Great Job KoOlMaNsTeVeN jumping 13 spots to #51 after an awesome showing in Paris!! It's only a matter of time before you crack the top 50!

Congrats canuckfan on climbing up one spot to Canada's #4!

Also good showings in Paris by Canuck_Fan and _shorty_!

Keep up the good work guys!

In no time, we'll all be in the top 50!

I think we have great potential for a really good FED CUP team.
Our two veterans (polishprodigy and KoOlMaNsTeVeN) are doing great.
We have a good Canadian rankings race with many of us ranked in the 70s and 80s. That's pretty good considering most of us have played less than 10 tournaments.

Because of steady results there have been no Canadian ranking switches in the 52-week ranking system.
In the Race to Championships however, where the rankings are never steady at the beginning of the year, Nathan27 has become Canada's new #1 while polishprodigy has overtaken KoOlMaNsTeVeN as Canada's #3.

:cool: Getting to know KoOlMaNsTeVeN :cool:

Relaxed and ready to rumble

http://minkle.phenominet.com/emo/images/lines/19.gifhttp://minkle.phenominet.com/emo/images/lines/19.gif

Country: Canada
Current Rank: 49
Current Race Rank: 50

Speaking about setting impressions on their debut tournaments, KoOlMaNsTeVeN did just that in Antwerp 2002, in only his 2nd tournament, the punky Canadian claimed the title with an amazing 31 point lead of 2nd placed saki, whilst this was an astounding result, Canada’s 2nd highest ranked player has not won a title since. He attributes this to a lack of focus in his game. In fact the Canadian has undergone several username changes, but all seems to be settled now.

This year in Paris, KoOlMaNsTeVeN finished a classy 3rd which would elevate his race rank into the top 50. He is hoping to return to the top 20, a destination suited for this fine and talented athlete. We caught up with Steven in a Local Pub in Doha.


Q. How did you get involved in PAW?

KoOlMaNsTeVeN: Well I started it when it first came out. I loved the idea of picking winners for matches since it is something i was thinking about before.

Q. You won Antwerp in 2002, but have not won a title since, however you finished 3rd in Paris OGF recently, do you think you are returning to form and maybe coming an elite top 20 player again?

KoOlMaNsTeVeN: If I play more I think I can. The main key for me is to see past matches etc.. I really need in the upcoming weeks to focus on the game. Plus I hope I can come back to the top 20.

Q. Are you friends with the Canadians, there is a whole group of them doing well, are you good friends with them?

KoOlMaNsTeVeN: I’m good friends with Paul (Polishprodigy). The others are quite new so I haven’t been able to get to know them.

Q. What surface do you adapt to the most?

KoOlMaNsTeVeN: Hmm. I would have to say hard. Because I can concentrate on my game more in the summer.

Q. You play a variety of games on the board, what makes PAW different?

KoOlMaNsTeVeN: As i said BEFORE its head to head match-ups and ALSO it’s based on actual WTA Matches which is very special.

Q. Do you have any role models, you look up to, on tour?

KoOlMaNsTeVeN: which tour?

Q. The Paw Tour, sir.

KoOlMaNsTeVeN: Nope. Im really my own individual and I don’t look around at anyone else to look up to.

Q. Tell us five words to describe yourself?

KoOlMaNsTeVeN: punkish, nice, demanding, selfish, sweet … a mix of things

Q. How long do you see yourself playing PAW, and how do you think the game is going?

KoOlMaNsTeVeN: I see myself playing for a very long time. I really do think that PAW needs to promote itself more and MAYBE make it a bit more interesting.

Q. What do you mean by “more interesting,” do you have any ideas?

KoOlMaNsTeVeN: Hmm.. I think the game should inform the players more about head to heads etc..

Q. But don’t you think that’s the player’s responsibility to do that?

KoOlMaNsTeVeN: i guess so

Q. KoOlMaNsTeVeN:, we appreciate your time, thank you.

KoOlMaNsTeVeN: Thanks soo much!

