Aleks, I am not sure how does this YEC format works ? Top 3 or 2 go through ? Or all players get to pick for all the matches till the end ? However, since I wont be at home and wont be able to use internet I pick higher seed d. lower seed 2-0 in every match.

Depends on whether there are ties. All I know for sure is that there'll be some elimination after RR stage and that the same number of pickers from each group will advance. The original idea is that the top 3 will advance, but it could be top 4 or top 2 in the end. I'll see after today.

Since Hashim forgot to pick, we finally get to see an alternate in action. It's Markus and because he's been picking throughout Doha and because this is his only chance to get points here, I will take all his Friday picks (Maroon and White) into consideration.

Hashim.
Oct 29th, 2010, 04:42 PM
:o
So that means i can't pick anymore right?

Only forgot to pick in the first and last tournament. :worship::lol:

дalex
Oct 29th, 2010, 05:00 PM
No, no, no. You can still pick if you go through to the semis, Hashim. You could make it if JJ wins against Vika, not sure though.

Elena :bigcry:

Thanks to PP mainly we got the top 3 in both groups. FYI number of RR wins was worth 3pts and Progress was worth 2pts. We start a new phase now to determine the Doha 2010 Champion. One group had an unfair advantage 'cos Jelena, who was sure to lose all her matches, was in their group, so I decided to organize the new table for this stage: #1 from each group will start with 4pts, #2 with 2pts and #3 with zero, reflecting their RR ranking. Picks will be worth more (3+3), so everyone has the chance to win. Try not to cheat. :lol:

So, 2011 season is going to start in like 3 weeks or so... :eek:

Hope y'all are ready! The season should begin in Sydney, which starts on January 9th. Hopefully some previously retired pickers will make a comeback or we'll get some new ones. Anyone interested in playing picks should post here, so I can see how many (approximately) pickers there will be for the new season.

I've updated the Hall of Fame (http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=16809383&postcount=2) on the first page. I also changed some rules regarding points distribution and penalties. Nothing fancy - I only differentiated Premier 5 Series from ordinary premier tourneys regarding Progress Pick points (correct PP is now worth 7 points at P5 tourneys while it stays 5 points at other premiers); Penalty rule from now on applies only to Grand Slam and Premium Mandatory tourneys (read more about it in the rules (http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=16809381&postcount=1)).

MaBaker will help me run Picks in 2011. She's the new Deputy Master & Commander. :bowdown:

Yeah, if you want to - it's the bonus pick for 2011. For the rest of the season we will pick only for matches and progress. Missed picks at Grand Slams and Premium Mandatories will get you negative points. We always pick for the semis and finals, no matter if Jelena's gone that far. Top 12 pickers qualify for the Istanbul SEC.
