    Re: 2017 AO SKAN Contest

    Oops = missed the revised Tier Titles - here's the revised QF Standings table. In the meantime, I'm pleased to have escaped the cellar, if not the bottom tier:

    This is a very interesting contest! I was certainly put out of the running by Pliskova... but it was fun to be up there while it lasted! I am still a bit confused about how the scoring works. If your player loses, do you lose points? I was thinking you just lose the player.

    The basic scoring system works like this ...

    Victory points per Player

    Round 1 win = 10 points
    Round 2 win = 20 points [accumulation of 30]
    Round 3 win = 30 points [accumulation of 60]
    Round 4 win = 50 points [accumulation of 110]
    Round 5 win = 80 points [accumulation of 190 points
    Round 6 win = 130 points [accumulation of 320 points]
    Round 7 win = 210 points [accumulation of 530 points]

    Quality points

    For any applicable match, player gets equivalent of [33 - [ranking of opponent]] for any opponent ranked in top 32. For example, your player beats the 15th ranked player and your team gets [33 - 15 ] = 18 points.

    Domination Points [this is where it gets tricky]

    In the menu below, "seeded" means the order of the 6 players on your team. The player you list first on your team [line 1 of 6] is your "1st seeded player", etc. Points are the same for each match played and are calculated as follows:

    1st seeded player: 6 * [(Games Won) - (Games Lost)]
    2nd seeded player: 5 * [GW - GL]
    3rd seeded player: 4 * [GW - GL]
    4th seeded player: 3 * [GW - GL]
    5th seeded player: 2 * [GW - GL]
    6th seeded player: 1* [GW - GL]

    Note (1) If player wins when GL > GW, then points are set to zero so the player is not penalized for the win.
    Note (2) A player who loses with GL > GW will have negative points
    Note (3) Because men play best of 5 but women only play best of 3; men's matches are normalized as if they played a best of 3.

    Re: 2017 AO SKAN Contest

    I've been extricated from last place and even passed RandomSkan. A Serena/Federer win will do wonders for me, since only 18 teams of 64 have them both:

    There are 18 teams with: Serena | Federer |

    The contestants are:

    Jeff in Texas
    Antoinnettia

    Semifinal standings ... Divan25 solidly in the lead with all four finalists. Will be an awkward set of results to dethrone him, if that's even possible. Who would have thought a couple of weeks ago that populating a team with Serena Venus Rafa Federer would be the winning combo. Well done!

    Congratulations to Divan 25 for winning the first SKAN of 2017. It's not often that a team falls out of the lead midway through the SKAN and then recaptures it to snag the gold! Well done!

    Final Standings ...

    On behalf of Peter...bump Looks like RG Skan is still a go!

    Peter, I am responding here because your PM inbox is full.

    I just submitted a SkanCan team on the tennis gamers site. The page display said that my entry was accepted, and I see my name on the rankings page, but I don't see my team in the list of teams. The team I submitted should be a legal team which meets the rankings limit. My entries are:

    1. Muguruza
    2. Suarez Navarro
    3. Nadal
    4. Wawrinka
    5. Kuznetsova
    6. A. Zverev

    I don't know why the team doesn't appear, but I want to send this to you so you know that I did submit a team before the entry deadline. Thanks.

    Hi Mysterx -

    You were right, for some reason your team was not populated in the all teams list. So I went to the Control Board and edited your team to put the names of the players in their designated spaces, and saved the edited entry, and now it shows in the all-teams list. In any event you're good to go!
