RULES AND INFORMATION:
No commitments are necessary for the tournaments. Post your picks in the thread before start of first match, and you IN!




SCORING POINTS SYSTEM:

Code:

If you correctly predict [SIZE=3]2-0[/SIZE] win of WTA better ranked player 
- you reach [SIZE=3]3 pts[/SIZE] for that correct pick.

You have possibility to use [SIZE=3]"JOKERS"[/SIZE] ("X", "X-X", "joker") if you don’t want tip some match 
(you have right to use this posibiliti not more than 1/4 of some round matches - maximum 16 times in 64 matches of R128, 
maximum 8 times in 32 matches of R64, maximum 4 times in R32, maximum 2 times in R16, maximum 1 time in QF, 
and no right to use "jokers" in SF round or Final match)

[B][COLOR=Red]WARNNING:[/COLOR][/B]
Cases of retirement:
If some player retire [B]before[/B] match start or when she lead [B]1-0[/B] - that match is not count!
If some player retire in [B]first set[/B] or when score is [B]1-0[/B] for opposit player - that match 
counted like [B]2-0[/B] win for opposite player!
If some player retire in [B]third set[/B] - that match 
counted like [B]2-1[/B] win for opposite player!
After each round I will update the standings with the points you receive for your picks.

RANKING POINTS:
This is first, unofficial, "demostration" tournament, but of course, in the future

At the end of the each tournament, you will receive ranking points based on where you are in the rankings.
The ranking points you get will be based on the Ranking Points the WTA Players receive for the round they make.
The actual rankings will be calculated after each tournament, and will
be done like the WTA Rankings(except the fact that all tourneys you play in count). They will run on a 12 month system, and you will lose points exactly 12 months after you gain them if you do not defend them. This will help keep the game close and more realistic.
There will also be Race Rankings, which will be accumulated from the first tournament up until the last tournament before the YEC.
The top 8 will make the YEC. After the Year-End Championships, the points will reset and everyone will start the next year from 0.


IMPORTANT MESSAGE:
In best interest of this game future is to have moderator(s)/commisioner(s) who know(s) and use English (much) better than me.
So if you realy like idea of this new game and belive in self - please conntact me in PMs.
My plan is (after RG) to have another "SET POINT GAME" demonstration (Birmingham - Full tournament) and prepare new game managment (without me) for Wimbledon 2006 - first official and ranked tournament of this new game history. If new managment want, I ready to help in math part (like standings, livestats, ratings... etc). THANKS...

Some explanations:

Cp6uja said:
(2) Kim Clijsters BEL vs. (15) Martina Hingis SUI X-X
For this "joker" pick i always reach 2 pts, except in case if Kim or Martina retire before match starting.



Cp6uja said:
(13) Venus Williams USA vs. (16) Nicole Vaidisova CZE 1-2
If Vaidisova win 2-1, i will reach 6 pts. If she win 2-0, or lose2-1, i will reach only 1 bonus pts. If She lose 2-0 i dont reach any pts of that match!

Cp6uja said:
(5) Justine Henin-Hardenne BEL vs. (14) Anna-Lena Groenefeld GER 2-0
If Henin win 2-0 i have 3pts of that pick, if she win 2-1 i have 1 pts, and if she lose this match i have 0 pts.


Cp6uja said:
(10) Svetlana Kuznetsova RUS vs. (17) Dinara Safina RUS 2-1
If Sveta win 2-1 i will reach 4pts. If she win 2-0 or lose 2-1 i will reach 1 pts, and if she lose 2-0 i dont reach any pts.

I'd like to play, but cant do first two QF's:

Henin vs ALG 2-0
Hingis vs Clijsters 1-2

Thanks for playing :wavey: ...

Because this is only "demonstration" your first two "late" tips (Sveta vs. Dinara and Nicole vs. Venus) have "joker" status... but because you have right for only 1 "X-X" "joker", you have 2pts (2pts+ 0pts) for first two pick!