Excellent Interview!! :)

The Young and the Restless

http://minkle.phenominet.com/emo/images/lines/19.gifhttp://minkle.phenominet.com/emo/images/lines/19.gif

Country: Canada
Current Rank: 71
Current Race Rank: 17


Nathan27 is exactly what you would call one of PAW’s youngest hot prospects. The explosive Canadian has certainly made enough steady progress in the second half of 2003 and in the first few months of 2004 to turn lots of heads. Nathan plays with a spontaneous game style relying on natural instinct, fire power and luck to get him through tournaments, and the method has been paying off, when he finished 2nd at Sydney this year, eclipsing his previous best finish – a 4th in Filderstadt on debut.

These top 5 finishes have provided a platform for Nathan27 in 2004, who prefers not to look at the future and concentrate on his performance week by week. We caught up with Nathan27 in a souvenir stop at Dubai.

Q. Good evening today we are interviewing one the players on the rise, Nathan27.

Nathan27: Hi!

Q. Nathan, you began PAW last year, what enticed you to play?

Nathan27: I really liked the idea of betting on matches and I really like the rankings system!

Q. Do you think PAW deals with a lot of concepts it is essentially a game in which you have to yield the most points, do you think strategy is also involved?

Nathan27: There are many concepts involved such as risk-taking and being somewhat knowledgeable of the wta tour such as how players are doing and their favourite surfaces. That's one of the reasons why I like PAW so much, because there's a lot of skill involved and not just luck.

Q. You were 2nd at Sydney this year, what were you feelings after achieving such a result?

Nathan27: I was thrilled and surprised. It was my best finish in my short PAW career. Although I was most happiest with my 4th place finish at Filderstadt because I think it was one of my first tournaments, maybe my first and I wasn't quite aware of all the tactics involved in the game.

Q. You are one the newcomers of the tour now, do you have any rivals?

Nathan27: Not really. Well, there are a few Canadian newcomers that are about in the same ranking position as I am but I wouldn't consider them rivals.

Q. Who is your best friend on tour, I know you are very close to all Canadian players?

Nathan27: Actually we have a thread going now as you know, and I'm just getting to know a lot of them a little bit more. They're all great!

Q. How long do you see yourself playing PAW? And what goals do you have this year?

Nathan27: I'm not sure. I may have to take a break this summer unfortunately because I'm going to be really busy working. This game is really addictive though. I'm actually really busy now and I tell myself I'll take a break but it only takes a few minutes to post my picks so I keep playing. As long as I love playing this game I'll continue to participate!

Q. Yes this addiction seems to be catching everyone, why is this?

Nathan27: I'm not sure exactly. The wta tour is so dynamic and interesting and the personalities and rivalries add so much to the sport. I think people want to be more involved in the tour and this gives them an opportunity to do so. And as for my goals, I'd like to win a tournament or two and get into the top 30.

Q. Can you remember what was the smartest PAW pick that you have ever made in a tournament?

Nathan27: If I remember correctly, it was in Filderstadt when I chose Mary Pierce over Jennifer Capriati. I chose my personal favourite even though I didn't think she would win. I don't usually do that unlike some players. I think it got me 30 points or so.

Q. Do you have a PAW pick that you regret?

Nathan27: Wow, haha, there are too many (laughs)... Actually, I don't think that there are that many because there is so much talent on the tour and the tour can be so volatile that any pick is possible.

Q. Finally Nathan, can you give us a few sentences to describe your game style?

Nathan27: I usually choose matches where the scoring points are close such as (9-11) or (8-12) but a couple times throughout the tournament I'll throw in some carefully chosen upsets based on the player's comfort on the surface and how they've been playing recently.

Q. One more question sorry... polishprodigy has been quoted saying he will make a decision whether to represent Canada or Poland in the Fed Cup, at the moment the Fed Cup has a criteria in which the top 4 players from a nation can play, are you confident about your chances?

Nathan27: I can't say that I am. Canada has many talented PAW players making there way up the rankings so anything can happen from here until the time the players are chosen for the team.

Q. Nathan, thank you a lot for your time tonight, it was appreciated.

Good luck for the rest of the year.

Nathan27: Thanx!

