Entries are officially closed!
With the French Open starting tomorrow, entries are now officially closed. We have managed to reach an incredible 57 entries which means we surpassed my goal of 50 entries and we managed to get 15 more entries than the Australian Open. With more competition this time round, the fight for the grand prize is going to be a lot more intense and I am expecting many lead changes throughout the 2 weeks of tennis. The increase in competition means that there is more prize money to hand out!!!
Prize Money: 1st – R1000 2nd – R400 3rd – R200 4th – R100
4 prizes to win and 57 teams vying for them. Good luck to everyone!!!
Reminder: If one of your top 3 males or top 3 females lose during the first week and your substitute player is still in then you may email me and your substitute player will carry on earning points for your team. I will do my best to be on top of it but I am ultimately leaving it up to tell you.
Some Fun Facts about all your picks:
Most picked Male: Nadal – picked 34 times (59,65%) Second picked Male: Tsitsipas – picked 24 times (42,11%) Most picked Lady: Barty – picked 38 times (66,67%) Second Most Picked Lady: Osaka, Muguruza – picked 24 times (42,11%)

84.2% of the teams entered have selected a male substitute player. 15.8% of the teams entered have selected a lady substitute player. How big of a role will substitute players play? We will have to wait and see…
