Fill-in-the-Draw Memphis 2013
2008: the doctor
is simple and only takes a few minutes per week. Here is what you need to know:
Just post a full predicted
draw for the tournament, including all winners
in all matches
of all rounds.
2) No commitments are necessary
for the tournaments; simply post your picks in the thread!
You must post your full prediction must be posted before
the first ball of the first main draw match is struck. Any draws posted after this time will not
Please post your picks in the form "A def. B", "A d. B" or "A over B" or writing down winner's name only, and not "A loses to B".
Please post players' last names
, not nicknames.
Picks can be altered
only if a seeded player withdraws
after you have made your original prediction. Again, new draws will only be accepted before the first ball of the first main draw match is struck. You cannot alte
r your picks if the player who withdrew was not seeded
When changing your picks, you must post in a new post
, quoting the previous picks. NO EDITING UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!
(any edited post will not be counted, no exceptions!)
Please keep your picks as your own and DO NOT
copy and paste other poster's picks. If you do this this will be taken as cheating and your picks will not
If the qualifiers are still unknown when posting your picks you may add them as "Q" or "QUALIFIER". It would be really helpful if you could give each qualifier a number
(e.g. Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4). This is essential if two qualifiers have to face each other as you will have to specify which qualifier you pick to win
(e.g. Q1 def. Q2). If you do not do this, that particular pick will not be counted.
You will not
get points if the player has a bye
in first round.
Scoring is based on the WTA ranking points
for each round of a pro tournament: for each player you predict correctly into the next round, you receive the points for reaching that round.
Example: International Quarterfinals
Kirilenko def. Petrova
Wozniacki def. Chakvetadze
Schnyder def. Dementieva
Zheng def. Dulko
The actual winners are Zheng, Kirilenko, Wozniacki and Dementieva.
You will get 130 (points for reaching semifinal) x 3 = 390 points.
11) You may play more than one event a week
, but only your best result will be counted
The ranking points will be awarded according to a chart: Fill-in-the-Draw Points Distribution
