Welcome to FWTT (Fantasy Women's Tennis Tour)

History
FWTT, or the Fantasy Women's Tennis Tour, was born on April 10th, 2000. The first tournament ever held was Hilton Head, which was only a singles tournament. Doubles were introduced the next week in Hamburg.

General Rules
1- Create a Fantasy Player with the following information:
(text in Italics are examples)

Name: Mary Davies
Birthdate: May 30th 1984 (You must be 16 Years Old if you are totally new to FWTT)
Nationality: French
Best Surfaces: Hard, Clay, Carpet, Grass (You must select your order with only those 4 surfaces)

For what are those surfaces?
Those surfaces mean how many points you will be able to use when you play. For your first surface (in this example hard) you will get 103 points, then 102 for clay, 101 for carpet and 100 for grass.

How we get a score?
You need to divide this points between 3 sets. Example:

You
1st Set: 50 points
2nd Set: 50 points
3rd Set: 03 points

1st Set: 40
2nd Set: 60
3rd Set: 0

In this case you would win the match 7-6(7-0) 6-7(0-7) 7-6(7-3)

In some cases this scores will be changed for making the game more reliable. Example 6-4 4-6 6-4

But how you got the score?

Here are the tables:

Scoring By Difference of Points
60 or more = 6-0
50 to 59 = 6-1
40 to 49 = 6-2
30 to 39 = 6-3
20 to 29 = 6-4
10 to 16 = 7-5
00 to 09 = 7-6

Tie-Break
00 = 12-10 or 11-9
01 = 10-8
02 = 9-7
03 = 8-6
04 = 7-5
05 = 7-4
06 = 7-3
07 = 7-2
08 = 7-1
09 = 7-0

If points are tied (example 50 & 50) then the one that has the surface were the event is played in a higher possition gets the set, if also in that are tied then the higher ranked.

Ok , ok but to who I send this things?
All players must start in the juniors. So you would have to send your profile to Paul_Masterton who is the one who runs the FWTT Jrs. For entering the tournaments you must sign in the tournament signing threads, you can find them in the different forums of the Message Board. You will send points to him as the way he specifies (E-mail or Private Message) and with a deadline that he will also specify.

How do I turn a pro player?
In Roland Garros and in the Chase Championships, some players (Who dont have a pro player already) are choosed to play the pro's because of their good results and ranking. Anyways you can still play some pro events if your results are good enough earlier.

If you have any questions or suggestions please post them here so I can add them ;) Thanx

BUMP for Paul to see.

As for doubles, the 2 players that play doubles are like this:

Jane Doe and Allison Smith play doubles on clay.

Jane Doe has 104 points on Clay.

Allison Smith has 106 points on Clay.

So, we take points 104 + 106 = 210

210 divided by 2 = 105

Thus, as a team you have 105 points on clay.

Hope this helps! :)

Hi Angelique-fans

I am Jane Wong, Ruffy introduce to you already, welcome to FWTT

the next thing you need to do now is to find the thread named 'FWTT junior commitment' and then in there, there will be a no. of tournaments on offer. What you need to do is to reply on that thread and say which tournament to you want to play.

Every start of the week, you need to send your points to the person in charge.

In junior, you need to send your points via PM to Paul_MAsterton

Nice to see anoher addition of asian player

Hi

for doubles, first you need to find a partner and then you can discuss strategy witht hat person, doubles work just like singles, I will give you an example

Player A pair with Player B and they are playign against Player C and Player D

Player A has points of 0 50 50
Player B has points of 50 54 2

The team will have a point toal of 50 104 52

Player C has points of 15 15 70
Player D has points of 15 70 15

This team will have points of 30 85 85

There for you can see that Player C and Player D win the match by two set to love

Hope you know how to play now and wish you every success

im sorry but this sounds a little confusing... are we supposed to divide by 2 or not?

thx for the help :wavey:

Hi MIss Penguin

You can divide the points by two if you want but the result will be the same apart from the scoreline

So you are right but i am just trying to simplify things

It looks very confusing:confused: , but, I suppose I'd better put in for it otherwise I'll regret it later.

NAME: Alexandria Carriacou
DoB: November 28th 1986
SURFACE: Hard, Clay, Grass, Carpet

I'm pretty sure I've sussed out how the points are done, but no doubt I'll forget to PM the guy who runs it to tell him what tournaments I'll do and what points I have.

Please could some-one who's done this for a while (and who knows what they're doing:rolleyes: ) PM me or something to let me know I've done that right/wrong.

