Set Point Game
I created today new SET POINT GAME
No commitments are necessary for the tournaments. Post your picks in the thread before start of first match, and you IN!
SCORING POINTS SYSTEM:
If you correctly predict 2-1 win of WTA worse ranked player - you reach 6 pts for that correct pick.
If you correctly predict 2-0 win of WTA worse ranked player - you reach 5 pts for that correct pick.
If you correctly predict 2-1 win of WTA better ranked player - you reach 4 pts for that correct pick.
If you correctly predict 2-0 win of WTA better ranked player - you reach 3 pts for that correct pick.
You have posibility to use "JOKERS" ("X", "X-X", "joker") if you don’t want tip some match (you have right to use this posibiliti not more than 1/4 of some round matches - maximum 16 times in 64 matches of R128, maximum 8 times in 32 matches of R64, maximum 4 times in R32, maximum 2 times in R16, maximum 1 time in QF, and no right to use "jokers" in SF round or Final match) and for all of that "joker" picks you always reach 2 pts.
If you incorrectly predict 2-0 win of some player - and if she win 2-1 you reach 1 pts "lucky loser" bonus for that incorrect pick. Also, If you incorrectly predict 2-1 win of some player - and if she win 2-0 or lose 2-1 you reach 1 pts "lucky loser" bonus for that incorrect pick.
If you incorrectly predict 2-0 win of some player - and if she lose, you reach 0 pts for that incorrect pick. If you incorrectly predict 2-1 win of some player - and if she lose 2-0, you reach 0 pts for that incorrect pick.
Also, if you late to send your pick for some match or use more "jokers" than you have right for that round (maximum 1/4 of number of that round matches) you reach 0 pts for all that’s tips.
Cases of retirement:
If some player retire before match start or when she lead 1-0 - that match is not count!
If some player retire in first set or when score is 1-0 for opposit player - that match counted like 2-0 win for opposite player!
If some player retire in third set - that match counted like 2-1 win for opposite player!
After each round I will update the standings with the points you receive for your picks.
At the end of the each tournament, you will receive ranking points based on where you are in the rankings.
The ranking points you get will be based on the Ranking Points the WTA Players receive for the round they make.
The actual rankings will be calculated after each tournament, and will
be done like the WTA Rankings(except the fact that all tourneys you play in count). They will run on a 12 month system, and you will lose points exactly 12 months after you gain them if you do not defend them. This will help keep the game close and more realistic.
There will also be Race Rankings, which will be accumulated from the first tournament up until the last tournament before the YEC.
The top 8 will make the YEC. After the Year-End Championships, the points will reset and everyone will start the next year from 0.

|PTF - Predict the finalists
Hello and welcome to Predict the finalists in Sofia this week
This game is very simple, basically every week I will pick an itf senior (either a 10k, 25k, 50k or 75k) tournament at random and all you have to do is pick the 8 Quarter-Finalists, 4 Semi-Finalists, the Losing Finalist and Winner
- simple as that. This must be done before the start of the first round. If you choose a player who withdraws before the main draw starts then it will be replaced by a player a 'R1' (replacement player)
Send your picks in the following format please
Losing Quarter Finalists: A Bc, B cd, C, De, D Ef
Losing Semi Finalists: E Fg, F Gh
Losing Finalist: G Hi
Winner: H Ij
Points are awarded as follows;
Quarterfinalist correct: 20 per player
Semifinalist correct: 20 per player
Finalists correct: 20 per player
Winner correct: 20
If you correctly chose the winner you would be granted a total of 80 PTF points, correctly chose the losing finalist 60 points etc.
Also if you picked H Ij to win and she lost in the quarterfinals you would be granted 20 PTF points, and if you picked E Fg to be a loosing semi-finalist and Efg won the tournament then you would only be allotted 40 points still. In total the maximum amount of points you can get per tournament is 300.
Come on give it a go! Youve got nothing to loose
Please send your picks to kittyking
Current PTF Leaderboard
This is the first tournament
Also if you would be willing to help me out with this tournament in future weeks please get in touch too

