Pre-Season Round Robin Exhibition






Welcome to the first tournament of TFT where you can all test out your strategies.

Some things you need to know about this tournament:
- Everyone is playing
- Every player gets $500 and WILL NOT come out of your prize money
- Stamina will be used here but will be reset for the first official TFT tournament
- It is a 6 groups of 5 RR tournament. With the top 2 of each group going on to the knock out draw
- Since there are only 12 players in the knockout draw, 4 LLs will fill up the WC spots :)

Re: Tennis Financial Tour [TFT] - Pre-season Exhibition.

I forgot to mention.

In a tourney, you have to use at least 1/5 of your points per set. You can't have 0.

In this instance. You have to have at least 100 in each set.

Dokic and Pavlyuchenkova practise hard for their debuts!!


Dokic hits a backhand during practise

Perth, Australia Aussie tennis player Jelena Dokic has been practising hard in Perth, for her debut at an exihibition event at the TFT Tour. And today she practised a lot of her main weaknesses, like backhand and movements!! Jelena, who is the only Aussie at the tour, will begin her 'real' career in Brisbane, being the only home-crowd favourite there, and here's her feelings towards her debuts at the tour!!

"Yeah, it feels great to debut, always!! You know, this is the start of the season, as well as the tour, it definitely is honor to play the first matches of the tour!! And i hope i can do well there as more preparation here definitely can let me find my best gameplan for the upcoming tournaments in Australia!! Where i think the home crowd will be on my side, i definitely won't dissapoint them, as you know, with the fans in the whole stadium supporting you is just great, and i hope i will just be able to find my best gameplan here, and don't let them be dissapointed!"


Pavlyuchenkova at a press conference

Moscow, Russia Meanwhile in Russia, Her coach's another player Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is also practising hard!! Although she still hasn't gone to Australia to get used the conditions there, Anastaisa has already shown her ambitions about playing well at the exihibition by practising so hard in her hometown!! And we also got her to say her feelings about that!!

"I am feeling very confident right now, as today's practise was going pretty well and i am very satisfied to what i have done in the practise sessions recently!! I still haven't gone to Australia yet, as i really miss my friends and parents in Russia, and i really want to spend more time with them before the season starts, i know i gonna have a long time not seeing them again! I really don't dissapoint them in my debut, and that's why i am practising so hard right now!! I really hope i can get some wins there, and i hope i will also have a fantastic debut season at this great tour!!

They won't know their opponents until tomorrow and play their first matches until Monday!! We hope they will be able to get a good draw and win their debut matches there!!​
