Topic: OGFT 2016 - Rousseff Strikes Back

Hello everyone !

Welcome to the special edition for the Olympic Games!
The name is OGFT (inspired by GSFT as the rules are very similar): Olympic Games Fantasy Tennis - Rousseff Strikes Back 2016 edition

The rules are very similar to those of GSFT but with a few differences as the draw size is of 64 players instead of 128.

You are allowed to pick 6 players per draw 64 draw.
A maximum of 4 of them can be top 8 seeds and there must be at least one unseeded player in your team.

You earn points for each of your player winning a match:
1st round loss: -16 points
1st round win: 16 points
2nd round win: 16 points
3rd round win: 16 points
QF win: 24 points
SF win: 32 points
F win: 48 points
3rd place win: 24 points.

If an unseeded player reaches the QF, you win a bonus 32 points. If a 9-16 seed reaches the QF, you win a bonus 16 points.

Another major aspect is that you should also PREDICT THE 3 MEDALISTS. Your medalists must be on your teams as well.

If you corretly predicted a medalist (whether or not you predicted the right metal), you get +16 points for each of them and if you correctly predicted the metal (gold, silver, bronze), you win extra bonus points:
16 for bronze, 32 for silver, 48 for gold.

As you can count, a maximum of points per player is:
16 (R64) + 16 (R32) +16 (R16) + 24 (QF) + 32 (SF) + 48 (F) + 16 (predicted medalist) + 48  (correct metal) = 216. It can be 248 for an unseeded player (+32), 232 for 9-16 seeded player (+16).


You'll have to send me an e-mail with the title clearly indicating that you are sending me your picks so I don't see them on purpose before the picks close. You can use the forum emails as it directly lands in my mailbox.

There is a master spreadsheet:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ … sp=sharing

There is a rankings page, ATP and WTA setup pages for points as well as individual sheets for all of you. i will also add the two draw sheets once they are out so you can use it for your picks selection.


Of course, there are the 3 usual competitions: Women and Men singles as well as Overall combined (men+women).

You can also play doubles with another Yoda Cup member. So it is your singles men's and single women's team which will be combined with your partner in order to enter another competition!

You have to be a Yoda Crew member to participate.

BHP & Dtrain [USA TRAIN]

The "typical" team would be: 4 top8, 1 9-16 seed and one unseeded. Of course, you can have less top8 and as many unseeded players as you want.

Re: OGFT 2016 - Rousseff Strikes Back

What happens if we have an odd number of yoda players... not fair to someone who can't find a partner...

Re: OGFT 2016 - Rousseff Strikes Back

If you want me, I would be happy to team up Dwight!

Re: OGFT 2016 - Rousseff Strikes Back

Alright let's do it!
I guess we should make sure we don't overlap our teams too much... will be weird! But good!!!

Re: OGFT 2016 - Rousseff Strikes Back

Sounds like fun, how are we going to pick doubles partners though, we could just pick our own as Dwight and Marcus have done, or we could pair up top and bottom from the current Yoda standings??

Perfect! Might be a challenge with the overlapping teams, I think we usually pick quite similar teams smile

Re: OGFT 2016 - Rousseff Strikes Back

I think we can all find partners.

But you have to find a partner for your mens team and another one (or same one) for your women's team.

This is the greatest prove of sportsmanship! Arnie is my biggest rival but also my friend and also the one that think just like me in fantasy. And by rival I absolutely not mean that I feel any angry or bad feelings towards him wink

Re: OGFT 2016 - Rousseff Strikes Back

So, we will have to try and pull the tail on the dog then huh. wink

Well, I will happily partner up with Jamie if he is keen to have me, however if he wants to play doubles (more like mixed doubles wink ) with Drivers I will understand since they are both from the UK.

What say you TE?

If TE and Drivers do team up then I will happily team up with my Aussie cousin Snolly if he decides to play OGFT.
