Tennis Win Streak​

Tennis Win Streak is a very simple game to play! I will post one match each day for you to pick the winner of, all you have to do is pick the correct winner!

The aim is to build the longest streak of correct picks that you can. If you pick incorrectly your streak goes back to 0 and you start over. If you miss a day, go on vacation for a month or can't decide on who the winner will be that's fine - your streak will only go back to 0 if you get a pick wrong.

You win points depending on how long each of your winning streaks are (the points scoring system is in post #2).

At the end of each week, the points you won in the previous 7 days are added to your ranking. The ranking system will be the same as used by the ATP, but over a shorter time period of 16 weeks. Each week the points you won 16 weeks ago drop off, to be replaced by the points you won in the previous 7 day period.

Tennis Win Streak - Next match in post #5

Scoring

Code:
1 correct pick= 10 points
2 correct picks in a row= 25
3= 40
4= 60
5= 80
6= 110
7= 140
8= 180
9= 220
10= 270
Scoring examples
Player A picks correctly on Monday but picks incorrectly on Tuesday. He scores 10 points. He then correctly picks the winner of the matches on Wednesday, Thursday & Friday scoring 40 points. He then incorrectly picks on Saturday and Sunday leaving him with 50 points scored for the week.

Player B picks correctly on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday before incorrectly picking on Thursday. He scores 40 points. He then picks the winner on Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday before his streak ends on Tuesday. He scores 100 points for the week. As his second winning streak spanned 2 weeks his score is split across week 1 (40 points for Friday, Saturday & Sunday) and week 2 (20 points for Monday).

Re: Tennis Win Streak - New game starting June 8th!

Thanks for signing up everyone. My plan is to start the game on June 8th as originally planned.

Re: Tennis Win Streak - New game starting June 8th!

Just a quick question for those that have signed up so far.

My plan is to pick the match each day which is the hardest to predict the winner of. In the event there are days when on paper no matches are particularly close I have a few suggestions on what I can do.

Option A: Give the underdog in the match a head start in games (in betting terms this is called an asian handicap). So for example today at the French Open the bookmakers are saying neither match is that tough to call (Djokovic a very heavy favourite & Wawrinka a solid favourite). So to make it more even most bookmakers are giving Murray a 6.5 game handicap versus Djokovic. So if I used this match the question would be whether you think Djokovic would win 7 more games than Murray.

Option B: When possible, use matches from qualifying for Tour level events.

Option C: Use matches from Challenger Tour level events.

Let me know what you think.

Personally I'd like B or C but I'm not sure everyone wanting to play follows qualies and challengers.

I used to include Challenger matches the previous time I ran this game but they weren't as popular as ATP matches.

Another variation for option A is set scores. So again Djokovic to win 3-0 today is near 50/50. So you could pick whether you think he will win 3-0 or whether Murray will win a set.
