I don't get it ... sorry ... am I too late to join?

Can I pick from that list, or are those the players i can't pick?

Jan 1st, 2002, 10:57 AM
You're not too late to join. That list is the current list of players that you CAN NOT pick since people have already chosen them.

The game works this way:

Based on your surface preferences you are awarded either 103, 102, 101, 100 points.

Your job is to spread these points over three sets. For example: 50 53 0

You then are placed in a draw, where you hope that you have the winning combo that will win the event! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

I sent you a private message yesterday but I think it got erased. I would like to join your tour as Billie Jean King with hard-grass-indoors-clay for surfaces, I have been collecting pictures of her to save you the trouble. I will send you my points again through another private message.
