@eye
Great management, thanks a lot.

I have one question: The ranking points from Zhuhai, do they count for the Race 2019?
Or not?

I must be not wrong if I say the Elite Trophy must be the most tricky tournament to manage!

The more so as some crazy pickers like me picked a different winner with each case. :silly:

Great work @eye :yeah:

No Zhuhai and Finals doesn't count to the race. For the race of 2019 count the points we will get at the few 125K tournaments that left at 2018 (Mumbai this week, Limoges the following and Taipei-Houston after 2 weeks) and all tournament of 2019 till Finals-Elite Trophy. The ranking points of Zhuhai will count only at rankings and will be our 19th tournament. It is an a kind of a bonus tournament for all who participate like Finals. It is same as WTA

Yes it is the most tricky not just in management but in our picks too. It has much fun and many upsets and had personal funny situation.

I picked Sabalenka as winner in all cases and different finalists at other cases. After Sabalenka's elimination my only alive picks were Wang and Muguruza as finalists and I realised that I had chances to win only if Muguruza reaches final or even better win it all since I was the only one who would get points at this scenario at case 2.

Muguruza managed to win being a set down. Then I figured that if my other alive pick Wang (finalist at case 1) wins her group then Goerges and Muguruza will be the higher ranked semifinalists and will be seeded and case 2 can't happen !! So I needed Keys to win group which actually happened and even better Wang won match and got points for correct pick too !!! But case 1 was drawn :D I also feel Muguruza will be the winner of tournament which will mean that everything I needed from players happened but lost cause of draw !!

I guess something similar might have happened to others also and while it seems a bit unfair or random it is funny and it is good to have something different once in season

Standings after SF​





A big turn around at semifinals. Keys withdrew, Wang replaced her and this has as result all scenarios we had to change !!!

So after the semifinals it is me who got the lead in the most unexcpected way!!!

Unless another eliminated player returns for the final I will be the winner if Barty wins final @Drake1980 will be the winner if Wang wins trophy !!!

The purpose of predicting group winners is to know which players someone can pick as semifinalists. As long someone predicted Wang to be winner of semifinal #1 of case 1 he/she earns points from Wang unless that pick was not valid (had picked someone else as group winner of Azalea). It is similar situation when there is redraw due to seeded player withdrawal and we earn points from the original ranked #9 player's picks when new path meets the original. Example R1 #1 vs A and #9 vs B and the winners of these matches meet at R2. If #1 withdraws and there is redraw we will have at R1 #9 vs A and LL vs B. Someone who picked #9 as winner of R2 will still get points if #9 wins R2 no matter that came from other path.
