According to the challenger thread on MTF, Nishikori won 6-3 7-6, so *Jean* and I win with 2 correct set scores.

I'm not celebrating yet though, because MTF has been wrong before (surely not - yes really)
I'm going to wait until they update the official draw on the ATP site since this is based on someone saying "his friends told him" but if this is the case, you and *Jean* do win 6-0 on PTS

Congrats if that is the case.

I am by no means disagreeing, but can someone explain how the points part of thing actually works? I have been playing this game for almost 2 years and I have no idea what it is about. I take it that picking the same scores for sets is actually a bad thing?

Code:
3. PTS 1 (1-20 in all first round matches)

Both players have incorrect winner in the PTS match: +2 points for every set predicted for the winner

Correct order of sets for:

1 set – 1 point
2 sets – 4 points
3 sets – 7 points
4 sets – 10 points
5 sets – 13 points

Correct scoreline for:

1 set – 3 points
2 sets – 6 points
3 sets – 9 points
4 sets – 12 points
5 sets – 15 points
If you both pick the winner - as was the case here - then it comes down to guessing the correct scoreline. Picking the same score for each set is a little riskier as then unless that comes up the other guy has more chances to get a correct scoreline if he splits his picks. In your case, both you and your partner picked 6-4 for the four winning sets. That's definitely giving an advantage to your opponent IMO

Thanks to *Jean* for a winning partnership.

Congratulations to AdderA216/jcreback. We had all the luck that was going here, so better luck next time.

Well done to ANDRE AGASSI and Dexter in the singles.

And a big thank you to ibreak4coffee for managing. A great tournament made more interesting by reliable live scoring (apart from the final!)
