View Full Version : AMitS IV: How it's Played

12-29-2009, 11:25 AM
Welcome to the fourth annual installment of the A Month in the Sun (AMitS) TAT Fantasy Contest! Below you will find all of the information you need to assemble, post, manage, and complain about your team. :)

Picking Your Team
To enter the AMitS TAT Fantasy Contest, you need to assemble a team consisting of TWELVE players. Of those twelve players, six must be from the ATP and six must be from the WTA. Any team with too many men or women will not be included in the competition.

To view the players and categories, go to the Player Categories (http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15920)thread.

You must choose a specific number of players from each of the categories available to you. From category A you must pick FOUR players, from category B you must pick THREE playes, from categories C and D you must pick TWO players. From the last category, E, you pick ONE player.

It is up to YOU to decide how you spread your WTA and ATP player picks. If you want to pick four WTA players for your category A picks, that's your choice. It would leave you with just the two WTA picks for the remaining four categories.

Cat-A: Nadal, Safina, Jankovic, S. Williams
Cat-B: Sharapova, Rezai, Monfils
Cat-C: Peer, Kohlschreiber
Cat-D: Starace, Clement
Cat-E: Gulbis

As you can see, the team consists of six ATP players and six WTA players. As long as you make sure it's 50/50 ATP WTA, it's fine by us. Part of the challenge for you is finding the right balance. :)

Important New Rule
Your initial team cannot duplicate another participant's team. It will be your responsibility to ensure that your team does not duplicate another participant's team. If there are two duplicate entries, the earliest entry will be accepted, while the duplicate entry will be rejected.

Tournament Points and Official Tournament Web Sites
Prior to posting your team, you may want to check to see who is playing where and examine the different point values for various events. The AMITS points structure and tournament Web sites may be found in the Tournament Points and Web Sites (http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15927) thread.

Making Trades
You get FOUR trades. Any trade needs to be made before the first tournament of the next week starts, otherwise the traded player will not earn points until the tournament after that. This is important because main draw play for some tournaments will begin on Sundays. There will be a It's Time to Trade! (http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15922) thread once the competition has started.

Any Questions?
If you have any questions about that contest that are not answered here, please feel free to post it in the Ask Questions Here (http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15928) thread.

Now what?
Grab a pen and a piece of paper (or just open a new tab and prepare to reply ;)) and select your team! All categories can be found in the Players Categories thead. Just remember: FOUR category A picks, THREE category B picks, TWO category C and D picks and ONE pick from category E. Six boys, six girls.

Then, feel free to stay in touch with the other participants in the Melbourne Lake Lounge (http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15921).

Good luck! :D
