The 2002 Tennis Poker World Championships!

The Tennis Poker World Championships will take place next December and only the top 16 at the end of the 2002 season will be able to enter the competition and try to win a medal. :bounce:

As we’ll be during the off-season, the values of the tennis players will be given by their average performances throughout the 2002 Tennis Poker 8 legs; you may remember last year’s Christmas Special Exhibition, won by Tim Wilson. :D

So, the race has begun! Let’s see who will be the lucky 16 posters to qualify! ;)

Rightous,
I think you'll be happy to hear you're wrong. :p ;)

AlexSydney,
you were #1 at the end of the 2001 regular season; this is the first edition of the World Championships, so there isn't any defending champion. :)

Polishprodigy,
good luck, I hope you'll sneak in, you've climbed the ranking so quickly in the latest legs that it's not impossible at all. :)

Arn,
it's very likely, I hope all the leg winners will be able to qualify. :)

Doris,
your 7th leg result is very good, so you may be in. :)

Thank you all, good luck! :wavey:

The value for each tennis player will be the plain mathematical average of her scores in the 8 legs of the 2002 season. Legs without a value won’t be considered, and the joker will be counted as an Ace.

Example:

A, J, 8, -,K, -, Q, 7

( 14 + 11 + 8 + 13 + 12 + 7 ) / 6 = 10.833 => 11 => J

Feel free to ask any question if you have any doubt. :)

Thank you, good luck! :wavey:

I will count only the legs where the players have actually competed and got a score:

average = total points / number of legs played

For example, Lindsay Davenport played only in the last three legs, so her total score will be divided by 3 and not by 8.

I hope it's clear, feel free to ask for more if you have any doubt. :)

Sorry, I should have explained it in a better and more detailed way. Of course I do care about the special placement of the seeds: I place #1 at the top and #2 at the bottom of the draw, then I do the =RAND() thing for #3 and #4; after that I repeat the same operation for #5-#8 and for #9-#16, and finally for the unseeded players. :)

It will get lost as most of the packages which are so unlucky to be handled by the Italian post service around Christmas. :o

But you still have fame and glory, isn't it enough?. :D

Congratulations to Paul and Josh!
And many, many thanks to DoctorG for giving his time and hard work to make these Tournaments possible. I am so happy to have won the Silver Medal (is some clerk in a Post Office in Milan wearing my medal right now?) and the glory and fame are quite enough for me, although a box of Perugia chocolates might have been nice. Or a small Gucci handbag. But enough quibbling. Thank you again darling DoctorG. :D :D :kiss: :D
