Question/Bet Game: Australian Open CONGRATS SZYMON !

Question Game

Concept: The Concept of this game is to answer Questions about upcoming matches
Example: Who will win this match? Who will win more points? Will this person have more than 3 double faults...etc

Every day 10 questions will be posted about that day's matches
You will post your answers to the questions in the thread

SCORING AND ADDITIONAL POINTS

First Round = 1 point per correct answer
Every additional round = one point more than for the previous, per correct answer

Example
if the matches of the day are
Li vs Errani
Williams vs Sharapova
Pironkova vs Peng

Questions COULD be Who will win Li or Errani, Will Sharapova Win more than 60% of her first serves? Who will double fault more Peng or Errani?

Pretty Easy game! I hope people play

If you have ANY questions let me know!
