Topic: Yoda Crew Player of the Year 2019

Post US Open, the tennis calendar begins to wind down and the search for the Yoda Crew Player of the Year begins.


Guiding Principle: The Player of the Year is the most consistent player of the season. Players are therefore rewarded for success in all competitions, even if they don't win a title.

Points scoring:

Yoda Guru Race: 5-4-3-2-1 for Top 5 finishers

Yoda Champions: 2 for each slam win

TDC competitions (Mens & Womens Brackets, Mens and Womens Teams, known as Obi-Wan, Rey, Vader, Padme):

5-3-1 for Top 3 finishers in each

Further:

In the event of a tie in these competitions, the tied players will share points (e.g. 5-5-1 where 2 players are tied for 1st place in Obi-Wan, 5-3-1-1 where there is a tie for 3rd place and so on)

If, after this points allocation, there is a tie for Player of the Year, the UFTR system (Ultimate Fantasy Tennis Rankings) will be used as a tie-breaker to decide the winner (most likely world #1 will be the Player of the Year)

Cue the eternal debate about tied points, because there are already quite a few smile

2019 Race

After the US Open and the conclusion of the Yoda Cup, the standings are:

tenedab 9
Wimbo 6
Tono 4
Snollygoster 3
Edu 2
Drivers 2


tenedab has the lead and should score more points from the TDC competitions.
Although Wimbo is currently in 2nd, he will not be scoring any more points because of his irregular participation in TDC.
This gives the likes of Tono, Edu & Drivers the chance to claim 2nd place.

Re: Yoda Crew Player of the Year 2019

Thank you guys. I've done pretty well in fantasy tennis on both fronts (GSFT & TDC) this year. Not a Grand Slam but 3 out of 4 on TDC is good enough for me. Tough competition from Jenny in WTA brackets and Jamie/Arnie in ATP teams and also fanofeating in WTA teams( frankly I was waiting for him/her to have a food poisoning smile ). It's going to be a downhill from now on but I used to be a good skier so I should be able to handle it.

Re: Yoda Crew Player of the Year 2019
