Who will last longer 2013
 
Rules: Participant has to guess which player lasts longer that particular week.
Doesn't matter if it's doubles or singles, what level of tournament it is or what stage in the draw it is - the guess should be about who will leave the tournament last.

Feel free to suggest rules for the game if you think they are necessary.

Added rules:
2012-05-28: Grand slam participant is considered as the winner of her tournament if she reaches the second week. The next week she will be counted from scratch as if participating in a brand new tournament
2012-06-27: Guessing should be made before any of the players main draw matches results are known.
2012-10-22: In case of a tie, the round reached will be used as a tie breaker (Final over SF for example).
In case there is still a tie, singles result is preferred over doubles result.
2012-10-25: ranking of players has changed from simple sort by "%right","number of correct guesses", to a point system that gives a slight push to a player who participated in more games. The equation for ranking points is:
"%right"+"number of total guesses"*2
the new sort is by "rank points","%right","number of correct guesses"

I feel, and have always thought so, that the essence of the game should be "who will go deeper".
Always seemed absurd to me when a couple of times the "weekly winners" didn't win a single match.
Order of play shouldn't be the deciding factor as it can be now.
