    And.... WE'RE OFF!!!

    Thanks to everyone who decided to participate in TAT's first women's fantasy tournament. We have 30 players, the most we've ever had for a TAT fantasy contest.

    If you were too late to get in for the first week of the contest, don't fret. You can still play. Just make sure your team is posted in the "Post Your Team Here" thread before the start of the text tournament (Luxembourg).

    If you posted a team, please go back and check your team as its listed in the thread. I made some minor adjustments to point totals and player point allocations that were incorrect. But please, if I edited your post, double-check MY math to ensure we have everything correct.

    Also, keep in mind that you are allowed THREE substitutions. Please note any substitutions clearly in your original team post so I can track them easily each week.

    Good luck to all! And if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. We'll have the scores for Week 1 posted asap after the tournament's conclusion.

    Dry

    P.S.--A special thank you to everyone who spelled Sprem's name correctly. Apparently we don't have any dyslexics in the contest...

    We'll see about that. After my horrendous showing in the last fantasy contest, I'm long overdue for a good result...

    Even if I know in the bottom of my heart that I could only win something like this by complete accident... LOL!

    Re: And.... WE'RE OFF!!!

    Can I just say a big fat "Thank You" to Dry for heading this up! I'm going to play this thing and not worry about scoring it! How much fun is that?!

    Thanks, Dry!
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    I'm still reeling from forgetting to make my substitution in time during the Hard Road to New York. It cost me 100 points. I will never get over it.


    NEVER!


    (ok - I am taking this a little too seriously)

    Good luck to all! But I'll have you know that I was not satisfied with 3rd place in the HRNY contest. I have a feeling I'll be riding Vera Dushevina to the top of the results!! (So to speak) ;D

    I didn't know Justine was a member of our board...

    In that case, screw you! [smiley=flipoff.gif]

    Re: And.... WE'RE OFF!!!

    I wanted to double-check my original team before the thing began but couldn't find a god-damn draw to save my life! >

    How's that for kind and friendly?! :

    I don't know what's been going on the past few days, but whenever I tried to open the .pdf of the Beijing draw at the WTA site, my Internet Explorer would crash. It was strange. Did anyone else have problems?

    I had forgotten that Moose posted the draw on TEB. So I finally ended up breaking down and checking it at www.tenniscorner.net. But whatever you do, don't go there without the mother of all pop-up blockers. My system blocked an intrusion attempt there several months ago. I try to go there as little as possible.

    At least you have four players in the contest this week, kirkus. That's better than none.
