Post 2002's "Race to the Chase " game

On the Sanex WTA board I ran a game called "The Race to the Chase". The idea was to predict winners for every event. Since the WTA board is dead(and unreliable as hell even when alive) I was thinkinhg about trying it here if there is interest.

The "Race" is relatively simple. Contestants pick one seed and one non-seed each week. Points are earned if your pick wins the whole event, building up to a climax at next year's Munich finale!

The question is, anyone interested in playing?

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

I'll play too.

It is best to keep your mouth shut and be presumed ignorant. Then to open it and remove all doubt.

Ok then-I'm glad to have such a good response., so it's a go! <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />The rules are simple. For each WTA event you get two picks. One pick is a seed #1-#8, the second pick is unseeded or lower than 8.

Last year there were points for event winners only. This year I was thinking maybe there could be points for winners and runnersup. Let me know which you like better.

The other idea is to start a thread on the favorite "nonseed" of the week. This way we can learn more about the unknowns of the tour.

Only 2 weeks more and the race is on!

hey I think that creating a thread for the "non seeds" is a good idea.

For those of us who are less resourceful than others, it can be difficult to find much information on the lower ranked players.

i'd love to play this time around <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
