Re: FITD (Fill-in-the-Draw) Wuhan - SUNDAY START

Shockingly low number of participants in this tournament: 46 :eek:

The server issues managed to drive a lot of people away and/or many players weren't aware of this tournament starting on Sunday.

Re: FITD (Fill-in-the-Draw) Wuhan - SUNDAY START

Here are the stats:



And the graphics show how chaotic the bottom half turned out to be to make picks:

Picks for the title



Kvitova (15) and Halep (14) emerge as overwhelming favorites to win the title. Only eight players picked a bottom-half winner (and one of those picks was a typo :hysteric:).

Top half finalist picks



Halep and Kvitova are joint favorites (18 each). Not many different players picked to go all the way.

Bottom half finalist picks



11 (!) different players were picked to make the final from this half of the draw - including three players that have never made a P5/PM final: Kontaveit (1), Q. Wang (1) and Mertens (5). Tokyo finalists Osaka and Pliskova are the joint favorites to make the final (14 picks each).

Re: FITD (Fill-in-the-Draw) Wuhan - Don't miss this season's last P5 tournament!

Actually, that rule was changed in a poll you yourself created in the off-season of 2016. :shrug:
My mind is still in the past then :eek:h:

Re: FITD (Fill-in-the-Draw) Wuhan - Day 2 update!

I think it is due to Sunday start and timezone. For europeans tournament started something like 4-5am while for americans it was still Suturday evening. So all these people had to post draw at Suturday and seems many didn't find time for this :awww:

Re: FITD (Fill-in-the-Draw) Wuhan - Day 2 update!

@Random Run I should have 720 only and not 780. :eek:h:

I guess the mistake comes from the two qualifers match. I played Q5, which was Sorribes Tormo, whereas Golubic was Q4 (initially at least, maybe the lucky losers messed it up). I can tell so because in a case of Q vs Q I always pick the second Q, whereas in 90% of the cases it's the Q above who wins. Don't ask why. :eek:h:

I am here to speak out about my rights, you owe me an apology, I'm not a cheater, I'd rather lose, etc. :lol:

I knew that would happen :lol: As soon as the qualifiers were placed, I saw that Golubic was written as Q5 in many places (including the Main Draw thread here) but now that I'm looking at WTA's OOP, Sorribes was apparently Q5. I'll correct those few picks, stats and post R2 update ;)

Re: FITD (Fill-in-the-Draw) Wuhan - R2 update!

I'm so sorry for that Golubic-Sorribes Tormo mess :eek: Fortunately it didn't involve many players nor it created a huge mess in the rankings. Thanks to @Hugues Daniel for pointing it out :worship:

Now back in the game - R2 turned to be quite the mess for everyone's picks. None of us got more than half of R3 players right :( Only 9 of us are still with a change to get at least half of the quarterfinalists right, with Broseghini being the only player with a chance to get six correct picks. Our sole leader is ianb29, who once again got the biggest number of correct picks in this round (8, along with Broseghini and Kon.) but ace the line has a very good shot at regaining the top position - ianb29 has lost both finalists while ace the line is one of three players (along with Broseghini and igralec33) to have both finalists still standing:

Wang (congrats to goOudinUSA, igralec33, Drake1980, Markmik, Broseghini and ace the line), Gavrilova (congrats to wshlourte, Kon., windsongs and aerosmash) and Puig (congrats to Ceze, igralec33, Vitor BM, WhoAmI? and Meelis).

Tomorrow's matches

Re: FITD (Fill-in-the-Draw) Wuhan - R3 update!

Draw has collapsed for pretty much all of us - igralec33 is the player to get the biggest number of correct quarterfinalists (three) and is the only player to have both finalists still standing. 40 of us have lost both of them :spit: ace the line has regained the lead after making two correct picks:

We already have a winner - congratulations, @igralec33!

The 2nd to 4th spots can still change a bit but most of us know our final positions. Picking unseeded players like Sabalenka or Kontaveit to reach the final is a risky move but in this tournament it really paid off :cheer:

Congrats! Inspired and courageous picking amid the seeds' early collapse that definitely paid off! :bowdown:

You won Auckland and Indian Wells 125k this year! ;)

Wuhan is now your 13th career singles title in FITD, and the biggest one. :cheer:

2018 - Wuhan, Auckland, Indian Wells 125k
2017 - Acapulco
2014 - Guangzhou
2013 - Doha, Birmingham, Bastad, Stanford
2010 - Warsaw, Quebec, Linz
2009 - Barcelona

I can't believe I'm still in the upper half of the ranking here. :sobbing:

Thanks, Fabrizio/RaRu! :yeah:
