Detailed game rules

Thank you for visiting PlayFantasyTennis.com!

Goal
The objective of the bracket is for your selected roster to score the most points for the tennis tournament. The person’s team who has the highest score at the end of the tennis tournament wins their bracket.

Scoring

After your roster is selected & the tournament starts, players on your team score (+) & lose (-) points in different ways. Generally, a player will score points as he/she progresses through the tournament. A more dominant match win is designed to result in more points awarded to your team (i.e: winning 6-1; 6-1 is a better result for your team than winning 6-4; 6-4). A player cannot score less than 0 points for losing a match. Team scores are displayed on a live leaderboard for your pool.

Points are scored by each player for three actions:
  • Winning a game
  • Winning a set
  • Winning a match
Points are subtracted from a player for two actions:
  • Losing a game
  • Losing a set
Action Result
Winning a game +1 Point
Winning a set +2 Points
Winning a match +8 Points
Losing a game -1 Point
Losing a set -2 Points
Winning a match after a bye +10 Points

See the scoring examples at the end for detailed examples.
