    TFT: THRNY How It Works

    You are invited to participate in 2009 TAT Fantasy Tennis Contest
    "The Hard Road to New York" (THRNY)

    It will encompass six (6) ATP tournaments leading up to, but NOT including, The U.S. Open.

    Teams

    Your team must consist of 12 ATP players from the top 100 men on the ATP Tour. You will have 150 credits to spend on your 12-man team.

    The current top 100 players on the ATP tour are divided into 4 categories. Each player is priced according to his ranking. You must purchase three (3) players from each category.

    Click here to post your team.

    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.

    To view the players and their prices, click here.

    When complete, a team could look something like this:

    Cat-A: Nadal (29), Simon (24), Roddick (26)
    Cat-B: Robredo (15), Ferrero (9), Lopez (9)
    Cat-C: Garcia-Lopez (7), Moya (7), Hernandez (7)
    Cat-D: Gimeno-Traver (5), Granollers (5), Martin (5)
    Total: 148

    Each player on your team will be awarded points depending on how deep he goes in each tournament. The team you choose is supposed to last you the entire contest, and you only get FOUR (4) trades!

    Tournaments:

    Indianapolis Tennis Championships
    Rogers Cup
    Western & Southern Financial Group Masters
    Countrywide Classic
    Legg Mason Tennis Classic
    Pilot Pen Tennis

    Trades:

    If you feel that any player on your team is dead weight (performing poorly), injured, or you just don't want them on your team anymore, you are allowed to trade him for someone else who you feel is more adequate to fulfill your team's job (help you win, of course. )

    You are allowed up to FOUR (4) trades during the six-tournament contest.

    Trades should be made during the week BEFORE the tournament starts.

    If your trades are not submitted by the tournament's trade deadline, that trade will not go into effect until the following week.

    To make a trade, please click here to post your team with the new player included.

    Remember: YOU MUST ALWAYS HAVE THREE (3) PLAYERS PER CATEGORY ON YOUR TEAM, AND YOU CAN NEVER HAVE SPENT MORE THAN 150 CREDITS.

    The responsibility of finding out who will be playing which of these events rests solely on your shoulders. The team you have at the start of each tournament is the team you're playing with.

    Should your team fall in the nether regions of a TAT lake, so to speak, or if you just want to complain or have a drink to drown your sorrows, feel free to do so in the THRNY Lounge

    If you have any questions regarding anything in the contest, please click here

    Your team must be posted before the scheduled start of main draw play in Indianapolis, which begins Monday, July 20, 2009.