Rising up to the occasion

http://minkle.phenominet.com/emo/images/lines/19.gifhttp://minkle.phenominet.com/emo/images/lines/19.gif

Country: Canada
Current Rank: 25
Current Race Rank: 47

When one looks at polishprodigy’s resume, there is one result which captures that reader’s impression immediately, US OPEN Runner up 2003. Which polishprodigy, a 20 year old Canadian, born in Poland, worked hard for and thoroughly deserved. Now just sitting outside the top 20, polishprodigy has failed to make the best of starts to his 2004 campaign, but has been working on new game strategies that will and should pay dividends over time. Howevers factors which sway in polishprodigy’s favour in eventually becoming an elite PAW player lies in the fact that he always performs consistently well in the Grand Slams, the real pinnacle of PAW. Even somewhat out-of-sorts, the Canadian number one managed to finish a very promising 24th, fully living up to his seeding of 23. Performances like these prove there is indeed plenty of petrol left in the tank.


Q. Hello polishprodigy, you began PAW in Wimbledon last year, what catalyzed your debut?

Polishprodigy: oh (laughs) Well, i heard about the game and i thought it was interesting, and i like betting, so i wanted to play and i did well in my first tournie, so i wanted to continue.

Q. You play several games on the board, what do you find interesting about PAW?

Polishprodigy: the fact that it is in competitive.

Q. You are currently the top ranked Canadian but sometimes you have opted to play for Poland, can you tell us a bit about your frequent Nationality changes?

Polishprodigy: (laughs) Well, i live in Canada but my parents are from Poland, so I share my time equally between the two nations as they are both close to my heart. I speak both English and Polish.

Q. Both Poland and Canada have lots of highly ranked PAW players, who will you represent in the Olympics?

Polishprodigy: hmmm, how many for each nation?

Q. Not sure, maybe top 3...

Polishprodigy: I will have to consider this at a later time. I will speak to my coaches and make a final decision later.

Q. Last year you came 6th in Toronto after only 11 picks, this obviously displays your talent, has it been a bit of a slow start this year?

Polishprodigy: Yes, for sure. last year I did not play a full season so i have a great opportunity. And i have certainly been dismayed with my results. But I will continue to work hard and hopefully i will have a breakthrough soon.

Q. Do you think PAW is a complex game, but do you take it easy on yourself?

Polishprodigy: I think it can be complex, as women's tennis is becoming more competitive. But the concept is simple.

Q. Who are your best friends on tour?

Polishprodigy: umm, Wojtek and Jakub.

Q. Finally can you give us five words to describe PAW as a game?

Polishprodigy: Competitive. Challenging. Easy-to-play. Fun. Long.

Q. Cheers Paul.

Polishprodigy: (Smiles)

Great interview polishprodigy!! :)

:wavey: I didn't even know we had a thread ;) That's nice. I'm playing Indian Wells and Miami. I'm not playing a lot because of a lack of time and I don't like entering a tournie and not being able to keep up and end up with 3 picks made. I think I'll be ready for IW and Miami. Let's hope I don't do too bad ;)

Well, after a 1st and a 3rd place finish in my first two tournaments late last year I thought I was heading straight to number one but I'm sucking big time this year. When I play the upsets all the seeds win and when I play it safe there's plenty of upsets!:rolleyes:
So I've decided to play smaller tournaments and it seems to be paying off as I'm 5-0 in Acapulco. It could be my first good result of 2004. And I saw that cdpoulin1 is in good shape also. Good luck and keep picking Vaidisova!:yeah:

Hey everyone,

I hope you don't mind that I've changed our thread name from Paw - Canadian Rankings to PAW - Canada. I did this because it's not only about the rankings, we can post anything we want having to do with PAW and Canada.

If anyone has any objections, I'd like to hear your point of view.

I finished 8t in Acapulco. I really made a bad decision picking Marrero over Benesova. I knew Benesova would win but I tried to go for the title. I would have finished 2nd if I had picked Benesova like everyone. Still my best result this year.
Congrats cd on your 5th place!

Commentary:

Nicky2002 has been a success story in 2004. The young Australian now completes three consecutive top 10 finishes in the past three weeks and has set herself to be a forced to be reckoned with for the rest of the year. In second place placed Jeff, who despite not picking the Li over Callens (36 pointer) was still able to catapult to a whopping 166 points through careful conscience. Last week’s Doha winner petosp, proved to be yet again extremely comfortable with the Arab conditions, ending up 4th despite picking his last two PAW’s incorrectly in a last minute decision. The other semi-finalist was oren987 who has already achieved his highest PAW rank last week by breaking into the top 30, and this week will rise even higher. Yes, the Israeli bandwagon keeps on rolling.

