View Full Version : Fill-in-the-Draw: Roland Garros Mixed Doubles

Jun 1st, 2006, 12:15 AM
(alwayshingis - this is inspired from your game, and if you don't want me to do this, tell me... Because I sent you a PM, but you never answered, so I don't know. I figured I'd post this, and if you disagree with the idea, I'll just let it die. Thanks for your consideration :))

Welcome to Fill-in-the-Draw: Roland Garros Mixed Doubles!

This is a trial to see the level of interest in this kind of game. If all goes well, I'll try to play this game after Roland Garros.

To play, just fill in the entire draw with who you think will win each round, up until the winner. You cannot, under any circumstances, edit your posts, or the entry will not be considered valid.

Scoring will be done using the following method:
If you predict:
- a first round match winners: 2 points;
- a second round match winners: 4 points;
- a quarterfinal match winners: 8 points;
- a semifinal match winners: 16 points;
- the Champions: 30 points.
for a possibility of 158 ponits with a perfect entry.

Please make sure your entry is clear, for my sake =).

the Draw:
(1) Raymond/Bjorkman vs. Stewart/Matkowski
Myskina/Melzer vs. Suarez/Knowles
Peer/Erlich vs. Huber/Friedl
Mauresmo/Santoro vs. (7) Likhovtseva/Nestor

(3) Shaughnessy/Bryan vs Kirilenko/Paes
Foretz/Llodra vs. Bremond/Gicquel
Hingis/Bhupathi vs. Arvidsson/Huss
Mirza/Hanley vs. (6) Navratilova/Bryan

(8) Srebotnik/Zimonjic vs. Peschke/Damm
Razzano/Dupuis vs. Loit/Jeanpierre
Parmentier/Baghdatis vs. Dulko/Gonzalez
Yan/Haggard vs. (4) Zheng/Mirnyi

(5) Stubbs/Perry vs. Ruano Pascual/Prieto
Chakvetadze/Knowle vs. Pratt/Vizner
Zvonareva/Ram vs. Cornet/Chardy
Sun/Aspeling vs. (2) Black/Ullyett

Because of the short notice, I will accept entries until Friday. However, if your entry comes in after the order of play begins tomorrow, you will not get credit for predicting the two matches that will be played tomorrow. :)
I hope a lot of people participate :)

Castano/Fyrstenberg replaced Loit/Jeanpierre, so that match will not be counted as a prediction.

Standings after Round One:
1. Kuzyisno1 - 18 points.
2. Barlos - 16 points.
2. mat87to - 16 points.
2. Volcanic Tennis - 16 points.
5. Bart - 14 points.
5. Emiel Goelen - 14 points.
7. Moon Unit - 8 points.

funny, everyone picked Ullyett/Black over Aspelin/Sun so we all got that wrong :lol:
