Does anyone have any ideas on how to improve upon the game for the new year?

The only thing that I would like people to think about would be the tie-breaker rule of games lost. This rule makes sense if there are more then one person to get all the picks right, but when everyone loses early it makes no sense to take games lost. For example lets say there are 2 people left and they both lose on day 5. They had all the same picks for the first 4 days, but picked different people on day 5 who both lost. This is where the problem lies, if player A picked Anna K to win and she loses 6-3 4-6 4-6 and player B picks Jen C to win and she loses 0-6 0-6 Player B would win because that player has fewer games lost.
Player A Games lost (4,4,4,4,15)
Player B Games lost (4,4,4,4,12) Player B wins with fewer games lost

This doesn't make sense to me as Anna at least won a set and came closer to winning then Jen did.

I hope this all made sense.
