You have a total of FOUR trades to use as you see fit. Any trade(s) need(s) to be made in the week BEFORE the next tournament starts, otherwise the traded player will not earn points until the tournament after that. Unless the next tournament is the Australian Open, of course, in which case you'd simply be too late. Trade deadlines will be posted in this thread!

Good luck! Trade wisely ;)

Now that I have the thread ready...I forget what my trade was gonna be. Think it involved one of the Williams. I'll post it later ;)

Trade 1:
Ivanovic OUT
Serena IN

Every time I take Serena in one of these contests she does terrible, so I apologize in advance

Trade 2:
Wawrinka OUT
Soderling IN

Not a great choice, but there's not a whole lot in the B list this week that looks appealing.

When's the (approx) trade deadline?

Trade 2:
When's the (approx) trade deadline?

The trade deadline for this week is at the start of play in Hobart (Moorilla Hobart International) somewhere between 10 and 11 AM local time on January 11. I'll post the exact time as soon as the OOP is out. Keep this sunday start in mind everybody!
