1. your first idea is food but i really want to make it a simple game... your idea also make it a little like set point and i want to reamain to thing that in the first few round one point means one correct pick.... but from and quarter or maybe only from the semis this thing is very good...!!! you know what i thing that we need to do this from the quarterfinal and in GS from the fourth round... tell me what you think.....
2. your second idea was what we used in the begining but what happen is that people didn't have enough time to post thier picks....
the diffrence is only in the first round.... in the first round i know the matches from saturday so this give everyone two days to pick.... but if we will do it by days than it will give only 1 day to pick because the oop for it's day is anounnced a day before.....
3. wow great idea...!! and it will really help me if i won't be able to send the rankings....
please if some players can commit to this and when i won't be able to do the rankings i will let one of them know and they will do it for me.... if someone can do this please tell me...!!
thanks for your great ideas...!!!
1)I can see the resemblance to the Idea in the "set point" game.
But my proposal was to keep it simple as you said you wanted it.
Only the matches with ranked player of each tournament as published in WTA site, 8 in regular up to 32 in GS should reward double the regular points if the not ranked
player should win.
For matches between two ranked players there should be no double points.
The reason for doing this
1) to make it simple
2) to try and make the tipping players pick unseed players and
look for surprises, and by this getting to the end stages with
a bigger points difference between the players.
3) to reward participants to pick the underdog.
If you would apply this Idea only at the latter stages of the
tournament, chance to find unseed players would be slim.
2)I only meant to give a more unified name for each round of pick.
Players could still pick matches for the day after next if
already published, only call them by the days of the the
Anyway, just Ideas you can use them, change them or not, as you wish.
