The French Invitational Team Cup



Welcome all to the first event of on the WIFCT tour. We start here in France on clay. Eyes will be on every team, here in France, we will see clay-court specialist teams like Great Britain II and the Czech Republic I can use their advantage to pull through deep into the draw. Winning the first event could be a great oppurtunity for doubles. The winner of the first event will be the only team to use 85 points instead of 80 on the next stop on tour at Wimbledon. Good luck to everyone!!!

THE DRAW


Russia II vs Great Britain II
Great Britain I vs Hungary
United States I vs Ireland
Austria vs United States II
Germany vs Japan
Czech Republic vs the Netherlands
Poland vs Italy
Russia I vs Serbia

Hantu, Durie and Barker were the players I picked for clay? Right?

And how will doubles work? Will it just be a case of sending in a set of 80 points for doubles as well? Or does surface come in play too?

RULE CHANGE: Surface Pref. gives you 95 points not 100, 100 is just too much I think

10 points is not going to make much difference though, is it?

95:p

cool!

And are we to send in singles points for the different rubbers? Or will Sue and Jo have to have the same points for both of their matches?

player's choice same or different doesn't matter, I think it would be more fun to do different, because you won't be able to easily predict the 4th and 5th rubbers, based upon the results of the first 2
