i just don't understand one thing where do you post your pick for the round...?? you pm them to you or post them here in the thread...
and another thing... the margin points is a thing i just can't understand... do you post the set score for one match and then the one who os closer to the real one win?
and what is this bonus points?

and what is this bonus points?

1. Post your picks in this thread ;)

2. Margin points will apply to determine the winner if they both are tie
depending which match need to post the margin points for tie break, I will let everyone know!
You just have to post :
(1) Henin (5 MP)
(4) Jankovic (3 MP)
etc

Example:

You picks : Henin (5 MP) - Jankovic (4 MP)
I picks : Henin (3 MP) - Jankovic (4 MP)

Real Results:
Henin 6-2 6-2 (12-4 = 8 MP)
Jankovic 6-4 6-4 (12-8 = 4 MP)

You def Me 2(5) - 2(3) because you Henin MP prediction was closer to the actual result :kiss:

3. BONUS pts is like a Quality points, you don't have to submit your answer (if you don't want to) BUT you would be silly to not to, as you would have a shot to win 250 pts and the BEST player with the highest BONUS Ranking pts will QUALIFY for YEC

7 players will qualify for YEC based on the overall ranking + bonus
1 player will qualify for YEC if they are #1 on Bonus Ranking league

example:
For Berlin, there will be 250 Bonus pts to be won for everyone who can predicting the Winner & RU (you have to predict both of them correctly)

I predicting = Henin (W) - Hingis (RU)
You predicting = Henin (W) - Hingis (RU)
Actual result = Henin (W) - Hingis (RU)

We both will get 250 Bonus pts to be added into our ranking :)
