Re: FITD WTA Finals 深圳 Shumchun



GUIDELINES

1. The format of the YEC finals in Shenzhen differs from all other tournaments earlier in the year. Shenzhen is a Round Robin (RR), therefore the Top 8 WTA women are placed into two groups (usually Group A and Group B). Each player will play a best-of-three match (BO3) and will have to play everyone in their group once in the group stages. After everyone plays everyone in their group, the top 2 from each group move onto the semifinals. In the semifinals, the best record from Group A will play the 2nd best record from Group B and the best record from Group B will play the 2nd best from Group A. The winners of those semifinals matches play in the finals for the WTA YEC trophy.

2. This event is only by invitation. You may only participate if you are in the Top 16 in the FITD Race or if you are 17-20 as an ALT in case someone misses their picks. If you are an ALT, the only way you can get in is if someone in the Top 16 doesn't post predictions. Highest ranked in race gets priority over lowest ranked ALTs. If you are unsure of where you stand in the race, please refer to Post #5 below. In the event that a Shenzhen alternate/Zhuhai participant replaces an original qualifier in the game, only the Shenzhen scores shall be counted.

3. When you submit your picks make sure you predict ALL of the RR matches. This will ensure you earn all the points possible. When you make your picks, you should write 'Player A def. Player B' or vice versa. The score isn't necessary. Please avoid the use of smilies or other unnecessary characters in your predictions. Observe the proper order of the matches as indicated. Please post Group A predictions first, then Group B because it will be more convenient for me (the manager) to enter all the predictions into my custom-made spreadsheet.

4. 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.

5. Unless otherwise specified, please post with players' surname (last name) only. Nicknames are not allowed. Please kindly use the draw provided by the manager to avoid typos.

6. 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.

7. 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. I am serious about this.

8. Scoring is based on the point system on Post #3: 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.

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

10. Here is a sample of an entry last year in case you are new to this format:
