I felt suddenly quite wildly happy.
PYW Double Auckland
Welcome to Auckland, New Zealand. The 2015 is starting, and makes on if its oldest stop in New Zealand's ASB Classic. Last year winner's Lucie Safarova did not take part in the double event this year, but her then partner Andrea Hlavackova reunited with her long-time partner Lucie Hradecka and together they should be one of the teams to beat in this event. Marina Erakovic, the kwii #1 and a former finalist in doubles here, will join forces with Monica Puig from puerto Rico to try and reach another final on home soil.

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.
