AND DON'T FORGET SURNAMES ONLY - CAN YOU PLEASE SEND THEM EXACTLY AS WRITTEN IN THE OOP ABOVE AND PLEASE CAN YOU ALSO PUT SINGLES/DOUBLES/BOTH IN THE HEADER
From the rules thread regarding incorrect picks - we really don't want to have to use it but note it does exist:-
a) If someone sends before OOP is posted then no punishment.
b) First time = a warning (manager should PM the player back)
c) Second time = a point penalty
EXPLANATION (How to send in picks):
Match with SR after it's name - Pick the winner and the sets (Ex: Verkerk 2-0)
Match with SR PTS after it's name - Pick the whole score (Ex: Hernandez 36 75 61)
Do NOT send first names, nationality etc.
James Blake (USA) vs Ivan Ljubicic (CRO) SR1 PTS
Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) vs Tommy Robredo (ESP) SR2 PTS
Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs Ricardo Hocevar (BRA) SR3
Alejandro Falla (COL) vs Takao Suzuki (JAP) SR4
Blake 61 62
Youzhny 63 64
As is now tradition in my events – just for fun I’ll be handing out a daily Eager Beaver Award each day
which will go to the first person to send in picks after the OOP is posted – so plenty of players at all levels
will have a chance of winning something this week.
