Predict-the-Score #13: Barcelona 2008



*Copyright alwayshingis - May 8th, 2004 -*

Predict-the-SCORE is a game in which you can predict the actual scores
of matches on the ATP tour.

Throughout, you will predict the scores to 26 matches of your choice.
However, the matches must be chosen in this breakdown:

1st Round: 8 matches
2nd Round: 7 matches
3rd Round : 5 matches
Quarterfinal: 3 matches
Semifinal: 2 matches
Final: 1 match

If a match becomes invalid (withdrawals or a retirement during the match)
the pick is not counted and you may reuse it any other time during the
tournament.

As stated, you don't need to commit to play. :)

TankingTheSet

Just a note, when I run a tournament I use the rule that replacement picks must be used in the immediately following round, otherwise they are forfeited (although new replacement picks can be created if a replacement is also void). It's up to manager to decide because there aren't clear rules about it, but I just like to note it for the next time when you play in a tournament I manage.

Edit: Actually the rules on the first post say you can use replacement picks at any time, I will be careful with that next time I manage a tournament.
