Welcome to Fill-In-The-DOUBLES-Draw
AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2012 SPECIAL EDITION
This is a special edition game. It's just like FITD but we'll pick from the doubles draw.
Please understand that there are no ranking points to win. I hope to run it for other slams as well if there is any interest. Good Luck!
Here's what you need to know:
1) No commitments are necessary for the tournaments. Simply post your picks in the thread.
2) To play this game, you will post a full predicted doubles 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) Every player can replace his/her draw only once per tournament whatever the reason of replacement.
If you are changing picks, you must post your picks in a new post. No editing posts under any circumstances.
5) 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.
6) 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 counting each round, they will remain tied.
7) PLEASE REMEMBER:
When you post your picks, please list ONLY the winners of each round.
I would appreciate it if you could just use the one-player-name-per-team draw posted in post #5 of this thread. Please use the Draw in post #4 as reference only.

***I had to make a new spreadsheet because I was having too many problems, hopefully everything is taken care of for round 1. Please post on the thread if you think something is wrong.
***3 Teams have been replaced by ALTs:
LU TPE / TIPSAREVIC SRB is replaced by AKAMKE GER / NIELSEN DEN (ALT)
ANDERSON RSA / DE VOEST RSA is replaced by MELLO BRA / SOUZA BRA (ALT)
CLEMENT FRA / DLOUHY CZE is replaced by GIL POR / GIMENO-TRAVER ESP (ALT)
***Special thanks to coonster14. I used his/her FITD thread as a template to start this thread.
***Also special thanks to Hazem, I will be using his/her spreadsheet to manage FIT-Double-D.
Is FITD double gonna be held regularly or just GS events ??

Great work Bashak. Would love for FITD doubles to come in regulary but i think we would strugle to find enough managers.
01-19-2012, 10:13 AM
I see, so it's probably gonna be held in GS only then :)

Guys, first day scores will slightly change later today because I have to double check everyone's draw and replace the ALT teams for the people who used my draw. If you already took the Alts into account, your score won't change.
