Saw this on MTF. It's off season, and we are all pretty bored (maybe :p) So i thought i'd make this tournament. A new idea ;) and i don't know, you may like it

I know we have the list one, and i'm not trying to take anything away from that one. But this is done in a different way, and we may get different results.

It works pretty simular to the Hottest player tournament, but this time it's favourite player. The Top 100 players have been divided into 10 groups. Players from each group have been taken randomly, with Top 10 players being "seeded" players, to avoid them colliding in the first round.
First 4 players from each group move to the The Quarter Finals, for a total of 40 players. Then, again, 4 random different groups of 10, and the best 5 this time will advance To the semi finals. There will be 20 players standing,and divided into two groups of 10. 5 advance again, and they will be the 10 players in the final. Ther player with the most votes in the final will win.

I hope that was easy to understand.

The polls will be multiple choice, so if 2 or 3 of your favourite or well liked players end up in 1 group, you can vote for all of them to go through. To avoid strategic voting (where people will vote for everyone except their most hated player), you can only vote for the amount of players that will head through (in this round 4 and 5 in the later rounds). I can see who you vote for, so if you vote for more than 4 players in this round, your votes will not be counted, as will fake account votes. The poll will be closed midweek, so vote fast :yeah:

Okay. On to the the first group.

Group 1

1. (1) Azarenka, Victoria

2. Vinci, Roberta

3. Cirstea, Sorana

4. Lisicki, Sabine

5. Medina Garrigues, Anabel

6. Tatishvili, Anna

7. Parmentier, Pauline

8. Larsson, Johanna

9. Chang, Kai-Chen

10. Torro-Flor, Maria-Teresa

Just Sorana from this lot. She's not a particular fave but I do enjoy a good ballbasher.

Great choice to include multiple votes.

Oh damn, I didn't realise you can only vote for four. Sorry, didn't read the fine print. Perhaps you can outline it in bold how many people you can vote for in whatever particular round so it stands out? Can you discount my vote for AMG.

Yeah. It's fine, because you just missed out the part where it states you can't. I just want to avoid people voting for everyone except the player they hate because they want them to go out.

Thanks. :p And that is good thinking to counteract those who have a vendetta. :cool:

Nice contest and nice way to vote :) but I have a question: I didn't read (like someone else :lol:) everything before voting, and I actually voted 4 players in a group (group 8 you can see it) because I liked all of them (also, in some other groups I didn't even vote or voted just 1).. what if someone is not actually trying to cheat but ends up having more than 3 liked players in a group? :help:

4 is the maximum you could vote for, so your fine. I just did it to prevent people trying to kncok their most hated players out.

I'm liking the response it's getting. I didn't think it would take off this well, but it has. Lots of votes and some interesting poll battles in some groups.

Has anyone picked up what i've done with the draw yet?

I randomly picked a player from every 10th in the ranking. Eg. 1 from 1-10, 1 from 11-20, 1 from 21-30, and so on.

Update:

Azarenka, Lisicki, Cristea, and Vinci are all looking pretty safe. It's still on to who will be winning this group. Azarenka is leading the way, 7 points ahead of Lisicki who is 6 points ahead of Cristea.

Will be interesting to see who will finish top.

Tomorrow morning the poll closes. So if you haven't voted, then get your votes in fast. Ignore what the poll says about closing. It is closed tomorrow morning after i've woke up and got myself sorted. The reason is, is that i've got some time to tally the votes and make the Quarter Final groupings. Once i've posted the results, that's it, no more votes will be counted. Thats for every group btw.

If you've voted for more than 4 players, but told me, then instead of knocking votes off a player, i'll let them stand just for this once. If it happens in future rounds, then your votes will not count. If you did it without telling me, then your votes don't count.
