Arrow Newbies to be seeded according to Australian Open values - 2010 results!

I need to estabilish a sort of ranking among the newcomers for various puroposes:

1) Singles and doubles: someone will get a first round bye in the qualies.
2) Fed Cup: rosters are based on rankings.
3) Doppio Giallo: partners are chosen pairing up the first with the last, the second with the last but one, and so on.
4) Champions League: divisions and groups will be made according to different criteria, including the singles ranking.

That's why I decided to use the Australian Open values to decide the seeds: it's the most important tournament of the first leg and it will have a great influence on the final outcome, but at the same time it's one event out of 7 and there's still plenty of room for an upset.

The Australian open values will be announced in this thread round by round, so it will also be a great chance to see how this game works.

See you later today for the first update!

Re: Newbies to be seeded according to Australian Open values

Larcher de Brito lost in the qualies and Sharapova is not playing, so they remain scoreless. Usually in Tennis Poker events a player who doesn’t compete in any event during a certain leg is substituted with another one (named “spare card”) chosen randomly among the higher-ranked who haven’t been picked.
This particualr thread is just to decide the first leg seeds and this rule will not be applied this time.

First round losers always score 2, in a Grand Slam but in all the other events as well.

2: A.Radwanska
-: Larcher de Brito, Sharapova

Re: Newbies to be seeded according to Australian Open values

Vz.Chy scored a pair and can lose the top spot only with the quarterfinals, as from the semis on values are not repeated anymore.

Re: Newbies to be seeded according to Australian Open values

As there won't be a 9 (Dokic) or 10 (Bartoli) from the top half, nobody else will score a pair, so Vz.Chy will end at #1.

Re: Newbies to be seeded according to Australian Open values

The loser of Zvonareva vs Safina will score Q, while the bottom half semifinalist will score J.
A for the winner, K for the runner-up.

Re: Newbies to be seeded according to Australian Open values

Ah, now I get how it works. I should have picked completely different players!

You can use your new tactic in the 2nd leg. Even though I know how it works, I still make bad player selections quite often at times (like in the 1st leg).
