    Scoreboard

    This year Rotterdam has a wicked draw, so I think we should play it...

    The Rules

    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 quarterfinals, you have to pick one player per day. In the 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.

    5. If the player you picked retires during the match, you're out. In case of a walk-over, you're allowed to change your pick.

    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 pick: 35
    2 correct picks: 70
    3 correct picks: 105
    4 correct picks: 140
    5 correct picks: 180
    6 correct picks: 300
    Winner: 500

    So who's on? (There's still a week left...)

    In.

    Also, does anyone have plans to go find the most recently updated rankings and then bring them up to current? If not, I might be able to find time sometime this week, but I don't want to make promises. I don't think I have access to edit any of those google docs so I'd probably have to make a new one. If someone else was planning on doing this let me know and I'll just let you have at it.

    Do you want to have rolling rankings? I thought we would be doing it Race-style. It's not like rankings are important for anything but WTF.

    Yea you're right. I was just assuming rolling rankings because that's what the other games do, but I'm fine with just race rankings for this.

    Holmes: Oh go on then, let's see if we can manage to remember to hit 'reply' this time after choosing a player.

    Holmes: No, not even ONE LOL! :twisted: I'd have a thousand points by now in this SDL if I'd not been distracted by Watson and subsequently not hit the reply button. Grrr... Just as well I don't play any lotteries.

    Watson: :oops:

    I will be utterly gobsmacked if Murray plays this. I'll also be pretty surprised if Novak turns up.


    Anything other than a Sod win sees Murray back at number 4.

    EDIT. It's not very often I'm right, but it seems I'm wrong again - Neil Harman of The Times reckons Murray is slated to play single and dubs with his brother - Murray is unlikely to pull out and let his brother down.

    Can't see Djokovic playing, he's probably still half cut.

    Predictable, i just bought tickets to the final yesterday :(

    Murray will probably show up, but i don't think he'll be giving 100%. Knowing my luck we'll get a lame final between 2 dutch qualifiers.

    Yeah, i'm Dutch, but if i want to see a final between 2 Dutch qualifiers i can just go any national competition meet and see them play.

    I'm porting last year's results to this year's spreadsheet... if you see weird stuff in the rankings, that's me.

    ...Done. OK, now the results spreadsheet has both a "Race" and a "Ranking" tab.
