We don't have anyone to run this :eek:

So I think I would be able to run this :scratch: But I'm not sure if my tables will look like Alex's ones.

It's no easy feat to run this - I should know - I started it!!!
I wish whoever wants to try well - Alex's tables took mine to another level - but maybe a new approach will be a breath of fresh air too!

We can do tipping, where everyone runs a different tournament? I'd help, I just can't see myself working through the entire year. I barely remember to pick after the US Open. A few tournaments won't be bad though

And if we do go on with it:

The way the tables are set up, it'd be annoying to email updated tables every week after a tournament. Unless we did it in a public doc like google docs or something

It seems it's not as horrible as I predicted.

I need only read rules :oh:

It seems it's not as horrible as I predicted.

The tables look easy enough.

I need only read rules :oh:

Whether you use Google docs or not - it still needs the tables to be done for each picking round/tourney - although google docs may have been a better option than saving jpgs ... but when i started the picks I don't think google docs were around!

The rules are as simple or as complex as you want to make them... when I ran it it was only JJs tourneys and if she dropped before the Semi, we wouldn't pick again until Semi/Final.
I included progress as well for bonus points
Alex included lots more like penalty points etc when he took over

I would suggest you take a look at his rules, and follow the link to the initial rules (it's in the early posts as he kindly gave me a shout for setting up the picks in the first place)... and then I suggest developing it from there.

if it starts properly I'll pick - but with job and training to be a journo ... not enough hours in the day to try and run it again.

If you still don't have titles or PP for Brisbane you can still do it.

PP - you have time till JJ match against Nina, but this is my offer for those who didn't pick. If you picked PP, it has to stay the same.

Titles - you have time until Sydney starts.

Even if it was 5:0 for Julia in that set, she retired, so she lost that set. No problem there. If a player leads 6:0, 5:0 and retires, the result should be 1:2, because the player who was leading lost the next two sets IMO. :shrug:

If Georges retired in 1st set, Jelena would have won 1-0. If Georges won the first set and retired in the 2nd, JJ would have won 0-1 :lol: (a la Hantuchova/Kim match last week). Seems like the rational decision.

We had something similar the first year I ran the Picks.
JJ won effectively in 2 sets so I think anyone who picked 2:0 should get the points. 2:1 - get the points for a win but not for the sets.

Where there is a retirement in the first set - I would have just rendered that pick invalid for all so that everyone is on a level playing field.

Of course when the glittery bint plays like she just did - there is no hope for anyone.
