well, that's weird. Maybe I subconsciously aimed at provoking you mathematicians (you and Slasher), or maybe because your Gasquet defeated my Davydenko in Doha and I was subconsciously pissed, but I didn't do it consciously/intentionally, I swear. Quote:

However, ban or not and lying or not are not the points anyway. Although I'm the thread starter I really don't think I'm empowered of breaking the rules (or changing them during the contest), i.e. allowing late entries, thus virtually handicapping 60 people (as explained in the other post). (Btw, there was also one other poster a little late, after you.) Since many people participate in the contest I should treat things with some practical seriousness now, even if the whole thing is rather for fun actually. What's the big deal with not being included in the contest part? This thread is not only for the contest. You can also settle your predictions here just like that (in order to compare it later with what happened really, what you expected and what surprised you). Yes, we know you're a Tipsarevic fan and probably you would have picked him anyway. (What I accused you of earlier as well as what I said about Djokovic at AbuDhabi 2011 and so on was rather theoretically / a general issue.) Moreover you've been just a little late, not much. Hence you certainly won't go unnoticed if your predictions/picks turn out to be correct at the end of the season. |

The deadline: Even if an Exho the AbuDhabi tournament is best for deadline since information is more important than a few ranking points. AbuDhabi already holds a lot of information about the shape of several top players, probably more than Doha/Brisbane/Chennai and Sydney/Auckland combined. The awarded ranking points for the latter are comparatively unimportant. For example, at the 2011 AbuDhabi edition it became clear that Djokovic fully recovered from his back injury, which was pretty uncertain beforehand! At last year's edition Nadal withdrew from the Australian Open during AbuDhabi. Moreover, this thread is intended to be a relaxed Off-season activity. I mean, it's almost the same if you settle your picks on 6th or 26th December. Not much happens during that three weeks. Whereas predictions during the AbuDhabi tournament already imply an advantage in information. It would be bad if most entrants waited with their predictions until the end of December. |

If that proves to be true I will remove them from the list of entrants as well as from the stats later on. Just as last year there was just one entrant who marched to a different tune, and just as last year it was precisily the last entrant (before the deadline), who did so. I don't really know what to make of this "tradition". ...Checking back our predictions will start to become interesting after the US Open. .
