Predict-the-SCORE #8: Eastbourne 2004

Predict-the-SCORE is a game in which you may predict the score (hence the name) of matches on the WTA Tour each week.

You must predict your matches in the breakdown shown here:

1st Round: 7 matches
2nd Round: 5 mathes
Quaterfinals: 3 matches
Semifinals: 2 matches
Finals: 1 match

If a match ever becomes invalid due to withdrawals or a retirement during the match, it is not counted and you are granted another pick to be used at any other time during the tournament.

The is a commitment thread in the games forum, or you may just post your picks here without committing (only if you are nice and good children will you commit).

How the Scoring works:

Here is an example:

Several players decide to predict the Myskina vs Petrova Quarter-Final Match

ACTUAL MATCH RESULT: Myskina def Petrova 6-7, 6-1, 6-1

Let’s say the following are predictions from a range of players:

• 1. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-7, 6-1, 6-1

Dead accurate and correct score, 35 points.

• 2. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 6-7, 6-1

You predicted the number of sets correctly and you got all three set scorelines correct, just in reverse the actual, this still gets you 25 points.

• 3. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 3-6, 6-2

You predicted the number of sets correctly, and you predicted one of the set scorelines correct (6-1) and it was correct because Myskina won that set 6-1 like she actually did.
A prediction like this will reward you 20 points. (note if you predicted two of the sets correct but not the third on in a three match you will be given a bonus 3 points here)

• 4. Myskina to beat Petrova 7-6, 3-6, 6-4

You predicted the number of sets correctly, and although 7-6 was in the actual scoreline, in the real match Petrova won the set 7-6 not Myskina, as you have predicted.
So any situations like this when you have predicted the correct winner and correct number of sets but no correct actual scorelines, you still gain 15 points.

• 5. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 6-2

You predicted the correct winner but not the correct number of sets but you did correctly predict at least one scoreline that was correct (6-1 in Myskina’s favour), so you get 12 points.
(note if you picked Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 6-1, you still got at least one set correct, so that’s worth 12 too).

• 6. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-3, 7-6

You predicted the correct winner, but neither of the scorelines were correct (note that 7-6 was in the real scoreline but in Petrova’s favour not Myskina’s as you have predicted). A prediction like this will reward you with 10 points.

• 7. Petrova to beat Myskina 7-5, 1-6, 7-6

0 points for any incorrect “match” winner prediction.
