Welcome to Pick-A-Winner (PAW), the Predictions game!


Since this is the Year End Championships, this tournament is only open to the top 16 PAW players in the final 2009 Race Rankings!

Four Alternate positions will also be allocated for players ranked 17 to 20, just in case any of the top 16 players do not play the tournament. The 4 Alternate players can post PAW picks until it is determined that they cannot play in the tournament.

Playing PAW is simple. Over the course of the tournament choose any 7 matches and post who you think will win them.

Some basic guidelines:
  • Never edit or delete your posts. If you want to change or cancel a pick, use a new post to state your new pick .
  • Please try to check if a match has started before picking it. If a pick is late it is invalid and you may replace it.
  • If a player withdraws before the match, the pick does not count and may be replaced.
  • If a player retires before the first set has been completed, the pick does not count and can be replaced.
  • Try to number your picks. It makes my job a lot easier.
  • Posts should be in a format in which it is clear who you think will be the winner. For example: Player A OVER Player B or Player A DEF Player B and not Player A vs Player B or Player B loses to Player A.
  • Finally, please try to use the players’ real names and not their nicknames.

Ranking Points (YEC - 16 Players)

Code:
1st - 750          5th - 300           9th - 177          13th - 140

Re: Pick-A-Winner #452 YEC - Doha 2009

Announcements

16/Oct/09 - No need to commit for this PAW tournament, all qualifiers are automatically entered.

24/Oct/09 - 11 Players now confirmed as qualified for the YEC's after Linz/Osaka. Based on todays standings at Moscow/Luxembourg, the top 15 look certain to qualify, with the final place still up for grabs.

25/Oct/09 - Final 16 Qualifiers and 4 ALT's for the PAW YEC's are now finalised. Scoring points for all the Group Stage matches are now listed. First matches start on Tuesday. Feel free to start making your picks. Alternates can make their PAW picks until it is determined that they cannot play the tournament. Any ALT's who do make it into this tournament will not be able to play at PAW Bali the following week. Good luck everybody.

27/Oct/09 - A low scoring opening day at the PAW YEC's with only four players scoring points from Serena's victory over Sveta in the final match of the day. ^bibi^ has the early advantage with 1/1 correct. Many players opted for Venus over Elena and this looked a good pick during the first two sets of the match, only for Venus to choke with victory in her grasp. Will her sister let her back into the tournament tomorrow?

28/Oct/09 - Yet another low scoring day for the PAW players at the YEC. Only one player matthias scored points today with Serena over Venus and now takes the lead with 17 points from 4 picks. Many players chose JJ and Azarenka today but Wozniacki's fightback and Safina's early back injury resulted in another blank scoring day for most players. First Alt Zvonareva now replaces Safina in the tournament and she will have two matches to try to make the SF's. All points have now been added for Zvonareva.

29/Oct/09 - A big relief for some players today to actually score some points to establish themselves on the leaderboard. The day has been dominated by Chris 84 who catapulted to the top of the leaderboard with all three picks correct for a massive 27 points total. There are still four players (including the manager) who have yet to score any points, but maybe they are holding back for a last minute sprint to the title? The latest betting odds from Ladbrokes suggests that the title winner is still very open:- Chris 9/4, Louis Cyphre 3/1, Chaton/jrm/kfh_9118 all 5/1, 10/1 the rest, Buitenzorg 500/1.

30/Oct/09 - There have been many huge chokes so far in this tournament and today we saw Azarenka choke away another certain winning position, much to the horror of 12 PAW players who picked her. Chris 84 is now joined at the top of the leaderboard by matthias who was the only player to pick Sveta but he has only one pick remaining. Louis Cyphre now appears to hold a slight advantage and is only 4 points behind the leaders with 3 picks still remaining - no doubt he will be praying for no first set retirements in the remaining 3 matches. The latest betting odds from Ladbrokes are :- Louis Cyphre 8/11, Chris 84 3/1, In the Zone/jrm/kfh_9118 10/1, matthias 12/1.

31/Oct/09 - As expected, both Williams sisters won through to the final, much to the cheer of most PAW players (not the manager) who still had picks in hand. Louis Cyphre is now hoping for a Serena victory tomorrow to take his first YEC Title and also move to No.1 in the PAW rankings. A Venus win over her younger sister will give current leader Chris 84 the title, but the bookies are firmly with Serena and Louis Cyphre to take the YEC title with odds of 1/2.

01/Nov/09 - Final update now completed. Big congrats to Louis Cyphre for his ninth career PAW title and first ever PAW YEC Title. More importantly, this win will make him No.1 in the PAW Entry Rankings at the end of this year. Thank you to everyone for playing this week and hopefully you will all have another successful year in 2010 and qualify for these championships again next year.

Thanks
sdtoot

Re: Pick-A-Winner #452 YEC - Doha 2009 | 11 Players Qualified!

I doubt I'll make it here. Would've been nice to have qualified for a 3rd consecutive year. Good luck and congrats all.

This will be harsh - none of the players is doing well at the moment, anyone can win
