Re: WTA Draw Challenge

Definitely doing this. Wonder if we will get anything good if we win. Hopefully someone from TF wins!

Is it possible to wait for the qualifiers to come out and be placed in the draw before we make our picks? That determines a large majority of it tbh. A qualifier could go pretty far here

TT Singles Current Ranking: #5 (CH Ranking: #1)
Titles(10): Singapore YEC 2015 Eastbourne 2015, Dubai 2015, Linz 2014, Cincinnati 2014, Wimbledon 2014, Marrakech 2014, Quebec City 2012, Cincinnati 2011
TT Doubles Current Ranking: #25 (CH Ranking: #8)
Titles(8): Zhuhai 2015, Stuttgart 2015, Sofia TOC 2014, Cincinnati 2014, Bucharest 2014, Tokyo 2012 (w/New_balls_please), Stanford 2012, Carlsbad 2011, Osaka 2011 (w/rvugt)

Re: WTA Draw Challenge

For terrible PhotoShop, just look at the Cibulkova's picture on the homepage.
Sweat all over except for her face. Any kid in kindergarden could've done a better job.

The WTA is just copying the ATP at this point. Hopefully the "special recognition" for the winner will be a trip to Singapore in 2015.


And can someone send a Vine for their WTA Live? They received ... one so far.

The three pictured are all slam winners. Waiting in the sidelines, Halep should really be in line ahead of Aga since she's the coming force, and the future of the WTA, and knows how to win tournaments regularly. Aga despite going up a place in ranking due to the inactivity of those above her is, at best, stagnating and is falling behind Halep in terms of development. Halep's more attacking interesting game will also be more of a draw for new fans in future.

Anyway, let's just thank god Genie wasn't on it.

Re: WTA Draw Challenge

Lol people are quite negative. I don't see the need to be so negative. It's only a bit of fun .

I would guess it's because if they ever add a prize you have to be over 21 to collect prizes in the USA where they are based.

To be fair to the WTA, that's a Getty image. I'm sure Getty do the airbrushing to help them sell more pictures. There was one of their pics of Sloane recently - exact same thing, drenched in sweat from the neck downwards but blissfully free on her face.

There's a game on this forum called Fill-In-The-Draw where you have to post all your picks before the first match of the main draw is played, so when we don't know the qualifiers before this match (which is the case half the time) you have to be adventurous with picks called Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4...

I used to play that game

That's one of the reasons I didn't like it

Re: WTA Draw Challenge

From the rules page, "At this time, there is no prizing associated with the Contest other than the good feeling associated with achieving victory over other contestants."

I'm still gonna play though.
