Race - the Game | Vol.5.14 berlin.rabat

Race - The Game Vol.5

Explanation:
The "Race" is a year-long competition to see who is best at picking WTA tour event winners.
Like the tour, the "Race" continues right up to the WTA finals.
Come and join "Race the Game"

you don´t need to commit for this Game, just post your picks and you are in

How to Enter:
Pick two women for each event.
One pick MUST be 8th seed or unseeded
if you pick a seeded player, please post her seed # behind her Name
just post your picks here in this thread

you can change your picks til deadline as often you want, but please don´t "edit" your original post - please post new
you can also change your picks til "Late Entry Deadline" but then it will count as "Late Entry"

what if my picked player withdraw late?
withdrew is a part of the game
so don´t post any replacement picks before one of your picks withdraw
if your picked player withdraw after deadline it is bad luck for you.
so take this in consideration when you post your picks.





Points:
you get points if you picked the Winner or the Runner up at a Tournament
Grand Slams: maximum 100 points - but never reached so far
Tier I: Winner 10 - Runner up 5
Tier II: Winner 8 - Runner up 4
Tier III: Winner 6 - Runner up 3
Tier IV: Winner 4 - Runner up 2
Tier V: Winner 2 - Runner up 1


"Late Entry" Rule:
each player can make a "Late Entry" 3 times per year.
"late entry - Deadline" is 24 hours after regular Deadline!!!
no "late entries" at Grand Slams

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

warsaw.estoril.points



HeninHardenne........ 8
Kuznetzova........... 4
Safarova............. 4
Na Li................ 2

HeninHardenne was picked by each player who entered "the Race" this week. and so each player earned at least 8 points this week.
Clijsters was also picked by around 90%, but Kuznetzova was picked just once from alwayshingis. well done.
Krajicek and Safina has been the favorits in Estoril
and so noone picked the qualifier Safarova
(maybe i need to post the qualifiyng draw in the future too)
Na Li was picked just 8 times

as we had 1 unseeded player in each final (they even won the torunaments this week)
it was possible to reach a total ammount of 18 points


alwayshingis......... 14
kfh_9118............. 10
oren987.............. 10
S-T-E-V-E............ 10
SpikeyAidanm......... 10

1.geewhiz.............. 31 = 68,89% of possible points
3.kfh_9118............. 25 = 55,56% of possible points
3.agatha christie...... 25 = 55,56% of possible points
5.alwayshingis......... 24 = 53,33% of possible points *




january.....Buitenzorg/Zhao..... 096/133 = 72,18% of possible points
february....raquel.............. 038/072 = 52,78% of possible points

march.......GoDominique......... 038/042 = 90,48% of possible points
april.......martirogi/geewhiz... 031/045 = 68,89% of possible points


* alwayshingis would have been player of the month if Kuznetzova had won Warsaw, because then he/she had 4 points more and 28 points in total
and martirogi and geewhiz would have ended up with a total of 27 points.

all is up to date now

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood
