SCORELINES (ROUND 1)

Welcome to another SCORELINES. The rules are simple, I give you 4- 1st, 4- 2nd, all quarterfinal, semifanal and final matches to predict and you give me your predictions and score points accordingly

here are the first round matches to predict
higher ranked player in capitals

LISA RAYMOND vs paola suarez
ELENA DEMENTIEVA vs meaghan shaughnessy
ANNA PISTOLESI vs elena bovina
SILVIA FARINA-ELIA vs mary pierce

good luck and please put tiebreak scores if predicting tiebreakers

**please do not edit predictions/predictions end when match STARTS***

RULES:

Making predictions:
All you have to do is predict the SCORELINES of the matches I present to you. Including tiebreak scores. (Sounds easy enough, doesn't it?)

I will select four matches in early rounds of smaller tourneys, (2 matches in early rounds in Slams and large draw tourneys). All quarterfinals, semi-finals, and the final will be in play.

When writing your predictions, ALWAYS write predicted winner's name first, for example:
Seles d. Hingis 7-6(2) 4-6 7-5
Do not write: Hingis v. Seles 6-7(2) 6-4 5-7

*YOU CAN POST OR CHANGE YOUR PREDICTIONS UP TO THE START OF THE MATCH. Predictions are closed once the match has STARTED.*

*IF YOU ARE GOING TO CHANGE YOUR PREDICTIONS, PLEASE DO ANOTHER POST(DO NOT EDIT YOUR FIRST POST) OR YOUR PREDICTIONS CANNOT BE ACCEPTED. *

Ties:
In the event of a tie following the final, winner will be determined by player with highest score in a single round. If still tied, next highest round, and so on.

Explanation of Scoring:

PREDICTING THE WINNER:

The only points scored for predicting the winner of a given match are for making a prediction in the correct number of sets as follows:

2 Set Match Predictions:
~'Favorite' predicted/wins in 2 sets= 5 pts
~'Upset' predicted/occurs in 2 sets= 20 pts

3 Set Match Predictions:
~'Favorite' predicted/wins in 3 sets= 5 pts
~'Upset' predicted/occurs in 3 sets=15 pts

Winner predicted, wrong amount of sets predicted =3 pts

*Note: Favorite/Upset determined by Player Rankings at start of tourney (Favorite will be in bold) Consecutively ranked players will not earn points in this section,(for example, 5 vs. 6) as there is no clear favorite in this case.

PERFECT PREDICTIONS:

2 set match scorelines:
~EXACT = 40 pts
~Reversed = 20 pts

3 set match scorelines:
~EXACT = 60 pts
~1 set EXACT, 2 reversed = 40 pts
~All 3 out of order = 30 pts

*Note: "Perfect Predictions" must include a tiebreak won, but not exact tiebreak score. See Bonus Scoring below.

CLOSE CALLS:

Any one set score (correct winner, order):

~Exact = 20 pts
~One game off = 5 pts
(i.e. Prediction: 6-3 Actual: 6-4)

Note: Tiebreaks count for one game off score, so actual 7-5 earns 5 pts for 7-6 prediction and visa versa (correct winner only)

Any one set score (correct winner, out of order):
~Exact = 10 pts

*NOTE: a set prediction can score only once-- for highest value, (excepting tiebreaks)

BONUS SCORING-TIEBREAKS:

Tiebreak predictions (per set) score as follows:

1. Any tiebreak set (score, order, winner-- all irrelevant) = 3 pts

2. Tiebreak set(correct winner, any order, any score) = 5 pts

3. Tiebreak set (correct winner, correct order, any score) = 10 pts

4. Tiebreak set(correct SCORE, winner, any order) = 25 pts

5. Tiebreak set (correct SCORE, winner, order = 50 pts

**Note on Bonus scoring: These points are additional to Exact or Out of Order scores earned . Highest value is applied--they are not cumulative.

As you can see, predicting Tiebreak sets and scores can really boost your point totals! So don't forget to predict the score when predicting your tiebreaks,
--i.e. 7-6(5) or 6-7(2) <---Losing score always in paranetheses.
