You can't. You have to go on a PC to drag and drop.

Yay, glad you brought this one back!

Use the dartboard. Best tournament for it along with Nanchang.

Okay, Shenzhen is on the way. Couple people did not enter their picks: Lexus, Aiur, Marco, Tom and Wimbo. Let's see if they join us for the Monday start.

about 5h left before WTA Brisbane & Auckland. About 7h for ATP Brisbane and 14h for Pune, 16h for Doha.

Participation is absolutely insane. We have more Teams than we EVER had, more than any GS. And this is just the beginning with the lower categories!

Brackets numbers are already category records. in WTA, we even beat the 1000 record with 280/470. In ATP, we already beat the 500 record with 250.

Sounds like the season is going to be a GREAT one!!

Hello everybody!

The new season is kicking off on Sunday with the start of the WTA shenzhen main draw.

5 other tournaments are taking place in the asia/oceania region of the globe (Brisbane atp&wta, Doha atp, Pune atp and Auckland wts. Because of the timezone, draws may well be online already on friday evening!!

Make sure you enter your picks on saturday for shenzhen because play will start on Saturday evening US time !

Thoughts on the season to come? You all ready for a new season after a great fantasy tennis camp in December?

Let it begin!

Yes, I like Khacha's and Coric' chances better than tsitsi and medvedev at the moment. A bit more consistent.

It was not Delpo's back that got injured... it was his knee (menisc).

Ballsy Murreee! I dont see kyrgios getting nowhere. Shaps is still young and inconsistant. Tsitsi can definitely make it but I expect him to stagnate next year. I love his game so I hope I am wrong.

60

(18 replies, posted in Male Players)

Hmm that is a tough prediction...

1. Djokovic
2. Zverev
3. Nadal
4. Thiem
5. Federer
6. Khachanov
7. Cilic
8. Coric
9. Nishikori
10. Anderson

I am not sure if Delpo will be able to compete at the higjest level. I almost put murray in there as he could climb back the rankings pretty fast. Tsitsipas could also get in there. And who knowsy maybe Stan will be back in the top10??

Probably taking a well deserved break. It is the off season after all.

But then, GO BHP for 2019.

It looks like you succeeded before we were there to help you!

Well it still needs to be officialized with Edu's UFTR update but I dont think Edu is going to win more than 50 points on you Tenedab so I can already tell you CONGRATS on that huge season Edgar. Well deserved title.

And props to Edu for an amazing season and for making this a big contest until the very end.

I can live with a joint best newcomer.

65

(27 replies, posted in Other Tournaments)

Guru is the most prestigious title pf the Yoda crew. Yoda Cups are the pillars of the group. And 320 points is in fact quite a lot. Matco became #1 in skywalker after only 4 tournaments, which is close to impossible.

You did great in Yoda and amazing in Vader. I just think Marco's achievement deserves the newcomer award. But that is only my opinion, only one vote.

66

(27 replies, posted in Other Tournaments)

My votes:
Tenedab for most improved player
Marco for best newcomer
Jamie's GSFT overall win at RG 18

67

(27 replies, posted in Other Tournaments)

But still, you are having a great week. And it ia quite likely that you finish top3 in Vader at the end of the season!
I will be in the Basel stadium today watching RBA try to beat Sasha.

Basel QF should be played before you get a PT. Maybe tomorrow!

Incredible performance Edu, well deserved!!

Impressive to be the overall website winners!!! Hats off

Great job. Well deserved first BIG title!

It starts on Sunday December 30th for half pf the tournaments. So make sure you enter all your picks on saturday at the latest. And since it is in Australia, their sunday is your saturday. So make sure you enter you picks on friday evening or saturday morning US time.

Hi Dtrain,

So sorry for your loss. My sincere condeleances to you and your family. It seems that your father was a good man and that he wil be missed.

Wish you a good recovery, hope your foot gets better and better. And don't forget that your health is far more important than fantasy tennnis!

The 2019 season begins first week of the year, so basically blink and we are there. Don't forget the first week has some sunday deadlines not to be missed.

Done. Was easy since we knew all the qualifiers and LL.
Problem arise when there are new unknown players in the draw.

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..
