Lightbulb The Tennis Poker 10th anniversary special exhibition: congrats Geewhiz, Doris&Brian!

The first tournament started right after the 1999 US Open, so were going to celebrate a whole decade of Tennis Poker!.

For this special occasion Ive decided to give a chance to an idea we discussed last year: in the end, it was abandoned as a part of a more complex project. I do think its the perfect occasion to give it a try as an exhibition and see how it works.

The basic idea is playing a whole Tennis Poker leg within the same Grand Slam event, where each draw quarter is considered as a separated WTA tournament with 32 players.

All the active Tennis Poker players will be automatically admitted with their 7th leg team, but they are free to make special dedicated picks, reserved to this event only, signing up in this same thread. There will be a singles and a doubles draw, with the usual pairs.

New entrants and former Tennis Poker players are welcome!

Remember the new scoring system: each draw quarter is considered as a separated tournament with 32 players. Example in the picture: French Open, draw of 128. In this post I'm showing just the top half.

A: Safina, Kuznetsova
K: Dementieva, Kanepi
Q: Sharapova, Azarenka
J: Zvonareva, Kvitova
10: Knapp, Petrova
9: Govortsova, Medina-Garrigues
8: Wozniak, Szavay
7: Zheng, Schiavone
6: Mattek, Domachowska, King, Chakvetadze
5: Rybarikova, Cohen-Aloro, Cirstea, Lisicki
4: Kirilenko, Amanmuradova, Mamic, Stosur
3: Sanchez, Sugiyama, Kleybanova, Pironkova
2: all first round losers.

So this is just for US Open, right? Are we playing only singles, or are we playing doubles also?

Ok, I'll be the first to change my team.

Dementieva / Jankovic / Safina / S.Williams / V.Williams

Thanks Doc!!

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
Be kind.

Never mind. I didn't read everything. It's singles and doubles.
