    Happy New Year and Welcome to the Talk Tennis 2013 Prediction League Season!

    Anyone at any time can play starting Monday, January 14th!

    HOW TO PLAY:

    1. Before the FIRST MATCH of the tournament, pick who will win the entire tourny and who will be the runner up. At the conclusion of the tournament, you'll get TWO POINTS per correct finalist or FIVE POINTS per player if he finishes in your predicted position.

    2. For EVERY match, predict the winner and the number of sets it will take for the winning player to win the match. (EX: [2] R Federer (SUI) vs [3] A Murray (GBR) - Federer in 4) If you predict the correct winner but in the wrong number of sets, you'll get THREE POINTS. If you predict both the correct winner and the correct number of sets, you’ll get FIVE POINTS.

    You can edit a pick until a particular match starts, however, please always make a new post quoting the original pick. DO NOT EDIT THE ORIGINAL POST.

    Additional Rules and Instructions: League FILE & FAQ (HTML) and Current Top Ten, Defending Champions, and Leaders (HTML) and Overall Rankings, Top Ten, Defending Champions (HTML)

    PREDICTION LEAGUE DOUBLES HEAD TO HEAD CONTEST:

    In addition to the regular tournament, each participant can pair up with another one and participate in a doubles tournament. There is no additional match picking or work involved. Your regular league scores are combined with your partner's to compete against another team.

    The doubles tournament format is similar to the FIFA World Cup. There are round robin rounds where you and your partner compete against doubles teams in your group. The top two or three teams from your group then move on to the knockout rounds. The exact format will depend on the number of doubles teams.

    I'm in for sure! And for doubles, I'd love a full year partner. I played with mtr1 last year, and if they want to be my partner again then I'd be all for that :)

    I would love that, but doesn't seem like it so far. Usually by this time a few new folks have signed up. Alas.

    I've already posted this on the SDL threads, so I'll post it here as well. If you believe you're going to have issues keeping up with the time zone difference, I've made it simpler for you:

    First round begin on January 14, 2013 at 11:00AM Australian EDT.

    If you are located in:

    North America EST, then matches begin at 7:00PM on Sunday, January 13

    North America PST, then matches begin at 4:00PM on Sunday, January 13

    North America CST, then matches begin at 6:00PM on Sunday, January 13

    Europe CET, then matches begin at 1:00AM on Monday, January 14

    Europe EET, then matches begin at 2:00AM on Monday, January 14

    Europe GMT, then matches begin at 12:00AM on Monday, January 14

    Asia WIB, then matches begin at 7:00AM on Monday, January 14

    Asia CST, then matches begin at 8:00AM on Monday, January 14

    Asia IST, then matches begin at 5:30AM on Monday, January 14

    Asia JST and KST, then matches begin at 9:00AM on Monday, January 14

    Asia AST, then matches begin at 3:00AM on Monday, January 14

    Wherever you are located, that is the time where your picks should be in!

    Welcome to the game!

    --
    Just FYI, the top ten is slightly wrong. You can look at the correct one in the league file. The order's the same, the points are different.

    I need to make Monday-Tuesday picks early. Like tomorrow before I leave work, if possible. I am going to be out of contact for most of the weekend.

    Seffina, if possible, can you send me an e-mail, because I lost your address to send early picks too. Or, if there's another way to do it.

    Thanks!