WTA Handicapper finished 5th his best performance to date for Britain’s sentimental favourite, however he could have seriously contended for the title after being 10th from only 4 picks after day 2. Nevertheless he enters Indian Wells with newly found confidence. The vastly improving ntohir recorded a 6th spot, ahead of New (7th), Klio (8th) and equal 9th – SpikeyAidanm (1) and efss.

Commentary:

Exactly 500 points was the total, January’s player of the month yielded in 13 brilliant picks to become the first player this season to win 2 titles. The Belgian whose performance this week will give added momentum to his PAW race ranking lead looks set to be the ”SpikeyAidanm” of 2003, who similarly did not fear his inexperience in his first year of PAW. In what was an impressive performance, fellow 2004 debutant kyk710 placed 2nd for his top effort of the year, ahead of ghosts and jrm, a Bulgarian and Slovak Republican respectively who have been superb all season. This was ghosts fourth top 4 finish for the year and for February’s riser of the month – jrm, another momentous performance. Cdpoulin1 loves the clay, finishing 5th.

Former No 3 Jakub was 6th albeit hindered a chance for victory by failing his last PAW. Further down, speedster_ finished in the top 10 for the 5th time this season, “Mr Consistency” recorded a 7th place finish ahead of the equal 8th duo of paellapan and canuckfan. To emphasise the competitive nature of this tournament, paellapan could have won the title with a correct last pick, but instead finished 8th. The best of the players that failed to pick one of two 200 pointers this week was Nathan27, whose efforts were rewarded with a 28th finish and a mere 2 ranking points.

Was the tour too physically or mentally straining? ;)

I got the Brandi match too.
I can't believe I missed out on another 200-point match!!! :fiery:
I thought for sure Kostanic would have been able to dismiss Kleybanova...
You think I would have learnt in Acapulco after missing the Vaidisova match.
Now I have no chance whatsoever at getting close to the top of the leaderboard!!! :(

Ah well, there's always Miami!

And even if I'm 11-4 at Indian Wells I'm still only in 29th because there has been too many upsets that should'nt have happened this week :mad: (Dokic:rolleyes:, Hantuchova:rolleyes:, Petrova:rolleyes: ). I really don't know what to pick in the next round. But I'm thinking of picking Strycova over Henin-Hardenne (She might break her ankle during the first set...:p )

Secondary 5? That's weird sounding :lol:! I think if you were in B.C you would be in Grade 11. I'm in Grade 10.

Weird how all across Canada there are different school systems..

Where abouts are you from in Quebec?

Captain.Canada
Mar 16th, 2004, 10:23 PM
Ontario just changed its high school system.
We don't have grade 13 anymore.
I'm pretty sure every province's high school goes up to grade 12 now.
I'm not sure about Québec and the Cégep system though.

~CANUCK~

Quebec is still different. We go to grade 11, then cegep then university :D

We start with kindergarden, then 6 years in primary, 5 years in Secondary, then 2 years of Cegep and then University!

Im in my last secondary year, here comes the prom ;) oh the the Governor's scholarship ;)

Cegep is useless! We should have one more year of high school with optional classes. Cegep is only good for the people who do « techniques ». Otherwise, there's so many boring classes ( 3 philosophy, 4 french, ...) And there's so many dumb and lazy people there! At least it made me realise that I hate chemistry and physics! :)

Mar 17th, 2004, 06:02 AM

I'm thinking it's going to be Henin-Hardenne and Davenport. Although Myskina might be able to pull of an upset.

Come on lindsay now!

There a few players come above Hantuchov in terms of personality, sportsmanship and temperament. The lone yet fresh Brazilian on the tour had a major rites of passage victory in the prestigious Tier 1 of Indian Wells winning by 5 points ahead of mypapa_je. Hantuchov’s game style has always been attributed by believing in his favourites which makes this triumph all the more satisfying. To win a tournament, you must have a few picks which are risks and differ from others, an example was his “Sucha over Loit” pick, which may have been only for 13 points but demonstrates how he did not fall in the trap of simply picking the obvious.

It was a promising tournament for mypapa_je, who now breaks into the top 30 barrier. Always a threat, he raced to an early lead, thanks to some “big” upsets early on. In 3rd place was Latvian Lady, who has already put herself in contention for the PAW newcomer of the year award with a series of excellent high podium finishes. Like Lady, Philip is another newcomer to this game who began in 2004 and similarly is improving tournament by tournament, the Brit who rates PAW as his second favourite game had a perfect 4-0 start and never looked back.

