<br />2001 Singapore Exhibition Champion - James Blake<br />"I'm very glad I won the title in Singapore. That was definitely a great boost to my carrer, and my confidence improved drastically with the title. I feel like I can beat anyone now!"

<br />2001 Singapore Exhibition Runner-Up - Nicolas Lapentti<br />"Our final match was very close but I think at the end James was more focused than I, so he won. Three tie-breakers, no breaks of serve, it's a very tough situation. Hopefully I can take a lesson from this match."

I have a few questions guys <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

1) Qatar is hardcorts right?<br />2) Does Blake have 116pts to use on hardcourts now?<br />3) Does a coin flip only happen when both players have the same amonut of points.<br />4) What poits are we using for Qatar, the 115 for best surface or the 130 like on the website?

I ask the third question because I saw in the ETA thread that a difference of 10pts or less is a tiebreaker, so does that mean if I hve 35pts to somebodys 34, do I when automatically like 7-5 or 8-6, or do you use a coin flip?

Yoshie707, you have Roger Federer and these are your surfaces -

Clay =115<br />Hard =110<br />Indoor =105<br />Grass =100

I don't want to be Arazi anymore, I only picked him because all of the other people I wanted were gone. I will be Taylor Dent from now on, my surfaces are hard, indoor, grass & clay. I will be playing doubles with Kacijek from now on because Chang and I did not work out. Please make the changes in the draw and I won't be anymore trouble.

Sorry <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

Sorry, I've been away....but what happened to Safin/Lapentti in doubles?????

I think thats where you're empty spot is....unless Nicolas doesn't want to partner with me anymore <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

<br />Safin is in. Use his same points as last week...I'm not sure what they were and I don't have time to check!!

Hi guys I already fixed everything.

KRIS: You weren't seeded because you and Federer reached semis together, so randomly, I put Federer as a seed. But it won't matter, because only the top 2 seeds will recieve a bye <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

<font face="Arial Black" size="5" color="khaki">Attention WMTA players</font>

I have recieved many weird doubles points. Let me explain clearly hot it will work.

You will have 115,110,105 or 100 points to split in 3 sets at normal events and 215,210,205,200 at Grand Slams! You have to send correspondent surface points. Each player must send their doubles points, and they will be summed <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

If you still have any doubt, ask here. <br />Thanks <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Caio? So does that mean that me and my partner can't combine our points and send them to you in one email? They have to be sent separately or as long as we sum the points ourselves, is that ok, too?
