See you next year Martin, you had a nice year in Vader by the way.

Will you be playing Fantasy Tennis League next year?

Lovely, thanks Tono. Lots of great performances in 2018.

It will soon be time to retire to my secret training camp where I can plot my 2019 campaign.

2018 Race

After the completion of the ATP competitions, the final POTY standing are:

tenedab 10
Edu 10
Marco19 9
Murreee 8
Tennis Elbow 8
HundredTennisStats 6
Tono 4
Mike 2
Adunar 1
Spotec 1

So, we have a tie for Player of the Year between tenedab and Edu, and it is just as well we agreed a clear set of rules at the end of last year. This means that the UFTR Rankings system decides the overall winner, and while Edu hasn't yet announced the final tally, tenedab has a clear margin in the rankings and so claims the title.

Congrats tenedab on a consistent season!

Well done to everyone who made it on the board, it's easy to see how competitive the Yoda Crew is these days, expecting another tight one in 2019!

Oh, I didn't realise BHP did well, 'cause he's so shy and retiring lol

Hard to argue with this Murreee. Marco absolutely dominated the Yoda Cup and impressed people. But you have a wider resume and competed with us in all comps.

My feeling is you both had standout seasons for your first full seasons, hence my vote for a joint award - unusual, but fair.

Yep, it was an impressive Vader season for you guys at the top, very high quality picking, you ended up a good 5-6,000 points above some accomplished team players. Spotec deserves a shout too I think for a well managed campaign and late burst.

Most improved player I would actually go with Marcus/HTS - two 2nd placed finishes in Obi Wan and Vader - I would call it a breakout year for him
Best newcomer - don't think it's possible to pick between Marco & Murreee, they each bagged a major title, I would favour a joint win.
Performance - Hooray for me - the RG win feels bigger

Close battle for the prestigious R2D2 award! Sounds like Edu is in the box seat

LOL thanks Edu

Also worth mentioning that tenedab was the overall winner of WTA teams on TDC and Edu was the overall winner of WTA brackets on TDC, so it wasn't just us they beat, they beat everybody!

2018 Race

After the conclusion of the Rey and Padme competitions on the WTA side, the current POTY standings are:

tenedab 9
Marco19 9
Tennis Elbow 8
Edu 5
Tono 4
Murreee 3
Mike 2
Adunar 1

tenedab levels with Marco19 and looks likely to get into double figures when we get the results of the last 2 competitions, Obi-Wan and Vader. The only other player capable of getting into double figures is Edu, so POTY is now a 2 horse race.

Thanks stats man, big congrats to Edu and the other winners!

Well, that didn't take long. Pliskova loses therefore tenedab takes the Padme title.
Congratulations t-dab! You've had a signature year and deserve to get one of the big titles.

You're 16th in Vader, 11th in Padme. You can see all these rankings in the Jedi Masters Group section of the website.
Go to Jedi Masters and click on Overall.

Sorry to hear that Dtrain. Look forward to competing with you next year.

Thanks Arvis, yes it's Pliskova v Pavs and CSN v Gasparyan, otherwise identical teams, not so great for me, I need a very specific outcome.
Either way it's been a great tussle this season Edgar, whatever happens we're 1 and 2 on the TDC site, with Arnaud and Jenny also currently in the top ten, so the Yoda Crew are representing in WTA Teams this year (again).

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.

Some serious SCW in Beijing for Tennis Elbow. Well done to the Wozniacki pickers.

Hooray! Boy, that was close, Edu was one win away. Maybe he'll get a consolation or two this season?

teehee, thought it was worth a try

As a group we actually did pretty good in Wuhan, getting all 4 surprise semi-finalists between us. Well done dwight and Arvis on getting the finalists, fine picking.

By mid-week I was feeling good about making some ground up on tenedab in Wuhan, then looked across at the Tashkent results and had a feeling of doom as Gasparyan slowly but inevitably carved her way through the draw

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