View Full Version : Q-Ball - New Idea for Game Based on Qualifying Tournament - SCORES NOW UP!

Just wondering what everyone thinks, this idea could full flat on its face but thought it was a little niche that hasnt been explored much on TennisForum.com ;)

A game to play during the Qualifying Tournament for fun.

How it works
Simply guess the four (or however many) qualifiers of the said tournament and who they beat in the last round of qualifying. This can be down by analysing the draw in question and seeing who you think will make the final round of qualifying and who will come through to qualify.

For every correct player that you guess makes the final round of qualifying (but does not qualify) you will get 2 points and for every qualifier that you pick to successfully qualify you will get 5 points.

Obviously whichever board member(s) gets the most correct guesses and points wins!

This is just a simple idea and just for fun! Any Qs ask away!

Are we choosing one we want to play in? :)

Maybe you can play all tournaments and your best score goes towards your accumulative total.

Thanks to everyone playing. Draw started two hours ago so no more draws please.

Scores go up tomorrow night if the tournament finishes on time!

Good Luck everyone!

and actually B won over A , you get 0 point ?
7 points for this. (5+2)

I could be wrong though. ;)

jonny84
May 11th, 2008, 07:26 PM
Just to clarify points go like this

For a correct guess (both qualifier and beaten finalist) 7 points (e.g. Cornet beats Rodionova would have got you 7 points)

5 points for a correct qualifier but not a correct finalist (e.g. Benesova beats Dellacqua - 5 points for correctly guessing Benesova to qualify but no points for guessing Dellacqua as a finalist)

4 points for both correct finalists but not in the winning order (e.g. Savchuk beats Amanmuradova)

2 points for one correct finalist (e.g. Chan beats Yuan)

0 points for no correct finalists (e.g. Bacsinskzy beats Rodina)

Hope this clears it up!
