Predict the Quallies - US Open!! -- PICK NOW!

Predict-the-Qualies - US Open

Introduction

You think you know who will qualify for the main draw? Here's your chance to prove it. In this game the players try to predict all 16 qualifiers that will survive the three rounds of matches. It won't be easy as the qualies are known to be unpredictable and full of tight matches.

How to play

It's easy, just post your picks here after the draw has been made. You must pick one player from each of the 16 sections in the draw. The picks must be posted before the start of play on Tuesday. Anyone can play.

The format to use when posting your picks:

1. [1] Capdeville, Paul
2. Hrbaty, Dominik
3. [28] Devvarman, Somdev
4. [WC] McKenzie, Brendan
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
11.
12.
13.
14.
15.
16.

The first number refers to the section of the draw in which the player is (from top to bottom). The easiest way to send picks is to copy the draw posted in here, choose one player from each section and then erase the other names away. If a player is seeded in the draw, please write the seeding number before the players name. It will help the managers work.

Scoring points

When you correctly predict a qualifier, you'll score points in the following manner:

1 point - if the player is seeded
1.5 points - if the player is unseeded
2 points - if the player is a WC entry and unseeded

The winner of the contest is the one who scores the most points. If the points are tied, the one with the most correct predictions wins.

GOODLUCK!!
