<font size=5>The Elite Tennis Association Official Rules and Information<font size>

Tournaments<br />Here are the tournaments we will be playing. In order to get this game rolling, we’ll start at Toronto, Canada, and keep on playing through the off season. We’ll follow the 2002 WTA schedule, when the new season starts. These events that we are playing now the points that will be accumulated, we’ll come off during the normal season, as if they were played when the actual events were played. Is that clear? Ask questions if you’re unsure.

October 22 Rogers & AT&T Cup<br />October 29 Pilot Penn Tennis<br />November 5 US Open<br />November 12 Brasil Open<br />November 19 Toyota Princess Cup<br />November 26 Ladies Kremlin Cup<br />December 3 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix<br />December 10 Swisscom Challenge<br />December 17 Generali Ladies Linz<br />December 24 Sanex Championships

December 31 Gold Coast, or the highest ranked tier event played during that week

Scoring<br />Each player will first rank their surfaces in order of their preference.<br />The surfaces are Hardcourt Outdoors, Clay, Grass, and Hardcourt Indoors (Carpet, Supreme, Greenset)<br /> <br />First surface 103<br />Second surface 102<br />Third surface 101<br />Fourth surface 100

Then each player will break their amount of points, 100-103 depending on the surface, over three sets.<br />For example:

Set 1 30 <br />Set 2 40<br />Set 3 30

This is how the scores of matches will be determined

Let x = the difference in points between you and your opponent

If x is greater 50, the set is 6-0<br />If x is less than or equal to 50 but greater than 40, the set is 6-1<br />If x is less than or equal to 40 but greater than 30, the set is 6-2<br />If x is less than or equal to 30 but greater than 20, the set is 6-3<br />If x is less than or equal to 20 but less than 15, the set is 6-4<br />If x is less than or equal to 15 but less than or equal to 10, the set is 7-5<br />If x is less than 10, the set goes to a tie break, with the person with more points winning. The score is determined by x. If x=3, then the score is 7-6(4)

A tie break occurs when both players have the exact number of points!<br />Tie breaks are determined by flipping a coin. One player will be assigned heads, the other player will be assigned tails. The first person to reach 7 heads/tails, wins the tie break, or if the tie break goes past 7, whoever wins by two.

Rankings<br />Round Points<br />Grand Slam<br />W 500<br />F 364<br />SF 234<br />QF 130<br />R16 72<br />R32 44

Send me the surface points when you send in your first points. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> Don't send me points yet until I say so, hehehe, plus you don't know where to send them! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I have decided that its probably more fair if each player announce their surfaces. So attempts at cheating and foul play are reduced! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Put your surfaces in this thread! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Bump!! Tennisace... when is Fec-Cup gonna be held?

Nov 3rd, 2001, 04:30 AM
I mean Fed-Cup...

BTW, how many players are there in all? I think we could expand the draw size giving away more byes so that not so many people have to play qualifying...

I haven't really thought about Fed Cup yet. Its going to be hard to find a week to put that in since we're playing every week up until the new season. We could play a tounrey and Fed Cup in the same week but I don't know. Suggestions?

Right now we have 42 players with 36 of them being active. So I can't really expand the draws yet, lol, everyone would have a bye except for like 2 people! LOL! But I'm waiting until we have enough players for that!
