Real name is Tomas...

When you use real names I get confused with the team name - like is Dwight "Dwight" or "DwightCharles" and so forth... Maybe you could update that info in a post...

Please understand that I was only suggesting a possible solution to help - I was not complaining - The TDC is an incredible site for tennis fans and extremely fun - It has become my most favorite pastime and being in the Jedi Masters group is the best..!!!

PS: Still rooting for Milo as the "Best Player in the World"

Thanks Tomas! Good idea about posting names as there are some in the group who have been with us for some time and we do not know their real names.

We could ask everyone to write up a short personal intro so that we get to know each other better.

BHP = Milo
Tono = Tony
Adunar -= Arnaud (Arnie)
Edu = Eduardo
HTS = Marcus
Arvis = Arvis?
Tennis Elbow = Jamie

The Roger and Dimitrov thing could not have been the site, they didn't withdrew, so something else happened there...

Re: 2018 ULTIMATE FANTASY TENNIS RANKINGS! - UFTR

we are all in the same boat with this issue and it seems to balance out...mostly. We have had some LL do really well and even win tournaments. But bottom line is once the first match starts we close the picks and can not reopen them without letting players change all their picks. we use sites like...
https://www.flashscore.com/tennis/ to see if someone withdraws...please use this resource

I agree with Murreee, this is getting ridiculous. In Rotterdam, I had Roger and Grigor in the finals but somehow the site had me down at Berdych and Zverev. I brushed that off. Now, in Delray Beach, Kyrgios withdrew like a day before. I redid all of my picks to how I liked them, and I just checked for the first time, somehow John Smith and Darian King are on my team. I DID NOT PICK EITHER ONE OF THESE GUYS. It's getting to the point where it's not fun to play along, and when it's not fun, there's no point in doing it.

I know it's annoying Aiur, but we all suffer at some point throughout the season and it is what it is, John Smith was the LL who replaced Milos Raonic, I think Raonic then got moved to Kevin Anderson's spot when he withdrew and Darian King replaced Nick Kyrgios when he pulled out.....messy week in Delray.

I don't know if this will help, but I make all my picks for brackets and teams as early as I can, then closer to the start of each tournament I check all the draws and live score websites to see if there has been any changes in the draw etc.....I do this for two reasons, one is to update the draw ASAP on TDC before the tournament starts so everybody will know and the other is so I might not be caught out myself......unfortunately when players pull out AFTER the picks have closed that is just plain old bad luck and we all have to ride with it, Delray Beach is only a 250 tourney so as annoying as it is, there shouldn't be too much impact.

Oh my God, some of these real names are freaking me out, like when in primary school you learn what your teachers name is.

Hahaha, entertaining discussion. I think that if Edu = Eduardo, and it's pronounced as in Spanish, then it would be something like this: E (as the initial letter "e" in error in English) + DU (as the word "do" in English).
What do you think Edu, is it correct?

Re: 2018 ULTIMATE FANTASY TENNIS RANKINGS! - UFTR

That sounds good to me. But (serious question)would the Portuguese pronunciation be the same?
