Predict-the-SCORE #1 (DEBUT)

Yup. The popular game from WTAWorld is finally here!

Special thanks to alwayshingis and SpikeyAidanm, the people who run the game in WTAWorld, for allowing me to run Predict-the-SCORE here.

No committments needed, until we get a forum of our own. More details coming soon!

Re: Predict-the-SCORE #1 (DEBUT)

Predict-the-SCORE
*Copyright alwayshingis - May 8th, 2004 -*
Predict-the-SCORE is a game in which you can predict the actual scores of matches on the ATP tour.

Throughout Roland Garros, you will predict the scores to 54 matches of your choice. However, the matches must be chosen in this breakdown

1st round: 20 matches
2nd Round: 15 matches
3rd Round: 8 matches
4th Round: 5 matches
Quarterfinals: 3 matches
Semifinals: 2 matches
Finals: 1 match

If a match becomes invalid (withdrawals or a retirement during the match) the pick is not counted and you may reuse it any other time during the tournament.

As stated, you don't need to commit to play, until we get our own forum.

Final Ranking for RG:

1. anantak2k – 758
2. Lady – 728
3. willie – 713
4. silverwhite – 698
5. jrm – 681
6. yoyo – 679
7. jazz_girl – 662
8. CoriaFan4ever – 650
9. Hantuchov – 648
10. alwayshingis – 454
11. mardyfishfan – 421
12. GeorgeWHitler – 353
13. WyveN – 348
14. Champion Number 1 - 280
15. edg - 254
16. Yashirobai - 227
17. Jinx - 23
18. sigmagirl91 - 17

Re: Predict-the-SCORE #1 (DEBUT)

Adapted from SpikeyAidanm’s Scoring System (*Copyright SpikeyAidanm - April 9th, 2004 -*)

How the Scoring works:

Correct winner – 10 points

Correct order of sets for:
1 set – 1 point
2 sets – 3 points
3 sets – 5 points
4 sets – 7 points
5 sets – 10 points

Correct scoreline for:
1 set – 2 points
2 sets – 4 points
3 sets – 6 points
4 sets – 8 points
5 sets – 10 points

Correct order of correct scorelines for:
1 set – 2 points
2 sets – 4 points
3 sets – 6 points
4 sets – 8 points
5 sets – 10 points

Explanation of Scoring Points

I know some of you are not very clear of the scoring points, so I will try to explain it to y'all. I think all of you understand "Correct winner" and "Correct scoreline" so I shall explain the other 2.

"Correct order of sets" refers to the correct prediction of which player will win which set.

For example, I predict that Federer will beat Kuerten in straight sets, 6-4 6-3 7-5, which means I'm predicting:
1st set - Federer, 2nd set - Federer, 3rd set - Federer

Federer ends up beating him in straight sets:
1st set - Federer, 2nd set - Federer, 3rd set - Federer
I have 3 sets in the correct order and will earn the respective number of points (i.e. 5).

If you predict the correct order of sets for 4-set and 5-set matches, you get more points than if you do for a 3-set match, since those matches are harder to predict.

"Correct order of correct scorelines" refers to the correct order of the correct scorelines predicted.

For example, if Federer defeats Kuerten 6-4 6-3 7-5:

If I had predicted Federer over Kuerten 6-4 6-3 7-5, I got the correct order of the correct scorelines for 3 sets and will earn the respective points (i.e. 6)

If I had predicted Federer over Kuerten 6-3 7-5 6-4, I got none of the correct scorelines in correct order. Thus, I will earn 0 points for the correct order of correct scorelines, although I will still earn points for guessing the correct scorelines.



(NOTE:
- 5 sets applies to 5-set matches only while 4 sets applies to 4-set and 5-set matches. The rest applies to all matches.
- If you did not predict the winner correctly, you can still win points in the other sections.
- Post your predictions in the form Player X over Player Y or Player X def Player Y)

Feel free to clarify with me if you need any explanation on the scoring system.

Re: Predict-the-SCORE #1 (DEBUT)

r we supposed to post our predictions here... all 51 of ém?...

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

Yup. We're going to have a long thread. The number of predictions for tournaments outside the GSs is usually not more than 28. The number of predictions per round though for RG is not confirmed. I'm trying to standardise it with the Predict-the-SCORE game in WTAWorld.

Why only 13 matches for 2nd round?

We were promised 15 on WTA World! And then 8 for the 3rd

Re: Predict-the-SCORE #1 (DEBUT)

Change of plan, too busy to join in. I'll just sit this game out.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
Allez Gasquet~Mathieu~Wawrinka~Mannarino~+++
