Welcome to Pick-A-Winner (PAW), the Predictions game!

Playing is simple: over the course of the tournament choose any 13 matches in the Main Draw and post who you think will win them.
If this is the first time you’re playing or you’re not familiar with the rules of the game, here’s a link to the official PAW rules and FAQs thread on WTA world.

In order to play in this tournament you should have posted a commitment to play here in this thread.
The deadline for commitments is October 22 2006.
If you haven't posted a commitment until midnight (local time) on October 22, you can ask for a wildcard. The number of WCs is limited to 5 per tournament.
Any pick posted without having a WC or early commitment is not valid.
Please note: You can make commitments for future tournaments on the same thread.

Please note the following instructions, in order to make the manager's task easier...

Please post your picks in the following format:
PAW# Player A (winner) over/def Player B (loser)
# number of pick in ascending order (1 to 13)
Please use the official last names of players, not nicknames.
In case of 2 players with the same last name in the tournament, for example Nicolas and Giovanni Lapentti, please add the first name or at least the initial (N for Nicolas, G for Giovanni etc.).
A valid pick must include the names of both players (winner first) and the word over or def.

Before posting picks, check that the matches haven't started yet.
A pick that is posted after a match started is invalid and may be replaced.

In case a match doesn't take place due to withdrawal or change of the draw, the pick is invalid and may be replaced.
If a player retires or defaulted after the match has started (even if one point was played), the pick is valid.

If you want to ammend a previous pick (cancel or change), quote the original post and add a new message. Don't edit the post and never delete it!

Don't forget, you're limited to 13 picks throughout the whole tournament.

Tie break rules:
In case several players have the same number of points, the following rules will be used to determine their ranking:
1. The greater number of correct picks.
If there is still a tie then:
2. The greater points of a single pick.
If there is still a tie then the greater second-best pick, and so on.
No pick will be considered better than 0 pts.
3. If there is still a tie then players will stay tied.

Good luck!
