On the Sanex WTA board I ran a game called "The Race to the Chase". The idea was to predict winners for every event. Since the WTA board is dead(and unreliable as hell even when alive) I was thinkinhg about trying it here if there is interest.

The "Race" is relatively simple. Contestants pick one seed and one non-seed each week. Points are earned if your pick wins the whole event, building up to a climax at next year's Munich finale!

The question is, anyone interested in playing?

Ok then-I'm glad to have such a good response., so it's a go! <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />The rules are simple. For each WTA event you get two picks. One pick is a seed #1-#8, the second pick is unseeded or lower than 8.

Last year there were points for event winners only. This year I was thinking maybe there could be points for winners and runnersup. Let me know which you like better.

The other idea is to start a thread on the favorite "nonseed" of the week. This way we can learn more about the unknowns of the tour.

Only 2 weeks more and the race is on!

Glad to see all the feedback(and those who were in the chase before)! I'll try and check out those other games <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

BTW, does anyone have the websites for the first events of 2002? They are the Gold Coast, Auckland, and the Hopman Cup. All worth 2 points for winners, 1 for finalists <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

What I've done in the past is take votes up to and including the first day, because sometimes there are late withdrawals. The other thing I'll <br />do is take picks for future events, in case you are going away for a weekend,etc. Just send me a private message.

2002 "Race to the Chase" Rules

ELIGIBLE: all WTA board members.

RULES:

1. Pick 2 players for each event.<br /> One can be seeded #1 to #8.<br /> One MUST be unseeded, or lower than 8.

2. You can submit votes BEFORE any event, even <br /> weeks in advance if you like. If you do this, <br /> send me a private message please.

3. Cut off is the first day of the tournament. <br /> No votes counted once the first ball is hit<br /> on day 2.

4. You can change votes until the cutoff.

HOW POINTS ARE EARNED.

Tiers 3-5 Winners 2 points<br /> Finals 1 point

Tier 2 Winners 4 points<br /> Finals 2 points

<br />Tier 1 Winners 6 points<br /> Finals 3 points

<br />Slams Winners 20 points<br /> and Finals 8 points<br />Munich Semis 4 points each<br /> Quarters 2 points each.

>>I'll open a thread every Friday for next weeks <br /> event.<br /> >>The points tally will be updated after every <br /> event.

Let me know how you do or don't like the rules <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />I'm open to suggestions, after January 1st they are set.

We need to decide on a 'prize" for the year-end winner! Good luck in the "Race" <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
