Favourite top 100 tennis player- Group 8

Saw this on MTF. It's off season, and we are all pretty bored (maybe ) So i thought i'd make this tournament. A new idea and i don't know, you may like it

I know we have the list one, and i'm not trying to take anything away from that one. But this is done in a different way, and we may get different results.

It works pretty simular to the Hottest player tournament, but this time it's favourite player. The Top 100 players have been divided into 10 groups. Players from each group have been taken randomly, with Top 10 players being "seeded" players, to avoid them colliding in the first round.
First 4 players from each group move to the The Quarter Finals, for a total of 40 players. Then, again, 4 random different groups of 10, and the best 5 this time will advance To the semi finals. There will be 20 players standing,and divided into two groups of 10. 5 advance again, and they will be the 10 players in the final. Ther player with the most votes in the final will win.

I hope that was easy to understand.

The polls will be multiple choice, so if 2 or 3 of your favourite or well liked players end up in 1 group, you can vote for all of them to go through. To avoid strategic voting (where people will vote for everyone except their most hated player), you can only vote for the amount of players that will head through (in this round 4 and 5 in the later rounds). I can see who you vote for, so if you vote for more than 4 players in this round, your votes will not be counted, as will fake account votes.

The poll will be closed midweek, so vote fast

Group 8

1. (8) Kvitova, Petra

2. Kanepi, Kaia

3. Hsieh, Su-Wei

4. Radwanska, Urszula

5. Pennetta, Flavia

6. Jovanovski, Bojana

7. King, Vania

8. Minella, Mandy

9. Voskoboeva, Galina

10. Cadantu, Alexandra

Re: Favourite top 100 tennis player- Group 8

Update:

In group 8, Petra Kvitova leads the way with almost half of the votes so far. She looks pretty safe with the nearest competitor 11 points behind in Pennetta. 3 points behind her in 3rd place is Mandy Minella. The battle for 4th palce is interesting, as Ula Radwanska, Galina Voskoboeva, Su-Wei Hsieh, and Kaia Kanepi are only within 2 points of each other.
