FITD Capitala World Tennis Championship 2010 | Congrats to Machine-Man!



Here's what you need to know:
1) No commitments are necessary for the tournaments. Simply post your picks in the thread. You may play more than one event per week.

2) To play this game, you will post a full predicted draw for the tournament, including all winners in all matches of all rounds.

3) You must post your full prediction before the first ball of the first main draw match is struck.

4) If a player withdraws after you have made your prediction, you MAY ONLY alter your pick if the withdrawing player was seeded. However, if the player who withdrew is not a seed, you may not replace.
Unless a seeded player withdraws, you are not allowed to change picks after the first post.
If you are changing picks due to the withdrawal of a seed, you must post your picks in a new post. No editing posts under any circumstances.

5) As far as qualifiers are concerned, you may post just "Q" in you predictions if you wish to make them before the qualifiers are placed, or you may wait until they are placed to predict, but remember that you must post before the first match begins. If two qualifiers play each other, and you are predicting before they are placed, you must predict based on their placement in the draw. For instance, you may say "Qualifier 1 d. Qualifier 2" which would indicate a prediction that the qualifier who is listed first in the draw would win.

6) If a player receives a bye, you do not get points for predicting them into the second round.

7) Scoring goes as follows:
The points you receive will be based on the round points for the tournament. For each player you predict correctly into the second round, you receive the round points for a first round victory, and so on.

8)The tiebreak rule is to go by how many correct picks the players had in each round, (for example)
1. # of correct Final picks
2. # of correct SF picks
3. # of correct QF picks
4. # of correct R16 picks, etc.
and if the players are still tied after each round, then who posted draw first he is winner, so this tornament must have winner.


9) PLEASE REMEMBER:
-When you post your picks, please list ONLY the winners of each round. DO NOT have 'Player A d. Player B' as it will make the manager's job much easier
-Also, please do not use smilies in your picks, there is really no need for it.

For more info, please feel free to visit the FITD forum in the games section.

Federer v Bye
Soderling v Wawrinka
Ferrer v Davydenko
Bye v Nadal

First see post #6 and then post your draw!


There are no Round 1, Round 2, Round 3, there are only QFs.

Code:
Correct pick in:
QF - 2
SF - 4
F - 8

Re: Capitala World Tennis Championship Exhibition 2010 - Abu Dhabi, FITD 2010



It's easiest for me if you just enter the winner of a match, with no spaces between rounds, as in

1st Round
Player A (last name only)
Player B (last name only)
Player C (last name only)
...
2nd Round
Player A (last name only)
Player B (last name only)
Player C (last name only)
...
QF
etc., (see example)

Dont make spell mistakes, do not send seed numbers, country names! JUST ONLY SURNAMES!

I started this rule because it is problably to players be tied, so tournament will have two or more winners. I started this rule so one player must win.
