Hi everyone! :wavey:

And so another season draws to a close, all in all I've been happy with how the season panned out, of course there were perhaps 1 or 2 delays with results as is to be expected :o :tape: but I was pleased that a core group of 16 or so players remained committed throughout the entire season :yeah: :worship: Hopefully all will return and maybe even a few new faces :p As Queen MK said in the YEC thread, it would be nice to see more players get involved, particularly the ones who are actually doing well :o :lol: as the game can only get better with more rivalries and personalities.

To confirm your participation in S8, please post in this thread. Only players who check-in here will be included in the S8 line-up. As usual, you can all change your surface preferences slightly by moving a surface up or down by 1 space, i.e.

S7
Plexi
Clay
Grass
Hard
Indoors

S8
Plexi
Grass +1
Clay -1
Indoors +1
Hard -1

S7 awards will also be given out here in the coming days, we'll find out which lucky winners will walk away with trophies in the following categories :eek: :p

1. Player of the season
2. Tournament of the season
3. Best newcomer
4. Most improved
5. Rivalry of the season
6. The Nathalie Dechy award for excellence in bitchery
7. The Anastasia Myskina award for excellence in underachievement
8. The Maria Kirilenko humanitarian award
9. The Serena Williams award for most likely to be retired by Sydney
10. Best Plexi/Clay/Grass/Hard/Indoors players

Ok, enjoy the holidays everyone, and see you back for S8 on January 7th :wavey:

Since Serena had 4 aces in the last part of the season because that's the only part of the season she played (logical...), I assume she can change her surfaces entirely?

Clay: 2

Hard: 1

Oh and she better win most improved :armed:

Wait, is Serena REALLY trying to go from 4 aces on indoors last season to 0 this season? :sobbing:

I'm afraid you can't do this Serena :p Your indoor points from S7 will stay on your ranking for most of S8 so switching up your surfaces like this isn't fair and would skew your points. Indoors has to be either your 1st or 2nd surface for the new season :p

Clay

Indoor
Grass

Now you can change, but only by moving a surface up or down by 1 place, so your new surfaces could look like this:

Hard
Plexi +
Clay -
Indoor
Grass

Or you can just keep them the same :p

Riots erupt in the streets of Moscow
Outrage pours in after Hantuchova named Player of the Season over Kirilenko

MOSCOW, RUS - The City of Moscow is currently under siege in a state of pure chaos after word got out late Saturday night that Slovakian ATC #1 Daniela Hantuchova was named "Player of the Season" over Fan Favorite and Russian Legend Maria Kirilenko.

http://en.rian.ru/images/17326/74/173267432.jpg

The scene started off with a calm march from Kirilenko fans chanting and shouting their dissaproval over the announcement, which has now escalated to pure, full-blown violence and terror.

http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/01793/moscow-riots_1793891b.jpg

Pundits report that Hantuchova is a worthy victor of this award, having finished the season ranked #1 and winning a Grand Slam in New York, something Kirilenko has failed to do in her career. MK fans, on the other hand, point to her Tour Leading 5 titles (including a YEC white wash of Hantuchova in the final), leading the season's H2H with Hantuchova and greater, consistent success across more surfaces than the Slovak in her favor.

Russian President Vladamir Putin was on hand, calling for Hantuchova to concede the award and vowing to deny her entry into the country for next season's Moscow event.

http://www.kotadekho.com/news/large_Moscow-Riot-police-break-up-anti-Putin-protest-..jpg
Caption: Putin demonstrates how Moscow officials will tell Dani to "Talk to the hand" if she tries to ever enter Russia again.

There was no comment from Kirilenko at press time, who is currently training for S8. More on this story as we get it.
