Fill-in-the-Draw 2021

GSTAAD

Swiss Open
Gstaad, Switzerland​

367635



HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

1) No commitment is necessary for this tournament. Simply post your picks in this thread.

2) To play this game, you must post a fully predicted draw for the tournament, including all winners of all matches of all rounds.

3) You must post your fully predicted draw before the first ball of the first main draw match is struck.

4) You are allowed to replace your draw only ONCE per tournament, no matter the circumstances, as long as it is replaced before the first ball of the main draw is struck. If you would like to replace your draw, you MUST post your new draw in a brand new post. Editing your post is NOT allowed under any circumstance.

5) As far as qualifiers are concerned, you may type "Qualifier" or "Q" in your draw if you wish to make your predictions before the qualifiers' names are known, but remember, you must post before the first main draw match begins. If two qualifiers are scheduled to play each other and you are predicting before their names are determined, you must predict based on their placement in the draw. For example, you may type "Qualifier 1" or "Q1" to indicate that the qualifier who is listed first will win, or you may type "Qualifier 2" or "Q2" to indicate that the the qualifier who is listed second will win. If you do not specify Q1 or Q2 when necessary, your pick will not be counted.

6) If a player receives a bye, you will not receive points for predicting them into the second round, but you will still type their name when making your predictions.

7) Scoring goes as follows:
The points you receive will be based on the round Scoring Points for the tournament, as shown in Post #3. For each player you correctly predict winning in the first round, you will receive the points for R1, and so on.

8) The tiebreak rule (for determining the champion) will go by how many correct picks you have in each round. For example:
1. # of correct Final picks
2. # of correct SF picks
3. # of correct QF picks
4. # of correct R16 picks, etc.
and if the players are still tied after counting each round, they will remain tied.

9) REMEMBER, when you post your picks, include ONLY your winners. It will make the manager's job much easier. DO NOT have, "Player1 defeats Player2".

For more info, please feel free to visit the FITD forum in the Games section.

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR PICKS

1) Do your best to spell all names correctly and follow the format in the example code below. It will help me out greatly!

2) Use the draw that is provided in Post #4 to make your predictions.

3) In a case where two qualifiers play each other, please specify which qualifier you want to win, "Qualifier 1" or "Qualifier 2". If you want a qualifier to beat a known player, just type "Qualifier" or "Q".

4) When you make your picks, DO NOT add any spaces in between the rounds, and DO NOT add any unnecessary punctuation, characters, emojis, etc. anywhere within your predictions. (A first initial will sometimes be required, if two players in the draw share a last name.)

If you fail to follow these rules, you risk your draw being discarded.


Here is an example of what your post should look like:

Code:
R1
A. Zverev
Nishioka
Gojowczyk
Seppi
Fucsovics
Delbonis
Mayer
Ramos-Vinolas
Jarry
Thompson
Qualifier
Garin
Qualifier
Londero
Qualifier
Wawrinka
R2
A. Zverev
Gojowczyk
Fucsovics
Mayer
Jarry
Garin
Qualifier
Wawrinka
QF
A. Zverev
Fucsovics
Garin
Wawrinka
SF
A. Zverev

This is an example FITD prediction from Geneva 2019.

STANDINGS - Through Round 1

Normally I give a shoutout to the leaders, but today I have to acknowledge @RNW for a special kind of nonsuccess. @RNW got 2 out of 12 matches correct, and was the ONLY person to lose a finalist out of 48 players. And make that BOTH finalists. (Sorry to kick you while you are down, friend!)
