The game where we pick losers.

Schedule
Day 1-4 - Pick 3 Losers
Day 5-8 - Pick 2 Losers
Day 9-12 - Pick 1 Loser

Submit picks before the first ball hit each day.
Retirements are counted as a result.
No commitment needed - just post your Day 1 picks before the first ball.
In case of a pre-match withdrawal, submit a back-up pick.
Editing your posts with picks is not acceptable.


Example
Day 1 Vanni, Harrison and Kukushkin
BU: Opelka

Elimination
One incorrect pick.

Ranking Points
Day 1 loss - 30
Day 2 loss - 75
Day 3 loss - 125
Day 4 loss - 200
Day 5 loss - 320
Day 6 loss - 400
Day 7 loss - 500
Day 8 loss - 600
Day 9 loss - 750
Day 10 loss - 950
Day 11 loss - 1100
Day 12 loss - 1350
Champion - 2000


day 1 is bottom half 1st rd
day 2 is top half 1st rd
alternate from there

the semis will count as 1 day despite being held on 2 days

1st ball is at 11 am melbourne time - or 7 pm ny time - a bit more than 7 hrs from now.

i don't think anyone else set a thread up for this unless small chance they were on my blocked list.

editing will be a pain - i don't think i can even edit my own picks or haven't figure out how to do so

if someone already set up a similar thread please merge the 2 or at least the picks portions

some guys have same last name

please differentiate (example there is an A harris and an L harris)

not sure i'll be of the mindset to watch to see if people picked a viable pick on each day (meaning a guy playing that day).

SO BE CAREFUL

Joe can you manage? No need to edit the first posts if you can’t edit them, you can just post in the thread.

I don’t think we need to watch the moment the first ball is in play. As long as picks aren’t in by maybe 5 minutes after the start of play in the OOP I think that’s fine. I know when I manage I don’t have any idea when play starts sometimes.

BU: Londero

I don´t want to complain. But this game was started a few hours before first ball. Some managers might not make.
Thread should be opened days ago or start tomorow. Just my opinion.

Thanks for stepping in!
There's no need for being around to see if play has started - you can always check when picks were posted. I think I can be leaving notices if someone was late with picks here during the tourney. It will occur at about 6 AM CET.
