FWTT Juniors Information Thread (New Players Enter Here)

How to join and Point System.

Create a Fantasy Player with the following information:
(text in Italics are examples)

Name: Mary Davies
Birthdate: May 30th 1984 (You must be at least 14, max 17 Years Old)
Nationality: French
Best Surfaces: Hard, Clay, Grass (You must select your order with only those 3 surfaces)
Player Appearance: Petra Kvitova

What does the surface order mean?
The surface order determines how many points you will be able to use when you play. For your first surface (in this example hard) you will get 105 points, then 102 for clay, 100 for grass. (Note that through years players earn "Experience points" that will be added later)

How we get a score?
You need to divide these points between 3 sets. Example:

You
1st Set: 50 points
2nd Set: 50 points
3rd Set: 05 points

1st Set: 40
2nd Set: 60
3rd Set: 0

In this case you would win the match 7-6(7-0) 6-7(0-7) 7-6(7-4)

But how you got the score?
Here are the tables:

Scoring By Difference of Points
61 or more = 6-0
51 to 60 = 6-1
41 to 50 = 6-2
31 to 40 = 6-3
21 to 30 = 6-4
11 to 20 = 7-5
00 to 10 = 7-6

Tie-Break*
10 = 7-0
9 = 7-1
8 = 7-2
7/6 = 7-3
5/4 = 7-4
3/2 = 7-5
1 = 8-6
.5/0 = 9-7 (Or higher, depending on drama)

If points are tied (example 50 & 50) then the one that has the surface were the event is played in a higher position gets the set, if also in that are tied then the higher ranked.

*At Roland Garros and Wimbledon, there is no 3rd set tiebreaker, so extended sets will be played in place of 3rd set tiebreaker.

To who you should send the player Information.

Points to Send

Each player will start out with their base points of 105, 102, and 100 points
If you have ever won an event, you win "forever" points on that surface.
Grand Slam/Olympics Gold/TAS Series Win = 1.5
GA/YEC/TAS Series 2nd = 1
G1/CC/TAS Finale/TAS Series 3rd = 0.5
G2 = 0

What about events won in the running season?
If you win an event in the running season, you will receive additional points on to your points to send.

Grand Slam = 7
Olympic Gold = 6
GA/YEC = 5
G1/CC = 3
TAS Finale = 2
G2 = 1
G3 = 0.5

These points will be dropped off at the end of the running season and be converted to the "forever" points listed above for the next season.

There is a cap of 115 points MAX per surface.

Juniors who get a WC into a "senior" tournament, will have 80 points to send for that tournament.

Re: FWTT Juniors Information Thread

RULES FOR PLAYERS

1. You MUST be at least 14 years old

2. You are not allowed to change surfaces after you submit them the first time

3. You are not allowed to change your junior players' name. Juniors are not allowed to get married.

4. Each FWTT player can play as many tournaments as they wish, unless they are ranked inside the top 10. Top 10 players are only allowed to play one G2 event per month. The rankings of the date when the initial entry lists for the following month(s) are posted are those to be considered for the regulation. Top 10 players are also completely barred from entering any G3 events, unless those events are held in their home country. They can then apply for a MDWC which will also not count toward their maximum of one G2 event per month.

5. If you enter late into a tournament (after the draw is posted), you will NOT be seeded. However, you can still be seeded in doubles/mixed. Late entering players can only replace fake players. The fake player that is replaced is decided by lot, fake players from the homing country will only be replaced if no other fake players are available.

6. Previous points may be used (if current event is on same surface) for no more than 2 weeks. There is also no guarantee that previous points will be used at all, however if they are kept then every effort will be made to use them. Example: Week1-You send points; Week2-You don't send and event is on same surface; if Week1 points were kept they can be used; Week3-You don't send and event is on same surface; if Week1 points were kept they can be used; Week4-You must send new points or you receive 0-0-0

7. If both players send doubles points, the following will apply:
- If neither specify which points to use, the points will be combined and averaged
- If one player specifies which set of points to use, that set will be used
- If both players specify that their set of points should be used, they will again be averaged

8. If neither player sends doubles points, singles points will be averaged (minus any bonus singles points). If one player does not send singles points, 0-0-0 will be used for that person's part of the doubles points.

9. If only one player sends doubles points, that player's points will be used for the team.

10. If you fail to send points for a Grand Slam or a GA Event you will receive 0-0-0 regardless of whether or not previous points are on hand.

11. In the event of a tie in points, the winner of that set shall be the player who has the preference of that surface higher. If there is still a tie, the higher ranked player shall win.

11. If you send too many points, any excess will be deducted from the set in which the set score is closest.

12. The calendar year in which a junior player reaches the age of 18 will be her last one. After that, she has to leave FWTT juniors and can be replaced by a new junior.

13. Junior players can enter up to six senior tour tournaments, senior players can play a max. of two junior tour tournaments per calendar year (if they're still below 18).

14. Mixed Doubles is part of Grand Slams, Continental Championships and Grade A tournaments, making this a total of 10 tournaments. There ia a separate ranking for mixed doubles as well which is used to determine 50% of the seedings. Mixed partners have to be part of the ITF Junior Rankings, their current ranking position counts the other 50% of the seedings.

15. Continental Championships are held every year. One is for Europe, one for Africa, North and South America and one for Asia and Oceania. At the Continental Championships, doubles partners have to be from the same country and mixed doubles partners have to be real juniors from the same country, too. Youth Olympics are held every four years. There, doubles and mixed partners do not have to be from the same country, but if there are fellow active junior players and/or real boy juniors from the same country who are ranked inside the top 200, those players have to be prioritised for this event.

16. As of July 2015, you are allowed to have two junior players. They are not allowed to be born in the same year and they may not play doubles together except at Continental Championships or Youth Olympics.

17. As of November 2015, the [RES]-Spots has been introducetd.
This spot will go to a player who performs really well the week before at an event of the same, of higher grade or one lower and who would have had to play qualifying in the ongoing week.
The following rules will apply for the [RES]-Spots:
a. If the event the week before was the same level as this week's event (G1=G1, G2=G2), the player needs to reach the final in order to get the spot.

b. If the event the week before was one level higher than this week's event (GA=>G1, G1=>G2), the player needs to reach the semi-final in order to get the spot.

c. If the event the week before was two or more levels higher than this week's event (GS=>G1/G2, GA=>G2), the player needs to reach the quarter final in order to get the spot.
d. If the event the week before
was one level lower than this week's event (G1=>GA, G2=> G1), the player needs to win the title in order to get the spot. This serves as a motivation for lower-ranked players to play smaller events.
e. If more than one player fullfils the criteria, the spot will be given to (i)the player who went deeper in the event the week before then to (ii)the higher ranked player.

f. If no player fullfils the criteria, the designated wild card receives the MD spot.
