Introduction: Melbourne, Australia is the location of the season's first grand slam! With a full draw of 32, 15 players will receive opening round byes! The opportunity window is significant for all players. Will we see a new champion crowned? Or one of the tour's leading forces? I can't wait to find out and I'm sure you can't either!
Points: All players have 150 points to use, since this is a Grand Slam event. Everyone is required to send new points. I will not use your old points. If a player fails to send points, they will lose by walkover and immediately be removed from the rankings. Points are due Saturday. I repeat, Everyone is required to send new points.
Doubles: Make teams for doubles, everyone! I have made a slight rule change, though. For doubles, one partner must send a specific set of points. The doubles event will take place if four teams or more are made.
