I think it's a good idea to create a mailing list for all the Tennis Poker players. :cool:
I'll send you a brief newsletter when new results are posted. Once in a while a reminder of the schedule and of all the deadlines may be useful as well. :) Hopefully we won't have any problem, but it may be very useful to keep in touch if the board is closed again as well.
My e-mail address here is firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're interested in this idea, let me know in this thread, through PM or by e-mail. :)
Thank you! :bounce:

Second singles title for Petosp, who is likely to be #1 at the end of the season. Second title also in the doubles for Doris Loeffel and Brian Stewart, while Lindsay Land and Momosapia qualified for the Fed Cup semifinals and will face Ponderosa Posse and Kouklara. :)
Spare cards and values:
Fed Cup finals:
ManuelanMaggieLover won two gold medals, and Tetetubby two silver ones. They scored the same combination, but ManuelanMaggieLover won as Myskina had a slightly better average than Davenport (Anastasia and Lindsay were the only different players). Tia Clara had also won the bronze medal at last year's World Championships. Fed Cup is also over, with Momosapia, Ponderosa Posse and Kouklara at the top. :)
Hurricane Lily scored a straight to win her first singles title, while KC & ARANTXA:simply the best showed great teamwork in the doubles event. The top 2 seeds advance to the Fed Cup final, while the line-up for the Olympic finals is definitive.
