2008 Arse Clown Contest Main Draw and News/Info Thread
The contest will be starting tomorrow.
- The voting will be done on PYW format best of 5 sets, the 5th set will be advantage. This means that 1 vote will = 1 game, though if the set goes to a tie breaker, then it will be 2 votes per game instead of one.
Cause, we know how many whiners there are around. Voting times will be staggered throughout various time zones and no postal votes will be accepted. Jimnik's suggestion which is to schedule, 16 matches to start at a certain time then the next 16 two hours later. All times will be stated in the Thread as GMT.
Each batch of matches will have its own thread so people won't get mixed up. Judging by previous voting patterns most matches will finish before the next batch are due to start. Also this will make the votes easier to tally for the vote counters.
Last of all, the Mods will be watching this contest very closely, so you can take that however you want it. In other words, if you want to give reasons for your votes, which is acceptable but be prepared for some editing if it goes over the top, according to the powers at me. No, this does not mean that I will be editing posts.
The bolded paragraph is to ensure that people can't complain about not being warned. Yes, this is meant to be a fun contest.
“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
Machado wins 6-2 6-1
I definitely would have preferred Gaba winning as he needs the points much more, but Jan would have beaten him anyway. I expect Hajek to destroy Machado, like 6-1 6-2.
