Well, here we are. The first major in the brief history of Predict-the-Score. All should be very excited. :bounce:

Predict-the-SCORE is a game in which you may predict the score (hence the name) of matches on the WTA Tour each week.

You must predict your matches in the breakdown shown here:

1st Round: 20 matches
2nd Round: 15 matches
3rd Round: 8 mathes
4th Round: 5 matches
Quaterfinals: 3 matches
Semifinals: 2 matches
Finals: 1 match

If a match ever becomes invalid due to withdrawals or a retirement during the match, it is not counted and you are granted another pick to be used at any other time during the tournament.

The is a commitment thread in the games forum, or you may just post your picks here without committing (only if you are nice and good children will you commit).

Scoring Rules

*Copyright SpikeyAidanm - April 9th, 2004 -*

How the Scoring works:

Here is an example:

Several players decide to predict the Myskina vs Petrova Quarter-Final Match

ACTUAL MATCH RESULT: Myskina def Petrova 6-7, 6-1, 6-1

Let’s say the following are predictions from a range of players:

• 1. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-7, 6-1, 6-1
Dead accurate and correct score, 35 points.

• 2. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 6-7, 6-1
You predicted the number of sets correctly and you got all three set scorelines correct, just in reverse the actual, this still gets you 25 points.

• 3. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 3-6, 6-2
You predicted the number of sets correctly, and you predicted one of the set scorelines correct (6-1) and it was correct because Myskina won that set 6-1 like she actually did.
A prediction like this will reward you 20 points. (note if you predicted two of the sets correct but not the third on in a three match you will be given a bonus 3 points here)

• 4. Myskina to beat Petrova 7-6, 3-6, 6-4
You predicted the number of sets correctly, and although 7-6 was in the actual scoreline, in the real match Petrova won the set 7-6 not Myskina, as you have predicted.
So any situations like this when you have predicted the correct winner and correct number of sets but no correct actual scorelines, you still gain 15 points.

• 5. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 6-2
You predicted the correct winner but not the correct number of sets but you did correctly predict at least one scoreline that was correct (6-1 in Myskina’s favour), so you get 12 points.
(note if you picked Myskina to beat Petrova 6-1, 6-1, you still got at least one set correct, so that’s worth 12 too).

• 6. Myskina to beat Petrova 6-3, 7-6
You predicted the correct winner, but neither of the scorelines were correct (note that 7-6 was in the real scoreline but in Petrova’s favour not Myskina’s as you have predicted). A prediction like this will reward you with 10 points.

• 7. Petrova to beat Myskina 7-5, 1-6, 7-6
0 points for any incorrect “match” winner prediction.

IMPORTANT:

As I have mentioned before, I will not be at a computer for the second week of the tournament and will therefore be unable to run it at that time (I will return on the final Friday of RG, but then depart again on the next Wednesday, during the DFS week, and not return until the middle of the next week). So someone else will be running the game for the second week of RG, Birmingham, and Eastbourne. Both silverwhite and yoyoyoyo have expressed interest in doing so. Silverwhite PMed me first, but he is also running the ATP version of the game during that time, so you two work that out for yourselves. It's pretty straightforward to run, and hopefully whoever does so until I make my triumphant return at WIMBLEDON will do an excellent job.

Unlike the WTA, I have the luxury of waiting to do the pointless seedings until after the most recent rankings have come out. You just like to see that little bracketed 1 next to your name.

i know that they are pointless, but i'm playing in many games at this forum, and in most of them i really sucks finally i'm doing well at some game, so i really love to see the number 1 next to my name, although it's worth nothing.