Hi, I am Bryanne Applegate of USA and I am #12 in the world :) Jane, you made them confusing! Actually, Player A and B win the match in straight sets! :p

I dunno what on my mind when I write those, yes, player A and B will win by two games to love, I hope I am not scaring newcomers away :P

I have a question, My player Maguela Frageeva won a low tier event this week, does that mean I get extra points for the surface I won the event on???( 3 more to my total??)
Any help would be appreciated:D
thanks I am enjoying this game very much:D

martinafan
Jul 14th, 2002, 03:02 PM
Hey Maguela! :) :)

Here are the bonus points....

SINGLES BONUS POINTS SYSTEM:
Winning Grand Slam: 7 points
Winning Tier I: 5 points
Winning Tier II: 4 points
Winning Tier III: 3 points
Winning Tier IV: 2 points
Winning Challenger: 1 point
Won Grand Slam: 1 point for ever
Note: All points earnt are for the surface that the tournament was on.

For example, Marteena had 106 pts on hard at the beginning of this year. After winning Gold Coast (a tier 3), she then has 109 points on hard courts, but only hardcourts - her pts on other surfaces stay the same!

DOUBLES BONUS POINTS SYSTEM:
Winning Grand Slam: 3 points per player
Winning Tier I/II: 2 points per player
Winning Tier III/IV: 1 point per player
Winning Challenger: 0.5 points per player
Won Grand Slam: 1 point per player for ever
Note: All points earnt are for the surface that the tournament was on.

I hope that helps you! :) :) :) :) If not, then please ask me anything again! :) :)

P.S - the points go back to original at the start of every year...so winning some tournaments (eg.Wimbledon!) don't help that much, cause u can't use ur bonus pts anywhere else ;) ;) LOL

Penguin, and all those who may have been confused by the doubles.....

There are 2 ways to send points for the doubles.

Number 1: You can average out your points and your partners to find a total for the team, and then send seperate doubles points for your team. This is what Ruflina (aka VSFan1) was saying earlier.

Way #2: If you do not send any doubles points in for the team, then alx will use the singles points that the both of u sent in, and average them out to work out the doubles points you are using. THis is what Jane (aka wongqks) was saying earlier.

For example, team 1 is comprised of Player A and Player B. Player A has 104 pts and Player B has 106 pts on a particular surface. Their average pts are 105, and this is what they use for doubles. They talk to each other about what points to use, and decide on 52-2-51.

They are playing against Player C and Player D. They did not send in doubles points as a team. Player C used 64-6-34 in singles, and Player D used 5-51-50. Alx would then average out these points, which comes to:

set 1 = (64 + 5) / 2 = 34.5
set 2 = (6 + 51) / 2 = 28.5
set 3 = (34 + 50) / 2 = 42

So, Team X (player A+B) uses 52-2-51
Team Y (player C+D) uses 34.5-28.5-42

So, Team X would win by two sets to one.

I hope that made sense. Please tell me if it didn't. Thanks! :)

Jul 14th, 2002, 03:10 PM
So I got this straight, for Marteena in your case you would have 109 points on hard courts in singles , but you would have 106 points in doubles, is that correct?
thanks again:D

martinafan
Jul 14th, 2002, 03:14 PM
Yes, that is correct....singles success does not change your doubles points! But, I do have more than 106 pts in doubles on hard, because i have won some titles on it this year.....but you have the theory correct! :)

That is why we started a seperate doubles points system, because we thought it was unfair that those who had singles success could then use the points to win more doubles titles!!!

Jul 14th, 2002, 03:17 PM
thanks again Marteena, it was very kind of you to answer especially so quickly, good luck to your player in the upcoming weeks:D

marteena could you help me, i never know what points i have. i always send in the regular. could you let me know how many single nd doubles point i have on hardcourts? i have 106 in singles i thinnk

martinafan
Jul 15th, 2002, 01:06 AM
Well, Tiffani....do you know what tournaments you have won this year on hardcourts in either singles or doubles????

Tennis124
Jul 15th, 2002, 02:04 AM
Yes, I won Miami in singles and scottsdale in doubles. and hardcourt is my second favorite surface

martinafan
Jul 15th, 2002, 02:11 AM
Well, Miami is a tier 1, so you receive 5 extra points for that...and if hard is your 2nd surface, then that means you had 104. So you have 109 on hard in singles.

Scottsdale is a tier 2, so you have 2 bonus points for that....giving you 106 points on hard for doubles.

Hope you understand, and that made sense.....

polishprodigy
Jul 15th, 2002, 02:20 AM
Oh no! I thought winning a tier 4 gave u 1 extra point, so Gianna Adrianna Dulko has been jipping herself out of a point! :eek: :sad:

Tennis124
Jul 20th, 2002, 04:17 AM
thanks marteena, i always get messed up with what tiers go with what. and then the points drop at the end of the year right? so i never bother to add it in!

NOTE for new players: paul_masterton no longer runs the juniors....RUS_4_EVER does, so you need to send him points and everything

Tiffani, sorry about the very late reply, but san diego is a tier 2.
