When one or more of your players gets injured or falls ill, you are allowed to replace him/her/them with another player.

Any and all injury trades must always be made in the week BEFORE the next tournament(s). Any trades made after the start of the next tournament(s) will NOT be accepted. Any injury trade you make is permanent, so always try to make sure your injured/ill player isn't just taking a week off.

If you lose a player because of injure or illness you can post their replacement in this thread. You can also PM me your replacement if you so desire ;)

You can keep track of who's healthy and who's not in these threads:

The WTA Sick Bay (http://www.talkabouttennis.com/cgi-bin/TATv2/YaBB.pl?num=1167409394/4#4)
The ATP Sick Bay (http://www.talkabouttennis.com/cgi-bin/TATv2/YaBB.pl?board=TAATP;action=display;num=1167409463; start=4#4)

Any players added to these threads after the AMitS marker are eligible for replacement, provided they are on your team ;) I will also post the names of injured/ill players in this thread during AMitS.

Virginie Razzano has retired in Auckland with a lower back strain. One contestant, RandomSkan, has Virginie on his team.

Justine Henin-Hardenne has withdrawn from competition for the next couple of weeks at least while she deals with personal issues. We wish her well. We have, however, 23 people with Justine on their team!!!!

If you want to replace your injured/ill player, please let me know before the start of next week's tournaments. You can post your replacement in this thread, I'll handle it from there :)

Lleyton Hewitt - calf injury

Think I will hold onto him - have a feeling (which is probably 500% wrong) that he is going to make a strong run at the AO.

Maybe I will look like this " :-[ " after he loses to a rank outsider in the first round! *LOL*

Mr. Koffie, I have to replace two players... One male, one female, but in different categories.

Can I replace the female player with a male player in the same category, as long as I replace the male player in a lower category with a female player in the same category?

You bring up a good point, and one I should've entered into the rules more specific than I have. The idea is to replace whoever is injured with someone of both the same gender and category. You then, theoretically anyway, get replacements that are of equal strength based on the rankings. I have to deny your request based on the fact that other contestants who have only one injured player would miss the strategic opportunity to switch a gender location in their team which might deny them an advantage of sorts.

No paddles now, please :-/

You can post your replacement in this thread. You have just two days left before next week's tournaments start, so make sure to make your choice known before then.

Anybody who's late this week still has the chance to replace Justine (or any other injured/ill player for that matter) next week, but he/she will not start earning points untill the Oz Open.

Well I've been aware that I need to pick a new player, but I wanted to wait until next week's draws are out. I am heavily leaning towards Kim Clijsters, but I'm still debating. If I ask to replace Justine with Kim, can I change my mind before next weeks tournaments start? If that is okay, I would like to do that. I should know for sure as soon as the draws come out, though, so it won't be a long wait.

I'm also not taking any chances on Lleyton, so he's out of my team and replaced by Gasquet

@Charlie: no problemo. Just be sure to make any replacements a.s.a.p. You can still do so next week as well, but then your replacement only earns points during the Oz Open and not next week's tournaments.

I'm going to stick with Lleyton for now. I just read where they are calling his injury minor. I could still dump him before the AO, can't I if he is really hurt. I think the incident with Roger Rasheed shows that he's back to Being Irrascible Lleyton--no more Mr. Nice Guy for him

Right, last call for jsd, Martini4me, 3mlm and RandomSkan for this week. You can still replace your injured/ill player next week, but whoever you choose then won't earn you any points until the Oz Open. 't Would be a shame to waste a week, wouldn't it ;) Post your replacement in this thread, or pm me.

This thread and this week's replacement opportunities close when I wake up on this side of the world, which will be in about 7 hours from now. Hope you all make it!

RSkan blunders into TAT and observes that Razzano has stumbled into sick bay. "Ah", he muses, "a girl after my own heart".

Notwithstanding, he tosses the U and the T, obediently following the outcome to choose a replacement. He spins the wheel of fortune and reports that the arrow of chance falls on the shoulders of Vera Dushevina.

On his behalf, I thank the contest coordinators for drawing this to his attention and ask for this substitution to be enforced.