Re: Game organizers: Introduce your game!
Here's what you need to know:
1) No commitments are necessary for the tournaments. Simply post your picks in the thread. You may play more than one event per week.
2) To play this game, you will post a full predicted draw for the tournament, including all winners in all matches of all rounds.
3) You must post your full prediction before the first ball of the first main draw match is struck.
4) If a player withdraws after you have made your prediction, you MAY ONLY alter your pick if the withdrawing player was seeded. However, if the player who withdrew is not a seed, you may not replace.
Unless a seeded player withdraws, you are not allowed to change picks after the first post.
If you are changing picks due to the withdrawal of a seed, you must post your picks in a new post. No editing posts under any circumstances.
5) As far as qualifiers are concerned, you may post just "Q" in you predictions if you wish to make them before the qualifiers are placed, or you may wait until they are placed to predict, but remember that you must post before the first match begins. If two qualifiers play each other, and you are predicting before they are placed, you must predict based on their placement in the draw. For instance, you may say "Qualifier 1 d. Qualifier 2" which would indicate a prediction that the qualifier who is listed first in the draw would win.
6) If a player receives a bye, you do not get points for predicting them into the second round.
7) Scoring goes as follows:
The points you receive will be based on the round points for the tournament. For each player you predict correctly into the second round, you receive the round points for a first round victory, and so on.
8) PLEASE REMEMBER:
-Post your picks in the form 'A d. B' or 'A over B', and not in the form 'B loses to A'.
-Also, please do not use smilies in your picks, there is really no need for it.
You may begin predicting!
play in 07 everyone welcome

Re: Game organizers: Introduce your game!
SUPERB MASTERS Women's Tennis Association
The aim of this game is to make the most realistic matches between players. This game takes into account:
- player's favorite surface
+ indoor/outdoor preference
- player's features
- player's favorite shots
How does the game work?
1. Choose any WTA player you would like to be a coach of.
2. Put in order your 4 surfaces:
clay, grass, hard, carpet
I surface - 1000 points
II s. - 900 points
III s. - 800 points
IV s. - 750 points
3. Divide 1000 points to Indoors & Outdoors.
4. Divide 30 points to your player's physical, mental strenght & fitness.
5. Divide 10 points to Service & Return.
Clay - 1000
Grass - 900
Hard - 800
Carpet - 750
Indoor - 600
Outdoor - 400
Physical - 9
Psyhical - 9
Fitness - 12
Service - 6
Return - 4
If a tournament is on Clay Outdoors, player A has 1000+400=1400 points.
This means player A has 1400 points to divide into 3 sets, in 13 games in each set.
How player A vs player B match works:
player A 1set: 30, 30, 30, 50, 30, 40, 40, 40, 50, 50, 40, 30, 40
player B 2set: 30, 30, 40, 30, 30, 20, 40, 40, 50, 50, 40, 30, 40
the points in each game will be multiplied by the points of Service/Return =>
player A to serve *:
player A service - 6
player A return - 4
player A 1set: 30*6, 30*4, 30*6, 50*4, 30*6, 40*4, 40*6, 40*4, 50*6, 50*4, 40*6, 30*4, 40*6
if player A is serving, player B has to start with his return:
player B service - for ex. 7
player B return - for ex. 3
player B 1set: 30*3, 30*7, 40*3, 30*7, 30*3, 20*7, 40*3, 40*7, 50*3, 50*7, 40*3, 30*7, 40*3
The definitive points for each player are:
player A 1set: 180, 120, 180, 200, 180, 160, 240, 160, 300, 200, 240, 120, 240
player B 1set: 90, 210, 120, 210, 90, 140, 120, 280, 150, 350, 120, 210, 120
player A wins the first set: 1-0, 1-1, 2-1, 2-2, 3-2, 4-2, 5-2, 5-3, 6-3
