Post PAW (Pick-A-Winner) - FEDERATION CUP PLAY-OFFS 2004

defending champ: INDIA


PICK-A-WINNER – FEDERATION CUP 2004

THE PLAY-OFFS




Welcome to Pick-A-Winner (PAW), the Predictions game!





Playing is simple: over the course of the Play-Offs of the Federation Cup across 4 different ties choose any 8 matches that are played, including singles and doubles and post who you think will win them.

You should have committed in the Fed Cup Play-Off draws and commitments thread - here, remember only countries that lost in their first round in April can participate here.


  • This year the tournament will work as a knockout tournament, with countries facing off against each other like in the real Fed Cup, eg Singapore vs Belgium in one of the play-off rubbers, whoever gains the greatest calculation of scores (see how they work, below) will advance to the Semi-Finals.


  • For these four Play-Off rubbers, the losing countries will be regulated to Zone 1, with the winners advancing back to the World Group in 2005. See the final selected teams and results for each of the 4 ties posted by andrew_uk in post #3 of this thread


Calculation of Scores:

2 player-team: Average points of ALL player's points
3-4 player-team: Average points of ALL player's points, minus one of the player's worst result
5 player team: Average points of ALL player’s points, minus two of the player’s worst result.






Play-Off Ties betting odds

South Africa – United States: 2.50 - 1.60
Great Britain – Israel - Croatia: 1.50 - 2.10 - 2.25
Spain - Serbia & Mon: 1.75 - 1.75
Singapore – Belgium: 1.65 - 1.85

Scoring pts

Fixtures and Scoring Points

  • Please note the doubles match scoring points will be released when the draw comes out, but however as it is always the 5th rubber this team is subject to change, a good idea is to PAW “COUNTRY #1’s Doubles Team” over “COUNTRY #2’s doubles team.”
  • As you can see, I have listed all the possible singles matches below, when the draw does come out, you should pick the matches according to the draw as your 8 picks. However on day 2, there are a lot of alternatives, so all of you are encouraged to make at least four-eight “Supplementary PAW’s” incase one or more of your PAW’s becomes invalid through a withdraw of a player, or in a case of a dead rubber, a substitute.
  • It is important to note that you are NOT allowed to make a replacement PAW on day 2, you can only add PAW’s to your supplementary PAW’s (and not replace PAW’s or supplementary PAW’s), remember if there is an invalid match in your 8 main picks, your 1st supplementary will act as your PAW8 and so on.
  • The Captain has the power to add supplementary picks to any of their player’s PAW’s, but he/she cannot replace/cancel or rePAW for their players.
  • When the draw does come out, I will bold the match ups that are scheduled, these are the matches you should include in your 8 PAW’s, with the unbolded ones you can include as your 4-8+ supplementary PAW’s.

Frooty_Bazooty - The first round of Federation Cup 2005 is next April, so we will have lots of time. It would be great though if you get some Irish people to join the board, as I am currently promoting PAW everywhere, and we are trying our very best to get more players from new countries, and more players from countries that currently have 1 sole representative. Only 1 more Irish person is needed to make a Fed Cup team as the minimum amount of players on a team is 2.

Next year there will be a Zone 1, where new countries will play Fed Cup PAW next year. The losing countries of the play-offs this year will also play in Zone 1.

Question

someone just told me this...i din believe it but now i see it...

if Belgium is the second seed, why are their betting odds higher at 1.85 compared to unseeded Singapore 1.65??

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Wawrinka, Federer, Serena, Bovina, Li Na, Dementieva, Zvonareva, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Kumkhum, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players!!!

Seedings were already made in April, and for the entire year they were based on that.
