    Put your team together starting Wednesday

    The Hard Road to New York game threads will be online by Wednesday (PST) at which time you'll have 5 days to put your team together.

    I have to wait for updated ATP rankings following Wimbledon.
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    Stupid question - have you outlined the rules for this yet? I was looking around, but couldn't find anything on how this contest will work...

    thx...

    We did a fantasy tennis contest leading up to the French Open (called the Slide into Paris). I don’t know if it will work exactly the same way, but it is still in the Contest Archives section if you want to get a feel for it.
    This one would probably give you the best idea of how it worked (hence the title )-
    Slide into Paris: How it works

    Nobody will recognize me as an international assassin in this clever disguise.

    Thanks, Jadesa. You got it exactly right.

    The only difference in The Hard Road to New York is that it will encompass 6 tournaments (rather than 8) and you'll be allowed 3 substitutions (rather than 4).

    The ATP has updated the rankings and I'll be putting everything together Monday and Tuesday and making the necessary posts Tuesday night. Everything will be there to explain the game. But, as always, if you have any questions at all don't hesitate to ask.

    I hope you join us, Jack.

    I'm in! Thanks for voting in my suggestion as the official name of the contest.

    It's a good title, GVGirl!

    I got the threads up a day early. Pick your teams, have fun, and good luck to everyone!

    Gasquet will NOT be part of my team.

    This will ensure his success this summer!

    Hey Sebastien
    It seems like you're on the right track there. 2 tournements in 4 weeks. The man is finally getting his act together now, you must be pleased. Your patience is starting to pay off. All good things come to those that wait Confucious (sp!) said
    Cheers,

    I knew leaving him off my team would do it ... I just wish we could get tennis on TV in this country. I could watch that backhand all day long.
