Yes. Agreed:- good to reflect actual practice where possible.

Great as usual! So is Arvis' analysis smile

Yes, thanks to both.

All worked for me too, once I’d deleted the 128 players. Also, I decided to change my team today and it worked fine. Have checked on a couple of devices and all changes have been saved.

Yes, it worked for a first go at both teams. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks Charles! I did start to do this but there was always an instant replacement! It didn’t occur to me to delete the lot! Will have a go now on my men’s team and see how it goes!

I’ll try anything! smile

I wouldn’t rule it out.....

It´s incredible like the team of Davis Cup of Belgium has come so far, thanks mainly to Goffin. In the final he won Pouille and Tsonga in 3 sets, if he had a stronger singles player than Darcis... they could be champions.


Yes, they could. I have loads of respect for Goffin.

Congratulations on reaching your 50 posts Lexus.!!!

Interesting Lexus. Tsonga is not the only anomaly (3 with 28 picks and year end 15). Sock (25 with 4 picks/8), PCB (28with 2 picks /10) and even Querrey (21/13) Are the ones I would have liked to have picked more consistently! I think there have been more upheavals in the top rankings this year than usual but even so, the emerging players stand out to me. I think Murrayband Djokovic would have harvested similar numbers to Rafa, Roger and Stan had they not had to withdraw in the last part of the year:- perhaps they were replaced by Tsonga, though I’m astonished that JW had the same number of GS picks as Roger! Hard, for me to see Rhyme or reason in the finer details!!

I’m intrigued by this. I agree with Adunar that the coherence of the Teams competition would be undermined by awards for the different tiers. At the moment I cannot see a sensible way around that conundrum. However I would also be very interested if one of you statistical genii were to analyse in tiers the picks of, say, the top 5 team players, and see whether or not there are consistent correlations with the overall outcome. Just for fun!!

Let's see Drivers, which do you believe are the players more picked for the Top 5 Yoda Crew 2017 Teams Players adding GS+M1000?

..Haha - straight to the crux of the question Lexus! With 82 slots to fill and 8 picks per player the simple answer is to assume that top 10 are very heavily represented. I’m sure that is where the stats would show that the emphasis lies. But, getting anywhere in the rankings seems to me to be down to knowing to what degree?? There are often very small margins in this game and whilst current form, past history in a particular tournament are very useful guides I think experience shows that our resident stat gurus usually have a significant edge! If you can persuade them to reveal even more of their expert knowledge than they generously do already, I, for one, will be very happy! smile

Made picks on my PC. It worked, but the Edit page didn't show it working, i.e. didn't tick the boxes when I clicked. It did do a 'loading' icon by showing a grey rectangle.
When I checked on my home page, picks had been made and were ticked.
I went back in to Edit page to change some picks. Again, this worked. But it didn't show me what my original picks were. So, ideally, the Edit page should show ticked boxes.

Exactly the for me on the IPad TE, but you have explained it more clearly.

Hello Adler, what you think about the Caribbean Islands, has beautiful beaches and places with an exceptional natural beauty. There are an incredible place for the lovers of the nature. Have you visited them?

Love travelling Lexus, though I’ve not yet made it to the Caribbean. Will be in S America though for the first time next year. So many beautiful places to see! We particularly like Islands. The Greek Islands in the Aegean are a big favourite and, in contrast, the Hebrides off the coast of Scotland.

Travelling is great fun, I'm soon to travel to Perth to watch the Hopman Cup, first time watching the great Roger Federer "live" so I am really looking forward to it. big_smile

Wow! I’m very envious Tony. We booked a couple of sessions at the O2 a few years ago and we thought we would be sure to see one or both of Roger and Rafa but it didn’t work out that way! It was still  special and we saw Del Po, Gasquet, Berdych and Stan Wawrinka;- but...........

Enjoy!

Yo'all can go for second place - I'm going for the Lord Vader and Senator Padme - Thats why I joined Yoda Crew - To compete with the best and to beat the best... Don't need any other awards...

Haha - it was the teams comp that drew me in Murree but I’m now hooked on the brackets too;- not to mention the sophistication of GSFT. BTW - I’d be very proud to get anywhere near second place!! Go Murree!’

We are now in to the match prediction part of the test. Thanks again for your help.


All made on IPad with no problems, though I thought briefly that there might be as the ‘selection’ page and the ‘selected’ page are no longer adjacent.

I did that analysis years ago. Like ehat would be the optimuted 8 picks for all top10. It was quite a long piece of work...


That must have been before my time. Did you share the outcomes on this site Adunar?

I am not against it. But that competition is all linked together. If you perform very well in the 250 you have less chance to win the overall competition.. meaning you are closer to the donkey than to the genius.

So in my opinion it makes no sense but if everyone wants to have new titles names just for the fun why not. But i will not be fighting for it.

And by the way, you are very welcome here. We never had a spanish speaking tennis fan in our group so it will be a first and it is great! No doubt will hit the 50 posts mark in no time. :-)

It would be great to have you on board Lexus. I think you are Spanish? There are so very many superb Spanish tennis players. You will hopefully be the first of some more Spanish fantasy tennis players who enjoy the game  as much as we do!

I´m from Cuba, and although we don´t have tennis players of high level, we have many fanatics of the world tennis and many followers of the main figures of this exciting sport.

You’ll definitely fit in with this group Lexus. We’re all obsessed with the game! - In a good way!! Keep posting to make the deadline.

Yep, that's us.  Once you qualify for the Yoda Crew here on GSFT, you can gain access to the Jedi Masters league on TDC.

   I see already, and it qualifies for Yoda Crew publishing 50 posts here in this forum... Slightly more, how can I know of that there consist the competitions and awards that are in the first post here above.

Hi Lexus. There is a thread called ‘TDC AND YODA CREW-Titles with description and 2016 champions’ that describes what the competitors and awards consist of.

Hi Charles. I’ve just spotted that the the score tallies in the results update section are not being carried over to the standings section.
