A game for the Slams and the YEC. The results of all 5 tournaments will be added up for the 2020 competition.
A pretty simplistic or small game that can still be tricky.
Anyone can play, and here is how it works:

1. Main Prediction: Give your top 6 favorites for winning the tournament.
2. Runner-up Prediction: Give your top 6 favorites for losing in the final.

(If you skip this part, your 'Main Prediction' will automatically be used for it too, just with your first and second pick swapped.)
3. SF Prediction: And who will lose in the Semis? Your 'Runner-up Prediction' will automatically be used for this part too, just that your 1st will be swapped with your 3rd and your 2nd will be swapped with your 4th. ?
(If you've skipped the Runner-up part, your 'Main Prediction' will automatically be used also for the SF part instead of your RU Prediction.)

Awarded Game Points + Example of a prediction post:
Federer (<- worth 600 points, if he wins)
Nadal (<- worth 500 points, if he wins. ...etc)
Djokovic
Murray
Wawrinka
Dimitrov (<- worth 100 points, if he wins)

Runner-up:
Nadal (<- worth 60 points, if he finishes runner-up. ...etc)
Federer
Djokovic
Murray
Wawrinka
Tomic (<- worth 10 points, if he finishes runner-up)

(And the automatically derived SF points can be: 6 / 5 / 4 / 3 / 2 / 1.)
So you can earn (600 + 60 + 11[6+5]) x 5[tournaments] = 3355 points in your quest to win the TopFavorites Challenge 2020. :cool:
The 'Main Prediction' is by far the most important element of this game while the 'SF Prediction' is only like a tiebreak. For the SF part you basically don't need to do anything, but perhaps it will influence your RU part strategy a little bit.

Deadline is the start of the first Main Draw match.
