Initial post, 01-05-2009:

After popular demand, the MIT (Metis Invitational Trophy) competition returns for its second year in the MTF Nadal forum. Initially conceived as an idea by Linda (l_mac) and myself, it has grown in popularity and prestige over the last year.


Maybe we should call it the MLIT or LMIT (Metis & Linda Invitational Trophy); that way we would avoid confusion with the (equally prestigious) Bostonian University. What do you think?


I thought it would be more convenient to have a separate thread to post the results of our competition. Things will still go on the same way as last year with updates after each round in the tournament thread. However, after the completion of each tournament that our dear Rafito plays ( ) I will post the final results here and update the rankings table (move over Judio ); maybe include the collection of FAIL photos as well.






And now I want to call your attention to the RULES OF THE COMPETITION:

Quote:

- In each tournament Rafa plays, people predict how far he will go by posting in the respective tournament thread started in the Nadal forum (or by sending me a PM). Everyone is welcome to participate.

- No predictions will be accepted after the beginning of Rafa's first match. You can change your prediction until that time.

- The posters that picked the correct round will receive points equal to the ranking points awarded by ATP to the winner of the tournament. The rest will win zero points.

- At the end of the season the poster(s) with the highest score will win the ...Metis Invitational Trophy!

Restrictions: Rafa and his immediate family and friends are not allowed to participate in this contest!

Re: The MIT Competition result thread: Congrats to the 2008 winners :aparty:

The end of the 2008 MIT competition was a bit anticlimactic due to Rafa's withdrawal from the Master's Cup in Shanghai () and we didn't get to see a proper fight for the no1 spot. However, based on the points accumulated from the previous tournaments, the rankings were as follows:

And now, before the 2009 competition begins let's take this opportunity to officially present the winners of the 2008 season GuiroNl and Xoman with their spectacular trophy:






Many congratulations to GuiroNl and Xoman for this achievement!!! In addition to the above trophy (and of course our respect and admiration) they have also won a 2-week trip on a luxurious cruise ship, offered by the sponsor of this competition:

Metis you should have displayed the trophy early on last year. It would have definitely spurred the competitors into action

It took some time to finalize the trophy design Hema. There was a competition and several artists submitted their ideas. It was a tough decision but in the end the combination of uniqueness and unconventional beauty was what we went for. I also appreciated the goat resemblance; I thought it was nice touch.

You should have changed your prediction to QF like you were thinking. You would be the sole winner now.

I really would have if he hadn't been seeded to play Monfils. You know I can't predict he loses to someone I hate.

Re: The MIT Competition result thread: MASSIVE FAIL in Doha :tape:

Hi Metis!
Congrats GuiroNl and Xoman!
The trophy is gorgeous! (Metis, will it be the same this year?) One of its kind! And the cruise...simply luxurious!!!

I'm shocked at Nadal's defeat, but just as surprised no one made a correct prediction. So we all have to wait for AO for any real action on our MIT rankings...

Re: The MIT Competition result thread: MASSIVE FAIL in Doha :tape:

sorry for my bad mouth, metis, this trophy looks horrible for me

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.
