The MIAMI MASTERS 'BATTLE OF THE BOARDS' PICK 'EM contest is open for entries at http://www.freewebs.com/britishtennis/Competitions.html
(N.B. if you have played before, you might notice that this is a slightly different URL, that's simply due to a temporary problem with the britishtennis.net domain name)
Qualifiers are likely to be placed by about 22.00 GMT today, Tuesday, if you prefer to wait for those before entering. Entries will close at 14.00 GMT / 15.00 CET / 10 am US EDT on WEDNESDAY.
We runthese competitions for all of the slams and about half of the Masters events - it works like FITD on here or the ATP Bracket Challenge (so you can enter in a couple of minutes by re-using your picks for either of those contests) but with a different scoring system (which balances the effects of rounds a bit more) and a team element - as well as playing for the individual title, you can compete against RogerFederer.com, AndyMurray.com, AndyRoddick.com, BritishTennis.net, etc, to help MTF to win the team title too.
There is also a Hall of Fame and an overall year-round ranking system - your best 7 scores from up to 9 tournaments count, with slam scores allowed to count twice, so you actually end up counting 7 scores from 13.
While anyone who enters will count towards the individual competition, you need at least five entrants for MTF to end up counting as a full team - you usually manage that fairly easily though and you actually won Miami last year - see http://www.freewebs.com/britishtenni...09mitm.htm?n=1
- so you are the defending champions!
That means lots of team ranking points to defend too, of course ...
