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.

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).

My current live streak of 4 is based entirely on picking Sousa to win! :laugh2:
A shame there isn't another Sousa match for me to pick...



For this match I'll go for-

Gabashvili

Yet another "upset" means since the start of last week everyone playing the game has a combined correct pick percentage of 33 :tape:
