    Daily fantasy Tennis is just like Nascar contests. You never know when a player is going to crash out and wreck your whole line up. But you know its going to happen….

    Yeah, basically I made my lineups based on my model, giving me high Kontaveit exposure, but I thought “this isn’t right” and started looking into it. Was considering an alternative approach until I saw the WD, then decided what the hell, I’ll be all in on Kontaveit. I don’t play too high volume in tennis anyway so I don’t mind taking a potentially risky position.

    Put a time-on-court modifier into your model like you might use in NBA for back-to-backs and 3-nights-in-4. Fatigue and motivation are probably more important in tennis than in any other sport. It’s a long season, the sport is punishing on the body, and you don’t have any teammates to push you if you’re dragging.

    As a general rule I don’t play anyone in the first round if they made a final the week before.

    (Even better is to watch the matches and avoid general rules, but that’s a luxury we don’t always have.)

    And Kontaveit gets broke her first service game lollll

  • sports667

    I guess it may not matter if Kontaveit gets points anyways. Still shows her as PPD on dk btw.

  • Yeoman

    Parmentier up an early break.

    Following on on Live Tennis Scores website, 30-30 in the second game. DK is behind so far.

    She looks awful. Had 2 chsnces to get the break back and 2 unforced errors.

    Thankfully she saved 2 more break points and held serve. Maybe early jitters playing an easier opponent at the last minute. Still hoping for a 6-4, 6-2 ish victory, one can hope.

    If she loses the 30% that faded this match are sitting pretty.

    Even if she gets 19 points it’s still more than the Bertens owners are getting. Gotta stay positive. lol

  • deadphish

    i disagree with this Anett Kontaveit match. she is listed to play Bertens. so how do you get points for a match that is vs a different player? already shows 30 pts for MS…this match never started.

  • BigDawg2323

    She just broke back to tie it at 2-2

  • roadman2207

    Read the rules. They are quite clear 😊

    “In the event a player’s opponent withdraws before the match and a replacement opponent is announced, the original player who did not withdraw will receive all fantasy points accrued in the match. The player who withdrew will not receive any fantasy points.”

    Kontaveit is starting to roll now

    Keep it up

    Its definitely a unique situation that will only happen in DFS tennis.

    Yeah good idea. Do you have a preferred data source? I’ve found several but none are of high quality and hard to automate.

    If you roster a baseball hitter listed to face a certain pitcher and that pitcher gets scratched at lock you still get points.

    Really no different. DK just slow at updating.

    Kontaveit needs to get that first serve % up or she may be in trouble

    I just visually scan each day’s “completed matches” on the protennislive livescore app. I’m a long way from automating any of this; I also don’t play anywhere near the volume some of you folks do.

    As a proxy you could just use game count, though it’ll miss the fatigue of a Niculescu-style grinder of a match.That’d be a lot easier to automate, I would think.

    Thankfully Parmentier’s serve has been just as bad. She’s maybe going for a little more on the first serve, but when she doesn’t get it in that second serve is like T-ball.

    not really. if that team faced a different team instead of the one that is listed….that would be “really no different”
