PYW Shenzhen

Welcome to Shenzhen, China. Stacey would never allow 2015 to start without one of her beloved chinese tournament, even if it makes no sense whatsoever in the calendar and if the players have to freeze their asses off, so Welcome to the second edition of the Shenzhen Open! (if you laughed about this, please take Stacey'spunishment and repeat ten times "China is a great market for women's tennis, we believe in China, China is great, we love it") Last year winner Vera Zvonareva will once again attempt a come-back year, after a very light but succesful 2014 in PYW, that saw her won Wimbledon and reach the final of the masters. After Zheng Jie last year, China will hope for another home girl to reach the final this year, with Peng Shuai as the best chancefor the country. Let the fun begin!

How To Play

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.
