PYW Sydney

Welcome to Sydney, Australia. The Aussie swing continues with the Apia International. Jelena Jankovic, winner of the last 3 eidtions of the tournament decided not to come and defend her chances this year, leaving the tournament wide open for the competition. Aussie's own Gajdosova will be one to watch, as a dfending runner-up and former champion, she might get another good run in a tournament that has always been good for her. Sabine Lisicki, the 2010 Champion and last palyer to win before the jankovic-era, will also try her chance at grabbing again the Sydney trophy.

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.
