PTS # 005---Strasbourg 2006

Note: There will be no Istanbul for PTS this year because we do not get enough people for two tournaments a week yet! Sorry if you would have rather played there.

RULES AND INFORMATION:

Predict the scores of matches from all the rounds and get points on how
close you were to the correct score.
Making Predictions
Each tournament you must predict the score of WTA matches for that
tournament. Based on the size of the WTA Draw, you will have to pick so
many from each round. Now, the only predictions that you ABSOLUTELY
MUST MAKE are from the first round. After the first round, you may make as
few, or the maximum number in each round. So, if you forget to do round 2,
you're not out, just make some for the QF's or SF's or etc.


NUMBER OF PREDICTIONS:

32 Player Draw:
1st Round: YOU MUST MAKE 7 PREDICTIONS
2nd Round: You CANNOT make more than 5 predictions
Quarterfinal: you CANNOT make more that 3 predictions
Semifinal: you CANNOT make more that 2 predictions
Final: 1 Prediction


SCORING POINTS

Now, for the points. For each match you predict, you will get points based on
how accurately you predict the match. Here is a list of all the points you can get:

Correct winner, set #, and all scores: 35 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 3-6, 7-5, 6-2. actual score:
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, set #, set scores, but the sets were in the wrong order:
25 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 6-2, 3-6, 7-5. actual score:
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, set #, and one set score: 20 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 3-6, 6-1, 6-4. actual score:
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, set #, and two set scores: 23 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 3-6, 7-5, 6-1. actual score:
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner and correct set #, but no scores correct: 15 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 6-0, 4-6, 6-3. actual score:
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, incorrect set #, and 1 set score correct: 12 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 7-5, 6-0. actual score:
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, incorrect set #, and 2 set scores correct: also 12 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 7-5, 6-2. actual score:
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)(this is also 12 points because the set # are incorrect..so
basically correct winner but incorrect set # gets you 12 points)

Incorrect winner (scores and set # do not matter): 0 points
(ex: your prediction: sharapova d. davenport 6-3, 5-7, 6-1. actual score:
davenport d. sharapova 3-6, 7-5, 6-2. even though you got 2 set scores
right and the # of sets, it doesn't matter cause your winner is wrong.)




RANKING POINTS:

Winner(1st)--150 points
Finalist(2nd)--85 points
Semifinalists(3rd/4th)--55 points
Quarterfinalists(5th-8th)--30 points
2nd round exit(9th-16th)--16 points
1st round exit(17th+/no picks made)--1 point

After each round I will update the standings with the points you
receive for your picks. At the end of the tournament, you will receive ranking
points based on where you are in the rankings. The ranking points you get will be based on the Ranking Points the WTA Players receive for the round they make.

The actual rankings will be calculated after each tournament, and will
be done like the WTA Rankings. The will run on a 12 month system, and you
will lose points exactly 12 months after you gain them if you do not defend
them. This will help keep the game close and more realistic. There will also be
Race Rankings, which will be accumulated from the first tournament up until
the last tournament before the YEC. The top 8 will make the YEC. After the
Year-End Championships, the points will reset and everyone will start the next year from 0.


No need to sign up, just make your first round picks to be eligible to play!! Good luck!!

Announcements after Round 1:

Only one perfect pick in the first round of Strasbourg! And that belonged to MH0861 who correctly predicted the Laine/Schruff score and starts off a third strong tournament in a row, proving to be a force to be reckoned with in the PTS Tour.

With the retirement of Bammer, anyone who predicted that match gets a free pick to be used at any point in this tournament. That is EVERYONE except:

mapaliey
jrm
Barlos
Solitaire
Silverwhite

You 5 do not get one because you did not predict that match! Everyone else can use one at any time in the tourney!

Good luck in the 2nd round!!!

Announcements after Round 2:

It seems the 2nd round of every tournament provides its PTS players with a numerous amount of perfect picks. And Strasbourg was no exception. 5 of the 19 players capitalized in the 2nd round and scored 35 points for perfecr picks! They were:

meelis13(zheng)
I<3Lindsay(zheng)
Ceze(zheng)
Solitaire(vaidisova)
Slokid(vaidisova)

Congrats to you 5!

Slokid was able to make enough strong predictions to move from 9th to 1st in the standings. Silverwhite and MH0861 are right on his tail, however, both looking for their first PTS title.

Remember this qf round is the last possible round in which you can use your free pick from the Bammer match if you havent used it yet. Don't lose it!! And be sure to send in a replacement pick as well! Good luck for the remainder of the tourney!!:D

There were 2 perfect picks in this round...Meelis13 and jrm both predicted the Medina Garrigues victory perfectly and earned 35 points each! Great job!!

As you can see the standings are really tight and anyone can still win this! With only three matches remaining make sure to definitely get your picks in! It could mean a huge difference in the amount of ranking points you recieve. For example look at fourth place. Only one of those two will be receiving semifinals worthy points and the other will only get quarterfinal points. Huge difference! Good luck!!

Congrats to Slokid who wins his 2nd PTS title of the year! The rankings will be out later today so stay tuned to see if we have a new PTS number one or not!

Just want to point out how close this tournament really was. The top 3 were all within 4 points of one another. Thats the difference of correctly getting a set, or not. Even the cut-off for 8th-9th place(quarterfinal finish) was decided by one point. Smokovec will get 30 ranking points, while Solitaire will only recieve 16.

Hantu was the closest to a perfect pick in the final. He predicted 7-5 6-3, with the actual being 7-6 6-3. Great job, in your first tournament!!

Congrats to Slokid, and everyone else who did well here! We say goodbye to Istanbul but play our first grand slam next week at Roland Garros. I hope youll join us!:)
