This is awesome Milo - We are having a good ATP year - This could lead to a new "Doubles" competition category for next year...

We have done that for the Olympics but I like it. Would you want to track and run it, Murreee?

Re: THE VADER TROPHY! (Vader League 2018)

Come up with something cool
Also what level comp should we play 1000, 500?
Or mixed doubles meaning ATP and WTA combo?

Re: THE VADER TROPHY! (Vader League 2018)

Chewbacca Cup... Two player teams - Year long competition - ATP & WTA - all tournaments except slams - Best score per each tournament of the 2 players counts - results from TDC team scores.... Select teams before first tournament of the year...

Re: THE VADER TROPHY! (Vader League 2018)

Interesting idea. But only teams? I would rather have it for brackets as teams are more tactical.
We already have the Chewie Medal (rankings for gran slams only brackets) so that name is already taken..

Re: THE VADER TROPHY! (Vader League 2018)

In Tokyo, Edu won with 770 points, being the only one to have Medvedev on his team.  Really nice, Edu!  However, that achievement was overshadowed by Murree in Beijing, who was the only one to have both finalists and managed a score of over 1000!  How does Murree do it week after week, folks??

Current Vader Standings
1. Murree: 45360
2. HTS: -2550 ↓845
3. Tenedab: -3020 ↓500
4. BHP: -360 ↓375
5. Spotec: -4205 ↓345

Incredible.  I think that may seal Murree as our Vader champion for 2018, everyone!  Wow!  Who would have thought that Basilashvili would have been his final body blow to defeat us all?  HTS fought gamely but it's very unlikely that he will recover from this week.

Re: THE VADER TROPHY! (Vader League 2018)

Nice Murree

Man, my Vader season is pretty laughable now, so close to picking Basilashvili but went for Coric instead, who lost R1, and has now just knocked out my Shanghai pick Stan in R1.
I'm tempted to do an Andy Murray and shut my season down at this point.

Yes, Murree is the star of this show!,

Shutting down your season might help me to achieve a slightly more respectable overall score in Vader TE!! I’m very grateful to Aiur for missing the last couple of weeks!

Re: THE VADER TROPHY! (Vader League 2018)

An excellent win in Shanghai for Snollygoster!  Both he and Adunar broke the 2000 point mark with some amazing picks!  Neither Murree nor HTS had Djokovic, but it's unlikely to matter in the overall.  Not many points left to be had this year.

Current Vader Standings
1. Murree: 46175
2. HTS: -2595 ↓40
3. Tenedab: -3415 ↓395
4. Spotec: -3645 ↑560 ↑1 rank
5. BHP: -3930 ↓300? ↓1 rank

Has this competition reached its conclusion prematurely?  Something crazy would need to happen in Paris for Murree to lose now.

Re: THE VADER TROPHY! (Vader League 2018)

I still like to know where I rank in Vader! I must have fallen off the Map!

Re: THE VADER TROPHY! (Vader League 2018)

You're 16th in Vader, 11th in Padme. You can see all these rankings in the Jedi Masters Group section of the website.

Re: THE VADER TROPHY! (Vader League 2018)

Thank You TE! Oh L that's awful!

Re: THE VADER TROPHY! (Vader League 2018)

Some really impressive point totals in last week's 250s.  Every single one of the winners broke 400.  Dwight won Moscow with 450, Tono won Antwerp with 490, and Edu, Dtrain, and Drivers tied for the win in Stockholm with another 450.

Current Vader Standings
1. Murree: 46910
2. HTS: -2225 ↑370
3. Tenedab: -3185 ↑230
4. Spotec: -3320 ↑325
5. Lexus: -3635 Knocks BHP off the leaderboard

Everyone gained on our dominant Vader leader, but not by a lot.  Is it possible that anyone could make up multiple thousands of points over the final 3 tournaments?

Re: THE VADER TROPHY! (Vader League 2018)

(SPOILER: Murree is still winning. By a lot.)

In Basel, Sneaky Spotec had a Federer pick in his pocket and used it with aplomb, scoring a total of 950 points for an easy win with a 400+ margin over everyone.  In Vienna, Arvis of all people had 3 SFists, including both finalists and a tricky Verdasco pick, finishing with a total of over 1000 points (good for first place on the whole site, #humblebrag).  Only he and TE had the winner, Anderson. Both TE and Arvis beat the rest of the field by a minimum of 400+.

Current Vader Standings
1. Murree: 47880
2. HTS: -2260 ↓35
3. Spotec: -2755 ↑565 ↑1 rank
4. Tenedab: -3340 ↓155 ↓1 rank
5. BHP: -3815 Knocks Lexus off the leaderboard

Spotec has gained nearly 1000 points on the leader over the last two weeks!  But it still seems too little too late.
BHP and Lexus are having quite a slap-fight over that #5 spot.  BHP currently leads Lexus by 55 points.

Murree!  You've got over a 2000 point lead going into the final tournament!  A perfect team in Paris would be worth 2680.  The second you reach around 600 points or everyone loses two players, your win is guaranteed!  Fantastic job!
