__How to Score a Match__

1) correct picks

the player who has more correct picks is the winner

**in the case of a tie in the number of correct picks the winner should be determined by this order:**

2) set ratios

Code:

player A wins if he has more correct set ratios than player B.

**in case there is a tie in the number of correct SRs, you should use the Set to Winner (incorrect 21 picks) method.**

3) (incorrect 21 picks)

all incorrect picks will be compared, and the player with the most incorrect 2-1 picks will win.

**(in Grand slam best of 5 , all incorrect 3-2 picks count as 2 points and all incorrect 3-1 picks count as 1 point towards Sets Given to Winner total)**
---> if this fails to provide a winner, then the

**tie break** method is :

__Next step__
- 4 matches in the

__order of play__ will be labeled

** PTB** (pick tie break) which will require players to pick the score for tie break purposes, such as 64 63 or 76 76 for example, these matches will be labeled

**PTB1** to

**PTB4**, with

**PTB1** being the first used to settle the

**tie**, if it can't be settled thru

**PTB1**, we would move down the order to

**PTB2** ,

**PTB3** and lastly

**PTB4**.

**4)** **tie breaks** (based on

**PTB1** match first)

-in case

**Player A** chose the correct winner for the

**PTB1** match while

**Player B** didn´t =>

** Player A** wins

-in case

**Player A** and

**player B** chose the correct winner for the

**PTB1** match and only one has the correct

**set ratio** for that match, then the Player with the correct

**set ratio** wins

-in case

** player A** and

**player B** chose the incorrect winner for the

**PTB1** match and only one has the

**incorrect set ratio 21** (versus 20) for that match, then the player with the incorrect 21 set ratio wins

**(In Grand Slam best of 5 , 3-2 will win over 3-1 , and 3-1 wins over 3-0 , incorrect winner pick)**
---> In case Player A and Player B chose the correct winner or both chose loser for the

**PTB1** match and both have the correct/incorrect Set Ratio for that match, winner should be determined by this next methods in

**PTB1** Match (Pick Tie Break) :

**5) tie breaks **(points)

**a) correct order of sets (co)**-> prediction of the correct winner of one or more sets.

Code:

o 1 set – 1 point

o 2 sets – 4 points

o 3 sets – 7 points

o 4 sets – 10 points

o 5 sets – 13 points

**b) correct scorelines (cs)** -> prediction of the exact score of a set won by a player:

Code:

o 1 set – 3 points

o 2 sets – 6 points

o 3 sets – 9 points

o 4 sets – 12 points

o 5 sets – 15 points

o bonus of 2 points for each score line predicted in the correct set.

**c)** total of PTB points (PTB):

**o PTB = CO + CS**

__Sample__

player A chose : 6-4 6-3

player B chose : 7-6 6-4

**actual match** score 63 62

player A CO (4) + CS (3) = **total 7**

player B CO (4) + CS (0) = total 4

**Player A wins**

---> If you can't find a winner after all this, use the who's closer method:

**(WHEN BOTH PLAYERS PICK WINNER)**
__Sample / Both Players MUST have Winner__

Player A chose : 6-4 6-3

Player B chose : 7-6 6-4

total number of games in **actual match** score 75 62 : 7+5+6+2 =20

total number of games in Player A pick: 6+4+6+3=19

total number of games in Player B pick: 7+6+6+4=23

**player A: |19-20|=1**

player B: |23-20|=3

**player A wins** as he is closer to the real score.

---> If instead both players picked the

**LOSER** , use the TB method where the player who gave the winner the most games will win

**(WHEN BOTH PLAYERS PICK LOSER)**
__Sample /Both Players MUST have LOSER __

Player A chose : 6-**4** 6-**3**

Player B chose : 7-**6** 6-**4**

total number of games in Player A pick: 4+3=7

total number of games in Player B pick: 6+4=10

Player A: 7

**Player B: 10**

Player B wins as gave more games to the actual winner in losing pick

---> After Exhausting

**PTB1** MATCH and still tied, try

**PTB2** thru full process , if still tied

**PTB3** thru full process , if still tied

**PTB4** is final Tiebreaking match.

If somehow still tied matches will be decided by predicting the results of another tournament. the players will then send for NEXT ROUND of their current tournament AND for the next day's OOP of whichever other tournament is selected.

__QUICK SUMMARY__
--->If all is tied with same score overall of

**WINNERS/SR/INCORRECT 21 PICKS** , Matches are then settled using first match in OOP, by comparing that match , first comparing the WINNER, then comparing the SET RATIO, then comparing if 1 player has an incorrect 21 and the other does not, if all remains tied after all this, points scoring comes into play using the actual 64 63 for example, and using the formulas to determine the winner. everything is exhausted in the First match, but if remains tied moves to 2nd, then 3rd then 4th.
