The first week of professional grass court tennis has concluded, and the scores have been tabulated and cross-checked. Of the players who won this week, grass court fiend Alison Riske appears on eleven contestant rosters. If you are looking for the contestants who did not have Riske in the lineup, you will find them us at or near the bottom of the list below. Caroline Garcia and Adrian Mannarino were each picked by two contestants, who you can find further up in the list. But Matteo Berrettini, who went unpicked during the recent The Slide Into Paris despite having performed well there, remained unpicked in this contest, even though he is showing himself to be a pretty good grass court player as well.

First place for the week goes to tenedab, one of three contestants to have two tournaments winners on the roster, JazzNU, who also had two tournament winners, is in second, with patrick closely behind in third. There is a slight drop off to the rest of the pack, but most contestants managed to put up a respectable score. The other contestant with two tournament winners was Ribbons, whose performance was quite impressive considering that nearly half her roster did not play this week. If those bench-warmers manage to show up this week, Ribbons risky (riske?) strategy may well pay off.

All scores are below. Yoort, who is running the contest with me, has put together some additional statistics which we will publish along with the standings. You can find yoort's recap at https://imgur.com/a/xPXiJhs

There is a long way to go, with two more weeks of warm up tournaments before Wimbledon. Best of luck to all contestants.

First week and I am only 1000 points behind.
How far back will I be by Wimby?

... and so far the answer is a big fat nope. Batting below 50% after one day of play.

Then again, serves me right for not following tennis closely enough to remember Svitolina's knee issues.

Week 2 has finished, and the contestants had a mixed bag in identifying winners during this week. Halle winner Roger Federer appeared on eleven rosters, unsurprisingly; and four contestants added French Open, and now Birmingham champion, Ashleigh Barty in trades. But none of us had Mallorca winner Sonya Kenin. Nor did any contestant use the new wild card feature to add London winner Feliciano Lopez. Regardless, we have some high scores for the week. Jeff in TX won the week, with ponchi101 recovering from a disastrous first week to take second, and New England Nitemare in third. Fourth place finisher yoort was over 100 points behind third, so kudos to the three weekly winners for separating themselves from the field.

In the overall standings, New England Nitemare is proving to be an up-and-coming force in TAT fantasy tennis, following up a second place finish in the recent The Slide Into Paris with the overall lead after week 2. Last week's leader tenedab drops one spot into second, with Jeff in TX taking third, thanks to this week's winning score. One more week of prelims to be followed by Wimbledon, which offers even the worst of us an opportunity to make up ground.

The overall standings are below. Yoort's additional analysis can be found at https://imgur.com/a/xPXiJhs

We look so much like the WTA. The top five are separated by 360 points. Nothing.

The preliminaries are over, and the deciding tournament is about to take place. This week's scores were relatively lower than the first two weeks, due to fewer A players playing and many contestants saving their trades for Wimbledon rather than spend them on tournaments offering a quarter of the points for a tournament winner. Seven contestants were able to get victory points for Karolina Pliskova at Eastbourne; three contestants scored a victory with men's Eastbourne winner Taylor Fritz, and no contestant saw fit to add Antalya winner Lorenzo Sonego to their D squad.

The only contestant with two tournament winners was mysterX, who was the weekly winner. In second was JazzNU (Fritz), and Drop-shot finished third.
In the overall contest, New England Nitemare remains in first place. Drop-shot moved from fourth place into second overall, and Jeff In TX remained in third. The final medal positions are wide open, available to the contestant who best manages their A players, or identifies the underdog player who will make a semi-final (or greater) run, or does both of these things.

The complete scoreboard is below. Best of luck to all contestants.

The dust is still settling after the epic Men's Wimbledon final earlier today, and I'm sure one of the first thoughts which entered into your minds was "How did this impact the final Green Acres standings?"

Well, the answer is, it absolutely ZERO impact on the final scores.

In fact, the medal positions were fixed after the Semifinals, because quite a few contestants had both Novak and Roger on their squads, and those contestants had already risen above the rest. And women's winner Simona Halep had no impact on the final outcome, having gone unpicked by all contestants. But two contestants added Serena Williams to their roster, and for one of them, it made all the difference.

The mighty Omegadoom was the only contestant to have three finalists on his roster, and won the Wimbledon scoring convincingly. Miles finished in a distant second, and mysterX, the other Serena picker, finished in third.

And now, here are your winners for Green Acres 2019:

In first place, Omegadoom takes the gold medal. :woot::woot::woot:

Finishing second, New England Nitemare takes silver. :woot::woot:

In third, the bronze medal goes to patrick. :woot:

Omegadoom won despite not placing higher than 10th overall for any of the first three weeks. This contest really does come down to Wimbledon. New England Nitemare follows up a silver in The Slide Into Paris with another silver, coming very close this time but getting overtaken at the finish line. The third place battle was very close, with patrick winning by a very small margin over Miles and Jeff in TX. Enjoy your well-deserved medals.

Big thanks to everyone who participated in the contest. :tatrocks:. I also want to thank yoort for help in scoring the contest, and for the additional commentary. :overhead_clap:. You can find yoort's wrapup at https://imgur.com/a/xPXiJhs

And as always, thanks to the contest staff for helping make the whole contest go smoothly.

The full scoreboard is below. Take care, and see you on the Hard Road to NY.
