A joker is a card which can be given any value and may help you to score better combinations. In each tournament, the player who loses in the first round to the eventual winner will be the joker and will assume the value which gives you the best possible result according to the other cards in your hand.

GOLD COAST
Winner: Venus Williams
Venus had a bye in the first round, no joker for this tournament.

AUCKLAND
Winner: Anna Smashnova
Smashnova’s 1st round opponent: RACHEL McQUILLAN!

AlexSydney is the only poster who chose Rachel. Congratulations! :)

Three tournaments this week, and two of them have no byes in the first round: we’ll have at least two more jokers, let’s hope someone was so lucky to pick them. :)

With a first round bye for the top 4 seeds, it doesn't look likely we'll have a joker in this tournament, but you never know. :)

After day 2, first round losers include Bedanova, Serna, Tulyaganova, Raymond and Torrens-Valero. Complete list of the eligible players will follow, as soon as first round matches are completed. :)

As the HTML code has been turned off this thread looks horrible and doesn't make much sense, I’m sorry. :eek:

I will edit the posts with definitive results and I’ll cancel all the others. :)

For the next tournaments, I will always show in CAPITALS the players who may become a joker, while in brackets you’ll find the player who can make it happen winning the tournament. :)

As the tournament goes on, I’ll show in bold those players who are still eligible, and in italics those who are not.

The first leg will be over next week after the tournament in Paris, so just one more chance to have another joker for your combinations before we get the final results and we move on to the second Tennis Poker tournament of the 2002 season. :)

Thank you, good luck! :wavey:

Waiting for the 1st round to be over, it seems Barbara Schett is probably the only chance for a joker this week: besides the first 4 seeds who have a first round bye, Monica Seles is probably the only player with a realistic chance to win the title.

But you never know. :)
