Welcome to Predict-the-SCORE for the Fed Cup Quarterfinals
The way it will work in FED CUP is that for the 8 singles matched each day, you predict the score for 5 of them and will get points as to the accuracy of your prediction. To take a page out of PAW's book, on the second day things get a little screwy with changing matchups...SO, you should pick 3 supplements to your 5 picks on Day 2, which can replace withdrawals. For some reason, if you get a withdrawal in one of your Day 1 picks, you can be given an extra pick on Day 2.
No Commitments are necessary to this tournament...you can just pick!
Unlike normal FED CUP, you will compete individually, not in teams, and this will not be a knockout system. I'll just compile everyone's points from all rounds of FED CUP to come up with a winner. So anyone can play now...
If you reserved a country during the FIRST ROUND, you can keep that country. I'll post a list of them.
Have fun predicting!!

How the Scoring works:
Here is an example:
Several players decide to predict the Myskina vs Petrova Quarter-Final Match
ACTUAL MATCH RESULT: Myskina def Petrova 6-7, 6-1, 6-1
Let’s say the following are predictions from a range of players:
1. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-7, 6-1, 6-1
Dead accurate and correct score, 35 points.
2. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 6-7, 6-1
You predicted the number of sets correctly and you got all three set scorelines correct, just in reverse the actual, this still gets you 25 points.
3. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 3-6, 6-2
You predicted the number of sets correctly, and you predicted one of the set scorelines correct (6-1) and it was correct because Myskina won that set 6-1 like she actually did.
A prediction like this will reward you 20 points. (note if you predicted two of the sets correct but not the third on in a three match you will be given a bonus 3 points here)
4. Myskina to beat Petrova 7-6, 3-6, 6-4
You predicted the number of sets correctly, and although 7-6 was in the actual scoreline, in the real match Petrova won the set 7-6 not Myskina, as you have predicted.
So any situations like this when you have predicted the correct winner and correct number of sets but no correct actual scorelines, you still gain 15 points.
5. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 6-2
You predicted the correct winner but not the correct number of sets but you did correctly predict at least one scoreline that was correct (6-1 in Myskina’s favour), so you get 12 points.
(note if you picked Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 6-1, you still got at least one set correct, so that’s worth 12 too).
6. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-3, 7-6
You predicted the correct winner, but neither of the scorelines were correct (note that 7-6 was in the real scoreline but in Petrova’s favour not Myskina’s as you have predicted). A prediction like this will reward you with 10 points.
7. Petrova to beat Myskina 7-5, 1-6, 7-6
0 points for any incorrect “match” winner prediction.
