Your French Open ATP/WTA Squad !!!!

Learning from past mistakes, here is the French Open for your competitive team.

Only 4 times a year ... only during slams. Your rocking ATP/WTA team !!!!

Build a 6-player team made of 3 WTA and 3 ATP players in any order.
Sit back and watch your team members push your team to the top, with each victory. It's that easy !!!!
No daily maintenance. Your work is done once you line up your players.

Rules Reminder:
When you add up the rankings of your WTA players, the total should at least = 15. Same for ATP players' ranking total.
( If you have for instance Osaka, Pliskova and Halep as your WTA crew, that team will be invalid because their total ranking is 1+2+3 = 6)
You can earn bonus when your player totally destroys the opponent...

Follow the French Open with added excitement, rooting for your team and wishing the other teams go down in flame. lol lol lol !

Post a draft team now. Revise as many times as you wish when you change your mind!!!!!

Teams must be submitted before the first R1 match.
Good Luck !!!!

Re: Your French Open Squad !!!!

As usual, here is an example of the team format:

Team Name: See Paris and Die
(make your team name cool and unique)
1 Wozniacki
2 Dimitrov
3 Konta
4 Nadal
5 Thiem
6 Collins
Cheerleaders: Red Dirt dwellers

Tip: the higher the player on your team, the more points he/she brings in.
So it's a good idea to mix ATP and WTA.

deadline: Teams must be submitted before the first match of the Main Draw.
All Teams list will be displayed @: https://tennisgamers.com/board/slams...RG_SkanCanTest

Your team is invalid. Please revise.

Your WTA total Halep + Bertens + Kvitova = 3 + 4 + 5 = 12 ... Ranking total must be at least 15.
Your ATP total Nadal + Djokovic + Thiem = 2 + 1 + 4 = 7 .... Must be at least equal to 15.

Would be too easy otherwise.
