    EVERYONE can play in this tournament, so join in on the fun starting Sunday, November 20th!


    HOW TO PLAY:
    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 the player finishes in your predicted position.

    For EVERY match, predict the winner and the number of sets it will take for the winning player to win the match. (EX: [1] N Djokovic (SRB) vs [4] A Murray (GBR) - Djokovic in 3) 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 Overall Leaders (HTML)

    There are TWO COMPETITIONS.

    The regular prediction league is open to EVERYONE.

    It's worth 15 points (most after a slam)!​

    Way to make your thread look better than mine.

    I'm in. Let's win.

    EDIT: If Berdy Fizs isn't the outright winner of the poll, I want a re-count.

    The Prediction League H2H Event

    Congratulations to the teams that have qualified for the Group of 8 event.

    1. JayChu and kpxjam9 - CONFIRMED
    2. Li Ching Yuen and lonux - CONFIRMED
    3. mtr1 and Stefan83
    4. NYKings and seffina - CONFIRMED
    5. dcdoorknob and saloni - CONFIRMED
    6. kishnabe and Telepatic - CONFIRMED
    7. Big_Dangerous and Breaker - CONFIRMED
    8. sdont and woodrow1029 - CONFIRMED

    The number represents your seeded position in the event.

    Qualifiers must indicate that they will be playing the event by Saturday. In any event that a qualified team is unable to participate in the event, one of the following teams will be the replacement:
    • FEDERERNADAL13 and rainingaces
    • bezs and Boozyuzi - CONFIRMED

    Once the all teams have confirmed their participation, I will release the H2H draw and schedule.

    I am still debating whether or not to hold a smaller WTF H2H event that is worth a max. ~405-500 points. If there are enough teams to do this, I may just hold it. THIS IS NOT A GUARANTEE!

    Here are your groups (assuming everyone confirms participation)

    Gluten-Free Ballers:
    1. kishnabe - option A
    2. Li Ching Yuen - option B
    3. dcdoorknob
    4. aphex - option A

    27 Fluffy Bunnies:
    1. JayChu - option A
    2. lonux
    3. kpxjam9 - option B
    4. bezs

    Names are just place holders until y'all think one up... also, please don't keep 27 Fluffy Bunnies... it'll be hard to find a picture of 27 of them together in one place.

    You're free to pick all the matches for all three rounds and their corresponding EE task. Or you can wait until I post this for every round. Don't forget your winner/rup of the entire tourny.


    Round Robin One

    General League:

    1. [4] R Federer (SUI) vs [6] J Tsonga (FRA)
    2. [2] R Nadal (ESP) vs [8] M Fish (USA)
    3. [3] A Murray (GBR) vs [5] D Ferrer (ESP)
    4. [1] N Djokovic (SRB) vs [7] T Berdych (CZE)

    Elite Eight:

    Pick one match from above you think will be a 3 setter and one you think you will be a 2 setter. You can also choose “none” for either option. Cannot be the same match. (3 points only if you get both predictions correct.)

    Haha. I've been pitching that yours is the best one out there. Apparently, not very well. Don't hire me as a campaign manager.
