    O.k., so when is ATP Fantasy Season going to start? Last year it started at this time. If it starts any later, we'll lose a Masters Series event.

    Anyone have inside info?

    I want to know too!

    Nina - are you going to be doing write-ups each week like you started doing last season?

    I've been picking quarterfinalists and up every Sunday at Tennis Diary to warm up. Tennisinsight.com has been doing some interesting statistical analysis and it turns out that some of the betting sites have tables of court speeds determined by number of games played in a set. Interesting to see that clay courts at high altitude sometimes play faster than hard courts.

    I'm getting a bit nervous because the fantasy game should have started up by now. The ATP is dropping the ball if it doesn't follow up on the interests of 14,000 tennis fans.

    Don't worry, they won't cancel it. It says "coming soon" on the fantasy website. But they're pretty dumb not to have it start at the beginning of the season.

    Bad news. I just got this email from the staff answering my question about the start:


    Hi,

    we have not been approached by ATP in order to develop this game, so we
    really do not know

    best regards
    Support


    So it seems the ATP doesn´t care about this contest. Maybe this is dumb but would it be possible for TW to organize a similar contest for the members?
