little bit easier we have provided details of each player's performance in Grand

BBC Fantasy Tennis - Wimbledon
This is brought to you by the BBC and
Fantasy League Limited - http://bbctennis.fantasyleague.co.uk/
- and you know this should be a good game as soon as you see that Fantasy
League Limited have set the game up for the BBC. The format has that look
and feel of the Fantasy League quality and I'm hoping this leads to a
trouble free fortnight. No doubt there are going to be a large number of
entries due to the profile of the BBC and the winner will be rightly
proud of beating off the competition.
Right, a quick summary of the main
1. Entry deadline 11.45am Monday 25
2. Select 4 men and 4 women from the
list of 50 men and 50 women but ensure you're not spending more than £100,000
in total for the 8 players (P.S. Players range from £50,000 (Sampras)
down to £1,000);
3. There are no transfers - seems
sensible as it is only a one-off 2 week competition;
4. Accumulate points as your players
progress, win by 1, 2 or 3 sets, beat a seeded player (if unseeded) and
beat a higher seed (if seeded) - to win I suspect you're going to have to
pick at least 1 of the finalists for both the mens and ladies finals
and if a cheap player gets to the semis by beating two or three seeds you're going to need to have had
him in your team so look out for that bargain player;
5. Prize winners receive excellent
tennis coaching session, tickets to A Question of Sport and autographed
Sweatshirt. There are also prizes for the top scoring manager of each of
the two weeks of the tournament;
6. Free to enter;
7. Only one team per manager.
Oh and there's an excellent 'Challenge
A Mate' automated email that you can whack off to taunt your friends!
Looks like enjoyable fun!
