    This tournament's first pick will be for Monday, August 8th.

    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 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.

    Look like the fun is going to begin. Good Luck guys....Very Happy that Shanghai Masters starts when I have reading week. The season is wining down...the top 8 getting close to the goal.

    Would everyone like to play the WTF? While the top 8 also get to play an extra competition between themselves?

    I like the idea of everyone playing the WTF. The top 8 can have a multiplier or grand prize of some sort.

    It's a pun based on the movie with Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan.

    That too ( I was hoping someone understood, one of Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan best movies) and also...it means literally for all the North Americian viewers...as Night Time matches. If Shanghai is remotely close to how Beijing time zone.

    You're all wrong. I choose Robredo.

    If he loses, I'll change my signature to "I'm terrible at predicting and suck at the SDL".
