Fill-In-the-Draw #37: CHAMPIONSHIPS 2005

I'm posting this thread now so that I can explain how the rules of this game will be applied to the championships.

Like the WTA championships, the top 8 players only will be eligible to play this event. There will be alternates in place who may make picks in case one of the top 8 players do not pick.

THE FINAL STANDINGS:
1- alwayshingis
2- jrm
3- silverwhite
4- ZAK
5- hotwine8
6- ma261988
7- QuickyMonster
8- Scorpioo

Alt: Bart
Alt: KuzyIsNo1

The competitors will be drawn into 2 groups of 4 (like the championships). The top 2 finishers in each group after the Round Robin points are tallied, will advance to the SEMIFINALS, and the top two players after the semifinal points will advance to the final.

In your post, you will pick the winners of ALL of the Round Robin matches. Based on your Round Robin predictions, you will take the top two players you predict to advance in each group and predict the winners of the semifinals and the final. If, based on your round robins predictions, two players are tied for second place in a group, you must CHOOSE one which player advances to the semis. REMEMBER: you must pick all Roudn Robin matches, the semifinals, and the finals in the same post.
-If you are unsure about how to do it, just ask me to clarify, or use my picks as a guide.

If someone withdraws after the groups are made (doubtful), I will post instructions about changing your picks. I hope it doesn't come to that. Have fun everyone!

For every Correct Semifinal Prediction: 340 points
A Correct Winner Predition: 485 points

So...2617 points available at the Championships!

This could get really complicated ... what if i chose someone for SF who won 2 matches (let's say another one won 2 matches in the group) but because of the head-to-head or lesser sets lost she won't advanced?

Yeah, that is the risk in the championships. You have to make that choice.

It should get less complicated once the tournament begins.

This is correct as far as the pick format, except players from the same group cannot play each other in the semis, so you did not need to pick clijsters v. pierce semi or the davenport v. sharapova semi because those cannot happen.

Other than that, use hotwine8's picks as a guide.
