Graphics of the Round - Singles

R1
Avatar by Kiristea.
- I am very surprised this graphic lost as it was my favourite of the round. We saw a lot of great avatars where Stadia's and Poiree's stood out for me as well.
Banner by Poiree
- My favourite graphic of them all in this round. Very well excecuted. It's pure and there is nothing missing in it. Kiristea.'s banner was one of the better ones as well.
Free Graphic by Michael.
- I really like the colours in this graphic, some nice effects there as well. I've got to admit I thought some contestants needed a bit of imagination on this task but this graphic stands out for me.

Match of the Round:
[4] Poiree def. Michael. 64 60
- While we had other, more close matches, this produced some great graphics. It's a shame these two had to face each other in the 1st round as I believe they could both make it far. When the draw was made, this was the highlight and the players surely didn't disappoint. Michael. shouldn't be too disappointed with losing as he did very well and faced the best player of the round. Well done to both!

QF
Avatar by Teerin
- Though it lost, I really liked this graphic. The colouring is nice and makes the bruschetta look really fresh. Other good avatars were made by Stadia and oneandonly.
Banner by Poiree
- A great graphic that really captures the right feeling and makes you look back happily. Another banner I really liked this round was Stadia's which included a nice blending and a well chosen font.
Free Graphic by Renalicious
- It's really pretty and has a great combination of font, texture and main picture. It was close between this graphic and Poiree's. We saw a lot of good graphics in the 3rd sets.

Match of the Round:
[ALT] Caralenko. def. oneandonly 26 63 62
- The only exciting match this round, at least score wise. Caralenko. entered this event as a last minute alt and this has proved to be a great decision. She is in her first semifinal of the season after getting another 3 set win. The match produced some nice graphics and was very hard-fought.

SF
Avatar by Poiree
- A very underrated graphic. It's simple which I believe was the reason people were turned off by it. I think it's really nice though and Poiree almost made the tower look like something from a fairytale.
Banner by Poiree
- Probably the best graphic of the tournament so far. Perfect combination of font, texture and main pictures. Stadia's banner was really nice as well.
Free Graphic by Renalicious
- Even if it lost, I actually really liked this graphic. In a round where the players lacked a bit of imagination, this graphic stood out to me. It is pretty and I like the mixture of b/w and colour.

Match of the Round:
[4] Poiree def. [1] Renalicious 26 61 64
- The best match of the two quality and excitement wise. The 3rd set was epic with Poiree cruising to a 4-0 lead. Renalicious would, however, claw his way back before Poiree sealed it on her 2nd match point. The match could definitely have gone either way.

Tournament
Avatar by Stadia
- The mix of b/w and colours is perfect here. Font is great. Pictures are very well chosen. It just couldn't get any better
Banner by Poiree
- We saw two great banners in the final as well, but this one takes the cake. For comments, see post 1.
Free Graphic by Renalicious
- It was extremely difficult to pick a graphic in this category, but this one just does something to me. For comments, see post 1.

Match of the Tournament:
[2] Stadia def. [4] Poiree 64 26 63 06 64
- What a way to end the tournament! Two players on the top of their graphics making giving us a hard-fought match. Great quality and this one is a competitor for the title as the best match of the year so far. Well done to both players - and to me for only missing the tournament prediction by one set! I would like to thank all the players and voters for taking part in this. I enjoyed it a lot. See you all in Paris!
Graphics of the Round - Doubles


Graphics of the Round: Doubles QF

Avatar by Caralenko: The font, cropping and the texture (if it is a texture) won me over.

Banner by reetard Amazing banner by reetard, everything about it I liked (except for the boxing gloves ).

Free 1/2 by Michael. and ArturoAce. Can't choose between the two. I liked the colors in Michael.'s free, while Arthur's was a great combination of pictures, textures, font and effects.



Graphics of the Round: Doubles SF


Avatar by Andreas I liked the 'grungy' effect of Andreas' avatar. The blending was nice too, and the logo was a nice touch.

Banner by Renalicious I liked the colors and the textures of the banner. The blending was good too.

Free by reetard Need I say more? A shame he didn't like doing the task

Re: [GMT] Clay Series | Commit now!

Preview

Welcome to GMT Clay Series 2010,

A total of 18 players had committed to the tournament this year. However, due to the volcanic ash, 3 had to pull out before the draw was made as they were stuck in their respective countries and once the tournament started further 3 players weren't able to make it to Europe in time.

The result of the draw wasn't pleasing for everyone. In the top half, Renalicious saw himself with a BYE to his own satisfaction. He is seeded to face Poiree in the semi finals. Poiree, however, got the toughest draw as she had to face IW/Miami winner, Michael. This half features the defending finalist, Kiristea., as well. Kiristea. had a great tournament here last year where she won the doubles title with Vikilliam. and has a lot of points to defend here. She is facing newcomer, Benny., in her first match. The last match of the top half features two comebacks, Bartosh. and $uricate. Both players were participating on the tour in it's first year and it will be exciting to see who has the most to offer.

Bottom half had a lot of promising players in it. Stadia, who has Ananko. in R1, was according to the seedings destined to face zvonarevarulz in the semi finals, but unfortunately she was stuck in an airport in the USA and an alternate, Caralenko., replaces her. She originally announced her retirement from singles but newfound motivation made her want to play this tournament. She is playing against defending doubles champion, Vikilliam., a potentially great match. Teerin and oneandonly were supposed to play against Marco tennis and heart respectively, but they were also affected by the volcanic ash and had to pull out. While Teerin and oneandonly were happy to reach the quarter finals, they were sad that they still didn't get any match practice on the red clay.

Final prediction:
[4] Poiree def. [2] Stadia in 5 sets
- For me, Renalicious is the only other contender for this title, but he might be a bit rusty after a small break from the tour. It will be exciting to see what he can produce. Poiree hasn't shown the form she had a year ago lately but I believe this will be her tournament. She will face some serious competition from Stadia whom is a great graphics maker who can beat anybody.

The first matches will probably start around the 20th of April. I don't know if there will be qualification, because in that case the tournament would start a bit later for you
