Q-Ball - New Idea for Game Based on Qualifying Tournament - SCORES NOW UP!

Just wondering what everyone thinks, this idea could full flat on its face but thought it was a little niche that hasnt been explored much on TennisForum.com

A game to play during the Qualifying Tournament for fun.

How it works
Simply guess the four (or however many) qualifiers of the said tournament and who they beat in the last round of qualifying. This can be down by analysing the draw in question and seeing who you think will make the final round of qualifying and who will come through to qualify.

For every correct player that you guess makes the final round of qualifying (but does not qualify) you will get 2 points and for every qualifier that you pick to successfully qualify you will get 5 points.

Obviously whichever board member(s) gets the most correct guesses and points wins!

This is just a simple idea and just for fun! Any Qs ask away!
