View Full Version : BAP new game starting in 2006

Nov 7th, 2005, 09:28 PM
Hi everyone

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a game that will start at the beginning of next season, 2006, where you enter tournaments and you are a player in that tournament. After the tournament you get the ranking points that that player earned for the tournament and those points would be on your ranking. You would change players every tournament and you pick which ones you wouls want to be in.
Here is an example of how it would work.

Say Person A ends up being Ana Ivanovic for a tournament and say it is a Tier 2. If Ana would end up making the semifinals, then Person A would receive 88 points aaded onto their ranking

I am not sure how people will end up getting the players or if people will choose multiple players and whoever has the most points after a tournament from their player, gets higher ranking points.
Here is an example of how I think people might get their players for a tournament.

Say there is a 16 person tournament and your ranking allows you a direct entrance into the main draw. Say the draw looks like this.

(1) Davenport vs Benesova
Golovin vs Safina
Qualifier vs WC Kraijcek
Linetskaya vs (4) Vaidisova
(3) Dementieva vs Pennetta
Kirilenko vs Koukalova
Qualifier vs WC Schruff
Chakvetadze vs (2) Mauresmo

Each person who got a direct entrance would put the 14 players who are in the draw (not including qualifiers) in order from the ones they want to be most.

Say only 1 player chose Kirilenko as their #1 pick, then they get Kirilenko for the tournament.

Say Person 1 was the only one to choose Kirilenko as #1
Person 2 was the only one to choose Chakvetadze as #1
P. 3 was the only one to choose Koukalova as #1
P. 4 was the only to choose Pennetta as #1
and P. 5 was the only on to choose Golovin as #1

Those 5 people are now taken. Say Person 6, 7, and 8 all chose Davenport as #1. Then I will RANDOMLY choose in some way who gets the player. I will go down players lists as people get eliminated from being eligible players left to pick.

Once all players are chosen then the tournament is ready. If there are more people entered than draw spaces then there will be qualifying and they will hope their qualifying player gets entered.

These may not be the final rules but these most likely will be.

Please post if you would be interested in playing!

You are not the same player for every tournament. You pick which tournaments you want to be in from the WTA Schedule and you are players playing in the tournament your in.

Is anybody really confused????

Guys, this is like the WTA Tour's Fantasy Game that they have at wtatour.com. The only difference is, you don't make a TEAM, you choose ONE PLAYER each week to represent you in the tournament.

Right Tennace? :)

Yep except you can only 1 person can have 1 player, so there will be some sort of process to figure out who gets who
