The Big Match is a game where players have to pick the result of a tennis match. Each player has to pick in the thread the following:

Game duration:


The winner of a round is the one who is the closest to the right score of the match with following criteria:

A: Winner of the match then,

B1: if A, number of correct sets, then number of sets in right order.

B2: if not A, number of sets picked for the winner, then number of sets in right order.

C: After B1 and B2, then number of correct set games overall for the right set (60 61 62 63 64 75 76). If tied, last sets have more priority than first sets.

D: After C, number of correct set games overall for any set. Last real sets have more priority than first sets.

F: After E, closest to correct set game overall per set (last sets have more priority than first sets) (60 61 62 63 64 75 76 67 57 46 36 26 16 06)

G: After F, closest to correct game duration overall.

Each round of a tournament is based on a match to be picked. Matches picked correspond to final rounds of major ATP Tournaments.

- Winner of a tournament is automatically qualified for next QF of tournament (considered as winning 1 round)

Final phase of a tournament is based on QF rounds, then 2 SF rounds, then Final round. It is also combined with the 7 qualifying rounds of next tournament ...
