How to join?

In order to join you must choose three players. They can be any player currently ranked in the top 100 or a junior player. (Exceptions can be made; just ask and I will let you know if you can have that player)

Schedule

The schedule will be very balanced taking into account the format of the game in order to not give more value to one surface over other. We will have 5 mini-series of tournaments. Each mini-series will have 1 Grand Slam (or YEC), 1 P. Mandatory, 1 Premier 5, 1 Premier and 4 International events. Check the schedule thread for full schedule.

Sending points

Now comes the funniest of all things. You must send points via pm to me and they are different for all 5 surface: (Plexicushion, Clay, Grass, Hard and Indoor). Each surface has a style identical to some well-known games in the board. For the re-start of WCTT I have decided to change the styles to the following:


Surfaces and points style:

PlexicushionWSC style
ClayTFT style
GrassFTL style
HardNTT style
IndoorOWTT style


Plexicushion
WSC style



WSC has a simple and fun style. Based on how good you are at dividing points but also you will need a bit of luck. In the beginning of every tournament you should send your points that will be the same for all matches of a tournament.

Sending points

You have 200 points to divide into the following 13 attributes. This list will be used for all sets.

Serve:
Return:
Forehand CC:
Backhand CC:
Forehand DL:
Backhand DL:
Speed:
Footwork:
Volley:
Lob:
Mental:
Power:
Touch:


Scoring a match

In each set I will random the attributes and at the order they stay I will score the game. The random will be the same for all matches in one round and will change round by round. Whoever has the highest number in an attribute wins one game. Then the scoring is exactly the same as WTA with 3 sets with tie-breaks. In the tie-break we determinate the differences with the following table:
+7 - 7-6(0)
+6 - 7-6(1)
+5 - 7-6(2)
+4 - 7-6(3)
+3 - 7-6(4)
+2 - 7-6(5)
+1 - 7-6(6)
+0 (CT*) - 7-6(7)

If there is a tie in an attribute, the player with newer points wins the game, in case that is equal too, a coin-toss will decide the winner of that game. The list will be re-shuffled for each set but is the same in all matches of a round.

Doubles

For doubles I will add both players points, from then on the scoring will work exactly like in a singles match.


Clay
TFT style



This is an unusual style that is a combination of several styles. So read careful to understand it properly. In the beginning of the clay mini-series you will be asked to divide 3,500 points into the 6 weeks of that mini-series. However you have rules to do it. Depending on the category of the tournament there is a limit number of points for it. As you can see below:

Grandslam: 600-900
Premier Mandatory or Premier 5: 500-800
Premier: 400-700
International: 300-600

After this, in every tournament you will have to send the amount of points you put on it, according to the points system.

Points System

So for Sydney, you have 500 points:

1. First, you divide those points into 3 sets, however there is limits for how much you can put into a set. For each set you can put from 100 to 400 points.
Ex.: 400-300-100 (800) or 300-300-200 (800) or 100-100-100 (300)

2. Second, you divide the amount of points of that set into the 13 games of the set

Ex.:
Total points=500
Set 1 - 200 = 20-20-20-20-20-20-20-20-20-20-0-0-0
Set 2 - 200 = 20-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15
Set 3 - 100 = 20-20-20-20-10-10-0-0-0-0-0-0-0

Then, whoever has more points in a game wins that game. And the rest will be exactly like a normal WTA match. For the tie-break we will us the following scoring table:
+7 - 7-6(0)
+6 - 7-6(1)
+5 - 7-6(2)
+4 - 7-6(3)
+3 - 7-6(4)
+2 - 7-6(5)
+1 - 7-6(6)
CT* - 7-6(7)

If there is a tie in a game, the player with newer points wins the game, in case that is equal too, a coin-toss will decide the winner of that game.

Doubles

For doubles I will combine the points of both players and the scoring will work the same way.


Grass
FTL style



FTL is also a recent style and also very successful. It is in its on a mix of WTL and FWTA. So here it is how it works: In every tournament you must split 500 points into rounds (like in WTL) and then into three sets (like in FWTA).

