Pick-A-Winner (PAW) - Fed Cup Finals


This thread is for World Group Semifinal picks. To post semifinal picks, please go HERE (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?p=17614115#post17614115)

Each individual player can pick 5 matches from both World Group Semifinals and the World Group Finals. So, DO NOT USE ALL 5 PICKS IN THIS THREAD; AT LEAST ONE MUST BE USED FOR THE FINALS.

All players should make picks, but not all will qualify for the final. Only the top so many teams (exact number to be determined later) will actually ever use the picks they make here.


Some basic guidelines, for your comfort as well as mine:

Never edit your post. It leads to ass-kickings. And probably a suspension as well. If you want to change or cancel a pick, use a new post in which you inform me of the change.
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 match, the pick does not count and may be replaced.
If a player retires during the match, the pick is valid.
At least try to number your picks. Makes my job a little easier.
Post in a format in which it is clear who you think will be the winner.
Player A OVER Player B. Player A DEF. Player B. Like that. And not Player A vs Player B. Player B loses to Player A is highly undesirable too.
And finally, please try to use the player's real names, not their nicknames.

You are only allowed to use 4 PAWs in this thread. At least one must be saved for the finals. Your PAW05 will not be counted.

Also, doubles matches will not be used.

TO CLEAR UP ANY CONFUSION
Here is how things will work in the event of line-up changes:

If a line-up changes, PAWs made for the other match will still be valid.

So, for example, in the Australia vs. Ukraine match:

Originally, Match #3 was supposed to be STOSUR vs. BONDARENKO. However, Bondarenko was replaced by KICHENOK.
But, ALL MATCHES FOR STOSUR vs. BONDARENKO WILL STILL COUNT, but they will be changed accordingly, AS WILL THE SCORING POINTS.

So, a detailed example:

Player A picks Stosur def. Bondarenko
But, Bondarenko is replaced by Kichenok.
Player A's PAW AUTOMATICALLY gets changed to Stosur def. Kichenok.
Also, scoring points will change. So, instead of getting 7 points for the Stosur victory, players will only get 2 points (because the points of Stosur vs. Kichenok are [2-52])

I am aware that this may be a little strange, but it is better than all PAWs becoming invalid.
