Greetings, TATers. Welcome to Green Acres, TAT's annual grass court fantasy tennis competition.

Pick Your Team
You MUST select twelve players between the ATP and WTA (six from each tour), to be chosen from five categories. Each category contains a segment of the current top-100 ranked players(*).

For the ATP/WTA selection, you need to...
Pick THREE players from category A,
FOUR from category B,
TWO from categories C and D
and ONE from category E.
When complete, a team could look something like this.
Cat-A: Federer, Williams S., Cilic
Cat-B: Edmund, Shapovalov, Osaka, Sharapova
Cat-C: Fucsovics, Vesnina
Cat-D: Vesely, Pera
Cat-E: Riske
It is completely up to YOU how you distribute your six ATP and six WTA picks. If you want to fill up the A list with three ATP players, that is your choice/risk. The mission is to find the right balance.

(*) New for 2019: In past versions of Green Acres, the E category consisted of the WTA and ATP players ranked 81-100, and you can pick one player from this category,. These rules remain in place for 2019, with one exception. We are introducing the concept of a "Wild Card" player. A Wild Card is any player who does not appear in the rankings from 1-100. You may pick a Wild Card for your player. If you think you have spotted the next Roger Federer or Serena Williams, but they are currently ranked somewhere in the 100's or beyond, you now have the option to put that player on your team. You may trade Wild Card players as you would any other player, but you are limited to no more than one Wild Card player on your roster for any given week. The Wild Card is optional. If you want to pick a player from the E group listing, you may do so.

Remember the most important rule! Your team must include six ATP men and six WTA women at all times. If you end up with an inaccurate gender balance as a result of trades (e.g., seven men and five women), your trade will be cancelled, but you will still have used those trades.

The Deadline
Your initial team is due before the scheduled start of play for a main draw match for week 1's tournaments -- come rain, shine or monkeys from Jupiter. You must post your team in the "Post Your Team Here" thread. Any and all entries posted at a later time or in the wrong thread(s) will NOT be accepted.

Trades
Should certain players fall (seriously) short of expectations, there will be SIX ATP/WTA trades for you to use to get your team back in contention.
As always, any trades need to be made in the week BEFORE the next tournament starts, otherwise the traded player will not earn points until the tournament after that. There will be a "Trades" thread once the competition has started.
Again, please remember that your team must include six ATP men and six WTA women at all times.

The Points, The Tournaments, The Players
The next post lists the tournaments which make up the contest. There are four weeks of tournaments over the five-week contest (Wimbledon, of course, takes two weeks). The posts after that lists the players in each of the categories.

And Then?
Whatever happens, we can sit down and talk about it in a civilized manner in the Strawberry Lounge thread.

Oh, and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask in the this thread.
Best of luck!
