Welcome to PYF [Pick Your Favorites]

Playing is very simple, for every ITF - unless 10k's - You need to pick your top 5 favorites playing the tournament's Main Draw (+ alternates in case there's a withdrawal before the tournament). The goal is not to choose who you think will win, but who you'd like to see win. At the end of the week, points are calculated according to WTA pointschart and you can compare the results of your faves to the other player's faves team.

This week we'll only have 4 ITF's tournaments.

You can find all the entry lists for the tournament here :

Bratislava - $100,000 +H (http://www.itftennis.com/womens/tournaments/tournamentacceptancelist.asp?tournament=1100018459&event=&order=Position)

Nantes - $50,000+H (http://www.itftennis.com/womens/tournaments/tournamentacceptancelist.asp?tournament=1100018460&event=&order=Position)

Tokyo - $50,000 (http://www.itftennis.com/womens/tournaments/tournamentacceptancelist.asp?tournament=1100018461&event=&order=Position)

Istanbul-Ted - $25,000 (http://www.itftennis.com/womens/tournaments/tournamentacceptancelist.asp?tournament=1100018462&event=&order=Position)

A few reminder before you post your picks :
- You have to choose 5 players/ tournaments. Only results in MD are taken into account.
- Per tournament you can choose as much alternates you want with a minimum of 3 Alternates/tournament, in case one (or more) of your 5 faves withdraws or doesn't reach the MD. Alternates will be taken in the order you put them in you list.
- You can choose players from the qualies list, but their results will only count if they reach the MD and no qualies points will be awarded. In case you choose a Qualies player, please make sure to add an extra alternate.
- As long as the deadline isn't reached, you can change your team (for example in case of an additional WC, a player who qualify or on the other hand, a player who withdraws or fails to qualify). When you do change your team please post the change you've done unless it won't be taken into account.

As an example, I'll post my picks for this week :

Bratislava : Strycova, Rybarikova, Stanciute, Pavlyuchenkova, Karatantcheva, (Alt : Malek, Safarova, Pliskova)
Nantes : Jugic-Salkic, Flipkens, Baltacha, Kutuzova, Pastikova, (Alt : Schruff, Goerges, O'Brien, Larsson, Fedak, Minella)
Tokyo : Nakamura, Namigata, Date-Krumm, Moore, Hsieh, (Alt : Doi, Morita, K.C.Chang, Ferguson, Iijima, Hwang )
Istanbul-Ted : Petkovic, Senoglu, Gehrlein, Buyukakcay, Shamayko, (Alt : P.Mayr, Glushko, Schaefer)

Deadline for your teams : Thursday Oct, 30th - 5pm CET (4pm GMT)

As this week's thread was opened quite lat, the deadline has been pushed to Thursday. Note that from next week onwards, the game will resume with the normal deadlines.

Oh, can I make a suggestion, bibi?

I think, for this game, you should equalize the scores for all challenger tournaments.. It's not really of any use to count much more points for 100k's than for 25k's. :shrug:
If your faves do well in 25k's but yours suck in 100k's you still end up really low overall.

I don't know honselty... This is something we could discuss I guess :shrug: Ayway I'll ask to get a Subforum (not sure we'll be able to get one though) so we can have a disucssion thread for that kind of proposals :p

I actually could not think of any reason not to equalize points.... :confused:

Results updated!

Congrats to iPatty & King Of tennis who respectively secured the victory in Nantes & Tokyo!

This weeks #1 spot should go King Of Tennis, Andiyan or Dorien. as those three are way ahead of their challengers.

I'll try to keep this updated as results are posted :wavey:

Updated :)

Congratulations to Dorien. who secured victory for Bratislava.

This week winner will be either Andiyan or Dorien. (even though King Of Tennis is currently leading).

Would Krajicek win Bratislava :
Andiyan gets 328 pts
Dorien. gets 322pts
King of Tennis gets 314pts

IStanbul's results wouldn't matter and Andiyan would win this week

Would Pavlyuchenkova win Bratislava :
Dorien. gets 322pts
King Of Tennis gets 314pts
Andiyan gets 308pts

Istanbul-Ted could decide the 2nd spot (Petkovic putting Andiyan in second place) but Dorien. would win for the second time.
