The "Race" is a year-long competition to see who is best at picking WTA tour event winners.
Like the tour, the "Race" continues right up to the WTA finals.
Come and join "Race the Game"
you don´t need to commit for this Game, just post your picks and you are in


http://img185.imageshack.us/img185/5348/2008howtoplaycn3.jpg
Pick two women for each event.
One pick MUST be 8th seed or unseeded
if you pick a seeded player, please post her seed # behind her Name
just post your picks here in this thread
you can change your picks til deadline as often you want, but please don´t "edit" your original post - please post new
you can also change your picks til "Late Entry Deadline" but then it will count as "Late Entry"


what if my picked player withdraw late?
withdrew is a part of the game
so don´t post any replacement picks before one of your picks withdraw
if your picked player withdraw after deadline it is bad luck for you.
so take this in consideration when you post your picks.





Points:
you get points if you picked the Winner or the Runner up at a Tournament

Grand Slams: maximum 100 points - but never reached so far
IndianWells+Miami: maximum (TBD)
Tier I: Winner 10 - Runner up 5
Tier II: Winner 8 - Runner up 4
Tier III: Winner 6 - Runner up 3
Tier IV: Winner 4 - Runner up 2
Tier V: Winner 2 - Runner up 1




"Late Entry" Rule:
each player can make a "Late Entry" 3 times per year.
"late entry - Deadline" is 24 hours after regular Deadline!!!
no "late entries" at Grand Slams

if your player lose or withdraw before deadline you can change
but please don´t edit your post, just post a replacement pick
if you change after deadline, but before late-entry deadline it will count as a late-entry
so think about first if you want to use a late-entry just to change 1 pick

(AO/RG/WB/US) = here will your GrandSlam points appear (01/01/x) .007 ..07 ..|.|..|....|....|. ..|.|..|....|....|____ your points earned last week ..|.|..|....|...... ..|.|..|....|_________ your total points ..|.|..|........... ..|.|..|______________ Number of late entries already used ..|.|.............. ..|.|_________________ Number of week you earned points ..|................ ..|___________________ Number of week you entered

the player with the most points is #1
if two or more players have the ammount of points then the player with more entered weeks will be ranked higher, if the number of entered weeks is the same then the player with less used Late-Entries is ranked higher.
if both the same then the players are ranked the same.
i choosed this because this game is just fun when many players enter, and so i give a little credit to player who play each week over player who play just few weeks the year

People, look:
One pick MUST be 8th seed or unseeded

You must have Bartoli OR an unseeded player
you can't have two seeded players if one of them is not Bartoli

:haha: (sorry, sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind.)

What was my question again? That's right, What happens to Sharapova's (stats for a better word) if (now I forgot the last part, but you get my drift) if they go all to hell?
i.e. If she loses the plot and just, you know starts losing it? :confused:
