How to play:

Post your predictions for who you think will reach the Wimbledon Quarterfinals, Semifinals and Final. For countback provisions, also post the set-score of the FINAL only, and the number of games the winner will win by. (In the event of a forfeit/withdrawal, all remaining sets and games are awarded to the winner ie. a withdrawal = 3-0 sets, and a win by 18 games, or, a forfeit at 6-3 5-7, results in a 3-1 set victory by 11 or 13 games, depending on which player retires).

You may also post a wildpick, ie. a non-seeded player who you think has a good chance at reaching the QF and beyond.


Scoring will be as follows:

-8 points per correct Quarterfinalist
-12 points per correct Semifinalist
-20 points per correct Finalist
-50 points per correct Winner
(scoring applies to a wildpick as it would any other selected player).


Card example:

QF:
player A v player H
player B v player G
plaver C v player F
player D v player E

Wildpick: player X

SF:
player A v player D
player B v player C

F:
player A to defeat player B by 3 sets to 1, and 5 games.

The winner will be crowned "Mr. Wimbledon", or any other deserving title that can be agreed upon.


Entries close at the start of play on day 1.
