Take a look at the <a href="http://www.wtaworld.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=3&t=000151" target="_blank">Rules</a> and <font color=yellow>SIGN UP!</font>

All you need to do is to CHOOSE FIVE TENNIS PLAYERS!

Everything else will be up to me. <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <br />Of course you can’t choose a combination which has already been selected by another poster, but there isn’t any limitation about the ranking anymore. <br />You will be allowed to change your picks in each of the 8 legs, you can find the calendar in the rules thread.

Deadline: December 30th

Thank you, good luck! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Well before anybody else get this magic combination I'll better post it now <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Martina Hingis<br />Patty Schnyder<br />Marie-Gaïane Mikaelian<br />Kim Clijsters<br />Lindsay Davenport

That's my first thought. But don't be surprised when I'm going to change my team couse I'm not 100% sure about Kim and Lindsay as I have other players in mind too.

Hmmmm what about the thing with the replacment players. Do I have to decide them now too?? Djon't quite get that rule. But I think it's positive to have a replacement when one of your players is out due to injury.

DoctorG

Arne,<br />I’m sorry, but I would like everyone to sign up again. I know it may be a little bit annoying but after the board switch I think it’s a good idea to check who’s here and who’s still interested in the game. Just consider Halard-Decugis is still among the chosen players... <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> <br />Once you’ve made your picks here for the first tournament, you won’t need to sign up again for the following rounds: if you don’t want to make any changes, your combination will automatically enter the upcoming tournaments. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Cing,<br />all the ranking restrictions have been cancelled, you are allowed to have any combination you’d like to, but you need to post it here before someone steals it. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Doris,<br />posters don’t choose the replacements, it will be the luck to decide: before the tournament starts, when I compile the draw, I will assign the spare cards completely by chance. I think it will be interesting to push people to follow the results of other tennis players, it may be the chance to discover some new favourites. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Fingon, Valda, Jacob, Doris, Arne,<br />thank you! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

The list of the combinations is available in the third post of this thread. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I received a PM and I think it’s a good idea to answer here too to avoid misunderstandings: I didn’t put any limit about the number of posters, the more the better. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> If we don’t get more than 32 players, the MAIN DRAW will include 16 posters, but there will be a qualifying round to let everyone play. <br />So, we’re up to 16 thanks to M_Pierce fan, but new entries are welcome. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I’m going to bump regularly the threads and I’ll probably try to contact through PM or e-mail all the last year’s players a few weeks before the season starts. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Jacob,<br />First leg: December 31st - February 10th<br />Gold Coast, Auckland, Sydney, Hobart, Canberra, the Australian Open, Tokyo, Paris.<br />The complete calendar is available in the rules thread. Changes will be allowed before the second leg starts. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Just take a look at the first page of this thread to be sure your combination hasn't been already chosen by someone else.<br />If you pick your players before tomorrow, I will include you in the Christmas Exhibition and you'll be able to see a practical example of how the game works before the real season starts with the 2002 tournaments.<br />I'm going to add your name in the team event too, let's hope you'll be able to find other team mates before December 30th. <br />Feel free to ask any question.<br />Thank you, good luck! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
