Predict-the-SCORE Game RULES:

Hi guys

This is game in a similar version of "SCORELINES" which is now dead and is dedicated to players who have a passion of predicting WTA tennis matches and this goes into more depth – predicting the actual scorelines of certain matches in a WTA Tournament.

Throughout this tournament you will be required to predict 25 singles matches. These 25 matches are up to you to pick but there is one requirement for the breakdown of the number of picks:

In the First Round: You predict 7 Matches
In Second Round: You predict 6 Matches
In Third Round: You predict 5 Matches
In the Quarter Finals: You predict 3 Matches
In the Semi Finals: You predict 2 Matches
In the Final: You predict 1 Match


If you have predicted one match that becomes invalid via a withdrawal or draw rearrangement, that prediction is not counted you are given an extra prediction which you can make in any of the further rounds.

You simply post your predictions in this thread.

Post your predictions in this format:


Quote:
ROUND ONE PREDICTIONS:

1 - Capriati to beat Casanova 3-6, 6-4, 6-2
2 - Bartoli to beat Hantuchova 6-2, 6-0

ETC…
  • Because all predictions will be posted under the one thread, it is important to state which round the matches you are predicted from, especially if you just specify the winner and not the loser as well.
  • A tally will be compiled after each round (not day) has finished and will appear in the first post. Only the number of points a player has earned will appear in the tally.
  • Rankings points will be awarded (will run the same as the PAW Singles ranking system, and they will appear in the second post of each new tournament’s thread).
    For now "Predict-the-SCORE Game" will only run for the Main Tournament on the WTA calendar weekly until more players decide to join.


How the Scoring works:

Here is an example:

Several players decide to predict the Myskina vs Petrova Quarter-Final Match

ACTUAL MATCH RESULT: Myskina def Petrova 6-7, 6-1, 6-1

Let’s say the following are predictions from a range of players:
  • 1. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-7, 6-1, 6-1

Dead accurate and correct score, 35 points.
  • 2. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 6-7, 6-1

You predicted the number of sets correctly and you got all three set scorelines correct, just in reverse the actual, this still gets you 25 points.
  • 3. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 3-6, 6-2

You predicted the number of sets correctly, and you predicted one of the set scorelines correct (6-1) and it was correct because Myskina won that set 6-1 like she actually did.
A prediction like this will reward you 20 points. (note if you predicted two of the sets correct but not the third on in a three match you will be given a bonus 3 points here)

  • 4. Myskina to beat Petrova 7-6, 3-6, 6-4

You predicted the number of sets correctly, and although 7-6 was in the actual scoreline, in the real match Petrova won the set 7-6 not Myskina, as you have predicted.
So any situations like this when you have predicted the correct winner and correct number of sets but no correct actual scorelines, you still gain 15 points.

  • 5. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 6-2

You predicted the correct winner but not the correct number of sets but you did correctly predict at least one scoreline that was correct (6-1 in Myskina’s favour), so you get 12 points.
(note if you picked Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 6-1, you still got at least one set correct, so that’s worth 12 too).

  • 6. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-3, 7-6

You predicted the correct winner, but neither of the scorelines were correct (note that 7-6 was in the real scoreline but in Petrova’s favour not Myskina’s as you have predicted). A prediction like this will reward you with 10 points.
  • 7. Petrova to beat Myskina 7-5, 1-6, 7-6

0 points for any incorrect “match” winner prediction.


Other Notes:

>> You do not need to predict the tiebreaker score.

>> You don’t have to commit to every tournament, you just can play.

>> If you miss a round this is unfortunate , but you still follow the number of predictions required for each rounds, even if you end up with less predictions.

>> Like all prediction games, you must post your prediction before the match starting time or it will be void.



Happy predicting ,
Spikey
