If a match becomes invalid (withdrawals or a retirement during the match) the pick is not counted and you may reuse it any other time during the tournament.
If you plan on playing, you need to commit in the Predict-the-SCORE forum of the games section. Since this is our first tournament with commitments, I will allow people to play if they forget to commit, but after that, you must post a commitment.

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.
