Playing Racket Bracket is simple and only takes a few minutes. Here is what you need to know:

This game is based off of F-I-T-D , or Fill-In-The-Draw.

1) Just post a full predicted draw for the tournament, including all winners in all matches of all rounds.

2) No commitments are necessary for the tournaments; simply post your picks in the thread!

3) You must post your full prediction must be posted before the first ball of the match is struck. Any draws posted after this time will not be counted.

4) Please post your picks in the form "A def. B", "A d. B" or "A over B", and not "A loses to B". Writing down the winner's name only is allowed, but it might make things confusing for us and you may lose points as a result, so please try to post as specified.

Please post players' full names, not nicknames.

6) When changing your picks, you must post in a new post, quoting the previous picks. NO EDITING UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! (any edited post will not be counted, no exceptions!)

7) Please keep your picks as your own and DO NOT copy and paste other poster's picks. If you do this this will be taken as cheating and your picks will not be counted.



Feel free to ask questions! Good luck and have fun!

self assessment; I was still not objective enough, personal favoritism again raised it's ugly? head :sobbing:

i.e. Petukhova, dunno what happened during the dual season but should've considered that she might be out of form.

and I should've been more adventurous, my assessment of the matches were pretty much fulfilled, the prominent case being Secerbegovic.

and, should've have considered Val's amazing resourcefulness, she proved in College Station that she could survive. yes, again favoritism

toward USC player ruined it :lol:

why am I writing this at this hour? I can't sleep :o
