Small update in B1 rule:


B1: if A, number of correct sets, then number of sets in right order. If correct number of sets in right order, then closest to right score (60 61 62 63 64 75 76).

Player A pick: Djokovic 6/2 7/5
Player B pick: Djokovic 7/5 6/2
Result: Djokovic 6/4 6/3

Player A: (6/4 vs. 6/2 = 2) + (7/5 vs. 6/3 = 2) = 4
