4) </font>

<font color="#000080" face="Verdana">A tie break occurs when both players have the exact number of points! Tie breaks are determined by flipping a coin. One player will be assigned heads, the other player will be assigned tails. The first person to reach 7 heads/tails, wins the tie break, or if the tie break goes past 7, whoever wins by two. </font><font color="#000080" size="1" face="Verdana"><em><strong>(thanks Tennisace)</strong></em></font>

<font color="#000080" face="Verdana"><strong>For example:</strong><br /><strong>Player 1</strong><br />Set 1 30 <br />Set 2 40<br />Set 3 30</font><br /><font color="#000080" face="Verdana"><strong>Player 2</strong><br />Set 1 - 50<br />Set 2 - 0<br />Set 3 - 50</font>

<font color="#000080" face="Verdana">Player 2 wins the match 6-4, 2-6, 6-4. Easy, uh?</font>

<font color="#000080" face="Verdana"><strong>How to sign-up: </strong>You must join here and post a reply to this thread with 5 of your fave ATP players. Only one of them will be chosen.

Players eligible to enter the Grand Slams and Tennis Masters Series events must count those events and their best five other results from the International Series events. The Tennis Masters Cup will count as an additional 19th tournament for the eight players who qualify.

Marcelo de los Rios

I was thinking, people always said that Rios was a threat to win the French in the late 90's, but he never did anything on big clay. He won the Lipton on hardcourts and the GS cup indoors, both over Agassi. So I am changing my surface preferances to #1 Hard, #2 Indoors, # Clay and then grass.
