Predict-the-SCORE #3: Ladies German Open

Predict-the-SCORE is a game in which you can predict the actual scores of matches on the WTA tour.

Throughout the Ladies German Open -from Berlin-, you will predict the scores to 24 matches of your choice. However, the matches must be chosen in this breakdown

1st round: 7 matches
2nd Round: 6 matches
3rd Round: 5 matches
Quarterfinals: 3 matches
Semifinals: 2 matches
Finals: 1 match

If a match becomes invalid (withdrawals and the like) the pick is not counted and you may reuse it any other time during the tournament.

No Commitments are necessary, and you should post the predictions in this thread.

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.

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

You're right. Sorry, i'm dislexic. I switched Pastikova and Yan.
So, ghosts needs to change his pick, but if he doesn't he can get an extra pick in another round due to my error.
