The Big Match is a game where players have to pick the result of a tennis match. Each player has to pick in the thread the following:

Game duration:


The winner of a round is the one who is the closest to the right score of the match with following criteria:

A: Winner of the match then,

B1: if A, number of correct sets, then number of sets in right order.

B2: if not A, number of sets picked for the winner, then number of sets in right order.

C: After B1 and B2, then number of correct set games overall for the right set (60 61 62 63 64 75 76). If tied, last sets have more priority than first sets.

D: After C, number of correct set games overall for any set. Last real sets have more priority than first sets.

E: After D, sum of closest to correct set game overall for the right set (60 61 62 63 64 75 76 67 57 46 36 26 16 06).

F: After E, closest to correct set game overall per set (last sets have more priority than first sets) (60 61 62 63 64 75 76 67 57 46 36 26 16 06)

WHAT IS A TOURNAMENT IN THE BIG MATCH ?

Each round of a tournament is based on a match to be picked. Matches picked correspond to final rounds of major ATP Tournaments.

Qualifying phase of a tournament are based on 7 rounds. Each winner of a round of qualifying phase is qualified for Quarterfinals of tournament.
- If a player wins 2 qualifying rounds, he is qualified for SF of tournament.

Re: THE BIG MATCH: Play this new game (pick score of Dubai and Acapulco finals)

I hope players are in starting block. In Dubai, the match to be picked will be already great:

(Djokovic or Murray) vs. (Del Potro or Federer)

The name of the finalists should be known tomorrow around 18:00 - 19:00 CET.

In Acapulco, here are the QF Matches:

Ferrer vs. Andujar
Berlocq vs. Giraldo
Wawrinka vs. Chardy
Verdasco vs. Almagro

We will have to wait a few hours more before knowing the name of the finalists.
