Welcome to Pick-A-Winner (PAW), the Predictions game!

Since this is the Year End Championships, this tournament is only open to the top 16 PAW players in the final 2011 Race Rankings!

Four Alternate positions will also be allocated for players ranked 17 to 20, just in case any of the top 16 players do not play the tournament. The 4 Alternate players can post PAW picks until it is determined that they cannot play in the tournament.

Playing PAW is simple. Over the course of the tournament choose any 7 matches and post who you think will win them.

Some basic guidelines:

Never edit or delete your posts. If you want to change or cancel a pick, use a new post to state your new pick .
Please try to check if a match has started before picking it. If a pick is late it is invalid and you may replace it.
If a player withdraws before the start of the match, the pick does not count and may be replaced.
If a player retires before the first set has been completed, the pick does not count and can be replaced.
Try to number your picks. It makes my job a lot easier.
Posts should be in a format in which it is clear who you think will be the winner. For example: Player A OVER Player B or Player A DEF Player B and not Player A vs Player B or Player B loses to Player A.
Finally, please try to use the players’ real names and not their nicknames.

Congrats MAGIKARPETTA (who also has an awesome nick :lol: )

Thank u :worship:
Never expected to win it all at the beginning (even more after the 1st Sharapova loss) :secret:
I have been a bit lucky with Zvonareva-Radwanska, but I don't know whether to thank Bepa or Aga :oh:
That match definitely gave me most of the advantage :cool:

It's an amazing way to finish my 1st year at PAW. Great game and great player!!

Thanks Sdtoot and see you all in 2012!:bigwave:
