My old player, Adriana Vicario, never made it past #2 even with her French Open win. :sad:

well the new player i started this month i put almost all the points on serve backhand and forehand...and with that she is 20 and 12 this month...so i think you should do that first then work on surfaces..just my opinion :p

My player is 30... he did shit until this year, but really that's how I worked it out.

He has 100 on everything but clay, where he's around 60 points or so.


I have a new player, and she's 0-7 :lol:

Sorry Phil, but I created Karol with the hope that he would win Wimbledon (started with 100 on grass)... and he finally did it... so no pity from me :p

Skills are more important than surfaces, but at the top, it seems surfaces are the deciding factor (because most are at 100 in skill)

Leena, I train my player religiously. For the past 12 months I've trained him every day but one, when I was in DC and didn't have access to a computer. I was very heartbroken.

tatra, on playasport.com they have information on how to play. it's really simple, you just train them and they do the work.

I guess setting up a good schedule means a lot, but that's really up to the person.

Cool. :)

That makes me want to start a new player next month... and get her to the top :p

Shouldn't I be the one giving advice? I *am* #1. :devil:

LeonHart

My first player Elena Bovina has already won 2 tournaments this year, but my other player Leonhart has lost 2 finals! :mad: He only managed to win 1 career title last year. boo.

Aerien
Oct 21st, 2003, 01:45 AM
So you were the person that beat me in the finals :p

Yeah, well at least you're gonna be in thier record books. :)

I trained my old player on two surfaces mostly: hard and clay. Since that's where a lot of tournaments are played including three of the grand slams. I only trained her for grass and carpet on her last year.
Nine titles including the French Open and making the US Open finals can't be wrong. :)

Scotso

Year three my player who is #1 now was around 600 or so in the rankings.

Hooray for the late bloomers. :D

My player did nothing until she was 27.
(And I defeated you at the Canadian Open final, not the French. :angel: )

Same here... 554, I think. I'm not losing hope. Still training him every day! He's 27, still has time!! ;) Congrats btw to Karol ;)

no. 1, Congrats!

I think all of my players are retired now, but all three were at one point in the top 50. :)

Scotso
Oct 21st, 2003, 04:16 AM
Vicario, I was talking about my other player :p

But yes, you did beat me at the Canadian, but I plan to win that this year, along with the US Open :devil:

Gone to my head? I'm the most humble person to ever be the best!

Yeah that is pretty good. My player at 21 was 700-800 range.

congrats!

although i was the first wtaworld poster to win a gs :p i won the AO about 10 months ago (right after i made the finals of the us open). my player was a couple of points away from the top ranking and then i went to croatia so i didn't have the internet and couldn't train her and she sucked when i came back (my player was iva majoli). i might start playing again. my other former top player was mario ancic who made it to n.8 i think.
as far as points go, there is a trick to the game which i figured out by accident which you can use to have really good results on hardcourts (but you will suck on every other surface - but that doesn't matter since there are 18 weeks of hardcourts in the calendar), but seeing as i am about to create a new player, i might just leave you guys hanging... :devil:

lol croat ;)

I remember your player being at the top, that's when I started training daily :p
