Awesome find, Adunar! smile

BHP, did you get the email from the ATP confirming that they will not be doing a draw challenge this year?  I was going to share it, but just assumed everybody got the same email.

I can't imagine that they have any good reason at all for not doing it.

Re: 2014 R2D2 Phoenix Crown - A New Hope

I didn't receive anything Arvis sad . I sent three emails about it though, nevermind.

Hope this fantasy WTA draw competition will be well balanced!

I did not get a freakin response either.  I sent at least 10 requests.  Please share this kind of stuff Arvis. 
Do not ass-u-me.

Re: 2014 R2D2 Phoenix Crown - A New Hope

Me three.....looks like Arvis, Edu and me made an "ass" out of "u" and "me!"

I'm guessing they want to save from giving out the big prizes or something, or maybe they now have a solid fan base and are going to come up with a new game, maybe one that covers the whole ATP World Tour. wink

Re: 2014 R2D2 Phoenix Crown - A New Hope

You might end up getting 10 e-mails yet BHP....maybe they think you have a BIG gun or something mate.

I really hope there is a silver lining to them dropping the draw challenge, they should have a year round Fantasy comp on the ATP website I reckon, most fans visit there anyway for results etc so it would make sense.

As soon as it comes out I'll put the draw into to the table and send to google drive so you can download it, you will only send it back to me once I email my picks to Adunar and BHP

Re: 2014 R2D2 Phoenix Crown - A New Hope

Hi everyone !
Posting from France for the first time here. I was looking for an alternative way to keep playing the Draw Challenge (I still don't understand why it has been stopped by the ATP website, I've been playing it for three years !) and fortunately I found your forum, which actually seems pretty cool.
Indian Wells is about to begin now and I can't wait anymore to have a look and analyse the draw to do some predictions (it'll come out around midnight for me) =P

Can anyone explain me what I'm supposed to do to take part in it (I've already read the front page instructions, but I don't want to make a mistake). Here is the mail I'll use to participate (I hope it's still time to do so) : saugrin.ghislain@neuf.fr

Re: 2014 R2D2 Phoenix Crown - A New Hope

Hi Betclik,

nice to see another french speaker around here (i'm from Switzerland).

You will find a small but dedicated to tennis community here. We come from all around the world (USA, Canada, New Zealand, Serbia, Brazil, Switzerland, England.. hopefully I don't forget anyone).

We play a couple different fantasy tennis game. We used to play the ATP draw challenge, we play the GSFT competition of this website, we play the FTT competition (fantasytennistour.com) as well as the topelican wta fantasy tennis game. Now we're also into the WTA draw challenge. We have our private leagues in every single of these competitions which means we have rankings, stats for our small group of players. We call ourselves the "Yoda Crew" ;9 . You will find a certain starwars pattern around here for the competitions' nicknames.

Here on th forums, we like to discuss a lot about everyday ATP matches, predictions, stats, strategies for different games..etc.

If Edu agrees to take you on board then we're glad to welcome you. For all our different competitions, you will need to reach 50 posts in these forums in order to be invited. But that will be fast if you're into it.

Re: 2014 R2D2 Phoenix Crown - A New Hope

Looks like we might get a few ATP bracket players keen to join us huh. wink

You have to make 50 posts in the threads on GSFT first Betclik, this group of ours is known as the Yoda Crew and we run several different Fantasy Tennis comps throughout the year.

Maybe you could still make a bracket and run it as a ghost draw alongside those of us in the R2D2 Phoenix Crown, what do you all think guys????....rules are rules but is there some way Betclik could have some fun in the Indian Wells tourney without being a qualified member of the Yoda Crew?

EDIT: Beat me to it eh Arnaud, you forgot Australia mate. wink....it would be cool to have a Frenchman on board in Yoda. big_smile

I think that if he's eager to post here in the future and play with us, it would be a shame to force him to miss the first event and lose any contention for the final R2D2 crown... wink
