Play NEW game !!! Tennis Winning Streak 2009

TENNIS WINNING STREAK 2009


This is a game where you have to predict daily one winner in a list of possible matches (selected by the manager, the most tricky ones of the day, could be from 3 to 10)
The goal is to have the biggest winning streak. If you lose one day, your counter is reset to 0 and you are allowed to restart another winning streak.

You can skip some days whenever you want. The only mandatory thing is that you can only select maximum 1 match per day.

You can start a new streak whenever you want. Every day, a new updated ranking will be published with current winning streak per player and highest winning streak per player.

This means you can play whenever you want. For instance, if you want to have your winning streaks when playing only during week-ends, that is fine.

In case of retirement of a player or w.o., the match does not count. In that case, if there are still matches remaining, you can pick another winner in the remaining matches of the day if you wish.

If you wish to change one pick, that is possible as long as match of your initial pick has not started. Just reply to your initial post by indicating your change. If, by error you send 2 different picks (without any explicit reply that it replaces the previous one) for the same day in the thread, only the first pick will count.

TT Singles Year-End Rankings:
2014: 50
2012: 98 (W: Bucharest)
2011: 65
2010: 34 (W: Memphis)
2009: 61
2008: 63

Re: Play NEW game !!! Tennis Winning Streak 2009

If I forget or miss picking in one day, do my streak keep alive or not?

Nice idea btw.

Yes. Or if you prefer to not send picks one day because the proposals are too risky, you can do it, your streak will still keep alive.

I tried to make it as simple as possible. If you go on vacation and are back one month later, the winning streak is still valid.
