Welcome, one and all, to the annual edition of A Month in the Sun!!

This is where TAT's Fantasy Tennis season gets started, and we get the chance to get rid of that off-season rustiness and, perhaps, get an idea of where 2017 will be headed.

For those of you who are new to the game, or perhaps even to TAT: as many people can enter as they like. One team per person, though, and by all means: mingle!

Get to know the other players, find out what makes them tick, discuss the tournaments, complain about on-court clothing choices and get a drink (or two, or more if your choice goes down in flames) from our resident bartender.

Here's wishing all of us the best of luck!

Federer, Gasquet, and Ferrer all in the B group...seems so weird.

And Ferrer shows why he doesn't deserve to be an A player quite quickly. Don't know why I trusted him, probably just because he was in the B group. I guess I should be happy he actually won one match.

Yup. Woke up this morning in time to watch the final set. Didn't think Ferrer actually played badly, he just didn't seem to be able to find the extra gear he needed and Thompson clearly thrived on the support from the crowd.

Ugh...now Cilic too. The men are letting me down big time...down to one man left (Murray). My women are great so far as I still have five...and the only one I lost (Safarova) was to one of my other players (Strycova.)

Hmmm...I knew Del Potro wasn't playing AO, but why did I think he was still playing Auckland next week?

Well, could be worse. I still have 6 players alive. For now.

As for Serena...yeah, I picked her. I had doubts, but in that field I couldn't really pick against her either. oops.

Woz, Kerber, and A-Rad all go down...the carnage! I'm now down to Andy and Cornet.

That was not pretty, JoKo (24-point TB WTF), but thank you anyway!

Gambling on Sydney qualifiers didn't pay off. Pffffffffft. (Marchenko and Allertova.)

Thanks Dominic, a quarterfinal loss to Daniel Evans was what we were hoping for when we traded for you. I'm going to pretend I don't know you're Austrian again.

Couple big names dropped today. And since week 1 was basically everyone with Djokovic at the top of the board...I think this thing just opened up a good deal.

Also, I'm glad I was behind and traded A-Rad out for Serena as a "desparation" catch up move :rolleyes: Funny to think of that move that way.

In hindsight, that was my only right trade. The rest would've been better gone unused. Raonic for Djokovic, Woz for Kasatkina and the jury is still out on the Troicki for Federer.

Well, 2 rounds down and only half of my team is still alive. I lost 2 in the 1st round and 4 in 2nd round. I don't think my chances of moving up in the standings is looking so hot.

I still have six...but when I check the draw today four are playing each other...boo :)

This was 100% what I was expecting when I added Mischa Z.