Ex.: Player A sends:
R1: 200 points
R2: 100 points
QF: 100 points
SF: 50 points
Final: 50 points

Then, Player A splits her Round points into three sets.

Ex.: R1: 200 points (100-100-0)
R2: 100 points (50-50-0)
QF: 100 points (50-50-0)
SF: 50 points (25-25-0)
Final: 50 points (25-25-0)

Scoring a match

Then your points will be compared to your opponent’s points and according to the scoring points table it will produce a result.

NOTE: In case both players have the same amount of points in one set, the player with more points in that round wins the set. If the players sent the same amount of points also for the round, the player who has newer points wins the set. If that is the same, then a coin toss decides the winner.

Scoring points

According to the players points differences and to the specific round they are playing in scores of the set will be determinate by this table:

R32, R16/(All Doubles Rounds)

1 - 7-6(6)
2 - 7-6(5)
3-4 - 7-6(4)
5-6 - 7-6(3)
7-8 - 7-6(2)
9-11 - 7-6(1)
12-14 - 7-6(0)
15-29 - 7-5 (7-5 4-6 6-3)
30-49 - 6-4 (6-4 3-6 6-4)
50-69 - 6-3 (6-2 3-6 6-2)
70-89 - 6-2 (7-5 6-3)
90-109 - 6-1 (6-4 6-2)
110+ - 6-0 (6-1 6-0)

QF

1 - 7-6(6)
2 - 7-6(5)
3 - 7-6(4)
4 - 7-6(3)
5 - 7-6(2)
6 - 7-6(1)
7 - 7/6(0)
8-14 - 7-5
15-24 - 6-4
25-34 - 6-3
35-44 - 6-2
45-54 - 6-1
55+ - 6-0

SF

1 - 7-6(6)
2 - 7-6(5)
3 - 7-6(4)
4 - 7-6(3)
5 - 7-6(2)
6 - 7-6(1)
7 - 7/6(0)
8-10 - 7-5
11-20 - 6-4
21-30 - 6-3
31-40 - 6-2
41-50 - 6-1
51+ - 6-0

FINAL

1 - 7-6(6)
2 - 7-6(5)
3 - 7-6(4)
4 - 7-6(3)
5 - 7-6(2)
6 - 7-6(1)
7 - 7/6(0)
8-10 - 7-5
11-15 - 6-4
16-20 - 6-3
21-30 - 6-2
31-40 - 6-1
41+ - 6-0


Doubles

Points system for doubles is different. It will just be WTL style. So, to play, you have to divide 500 points of the team into the number of rounds, (just like WTL) and nothing more.

Ex.:
R1: 250
SF: 150
F: 100

Then we use the scoring points table. In case of a tie the team with newer points wins. In case that is the same, a coin toss decides the winner.


Hard
NTT style



If you used to play LTT or NTT, it's exactly the same. One of the most popular, simple and realistic ways of sending points. In the beginning of the tournament you send a pm to the manager with your points. You have to spread the numbers 1 to 13 into 13 parts for 3 sets. The person who has the highest number in each game wins that game. In case of a tie there will be used a coin-toss that will always be alternated from then on. For the tie-breaking scores we will use the following system:
+7 - 7-6(0)
+6 - 7-6(1)
+5 - 7-6(2)
+4 - 7-6(3)
+3 - 7-6(4)
+2 - 7-6(5)
+1 - 7-6(6)
CT* - 7-6(7)

Doubles

For doubles I will add both players points and the scoring will work in the same way.


Indoor
OWTT style



OWTT style is one of the most popular TF fantasy games. You just have to split the numbers 1-39 into 13 games of 3 sets. The player with the highest number in each game will win that game, with a CT deciding equal numbers, with all CT’s being random. All of the numbers 1-39 must be used, each being used ONCE only
TB scores will be done with the points difference:
0 (CT) (11-9 or more)
1-2 (10-8)
3-4 (8-6)
5-8 (7-5)
9-15 (7-4)
16-19 (7-3)
20-24 (7-2)
25-29(7-1)
+30 (7-0)

Doubles

For doubles I will add both players points and then the scoring will work in the same way.​
