    If you guys cannot find a doubles partner, then I will pair you guys up at random with someone. Also, for new players to the game, please read the newly created FAQ section by clicking here

    Thanks for the congrats seff! Thanks to Chelsea_Kiwi for creating the game. Don't worry, I'll keep your baby alive and run it very well for you =D

    I hope that I can bring the H2H to the next level.

    Current teams that have signed up (no particular order):
    1. NYKings and seffina
    2. kishnabe and Telepatic
    3. bezs and Boozyuzi
    4. LCY and lonux
    5. CocaCola and Tennis Sensation
    6. aphex and Blinkism
    7. rainingaces and FEDERERNADAL13

    Current players without doubles partners for now:
    kOaMaster, jamesblakefan#1, dcdoorknob, mtr1, Jeepers, sdont, JayChu, PSNELKE, Outbeyond, Fate Archer, Tennisallday, FeVer, statto, qindarka, stapler, Big_Dangerous, DragonBlaze, Chelsea_Kiwi, Manis Domini

    A lot of our regulars are currently missing, so I'm hoping that once it has been moved to the Pro Results section, a lot of them will sign in.

    Willing to partner up with Chelsea Kiwi, if he wants since it looks like neither of our partners are going to play.

    I can release some preliminary details about the H2H tournament. I'm hoping for 3 groups with 6 teams in each (I believe this can be done!)

    Group names (based off most GS titles won by Aussies):
    Rod Laver Group - Lead by First Seed
    Roy Emerson Group - Lead by Second Seed
    Ken Rosewall Group - Lead by Third Seed
    Seeds 4-9 will be determined randomly by draw
    **I thought of putting Emerson for the first seed since he won 12GS compared to Laver's 11GS. However, Laver did win the CYGS twice, so I put him first over Emerson.**

    I'll release the detailed schedule of the H2H event either Saturday night (around ~11PM EST) or Sunday Morning (~11AM EST).

    If you are wondering about seedings, I base it off the H2H ranking points. I combine yours and your partners rankings to create a grand total, and then I sort the teams from highest to lowest. Top 9 will get a seeding for Australian Open.

    Any questions/comments/complains/ideas, please direct them to me =)

    Depends on where in the world you are, but you'll miss the first day most likely. That's 32 matches, so you can't really recover from that. However, you can go ahead and pick the matches from the first round today (w/o the qualifiers) later today when the draw comes out. Most likely you can probably even pick the qualies matches if you pick their opponent. So check back in about 8 hours. This will be just for you and anyone that's going to miss Monday.

    --------
    Doubles, it's not too late at all. The doubles teams aren't set yet and we don't know how many will actually make their pick the first day. And it's never late to play singles.

    Yes, of course!

    Anyone at any time join the singles tourney. The only deadline is for making the winner and runner up picks - which is before the start of the first match on Monday (or Sunday evening for a lot of us).

    Tennis sensation, I'll post a list of matches in a few hours that you can pick the matches for.

    Everyone else - wait for the official list unless you're definitely not going to be around when I post it when the schedule of play comes out.

    The H2H event draw will not be released until Sunday at around 6PM EST. The reasoning for this is because I need to know the exact number of players that will be playing throughout the entire event, so I can plan the H2H schedule and draw accordingly. Sorry for the inconvenience

    Another Question for Seffina

    If I lock my picks in a few hours and then I am back before the start of Day 1 at the AO. So will I be able to make predictions from the official list?
