Default Wimbledon Competition

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.

If there are any queries or adjustments you think should be made, don't hesitate to contact me.
