Not sure if anyone is interested, but I've come across a fantasy game for Wimbledon, which starts tomorrow night.

Basically there are 5 attributes; Serve, Power, Returns, Net Play and Mind. You pick one player in each section and score points as follows:

SERVE
Ace = 3 points
Double Fault = -3 points

POWER
Winner = 2 points
Unforced Error = -1 point

RETURNS = 1 point for every percentage of receiving points won

NET PLAY
Net point won = 2 points
Net point lost = -1 point

MIND = 7 points for converted break point

You have to include at least 1 man or woman in your team of 5, you get 5 changes to make in between each round and select a captain.

I've made a league, anyone can join if they want. The league name and password is "FanFooty".

You can fine the comp here http://fantasy.wimbledon.com

Let's also use this thread for Wimbledon discussion over the next 2 weeks. I like Djokovic this year, but I think it will be quite an open competition. A number of people could get the title.

Hard to pick 5 with the 1000 point limit.

Budget of 1000, all semi decent are like 1/4 of the budget.

Not so easy.  :'(

Edit: I feel like I need to pay more attention to the games of some players to actually know what they're decent at.  :-[

Good to see a few people joining up!

Definitely very tough with the budget available. Here is the team I ended up going with.

SERVE - Sam Groth - 50 points

RETURN - Lleyton Hewitt - 300 points

MIND - Casey Dellacqua - 50 points

POWER - Eugenie Bouchard - 200 points (WILD CARD)

NET - Mikhail Youzhny - 400 points

Will be interesting to see how this team goes. Dellacqua probably isn't the best pick, but what can you expect when you only have 50 points to spend?

Definitely jump on Groth for the serve though. Only 50 points and he has one of the best serves on tour.

Without logging in again, from memory I have: Melzer, Bouchard, Gulbis, Pospisil and Verdasco. Not necessarily in that order. Think Gulbis is my wildcard.

Changed my mind on a couple of players and the 5 soon became a 2 0 in the top right corner box.

Now says 'remaining transfers : 2 0'.

Did have 5.

I thought you could have 5 during a round and that the comp didn't begin until the tournament started.

That's strange. It does say you can make unlimited changes before the competition starts.

Nope.

Can't change anymore.

Looks like I'll have to give you all a head start.
