Welcome to Fun WTA Tour :)

Sorry, I lack creativity :o

Anyway, I know there's a lot of games out there right now, and I know that sometimes we get really bored when we lose early in tournaments and we don't have anything to look forward to, so here's another game!

This game is exactly the same as all the others.

Rules: You split the numbers 1-13 in each set, for 3 sets. In the event of a tie, there will be a coin toss to decide who gets the game. :) Simple? Great, because it's easier for you guys and for me to run!

Tournaments will be every week, including Grand Slams!

For doubles, if you guys fail to make teams, I will randomly pair you with another player. Also, there will be no quality points in doubles rankings :sad:

If your doubles partner forgets to turn in points, I will use the ones from the week before, HOWEVER, I will not do the same for singles, this only applies to doubles!

Articles are encouraged, but no bonus points will be given.

So pick one player, and we'll get the game started!

So can't you just use Set1=13 Set2=13 Set3=13 :confused:

No, you cannot. Examples below:
Set 1: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13
Set 2: 13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1
Set 3: 7-6-5-4-3-2-1-8-9-10-11-12-13

Kind of like LTT. But better ;)

:wavey: This is in no way an attempt to uproot LTT :p Like I said in the very beginning, this is just yet another game so that people have another outlet for fun. Sometimes people lose really early, and then they have to wait another week. This game is just another game for peopel to ahve fun ;) I love LTT so much that it's inspired me to make one of my own ;) You can join if you'd like!!
