2011 Australian Championships (PYW) - Winner: Sam Stosur!

2011 Australian Championships (Pick Your Winner)

Previous Champions:
2010: [1]Sam Stosur def. [2]Jarmila Groth 64 16 75

Here are the rules:

- 32 player draw based on latest available Australian rankings at http://rankings.tennis.com.au/
- 1 vote per person per day
- 1 vote = one game
- should a set go to a tiebreak, 1 vote = 2 points until players reach 6 then it's 1 vote = 1 point. (Thanks Dani12)
- Don't try and be tricky and do one vote just before midnight and then one just after midnight... we're all in different timezones and midnight is at different times for all of us so doing this isn't fair on others

Re: 2011 Australian Championships - Pick Your Winner!

I always did 1 vote = 2 tiebreak points until 6-6, then 1 vote = 2 tiebreak points. However do whatever you feel, that was my preference

Re: 2011 Australian Championships - Pick Your Winner!

It's just a pretend tournament where we all get to cast votes, basically so that we try and get our favourites winning through the "tournament". It's a silly waste of time, yes, but hey - that's why we're all on the internet, right? Also, it passes the time until the AO Series starts

Here's an example of the Canadian one: 2011 Pyw Canadian Championships

Actually we've been doing this in here for years too I thin OZTENNIS or Dani have been running it?

Thankfully no qualies. That used to take forever. But should we vote on wildcards?

*edit* Also, get rid of Konta. I know she is listed as Aussie, but she wouldn't take part in this (IRL) even if you paid her...

Re: 2011 Australian Championships - Pick Your Winner!

Okey doke - I'll swap Johanna for Arina. But it would have been sorta nice to see Johanna get flogged by a scrub.

I didn't worry about WCs - too subjective, so I took the (relatively) easy way out.

If it's all good with you lot, I'll do the draw tonight (get my pen n little bits of scrunched up paper out... haha) and post it in the morning...

Re: 2011 Australian Championships - Pick Your Winner!

^ Yes Arina is a good replacement.

Also isn't Bobusic ranked ahead of Peers? And there are a few players ranked ahead of Tyra, how did she get in over them?

I'll stop nit picking now

*edit* - OK you've gone with official Aussie rankings instead of wta. I didn't read clearly, my bad.
