Starting
Pick 1 or 2 WTA players that have been inside the top 200.

You will start off with $12,000

Scheduling
Commit to the schedule. You have to play mandatory events and grandslams. [Indian Wells, Miami, Madrid, Beijing, Australian Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon, US Open]

Only the best 18 tournaments can count towards your ranking. [8 mandatory and 10 non-mandatory events]

It is impossible to play every week. But there are no limits to how many tournaments you can play in. Minimum 25 tournaments.

If you don’t use all your money in a season, the money will either go to your next season or you can ask for a wildcard in a tournament you did not enter.

Dividing Points for tournaments
After doing the schedule, you must divide your $12,000 into the tournaments you’re playing.
e.g. -Sydney = $500
-Australian Open = $700 etc.

There is a limit amount of money you can put in a certain tournament.
Grandslam: $500-$800
Premier Mandatory: $400-$700
Premier: $300-$600
International: $200-$500

Once the thread for the certain tournament, you can send your points.

Points System
This is how the point system works.
For Sydney, you have $500
You will then divide $500 into three sets
Remember; each set has to contain at least 1/5 of your points.
e.g. 200; at least 40 in each set
800; at least 160 in each set

e.g. 200-200-100
And then you will divide each of these into 13 games.
200 = 20-20-20-20-20-20-20-20-20-20-0-0-0
200 = 20-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15
100 = 20-20-20-20-10-10-0-0-0-0-0-0-0

I think the rest of it should be self explanatory.

Prize Money
Depending on the amount of people playing in the tournament, and how much money they put in, the prize money will be different.

e.g. In Sydney, 32 players committed with $300 each
$300 x 32 = $9600
W: $800
F: $600
SF: $500 each
QF: $400 each
R16: $300 each
R32: $200 each

Bonus maybe given during tournaments [more on this later]

At the end of each season, I will count your prize money and this is the amount of money you can use in the next season. If your prize money is less than $12,000, it will be brought back up to $12,000 just so no one is at a real disadvantage.

Stamina
Just as I mentioned up there. You can’t play every tournament.
You will start off with 100% stamina. For each set, there is a price to pay.
6-0 to 6-2: 1%
6-3 to 6-4: 2%
7-5 and 7-6: 3%
This goes the same for your opponent.

e.g. Jankovic starts with 95% stamina and Davenport 100%
Jankovic def. Davenport 7-6 6-7 7-6
Both players will lose 9% of their stamina.
Jankovic; 95-9: 81%
Davenport; 100-9: 91%

This means, Jankovic will have a 19% chance of getting injured and retiring in the next match.

For every day you’re not playing, you will recover 1% of stamina.
You can always retire before a match or before a tournament starts.

Exhibitions and Promotional Shoots
You may be asked by the tour director to do an exhibition or a promotional shoot for money.
There are pros and cons for exhibition and promotional shoots.

For exhibition, you will lose your stamina but will get money from doing the exhibition. You can turn down an exhibition offer.

For Promotional Shoots, you will lose between 1-5% of your stamina (random.org) but will get money for it. But if you turn down the promotional shoot, you will be fined $100-$500

All exhibition matches will be 500 points. This does not come out of your prize money.

Fed Cup
Fed Cup is not mandatory and will be like an exhibition match, no prize money taken away or given. Stamina will be used and all players have 500 per set

World Championships
In every off season, I will hold a world champions where 16 qualified players will represent their country/region and will play in a round robin exhibition. The winner will get extra prize money for the next season. This will not affect your stamina or prize money. Like all exhibitions, players will get 500.

If you have any questions. Please feel free to ask.

Re: Tennis Financial Tour [TFT] - Sign up NOW! [16 players already!]

Since we already have 16 players, I will start an exo on Wednesday [the day of my last exam] and that's where we will start.

Stamina will be used in the exo, no money will be taken away from you. You may get injured during the exo but your stamina will be restored when week 1 starts :)

Re: Tennis Financial Tour [TFT] - Sign up NOW! [16 players already!]

I change my mind, I need 32 players at least. If we don't get 32 by Wednesday, I will fill the spot up with PC players.

Guys, ask people to join, promote the game to another TF member.

You will get extra $100 for every forum member that joins :)

Make sure you tell them to tell me you told them to sign up xD
