Re: 2016/17 ULTIMATE FANTASY TENNIS RANKINGS!!!!

Re: 2016/17 ULTIMATE FANTASY TENNIS RANKINGS!!!!

Well it is delicate. The rule is NO RETRO. But the TDC website is made auch that retro is activated this may be why you thought all your points were included.

I am neutral about his. I have nothing against it but if you scored the 50 posts after the start of the Aussie Open, then the rules are the rules. We have always applied them and many of us had to do an almost full year like this, including myself or dwight for example. I wasnt happy about it either but those were the rules.

What do you guys think?

Re: 2016/17 ULTIMATE FANTASY TENNIS RANKINGS!!!!

Yes Spotec, you did!!! I've already looked back and my confusion arose because you were able to start with TDC before completing the 50 posts and still have the results taken into account; - something that I've also been able to do and which I appreciate very much. The 'anomaly' mentioned in the last post concerns the disruption to the authenticity of the Ultimate Tennis rankings caused by the exclusion of my AUS OPEN results! It really has made a huge difference to my ranking and others have moved up the rankings as a result.  Fair play??

Re: 2016/17 ULTIMATE FANTASY TENNIS RANKINGS!!!!

I think the sensible way forward would be to leave my AUS results out of the Yoda Cup as per requirements but to 'spirit' those results into the Ultimate Tennis Rankings in the interest of overall credibility for this fantastic new initiative. It's for the 'Board' to decide, I presume.........

Re: 2016/17 ULTIMATE FANTASY TENNIS RANKINGS!!!!

I'm not a board member but it's ok for me to include Drivers AO result into the ultimate ranking. Otherwise it will be more than 7 months before the ranking make any sense for her. It will create a little inconsistency between Yoda cup and ranking but I can live with that.

Re: 2016/17 ULTIMATE FANTASY TENNIS RANKINGS!!!!

ok everyone, after discussion here is what we're going to do:

We consider all points but spotec and drivers will have an asterisk in their names, meaning they didn't join in time, will be consider amateurs (fantasy wise) and can't be consider the real #1 because to be a "professional" you have to play the whole year. It's kinda sorta like golf. So basically we count their points but no eligibility for any titles regarding UFTR.

Re: 2016/17 ULTIMATE FANTASY TENNIS RANKINGS!!!!

Thanks Edu, and everyone else for taking the concerns  seriously. This is a good and realistic outcome from my point of view:- although I have a fair amount of experience with FTT/TDC for the men's game, where everything else is concerned I am very much an amateur. One of the most satisfying aspects of involvement in this group is the coaching that arises from the detailed and well informed comments and the opportunity to try to improve results. The latest GSFT experience has been a revelation!!!
Also, apologies Spotec if stirring things up has inadvertently messed up your rankings. If so, I really regret that.
Thanks again, so much, everyone involved. This truly is a very professional fantasy crew.
PS - I thought of heading this post THE RETURN OF THE JENI - but then I thought that would be too presumptuous! smile

Glad you like the outcome. We discussed about it and Edu came up with this good idea. Seemed fair and not (too) excluding. Yoda Crew is a very competitive league as you already know! Perhaps the toughest fantasy tennis league in the world!

Re: 2016/17 ULTIMATE FANTASY TENNIS RANKINGS!!!!

You're welcome Drivers (what's your real name? kkkkkk). And in Spotec's case he didn't join Yoda (in TDC) from the very first tournament of the year so that's why. The rules have to be applied for everybody

Great to have you 2 guys aboard. I noticed you played Dream Team like me and Dtrain, Spotec. We all finished in the Top Ten - we'll have to set up a mini-league for Wimbledon!

I insist that the Dream Team scores are added to the Ultimate Fantasy Rankings or the whole thing is a sham!
