I have yet to work out the kinks and the logisitcs of how things will be run. What I think I will do is figure out how many weeks there are until the new season begins. And from that I will count back from the end of this season.

So our first event might be Bahia or something. I'm taking suggestions on how you want this to be run since this is the end of the season.

Right now, I'm still trying to figure how this thing will work. It will be the same format as the other games, 100pts. etc.

I WILL NOT PARTICIPATE in this game to avoid any biases.

To make the choosing of players FAIR to all. I ask that you pick 5 players that you want to be in order of your preference.

Ex.
1. Kim
2. Justine
3. Cara
4. Marissa
5. Zsofia

I'll make a cut off day, probably in a week. I'll tell you when later. And then I'll throw everyone in a hat, and draw. The first person drawn gets their top choice, etc. Note: If you pick Venus, Serena, Martina, Lindsay, and Jenn, you might want to pick more choices cuz they might be taken by the time you get drawn.

I am running a new game because I want people to have the sense of security that this game is fair.

well, i don't think it's necesarry 2 run another game like fwta, i don't think the sense of fairness might be the only reason 2 start a new game, like i already said i'm not a cheater & i would love 2 run the fwta game if u guys trust me 2 do it, like every1 might noticed i joined this board not 2 much ago, & i didn't post at the sanexwta message board, so plz don't judge me

I have absolutely no idea how this works but:

1. Clijsters
2. Davenport
3. Henin
4. Seles
5. Dokic

So we only have one player in the game then? Whichever one that gets draw out from our list that isn't taken by someone else?

You'll send me points, 100 over three sets. For example:

Set 1 10
Set 2 60
Set 3 30

And well I'll have to write the rules to figure out exaclty how one beats another and the exact scores. The probelm with the previous games is that there is no exact rules.

Get your final picks in now! I'm drawing names tonight. Most of you will get your top picks. Though there are a lot of people who requested Venus and Monica, so unfortunately you might get your 3-4 picks. Hopefully you'll have good luck! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Cheers! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">
