You have a total of FOUR trades to use as you see fit. Any trade(s) need(s) to be made before the first tournament of the next week starts. (This is important because some tournaments will have Sunday main draw starts.) Otherwise the traded player will not earn points until the tournament after that. Trade deadlines will be posted in this thread!

Good luck! Trade wisely! ;)

dry....could you explain your comment about the Australian Open? Are we not allowed to make trades for that?

I was planning on...reserving some of my players right up for the Aussie Open......

I think he was trying to say if you make a trade after the start of the Aussie Open, you are too late since it's the last event in the contest.

Yes, but I deleted the sentence because it made less sense than Sarah Palin. :o

Not sure when the deadline is exactly so better do this now in case...

Trade 1: Soderling OUT, Serena IN
Trade 2: Nadal OUT, Dementieva IN
Trade 3: Kleybanova OUT, Isner IN
Trade 4: Bammer OUT, Gasquet IN

I won't be surprised if Serena doesn't win a match next week...but gotta have her for later and this is all my trades!

Many thanks to Soderling, Kleybanova, and Bammer for the 3 points they combined to get me too!

May I change Kuznetsova IN to Serena IN while we're still before the deadline, or do I need to use another trade if I want to do that? If it doesn't take another trade, I'd like to change. :)

OK now, time to enter the TAT Land of Lost Causes. And, please note that, unlike TAT Contest Blanche DuBois dry- I whine for a reason. The skank draw gods have screwed with me mightily. At least for the moment, I'm only seein' one real trade option here. SO......

Trade 1- Cilic out (for this week only), Berdych (:hyst:) in (really, REALLY for this week only.)

(But, HEY!!!!!!!! AT least this way I'll have 3 trade options for the Aussie!!!! :cheesy:!!!!!!!!!)

Well, I already had Elena on my team. And now I've changed my mind and gone away from adding Vika (she's failed to many times for me since last Australian Open).

So one of the new rules is first one done trading wins right?

Whether my strategy works or not at least I can say it was unique - taking the top 4 men in Doha and all men on my A team, then using my trades to get two A women this week for Sydney - which of course meant I had to use all my trades. Of course, I wouldn't be surprised if Serena chokes this week (less like without Henin looming in round 2 of course.)

Although having trades available in case is nice, I gotta admit I feel so much more relaxed now that I'm out of trades...no more stressing over which D guy has the best chance of winning a couple matches this week.

the good thing about having trades left is that if you're well out of the lead, you can pick unusual picks for the AO and if they come through you win.

It worked for me last year. I was well behind and chose Nadal and Roddick for the AO. Most people had Federer and Murray.

Well that came back and bit me in the ass about as hard as possible. My original trade 1 that Moose was responding to was Davydenko for Azarenka. I later reconsidered (since Azarenka faced Lisicki in the first rund in Brisbane, plus Caro will be #4 seed in Melbourne as opposed to Vika's #7 (or thereabouts). So what happens? Vika wins and Caro loses to Na Li, who was miserable last week, and whom I just traded out to make room for Caro!!!:mad:

Plus Monfils pulls out after the deadline. This contest is a wholesale disaster.
