NEW GAME: CHOOSE YOUR BAND! Day 6 update - CONGRATULATIONS lover of myskina!!!!
Choose Your Band!
Welcome to "Choose Your Band!"! It's a simple game and you need just a minute to play it. All you have to do is choosing one player from each bracket. Players are divided into brackets by their ranking, but sometimes a player might be bumped to balance the brackets(only in extreme cases like players coming back from retirement or injuries).
Scoring The formula used to determine a score of a player is: RESULT = ACHIEVED RESULT - EXPECTED RESULT, where RESULT>=0, so you can't lose points by picking someone.
Expected result is a result based on player's position on entry list:
1 to 4 - semifinal
5 to 8 - quarterfinal
9 to 16 - Last 16
17 to 32 - Last 32
Points are based on WTA's points schelude made for certain type of tournament, so in Stanford we'll use Premier points(470/320/200/120/60/0). Please note that I will assign 0 points for first round.
Qualifiers and Wild Cards are assigned in order they appear in draw and their points will be doubled.
(note: if there will be 5 Q/LL's in the draw of Stanford, we will use only first four ones)
Withdrawals When a player withdraws, a random player from same bracket will be chosen.
Everyone who had the player chosen will have her replaced by same player.
The deadline is the SCHELUDED time of start of first match of tournament's main draw.
Bracket 1 (expected points 200)
1. Serena Williams
2. Venus Williams
3. Elena Dementieva
4. Jelena Jankovic
