Rules

4 - Singles Tournaments


4.1 - Entry Lists

Entry lists are organized lists; they include all tennis players who are subscribed to a specific tournament.
Entry lists organization is based on:
- Fantasy player's ranking on the current week (increasing order)
- date when the fantatennis player made his choice

Tournament Admission
To be admitted to the tournament your Entry list ranking must be lower than - or same as - the maximum amount of players in the singles draws.

Fantasy Player changes of placement
Once subscription period has expired, it is possible that the tournament chosen by the fantatennis player can change.
It could happen in these cases:
- Tournament could not reach the minimum fee (half board + 1)
- Fantasy player is not (included) on the Entry list
- Fantasy player can play doubles on another tournament

Tournaments will be organized in order to let every fantatennis player play single or –if possible- double that week. It's not possible to change the placement of a fantasy player registered in an ATP tournament to a challenger or a futures.

4.2 - Draws

Draws are extracted according to ATP standards.
- Seeding arrangement: See ATP Rule Book (Chapter 7.16, Page 30-31)
- Other Players: other players are randomly placed on the draws.
- Bye: is provided to seeded players in the case the difference between maximum amount and actual amount of players is larger than (or same as) that player’s seeding number.
If the amount of tennis players members is less than ¾ of the board, other fantasy players can randomly get a bye too.

4.3 - Round Scores

Round scores set provide matches results; they derive from the total obtained by tennis players in all the 8 ranges.
Unlike ranking scores (which will be given at the end of the tournament), round scores are the same for every kind of tournament – from Grand Slam to Future.

In every round, winners and losers tennis players get scores this way:
- Winners add to their scores the difference between (the number of) tennis player’s won games; example:
Federer wins his semifinal match (420). The score is 62 36 76 (6-2 = 4, 3-6 = -3, 7-6 = 1, 4 + -3 + 1 = 2). Total score will be 422.
If the difference is negative, there are no additional scores.
- Losers get only losing game scores; these scores are worth about 1/5 of winner’s scores.
