Yes, folks here we are at the final tournament of this game for the year....

It has all come down to this, with Steven, our current leader, having a cushion of $4.49

The website has been updated, but as usual, does not include anything except the 4 finals from yesterday

<br />1. Players well be treated as there seeding, not their ranking....

i.e. If a number 7 player in the world is seeded number 5 in the event, then the priveledges of beating her are treated as a top 5 player, not 6-10.

2. Every match is worth 10 times a grandslam match victory...in other words every win is worth $1.60 per share plus bonuses.

3. Bonuses are 5 times the normally amount.

4. For the first time, rankings will increase the doubles Victory's win..if a lower seed wins then this will be reflected by the ranking, something that has not been done before.

5. Doubles will also incur the exact same bonuses as singles.

6. After giving a rough look at results, awards etc, anyone in the top 15 may take out the event.....

The final winner, will carry a extra $50 over to the challenger series starting in Pattaya.

Important, there is no Tournament pick as such this week, instead:

We will wait until the final, and borrow a little from earthcrystal's game. You will need to pick the winner with the scoreline, the closest to it, gets the prize...$114.97, so there will be only one winner

Hi Adrian!<br />I think there's a little mistake in the seeds, Tauziat is #8 and not Testud. It would be a nonsense to have seed #6 vs seed #8 in the first round. <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

Well, I've checked the rankings, and I guess they made the seeds and put the players in the draw with the best 17, where Tauziat is #8; while Sandrine is #8 if we consider the total of points.

The draw on the website doesn't include the seeds. <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

The decision is up to you, my friend. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

mmm...all Done....

Carot, are you just pleased to see me or are you pilfering Food dye? <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

<br />Ok, there will be no updates on the website this week, as it is going to be changed over in the next few days in preparation for the Challenger series beginning next week....

<marquee>Yikes</marquee><br />There will be updates here, all though info will be scant....just sharemovements and available cash.....gotta keep it exciting... <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

By the way don't bother checking out the challenger tournaments this week as I'm not accepting them this week <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
