Any Pick posts timed AFTER the Pick closes will NOT be counted – regardless of what time I post the tables.
Please post your picks as: PREDICTION: X defeats Y: SET-SCORELINE
so that they stand out (Pretty Pictures/Colours optional!)
Pick Closing Times subject to change, depending on Scheduled Start of Play.
If you want to change your pick before the closing time, please quote your original pick and post a new reply so that I don’t miss the edit.
Possible negative points for this round.
If you missed PP, but start picking now you will get PP penalty (-5). If you didn't miss PP, but miss this round's pick(s), you will get penalty (-1) for each match missed.
Any JJ fan/supporter (reetard included) can play this game and join in at any time of the year, but....
1. Tournament commitment
Committing to a tournament means picking how far will JJ progress at the next tournament she plays. Progress Pick is opened as soon as the draw becomes available. Usually we pick for her 1st match at the same time, unless she's got a 1st round bye.
Consistency is heavily rewarded in The Pick Thread, so try to commit to as many tournaments as you can. The tournament you commit to becomes mandatory for you and you will be penalized with negative points for each Round Pick missed at that tournament. So, try not to forget about picks.
Grand Slams & Premier Mandatory tournaments are mandatory for all participants.
If you don't commit to a Premier or International tournament, but start picking for individual matches during that tournament, you will be penalized with negative points for missing the Progress Pick. You will not be extra penalized for each Round Pick missed.
THANK YOU & GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
I like new rules. even if i forgot to pick
