PREVIOUS CHAMPIONS:
2005:- ???
2006:- rrfnpump
2007:- gocanadago
2008:- Libre83 and King Of Tennis



Playing F-I-T-D is simple and only takes a few minutes per week. Here is what you need to know:

1) Just post a full predicted draw for the tournament, including all winners in all matches of all rounds.

2) No commitments are necessary for the tournaments; simply post your picks in the thread!

3) You must post your full prediction must be posted before the first ball of the first main draw match is struck. Any draws posted after this time will not be counted.

4) Please post your picks in the form "A def. B", "A d. B" or "A over B", and not "A loses to B". Writing down the winner's name only is allowed, but it might make things confusing for us and you may lose points as a result, so please try to post as specified.
Please post players' full names, not nicknames.

5) Picks can be altered only if a seeded player withdraws after you have made your original prediction. Again, new draws will only be accepted before the first ball of the first main draw match is struck. You cannot alter your picks if the player who withdrew was not seeded.

6) When changing your picks, you must post in a new post, quoting the previous picks. NO EDITING UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! (any edited post will not be counted, no exceptions!)

7) Please keep your picks as your own and DO NOT copy and paste other poster's picks. If you do this this will be taken as cheating and your picks will not be counted.

8) If the qualifiers are still unknown when posting your picks you may add them as "Q" or "QUALIFIER". It would be really helpful if you could give each qualifier a number (e.g. Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4). This is essential if two qualifiers have to face each other as you will have to specify which qualifier you pick to win (e.g. Q1 def. Q2). If you do not do this, that particular pick will not be counted.

9)You will not get points if the player has a bye in first round.

10) Scoring is based on the WTA ranking points for each round of a pro tournament: for each player you predict correctly into the next round, you receive the points for reaching that round.


Example: International Quarterfinals


You picked:


Kirilenko def. Petrova
Wozniacki def. Chakvetadze
Schnyder def. Dementieva
Zheng def. Dulko



The actual winners are Zheng, Kirilenko, Wozniacki and Dementieva.


You will get 130 (points for reaching semifinal) x 3 = 390 points.



11) You may play more than one event a week, but only your best result will be counted.

12) The ranking points will be awarded according to a chart: http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=326409.

Only the 17 best tournaments will be counted. You can find the full rankings here: http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=364687.

The Race to the Championships is available here: http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=365258


Good luck and have fun! :wavey:​

FITD welcomes back the US Open Series for 2009! :D

What you need to know...
  • Basically FITD with a bit of extra incentive!
  • 6 tournaments will make up FITD's US Open Series - Stanford, Los Angeles, Cincinatti, Toronto, New Haven and the US Open.
  • Play FITD as normal and the top 16 finishers (+ ties) at each tournament will score points for the Series Standings (see points distribution table).
  • The Series Standings will be kept separate from the usual FITD rankings and Race BUT the top 3 Series leaders at the end of the US Open will earn a bonus for their usual ranking.
  • Players who took part in the ITF events during last year's off-season or who played in 2007 will be familiar with this :p
Points Distribution For Tournaments...




Where semi-finalists = 3rd and 4th place
Where quarter-finalists = 5th-8th place
Where Round of 16 = 9th-16th place


US Open Series tournaments...
  1. Stanford
  2. Los Angeles
  3. Cincinnati
  4. Toronto
  5. New Haven
  6. US Open
Ranking Point Bonuses For The Top 3 Series Finishers:

1st = 500 points
2nd = 350 points
3rd = 200 points

Please note any tied places will get the full amount of points!


Normally only your best weekly result counts towards your ranking BUT the Stanford week will be a slight exception because there is the International event in Istanbul that week too. For example, say you finish 2nd in Istanbul but 6th in Stanford you will get the 200 ranking points for Istanbul but you will still earn your Series Standings points from Stanford as well.

There's a special US Open Series thread here: http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=384707

I hope everyone will enjoy the Series :) Any questions as always feel free to PM me or visit the thread! :wavey:
