I felt suddenly quite wildly happy.
Welcome to Brisbane, Australia. The 2015 season & the Australian swing kicks off as the Brisbane International gets underway. One year ago, Jelena Jankovic kicked off her season with a perfect Aussie swing taking the crowns here, in Sydney & in the Australian Open, becoming the 1st PYW#1 since the relaunch of the game. The now world #3 will try to regain some momentum after a slightly less good second half of 2015. Last year's finalist and 2011 champion Andrea Petkovic (PYW#2) is here too, she will be the only other former champion in the draw. Aussies chances will mostly rely on Sam Stosur & Jarka Gajdosovas's shoulders. The Aussies N° 2 & 3, respectively ranked 28th and 31st, will try to be the first aussie winners of the event, in which no local palyers has ever reached the final. Olivia Rogowska, Aussie#4 and PYW#68 will try to rally from the qualies that will also feature PYW#17 Kimiko Date-Krumm as the big favorite.

Playing PYW [Pick-Your-Winner] is simple, for each match proposed, just vote for the player you like best. Each vote will count as one game. You may only vote once during the first 24 hours.
If a round is stuck due to a lack of votes, two feature can be activated:
After 24h : "VOTE AGAIN" : anybody who has already voted a first time can vote again 24 hours after the first vote has been posted. Note that in any case, between your two votes there must be at least 1 other vote AND at least 1 hour.
After 48h: : "DOUBLE POINTS" Any vote after 48h counts for two points.
After 60h: : "SUDDEN DEATH" If a round is still not completed, we'll apply the sudden death rule. If a match isn't over, whoever leads will win the match, if it's a tie, the next vote will decide each match.
