PTS # 012---San Diego 2006

Important Information:
Predict-The-Score Rules
PTS 2006 Race Rankings
PTS: Past Tournaments & Results
PTS Players' Countries

Code:
RULES AND INFORMATION:

Predict the scores of matches from all the rounds and get points on how 
close you were to the correct score.
Making Predictions
Each tournament you must predict the score of WTA matches for that 
tournament. Based on the size of the WTA Draw, you will have to pick so 
many from each round. Now, the only predictions that you ABSOLUTELY 
MUST MAKE are from the first round. After the first round, you may make as 
few, or the maximum number in each round. So, if you forget to do round 2, 
you're not out, just make some for the QF's or SF's or etc.

Code:
NUMBER OF PREDICTIONS:

64 Player Draw:
1st Round: YOU MUST MAKE 9 PREDICTIONS
2nd Round: You CANNOT make more than 7 predictions
3rd Round: You CANNOT make more than 5 predictions
Quarterfinal: You CANNOT make more than 3 predictions
Semifinal: You CANNOT make more than 2 predictions
Final: 1 Prediction

Code:
SCORING POINTS

Now, for the points. For each match you predict, you will get points based on 
how accurately you predict the match. Here is a list of all the points you can get:

Correct winner, set #, and all scores: 35 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 3-6, 7-5, 6-2. actual score: 
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, set #, set scores, but the sets were in the wrong order: 
25 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 6-2, 3-6, 7-5. actual score: 
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, set #, and one set score: 20 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 3-6, 6-1, 6-4. actual score: 
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, set #, and two set scores: 23 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 3-6, 7-5, 6-1. actual score: 
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner and correct set #, but no scores correct: 15 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 6-0, 4-6, 6-3. actual score: 
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, incorrect set #, and 1 set score correct: 12 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 7-5, 6-0. actual score: 
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, incorrect set #, and 2 set scores correct: also 12 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 7-5, 6-2. actual score: 
3-6, 7-5, 6-2)(this is also 12 points because the set # are incorrect..so 
basically correct winner but incorrect set # gets you 12 points)

Incorrect winner (scores and set # do not matter): 0 points
(ex: your prediction: sharapova d. davenport 6-3, 5-7, 6-1. actual score: 
davenport d. sharapova 3-6, 7-5, 6-2. even though you got 2 set scores 
right and the # of sets, it doesn't matter cause your winner is wrong.)


Code:
RANKING POINTS:

Winner(1st)-- 300 points
Finalist(2nd)-- 210 points
Semifinalists(3rd/4th)-- 135 points
Quarterfinalists(5th-8th)-- 75 points
3rd Round(9th-16th)-- 42 points
2nd Round(17th-32nd)--25 points
1st Round(33+)-- 1 point
After each round I will update the standings with the points you
receive for your picks. At the end of the 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.


No need to sign up, just make your first round picks to be eligible to play!! Good luck!!
