Note: I have invented the rules myself, if some of you will like it, I will be glad to arrange the game during the year :bounce:

Welcome to Statmania!

There are many games about results themself, but what else influences the results more than statistics do!? That's what is Statmania about, all you have to do is to predict some statistics! It's simple, easy and doesn't need a lot of effort!

HOW TO PLAY
1. You don't have to commit to play Statmania. Posting your prediction is enough, and you might even start in last round of the tournament!
2. Main point of game is getting as many statistics right as possible.
3. Variety and type of statistics you have to predict is based on tournament rank. Basically, the only difference is in Grand Slams, where we're provided with more detailed stats.
4. Game is being played every WTA event that provides live scoring using the official tracker(usually one tournament a week, at least for now), Grand Slams and Year Ending Championships.
5. Before every round starts, I'll post a match which you have to predict. The only exception is, obviously, final and semifinals, because you have to predict stats of both semifinals.
6. Stats you have to predict:
a) in WTA events:
General:
- number of games played(tiebreaks don't count as a game)
- number of sets played
- number of points played
- number of tiebreaks played
- aces total
- double faults total
- match time
Concerning both players individually:
- aces
- double faults
- 1st Serve %
Concerning one of players(you have to specify, which):
- % service points won
- % return points won
- % total points won
In total: 16 stats
b) Grand Slams: TBA
