This year "The Slide into Paris" will encompass 5 ATP tournaments leading up to, but NOT including, Roland Garros.

Your team will consist of 8 ATP players from the top 100 men on the ATP Tour. You will have 100 credits to spend on your 8-man team. The top 100 players on the INDESIT ATP ranking are divided into 4 categories. Each player is priced according to his ranking. You'll purchase 2 players from each category.

Each player on your team will be awarded points depending on how deep they go in each tournament.

SUBSTITUTIONS:
You are allowed up to 2 subsititutions during the 5 tournament contest. Substitutions can be made at any time, but a substitution will not go into effect until the following tournament. To make a substitution, sell a player back (adding his price to your remaining credits) then simply buy another player. YOU MUST ALWAYS HAVE 2 PLAYERS PER CATEGORY ON YOUR TEAM AND YOU CAN NEVER HAVE SPENT MORE THAN 100 CREDITS.

Tournaments:
MONTE CARLO, BARCELONA, ESTORIL, ROME, AND HAMBURG.

Categories and Player Pricing:
CATEGORY A: Players 1-15. Price 16-30 credits each.
CATEGORY B: Players 16-40. Price 9-15 credits each.
CATEGORY C: Players 41-70. Price 6-8 credits each.
CATEGORY D: Players 71-100. Price 5 credits each.


It is your responsibility to "scout" the players on your team and insure that they're playing in each specified tournament. The team you have at the start of each tournament is the team you're playing.


Your team must be posted by the start of Monte Carlo.