Antwerp winner K&J fan looks to break into the elusive top 5 with another very nice 5th finish, he is awarded with a fruitful 107 rankings points, and has none to defend until Berlin. Tied for equal 6th was nitsansh (endured his best ever PAW Tournaments through always opting for big pointers), Je_ne_sais_quoi (who finally put in a “decent” performance after his Aussie Open breakthrough) and geegables (whose final pick of “Henin over Davenport” illustrated he does have a future beckoned upon him). A total of 112 players participated, the most ever for a PAW tournament, with the post popular pick being “Kleibanova over Kostanic” which drew 78 players.

Captain.Canada
Mar 23rd, 2004, 10:17 PM
Here's an idea:
Post the Collective goals for the Canadian PAW team this year:


I think a Canadian should win a Grand Slam this year.
(Has that ever been done?)


I think we should have 4 Canadians inside the top 50 by the end of the year.
(We have 1 right now [#25 polishprodigy] and one very close [#51 KoOlMaNsTeVeN])


I think Canadians should win at least 5 titles this year.
(We don't have any up to date but we came close [Nathan27 Runner-up in Sydney, KoOlMaNsTeVeN Third in Paris (OGF)])
(Also, Cdpoulin1 won a tournament last year and came third at a tournament last year!)

If you count the 52 weeks running i have a title! ;)

But still, Congratulations on your third place and on your title. ;) I added that to my little commentary too.

Hey! One more profile added, check post #2.
I made some corrections because sandg keeps some accurate information in the "PAW - Players ranking history" thread.

Any information that people can't find I'll just put N/A.

For W-L record, it's really long to find. Here's what you can do though:
1. Click on your name on the left side of any of your posts.
2. Then click on "Find more posts by (your name)"
3. Then you can check all the posts that you posted in the past and count the amount of correct and incorrect picks you've had in PAW.
If you want, you can just do it for the 2004 season.

There's another way to do it.
Just go to the PAW thread in the Tournaments forum and then check the final league table and add your W-L record.

Bittersweet day for me...
I didn't get my 13 PAW points... :(
BUT ELENA WON!!!! :bounce:

I hope I stay inside the top 16... I'm 11 right now but I think a lot of people picked Venus over Elena.

Ya, definitely great groundstrokes from Elena. I'm glad she's working hard on her serve. It does throw the other player off though!

Wow cd! you took Elena out of your signature!
I guess you're mad about what she did today?

He is more upset that she called vee a liar about the injury. I think CD was having a rough night :lol:

Commentary:

The last time a PAW player came close to emulating a feat Hantuchov achieved in Miami was Grice who won Toronto (Tier 1) and San Diego (Tier 2) within the space of 3 weeks, last year. But what Hantuchov did this time round was indeed more impressive, a mark that will almost certainly go down in PAW’s Hall of Fame. Back-to-back titles in Indian Wells and Miami, coming first in a 112 player field both times, and in Miami’s case absolutely dominating the field, that he was already odds on to win the title even during the half way point of the tournament. Hantuchov is set for some enormous 2004, inevitably he will be the hunted not the hunter.

Semis in Indian Wells were following by a runner-up in Miami, despite getting slaughtered in the final, Philip claims “Riser of the Month of March” and the talent in Great Britain is surely blossoming. Coming back from his first tournament since placing 5th at the Australian Open, Plear (formerly pReUrBrIyN) who was a late wildcard entry here finished third, even despite picking the “Dragomir over Ondraskova” match, a fine achievement for the Canadian. The unpredictable kyk710, a finalist in Acapulco proves he can match it on his home turf as well, ending up 4th.

Playing in only his second tournament, Dutchman James is another on the exciting young prospects on the rise, showing no mercy to finish 5th. Finally registering a decent performance this year, 11th seed Pintaled tied 6th with early leader saab95. Nicky2002 picked with perfection early on but faltered later on, denying her a better finish than 10th, the two ahead of her - _shorty_ and AGUSTIN (both talents on the rise) both put in solid performances to seal equal 9th, at what is renowned as the “5th Grand Slam” on the PAW Tour.
