FITD Elite Trophy-Zhuhai



General FITD instructions


Playing F-I-T-D (Fill-In-The-Draw) is simple and only takes a few minutes per week. Here is what you need to know:

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

2) This is an invitation tournament. Check post #5 to see if you can take part.

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

4) Read post #6 for instructions on how to post your picks.

5) Picks could only be re-submitted if a player withdraws after you have made your original prediction. You are only allowed to re-submit your draw once. You are not allowed to re-submit again and again even if another player subsequently withdraws. DO NOT EDIT your post when re-submitting your draw. Please submit it through a new post and quote your original post/prediction. Any edited post will NOT be counted.

6) 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.

7) Scoring is based on the WTA ranking points for each round of a pro tournament: for each player you predict correctly into the next round, you receive the points for reaching that round. Walkover also counts as a normal win. Points are not awarded for picking players who advanced to the second round through a BYE.

8) If an alternate replaces a player in the draw after MD has started, the match position will be replaced by the alternate but points will only by awarded for the original picks where the opponent against the alternate nets a win.

Re: FITD Elite Trophy-Zhuhai



Qualifiers


Unlike other tournaments this one is not for everyone. At this tournament can take part only those who finished at #17-#32 of 2018 race. You can check the race here. Although since #17-#19 participated as alternatives at FITD Finals they cannot take part here so the qualifiers for this event are #20-#35 of the race. There are also 4 alternatives (#36-#39 of the race) who can also post their picks but their picks will be used only if a qualifier or more have not posted picks. Priority is given to the higher ranked alternative.

The qualifiers are the following:

#20 @Markmik
#21 @Vitor BM
#22 @ICIA
#23 @scouver
#24 @mocarabe
#25 @igralec33
#26 @goOudinUSA
#27 eye
#28 @Leonard Meaney
#29 @Hugues Daniel
#30 @RNW
#31 @Daszmarelli
#32 @CharlDa
#33 @Walsall
#34 @Meelis
#35 @Drake1980

The lineup for this tournament is really impressive. The above qualifiers have won 17 FITD tournaments at 2018 including a slam (Drake1980). Markmik, igralec33 and RNW are the only who have won 3 tittles this season and are all here !!!

The alternatives are:

#36 @JeffreyGOLU
#37 @silvamarius
#38 @Emiel Goelen
#39 @ianb29

The 4 alternatives won 4 tittles at this season !!!

At posts #7-#11 you can see how all the qualifiers and alternatives made it to Zhuhai
RNW and Hugues Daniel like this.

Re: FITD Elite Trophy-Zhuhai



Tournament Instructions


The format of this tournament differs from the rest and it is the most complicated. So follow the instructions below to post your picks

There are 12 tennis players at this event divided at 4 groups of 3. Last year they had given flower names to each group but I don't know if they will follow this pattern again so I will name the groups in the example as A, B, C and D and the tennis players of each group as A1,A2,etc. Each tennis player will play against the other 2 players of group in a round robin format and the winners of each group will qualify to semifinals.A draw will determine the semifinal pairs and the 2 semifinal winners will play for the trophy in the final.

For our game we need to post winners for every group match. The format of picks will differ than other tournaments too. We need not only type the name of winner but also who defeated. We should also declare the winner of each group. Note that there are not awarded points for predicting correctly the group winner. So the first part of the draw should be as following:

Group A (or whatever else they call it)
A1 def A2
A1 def A3
A2 def A3
Group winner: A1

Same for the rest of groups.

The order of matches doesn't matter much but I would prefer to use the same order I used at post #3. You don't need to post the whole ranking of each group, winner is enough. Although if you declare a winner who has not won most matches of group this choice will be considered as wrong So if a tennis player wins both of her group matches you should declare her as group winner, if all tennis players of group win one match then you can pick any of them as group winner.

The second part of our picks is a bit complicated because we don't know the semifinal pairs in advanced. So there are 3 different cases here and our picks should be as following:

Case 1
SF
Winner A def Winner B
Winner C def Winner D
F
Winner A def Winner C

Case 2
SF
Winner A def Winner C
Winner B def Winner D
F
Winner A def Winner B

Case 3
SF
Winner A def Winner D
Winner B def Winner C
F
Winner A def Winner B

Example from last year's tournament

Azalea
Goerges def. Mladenovic
Rybarikova def. Mladenovic
Rybarikova def. Goerges
Group winner: Rybarikova

Bougainvillea
Vandeweghe def. Vesnina
Peng def. Vandeweghe
Peng def. Vesnina
Group winner: Peng

Camellia
Sevastova def. Stephens
Strycova def. Stephens
Sevastova def. Strycova
Group winner: Sevastova

Rose
Pavlyuchenkova def. Kerber
Barty def. Pavlyuchenkova
Barty def. Kerber
Group winner: Barty

Case 1
SF
Peng def. Rybarikova
Sevastova def. Barty
F
Sevastova def. Peng

Case 2
SF
Rybarikova def. Sevastova
Barty def. Peng
F
Rybarikova def. Barty

Case 3

SF
Rybarikova def. Barty
Sevastova def. Peng
F
Rybarikova def. Sevastova

Re: FITD Elite Trophy-Zhuhai




The draw is done. You can check the groups and the matches of each group at post #3. Qualifiers and alternatives can post their picks based on the instructions of post #6.

It will make my life easier if you use the same match order I have at post #3 !!
