Pick-A-Winner (PAW) ASB Classic 2020

Welcome to Pick-A-Winner (PAW), the Predictions game!




Playing is simple: over the course of the tournament choose any 13 matches in the Main Draw and post who you think will win them.
The scoring points besides each fixture represent the points you score if the corresponding player wins.
Whoever has the most points at the end of the tournament is the winner.
Tie-break in case several players have the same number of points: greater number correct picks, lower number of incorrect picks, the greater points of a single correct pick, the greater second-best pick and so on.

If this is the first time you’re playing or you’re not familiar with the rules of the game, here’s a link: Official PAW rules updated 2020

Commitments
In order to play in this tournament you have to commit in this thread.
The deadline closes when the first Main Draw match starts.
After the deadline closes, you have to ask for a Wildcard.
No commitment means your picks are invalid up until you ask for a Wildcard.
You can commit to only one tournament each week.

Posting picks
You must post your predictions in the format “PAWnn Murray over Federer”, it must be clearly specified who you have predicted to win.
Before posting picks, check that the matches haven't started yet. A pick that is posted after a match started is invalid and may be replaced.
In case a match doesn't take place due to withdrawal or change of the draw, the pick is invalid and may be replaced.
If a player retires or defaulted after the match has started (even if one point was played), the pick is valid.

Changing your picks
If you want to amend a previous pick (cancel or change), quote the original post and add a new message.
Don't edit your posts and never delete them!

Don't forget, you're limited to 13 picks throughout the whole tournament.

Announcements etc.

You are welcome to commit now! Short turn-around for the commitments and start of play. Sorry about that.

Also the brilliance and usability of this new format on MTF means that none of the tables seem to be able to line up correctly. Advanced apologies as I become more and more frustrated. I miss my COLOURS!! :)

GOOD LUCK and happy picking.

WOW, 27 players plus any latecomers!! I'm shocked! :D

Please note that the Players Pick Summary is in post #64. I am only able to edit 10 posts in 7 days and so the leaderboard and pick summary can't be edited in a bit. Hopefully soon, but I doubt it unless I can get the webmasters to lift my curse. (Other managers may find this tough also). @hallso for next week.

Please note that the Leaderboard for Day 1 is in post #67.

Terribly sorry about the last 2 days. Fixed finally and I have phone and internet back on!

Please note that the Players Pick Summary is in post #150
Please note that the Leaderboard for Round 2 is in post #153

Please note that the Players Pick Summary is in post #164
Please note that the Leaderboard for Quarterfinals is in post #166

Final players pick summary and Final Leaderboard are in posts #198/#199 - congratulations @Lee1303
