Challenger Challenge 2017 #33 - Congrats francepes! Ezequiel Pereyra is the RU! :)

CHALLENGERS CHALLENGE 2017 #33 - FOR CHALLENGER LOVERS!


About Challengers Challenge

Challengers Challenge is the MTF game made especially for those members who like following ATP Challengers during the whole season. If you're one of them (or just wanna be one ), try this game! The first installment which started in the summer of 2007 was a success, and 2008 was a successful full season.

How to play

The game is very simple. It's a game of predicting champions, finalists and semi-finalists of challengers tournaments. As soon as the main draw of each tournament is out, each player will predict the champion, runner-up, and semi-finalists from each half of the draw.

SCORING SYSTEM

Champion correct: 450 points
Finalist correct: 250 points
Semi-finalist correct: 100 points

The scoring points will be accumulative. So, if you get the four semi-finalists right, the two finalists right and also the correct champion, you'll get 900 points. But if you do this, you'll receive 100 additional points for a total of 1000 points!

BACK-UP PICK
- In each tournament of the week, players are allowed to make as many as four back-up picks, ONE FROM EACH QUARTER OF THE DRAW. If one of the predicted players for the SF, F and Champion withdraws and not entered into the main draw, the back-up is used. IF NONE OF THE PREDICTED PLAYERS WITHDRAW, THE BACK-UP IS NOT USED AND YOU DON'T EARN ANY POINTS FOR IT!

Here's an example on how to predict:

Prostejov
SF: Djokovic, Murray
F: Nishikori
W: Wawrinka
BU: Tomic, Isner, Anderson, Monfils

NEVER EDIT YOUR POSTS!!!!!!

MANAGER'S ANNOUNCEMENTS

Greetings!
Good Evening!
We're about to start a new week! Also this time we'll have 5 Tournaments all over the World: 3 in Europe, 1 in Far East and 1 in North America. This time, all the 5 Tournaments will start on the same day (Saturday) with Qualifiers, so we shouldn't have the problem we had last week, with Sevilla starting on Monday and all the rest on Tuesday. This time all Main Draw matches should begin on Monday, the details will be revailed in the next hours.
PS. After Zhangjiagang, Szczecin was the name I needed to spell something easily.
Good luck to all!

Tournaments Info
1) Szczecin, Poland - Outdoor Clay - GMT+2 (CEST) Time Zone || Prize Money: $127,000 +H
2) Istanbul, Turkey - Outdoor Hard - GMT+3 Time Zone || Prize Money: $75,000 +H
3) Shanghai, China - Outdoor Hard - GMT+8 Time Zone || Prize Money: $75,000
4) Cary, NC, U.S.A. - Outdoor Hard - GMT-4 Time Zone || Prize Money: $50,000 +H
5) Banja Luka, Bosnia & Herzegovina - Outdoor Clay - GMT+2 (CEST) Time Zone || Prize Money: $43,000 +H

Saturday Update
Qualifiers for all 5 Tournaments step on court today!
1) In Szczecin on Tomorrow will be played 2nd Round, Final Round should be played on Monday morning, so Main Draw will start on Monday in the late morning / early afternoon.
2) In Istanbul played both 1st and 2nd Round today. Tomorrow in the morning they will play Final Qualifying Round, so most likely Main Draw should start from the early morning of Monday.
3) In Shanghai we have the same situation of Szczecin, so Main Draw matches should start on Monday in the late morning / early afternoon local time (take care of the Deadline here, because of the Asiatic Time Zone it should be the 1st Tournament to start!!!).
4) In Cary, due to American Time Zone, Qualifying 1st Round is just started, in the evening they should reveal the Main Draw, the only one missing. Today only 1st Round will be displayed, so most likely Main Draw matches will start when in Europe will be Monday late afternoon / late morning local time.
5) In Banja Luka on tomorrow will be played just 2nd Round Qualifying, so also here, Deadline should be on Monday late morning / early afternoon.

YOU CAN START POSTING YOUR PICKS!!!

Re: Challenger Challenge 2017 #33 - ALL Main Draws OUT! || POST YOUR PICKS!!!

Sunday Update ||| DEADLINES

1) OOP for Monday in Szczecin is out! 1st ball of the Main Draw will be played not before 2.30 PM Local Time (CEST) [Final Qualifying Rounds start from 11 AM local time];
2) In Istanbul Main Draw matches will start by the noon (OOP), from 12 AM Local Time (GMT+3), so when in Central Europe will be 11 AM [Final Qualifying Rounds already played today];
3) In Shanghai we can see from the OOP that MD matches will start after Qualifiers, so, as reported from the sheet, not before 11 AM Local Time, but in my opinion, most likely not before 11.30 AM local time. Remember that due to the different time zone, this will be the FIRST Deadline, take care (In Central Europe will be 5 AM). [Final Qualifying Rounds start from 10 AM local time];
4) In Cary we're still waiting for Monday's OOP; for sure, Final Qualifying Round will be played today after 2nd Round (that is still running right now). I think that they will start not before 10 AM Local Time (4 PM in Central Europe), but it's possible that they'll start also 2 or maybe 4 hourse later;
5) In Banja Luka (OOP) Main Draw matches will start on tomorrow not before 11 AM Local Time (CEST); also here most likely there will be some delay, at least half an hour [Final Qualifying Rounds start from 10 AM local time].

In Szczecin Vatutin, De Greef and Satral have already Withdrawn! Until now, the only player picking one of them (Vatutin) is @Markmik . If you want you're in time to re-post your picks! (otherwise he'll be replaced by Oscar OTTE, your Back-Up).
