2011 Aus Open 'Battle of the Boards' pick 'em contest

We are running another contest where you can pit your wits against players from other tennis boards, e.g. rogerfederer.com, andymurray.com, andyroddick.com, talkabouttennis.com, etc. It works like FITD on here (in the sense that you can enter very quickly by re-using your FITD picks) or the ATP bracket challenge, though the scoring is a bit different.

You can play both as an individual and as a team if your board/forum has at least 5 members, and MTF already had 8 entrants a few hours ago (you can see who on the entry list at the link below) so you've definitely got a team to play for.

Qualifiers have just been placed on the entry form at http://www.freewebs.com/britishtennis/Competitions.html and entries close at 23.59 GMT on Sunday so you have just over 12 hours left to enter.

Good luck!

... and you have the 2nd and 3rd (out of 444) in the individual table too in Deathless Mortal and FERNET!

Apologies for the lack of updates to the main results pages since the end of day 3 - as you'll know if you are following http://www.twitter.com/botb1 on twitter, FTP access has been down for around 30 hours and the company hosting the site seems to be getting nowhere with sorting it out.

I have just posted some up to date results (as at the end of the day session) at http://bit.ly/eewYGJ and I will post some more on that forum at the end of the night session and then post the link on twitter, which will also make it appear on the twitter feed underneath the main links on the BT.net competitions page (which still only contain end of day 3 results) for a little while after I tweet it.

Hopefully they'll sort the FTP access out today and things can get back to normal ... but that's what I said yesterday too! :sad:
