    My first time running the event for Australia. Hope all of you had a great new year and fabulous break from tennis. Things are going to get heated up now. The dark horses of Australia will bring in some fun entetainment.

    The rules are the same as with any grand slam. Everyone starts of fresh....hopeully many new people come to play and veterans come to ward them off their thrones.

    I've added the Olympics, Davis Cup and other 250's to this year's challenges.

    1. Every day of the tournament that day's matches will be posted. You pick one player who you think is going to win. It's a knock out-system: if the player you picked wins, you're through to the next round. If he loses, you're out.

    2. Till the round of 16, you have to pick one player per day. In the round of 16, quarters, semis and finals you pick one player per round.

    3. During a tournament, you can pick a player only ONCE. Obviously it's important to make smart choices in order to get far. If you somehow have no players left to pick, you're out as well.

    4. You can't pick a player from a match that has started already.

    5a. If the player you picked retires during the match, you're out. If he retires before the match, you're allowed to change your pick.

    5b. If the opponent of the player you picked retires, it counts like a win. However, you can't pick a player whose opponent had already retired from the tournament.

    6. If you want to change you pick, make a new post quoting the old pick. Edited posts containing picks will not be taken into account.

    SCORE FOR THIS TOURNAMENT
    1 correct picks: 50
    2 correct picks: 100
    3 correct picks: 150
    4 correct picks: 200
    5 correct picks: 250
    6 correct picks: 300
    7 correct picks: 360
    8 correct picks: 720
    9 correct picks: 1200
    10 correct picks: 2000


    Good luck you all...the event starts Jan.16th.2012
