The Rebel Alliance Cup is now in its second year, this is a team competition, USA v Rest of the World. The top 8 scores in GSFT from each team are used in the competition.

The USA are the current holders of the Cup after winning the inaugural competition in 2018.

Newbie here
When can we start selecting our AO team?

I believe the draw is on 10th January, so from then on it will be ready on this site and on tennisdrawchallenge

Happy New Year everyone, yes it's great that people are seeing TDC as an alternative. Hope we can keep it running if not improve it.

Thanks Edu!

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

I'd like to point out that I finished 7th despite missing 7 tournaments, but I'd only be drawing attention to myself...

LOL @ Charles

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.
