Set Point Game
I created today new SET POINT GAME
No commitments are necessary for the tournaments. Post your picks in the thread before start of first match, and you IN!
SCORING POINTS SYSTEM:
If you correctly predict 2-1 win of WTA worse ranked player - you reach 6 pts for that correct pick.
If you correctly predict 2-0 win of WTA worse ranked player - you reach 5 pts for that correct pick.
If you correctly predict 2-1 win of WTA better ranked player - you reach 4 pts for that correct pick.
If you correctly predict 2-0 win of WTA better ranked player - you reach 3 pts for that correct pick.
You have posibility to use "JOKERS" ("X", "X-X", "joker") if you don’t want tip some match (you have right to use this posibiliti not more than 1/4 of some round matches - maximum 16 times in 64 matches of R128, maximum 8 times in 32 matches of R64, maximum 4 times in R32, maximum 2 times in R16, maximum 1 time in QF, and no right to use "jokers" in SF round or Final match) and for all of that "joker" picks you always reach 2 pts.
If you incorrectly predict 2-0 win of some player - and if she win 2-1 you reach 1 pts "lucky loser" bonus for that incorrect pick. Also, If you incorrectly predict 2-1 win of some player - and if she win 2-0 or lose 2-1 you reach 1 pts "lucky loser" bonus for that incorrect pick.
If you incorrectly predict 2-0 win of some player - and if she lose, you reach 0 pts for that incorrect pick. If you incorrectly predict 2-1 win of some player - and if she lose 2-0, you reach 0 pts for that incorrect pick.
Also, if you late to send your pick for some match or use more "jokers" than you have right for that round (maximum 1/4 of number of that round matches) you reach 0 pts for all that’s tips.
Cases of retirement:
If some player retire before match start or when she lead 1-0 - that match is not count!
If some player retire in first set or when score is 1-0 for opposit player - that match counted like 2-0 win for opposite player!
If some player retire in third set - that match counted like 2-1 win for opposite player!
After each round I will update the standings with the points you receive for your picks.
At the end of the each tournament, you will receive ranking points based on where you are in the rankings.
The ranking points you get will be based on the Ranking Points the WTA Players receive for the round they make.
The actual rankings will be calculated after each tournament, and will
be done like the WTA Rankings(except the fact that all tourneys you play in count). They will run on a 12 month system, and you will lose points exactly 12 months after you gain them if you do not defend them. This will help keep the game close and more realistic.
There will also be Race Rankings, which will be accumulated from the first tournament up until the last tournament before the YEC.
The top 8 will make the YEC. After the Year-End Championships, the points will reset and everyone will start the next year from 0.
and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is
AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
