Predict-the-SCORE #2: Queen's 2004

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, you will predict the scores to 24 matches of your choice. However, the matches must be chosen in this breakdown

1st round: 7 matches
2nd Round: 6 matches
3rd 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 League Table:

1. jrm - 268
2. silverwhite - 265
3. anantak2k - 259
4. mardyfishfan - 237
5. Yoav - 228
6. Lady - 227
7. jazz_girl - 200
8. Hantuchov - 52
8. |zhao| - 52
10. Lieve - 28
11. willie - 25

Re: Predict-the-SCORE #2: Queen's 2004

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 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 #2: Queen's 2004

1. Max Mirnyi def Nicolas Mahut 6-4 6-4
2. Mario Ancic def Qualifier 6-4 6-3
3. Mark Philippoussis def Qualifier 6-4 6-4
4. Wayne Arthurs def Lu Yen Hsun 7-6 6-3
5. Thomas Enqvist vs Qualifier 6-4 7-6
6. Dmitry Tursunov def Marc Lopez 6-3 4-6 6-4
7. Taylor Dent def Qualifier 6-4 6-3
8. Ivo Karlovic def Jan-Michael Gambill 7-6 7-6
9. Julien Benneteau def Antony Dupuis 6-3 6-4
10. Robbie Ginepri over Cyril Saulnier 6-4 6-4
11. Qualifier (Todd Reid I think) def Thierry Ascione 6-4 3-6 6-4
12. Goran Ivanisevic def Victor Hanescu 7-6 4-6 7-6

I picked 12 matches but if I am supposed to pick less just down count the rest of the bottom... For instance if we can only pick 8 just dont count 9 thru 12...

PAW Singles Ranking - 396
TITLES (TMS Rome 04', Rolland Garros 04', Wimbeldon 04')
RUNNER-UP (Rosmalen 04' US Open 04')
