THE 2013 ISTANBUL YEC!
The top 8 singles players and top 4 doubles pairs in the Year-End Rankings
have qualified for the Tennis Poker Istanbul YEC, whose format will change from this season.
There will be a Round Robin stage for singles, with 2 groups of 4, where top 2 in each group will advance to the main draw semifinals. The doubles event will start right away with the semifinals, just like the WTA format.
Each match will be decided comparing the points earned in the Player of the Year standings in the past season in the different sections.
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.
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 by both posters.
In case of a tie, in each set, the overall Player of the Year standings will be used to decide the winner (the sum of the points earned by both posters for doubles). If it’s not enough, the Year-End rankings will be considered.
Good luck everyone!
