PYW Scottsdale - First round :) - Please vote!
Welcome to PYW Scottsdale
This first post in the thread is devoted to the rules of the new game on MTF: PYW. The draw appears in the second thread. Please vote!
Some of the MTF members that are also members of WTAworld might know the game called Pick-Your-Winner [PYW]. PYW is an entire Tour of its own. It features all the ATP events above Challenger level.
How it works:
Every week, we start with the real-time draw of the ATP events. This includes wild cards and qualifiers. From there, posters have to pick the player they like most in each match up. That makes it a unique popularity contest. So if Olivier Rochus plays Marat Safin in the first round, and you are a big Oli fan, you would vote for Olivier Rochus.
Every vote counts as a game. The first vote will be the first game in the match; the second vote will be the second game. All matches are Best of three sets. This also goes for Grand Slams, cause they would take too long to complete otherwise. A tie-break consists of one vote only.
The winners of each match move on to the next round. Eventually, there will be a final between two players. Whoever wins that can call himself the proud winner of a PYW event!
All rounds will feature live scores to see who is leading who. For this, PYW needs some people that will help run the game on MTF. I myself will be doing this, and hopefully some other people will join.
PYW will also have rankings, so we can actually keep track of who is most popular. Only the Top 8 players will play the TMS Cup in Shanghai!
How to participate:
All the PYW threads will be in the Tournament forums on MTF You cannot miss them. So just vote for who you like most!
