    We still need to confirm the participation of Stefan83 for the H2H event. If he does not confirm it by Saturday, then the final spot will go to FEDERERNADAL13 and rainingaces. If they do not confirm it, then it will go to bezs and Boozyuzi.

    H2H YEAR-END #1 RACE​


    The race to the year-end #1 rankings now comes down to the final event. Only three players are in the race to end the year as H2H #1: kpxjam9, Li Ching Yuen and myself.

    Presented below is the round by round point distribution.

    [​IMG]

    For kpxjam9 and myself to clinch the year-end #1 ranking, we need to reach the semi-finals.

    For Li Ching Yuen to clinch the year-end #1 ranking, he needs to win the title AND kpxjam9 and myself cannot reach the semi-finals.

    Good luck to everyone!

    I will post the Group of Eight draw and schedule on Sunday 12:00AM EST.

    Nope, you're done! Until RR2 that is.

    ---
    Remember that who plays who in RR2 depends on who wins in RR1. In each group, the two winners from RR1 will play in RR2 and the two losers from RR1 play in RR2... which is why I'm not posting Elite Eight RR2 and RR3 questions.

    But for the general league, I'll post up the remaining matches later today.

    Unfortunately no. rainingaces have to be confirmed for the event as well.

    If I were to allow you do that, then I could have told mtr1 that he could do the same thing for him and Stefan83 since they both officially qualified for the event.

    bezs & Boozyuzi, please confirm for the event should both Stefan83 and rainingaces do not confirm.

    Thanks!

    Elite 8 RR1 prediction:
    2 setter: Murray vs Ferrer
    3 setter: Djokovic vs Berdych

    Also, filled out the option B form. Fwiw, I know the bonus is supposed to be a bit of a long shot, but I think both are a actually a longer shot than most people realize.

    Yeah, I know, but I don't know if it should be made easier. It's certainly more difficult compared to the PPL bonus. I think the PPL bonus should be the final rather than the semi-final, but someone just didn't want to calculate all the scoring points possibilities.

    Bonu Option B is more challenging IMO as you've to factor in how many matches a player might play in addition to the match ups for those matches. And those stats aren't per match average or what not, but cumulative. And for questions like the UEs one, you've to factor in how they're counting those stats.

    Here are the stats from last year, btw, in case anyone wants to see how things played out:

    https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub...KbGN5T3c&hl=en&single=true&gid=25&output=html

    Bonus Option B Answers for 2010:
    1. Andy Murray served the most aces.
    2. Novak Djokovic had the least amount of unforced errors.
    3. David Ferrer got broken the most.
    4. Roger Federer got broken the least.
    5. Andy Roddick and David Ferrer didn't win a single match.


    ---
    Also, as you are bringing that up - if one of you is watching a match and it's at the end, please, please, please screenshot the end stats or note down the winners/UEs stats in this thread. The rest of the stats I can find on the ATP site, but they exclude the winner/ue numbers usually.

    I'm going to be much busier this year than last year and might be away from the laptop a lot of the time. Thank you in advance.

    Heh, I may elaborate more on how small a chance I think there is for each option, but I'll wait until after matches start.

    That's not at all the reasoning. That option was never brought to me. It's always been SF. If that's what people wanted, I would have done them.
