PREDICT-THE-SCORE: HOPMAN CUP


http://news.bbc.co.uk/media/images/39699000/jpg/_39699445_lley3_getty_300.jpg

We will have the Hopman Cup as an exhibition tournament...we will be doing a joint game with MTF!

As a WTA player, you will predict the WTA matches, and you will need to partner with a player from MTF who will predict the ATP matches.

Please tell us that you are playing, and who you are partnering with. The teams will be divided into 2 groups, and you will compete, and the winners of each group will predict in the final.

You must commit by Decemberr 31st at noon GMT


MATCHES to PREDICT: 6 of the 12 WTA matches, not including the final. 6 Mixed Doubles Matches (your MTF partner will also predict 6 mixed matches...you do not have to pick the same ones.)


Start partnering and commiting!

It doesn't matter. As long as he/she is from MTF. :) You might want to take a look at the list of commitments here: http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=23237 and approach one of them. :)

I hope you can arrange me a partner lol

Talk to silverwhite about still getting in, he's in charge of groups and he already set them.

But, this is just an exhibition, and you con of course play Gold Coast this week for points.

Fortunately, #5 has taken place, and you predicted the wrong number of sets, so you get a chance to do even better! :)

Well, the match took place before the change, so the change is invalid, but the original prediction still holds. Diminime does not get a replacement or anything here.
