Lightbulb 2016 Singapore & Zhuhai: congrats Rocketta, The Crow, Geewhiz & Kuilli!

THE 2016 SINGAPORE WTA FINALS!

The top 4 singles players and top 2 doubles pairs in the Year-End Rankings have qualified for the Tennis Poker Singapore WTA Finals, whose format changed in the 2013 season. From 2015, there won't be a Round Robin stage anymore, and the event will start right away with the singles semis and the doubles final.

Each match will be decided comparing the points earned in the Player of the Year standings in the past season in the different sections.

SINGLES
First set: points earned in the Worlds Singles category.
Second set: points earned in the Singles category.
Third set, if needed: points earned in the Champions League category.

DOUBLES
First set: points earned in the Worlds Doubles categories.
Second set: points earned in the Doubles category.
Third set, if needed: points earned in the Champions League category.

In case of a tie, in each set, the overall Player of the Year standings will be used to decide the winner. If it’s not enough, the Year-End rankings will be considered.

Re: 2016 season end events: Singapore & Zhuhai entry lists

THE 2016 ZHUHAI WTA ELITE TROPHY!

Following the WTA tour change, the Sofia ToC has been replaced in the calendar by the WTA Elite Trophy in Zhuhai, which is reserved to the best players who don’t play in Singapore. So, the 4 singles players ranked #5-#8 and the 2 doubles pairs ranked #3-#4 in the Year-End Rankings will qualify for the 2016 edition, whose rules will be the same of the Singapore event.

Good luck everyone!

Re: 2016 season end events: Singapore & Zhuhai singles SF results!

THE 2016 SINGAPORE WTA FINALS!

Ceze ( 3 )

-Ph51- ( 2 )

The singles #1 is still comprehensively too strong for the most impressive newcomer of the 2016.

Phil advances to the final as well after a slow start for the disappointing performance in this year's Worlds singles.

The semis in Zhuhai follow the same pattern of the Singapore draw.

First seed The Crow stops newcomer Salmon Pants in 2 easy sets, while the second seed makes it in three after having lost the first.
The Crow likes this.

Re: 2016 season end events: Rocketta&The Crow wins in Singapore, Geewhiz&Kuilli Zhuha

THE 2016 SINGAPORE WTA FINALS!

GOLD MEDAL FINALS RESULTS!

-Ph51- & Oizo ( 1 )
2, 12, (11+8)
lost to
Rocketta & The Crow ( 2 )
8, 16, (14+24)


Despite losing the #1 spot, Rocketta & The Crow win the Doubles Pair of the Year award.
Besides the better performances in Worlds and Champions League, they collected more doubles wins than the opponents, but less bonus points, always starting with an higher seed position.

Congrats everyone!

Re: 2016 season end events: Rocketta&The Crow wins in Singapore, Geewhiz&Kuilli Zhuha

THE 2016 ZHUHAI WTA ELITE TROPHY!

GOLD MEDAL FINALS RESULTS!

Salmon pants & Vaedda ( 1 )
0, 11: 25+48, (5+5)
lost to
Geewhiz & Kuilli ( 2 )
5, 11: 42+47, (0+2)


Another match going against the Year-End standings but a very close one: Salmon pants & Vaedda would have won in 3 thanks to a better Champions League result, and they couldn't compete in the first set as they were not eligible to play the Worlds.
The only set effectively played was a tie, solved by Geewhiz & Kuilli with experience to get the Zhuhai title.

Congrats everyone!
