Choose-Your-Player | Rio Open 500 - Rio | Week 5
Singles Rules(1) CYP is simple and only takes a few minutes each week. All you need to do is choose one player from the draw. The number of points you win from the tournament will depend on how many points your chosen player won in the actual ATP tournament.
(2) A player can only be chosen once.
(3) If you choose an un-seeded player, you must predict how far your chosen player will go into the draw. If you correctly predict that, your points will be doubled.
(4) If you choose a player who is seeded between #1 and #8 in one tournament, at the next tournament -if it is from the same group- you have to choose an unseeded player.
(5) Points will differentiate between levels of tournaments and tournaments will be classified into 3 groups.
Group 1: Grand Slams
Group 2: ATP 1000s
Group 3: ATP 500s
