UPDATED

Not much change in UFTR but a lot of change in the Race! I admit that I thought I was going to lose #1 after this update but I haven't big_smile

Big congrats to Arvis for jumping 3 spots up in the Race!

Marseille
BHP, Tenedab, and Snolly all had Goffin as SFist and Tsitsipas as finalist, which got them enough points for the three to share the win here.  That's yet another 13 point margin over last place, which is around what we usually get in 250s.  It was Dtrain who brought up the rear here, with him and Murree having no correct SFists.

Delray Beach
Another tournament where most of us struggled to make anything of note happen, and yet our winner Johnny managed to get 3 correct SFists!  Well done, Johnny!  That got him a final score of 28, 3 above second place Dwight and 11 more than last place, shared by Aiur and Arvis.

5. Arvis: -26 ↓6 ↓1 rank
-- HTS knocked off, barely, 1 point behind Arvis --

Yet another solid week for TE in this category.  He gained points on every single other Top 5 member here!  Nice job, Drivers, for inching a little further up.  Can she keep up her progress?

ATP 500 Standings
1. Dtrain: 52
2. Tenedab: -4 ↓4
3. Johnny: -9 NEW
4T. Tono: -10 NEW
4T. Dwight: -10 ↓7 ↓1 rank
-- Edu, Murree, Spotec knocked off --

Dtrain "won" Rio (inasmuch as you can call it winning) so he maintains his #1 spot here!  And yes, you're not hallucinating: that IS indeed Johnny Incognito in a Top 5.  How long will he stay there?

ATP Overall Standings
1. TE: 542

Hey, look, it's TE.  *yawn*  #notbitter

WTA

Dubai
Even though nobody correctly predicted Bencic to win, we still had some impressive scores here, with Adunar taking the title with a very fine total of 73!  That's a 27 point gap over last place spotec, but only 1 point over second place TE and Tenedab.  As this is our first WTA 1000/900, those three will lead the Top 5 in that category for a while!

Budapest
And as if his Dubai win wasn't enough, Adunar also won this one too!  Somehow, in a major dartboard tournament, he, as well as HTS and Edu, managed to correctly predict AVU as winner here and gain a huge amount of points!  Adunar finished with 41, which is a staggering and mindblowing victory margin of 41 over last place Arvis, who scored a total of no points at all because he is an idiot!  A season-ending result for Arvis if there ever was one and it came in a lowly 280.  Great, GREAT result for Adunar, though, who has to be flying high after these WTA results last week.

WTA 280 Standings
1. Adunar: 127 BOUNCE BACK
2. Spotec: -9 ↓9 ↓1 rank
3. TE: -10
4. Edu: -11 NEW
5. Tenedab: -16 ↓4 ↓1 rank
-- Arvis, Dtrain knocked off --

Adunar EXPLODES into the rankings here, making up in a big way for dropping off the rankings a few weeks ago after a poor Hua Hin.  Arvis went from 2nd place to 12th in the standings after missing Budapest.  Do your brackets, kids.

WTA 1000/900 Standings
1. Adunar: 73
2T. TE: -1
2T. Tenedab: -1
4. Arvis: -4
5. Dtrain: -7

It's just one tournament, but these are our WTA 1000/900 standings heading into the Sunshine Doubles!  I imagine these will be shaken up quite a bit after IW and Miami.

Overall Women's Standings
1. TE: 511
2. Adunar: -20 ↑16 ↑1 rank
3. Edu: -34 ↑2
4. Drivers: -39 ↓15  ↓2 ranks
5. Tenedab: -47 NEW
-- Spotec, Tono knocked off ---

Is it possible that TE could be getting some actual competition here soon?  If Adunar has more weeks like this, that will certainly be the case!


This is a perfect description of Rio, LOL

Hey, everyone, here is the first update of UFTR of the year. We have a new world #1 after the Australian Open! It's a very thin margin though, anything can happen going forward.

Huge congrats for all the award and title winners! And thanks, everybody!

What do you guys think about a 'Most big titles' award category? tongue

UPDATED

Sorry this last update took so long, guys. So now the 2018 fantasy tennis year is over.

Congratulations to Tenedab who finished #1 in the World in UFTR!

Tenedab really had a super consistent year. He has 32 weeks as #1 in UFTR and had 40 weeks in the race, being 32 and 35 (respectively) as his best and current streak as #1. He didn't lead the Race for only 3 weeks the whole year! He finished 3rd, 1st and 1st in brackets, teams and GSFT respectively, and finished 215 points in front of second place Edu. Out of the 5 big titles he won Padme!


All of the info is in the spreadsheet, so feel free to take a look at yours. Also, Surface Rankings is there too, Edu won Hard and Clay, HTS won Grass and Murrys won Indoors.

Thanks very much for one more great competitive year, everyone!

Thanks Edu
I'm gunning for a Top 3 finish in the race, you guys had better watch out!

You got it, just need to hang on through Paris now! haha

UPDATED

A lot of movement in UFTR, not so much in the Race.

Thanks very much, everybody! Very proud of this title, congrats to Drivers and Tene on their respective titles!

Lol, it worked the last time huh, Jamie?

I'd say it's hard to argue with what Charles said. Sharing a win is not the same as winning alone...

UPDATED

As I updated last time about a month ago, I turned the "Mover(s) of the week" in "Mover(s) of the month" big_smile.

UPDATED

Not much move from last week. Check the spreadsheet for more details.

Actually they are, Arnie. I updated everything (week by week, so I updated 4 times) but the movers of the week, I just didn't want to do it because it was gonna be even more work, but everything else is as usual. smile

UPDATED

Hello, everyone. I finally got the time to update UFTR, unfortunately I couldn't do the movers from week to week but everything else is there as normal. I'll try to update it every week like I used to do but can't promise haha. Thanks!

I don't know, Milo. I was hoping to have done it past Saturday but wasn't able to. I'll see if I get the time this week.

LOL, I couldn't even if I wanted to. Wait, let me just grab a hot potato, put it in my mouth and start speaking english! tongue

It was Mayer who won today, not Anderson unfortunately. Congrats to six Mayer pickers. Btw, interestingly nobody in this group picked the favorite Djokovic to win London.

Why didn't you pick him them? tongue

PS: That's a british accent on the youtube video and I'm brazilian lol
