    EVERYONE can play in this tournament, so join in on the fun starting MONDAY, November 5th!

    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 he 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: [2] R Federer (SUI) vs [3] A Murray (GBR) - Federer 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.

    There are TWO COMPETITIONS.

    The regular prediction league is open to EVERYONE.

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

    Congratulations to the TPL H2H Final Eight Teams:

    1. JayChu & kpxjam9 - CONFIRMED
    2. dcdoorknob & saloni - CONFIRMED
    3. seffina and NYKings - CONFIRMED
    4. bezs & Boozyuzi - CONFIRMED

    6. boredone3456 & jamesblakefan#1 - CONFIRMED
    7. romeo8880 & TopDawg - CONFIRMED
    8. stringertom & Tammo - CONFIRMED

    The seeding for the event will be determined based on the outcome of the Paris Masters H2H finals.

    Should any of the above teams not confirm for the event, one of two alternates will take their place:

    JadeC & kaku
    Li Ching Yuen & lonux - I highly doubt they will be playing. If not then it will be sdont & woodrow1029 then it will be GhostDog & Justin Side, then mtr1 & PSNELKE and then Big_Dangerous & Breaker

    Event Information:

    Each team will be will be split into two groups: Novak Djokovic Group and Roger Federer Group (based on the two players leading the ATP Race). The groups are determined by which of their respective ATP player ends up. For now JayChu & kpxjam9 is represented by Novak Djokovic and dcdoorknob & saloni is represented by Roger Federer.

    There are 15 matches throughout the entire tournament and each team will play each other once in their respective pool. The schedule is as follows:

    RR1 - Matches 1 - 3
    RR2 - Matches 4 - 6
    RR3 - Matches 7 - 9
    SF- Matches 10 - 12
    Championship Finals and 3rd Place - Matches 13 - 15 + W/RU picks

    This year, we will be hold consolation rounds for the teams that do not advance to the semi-finals. For teams that are playing in the consolation rounds, you will be playing for the 5th to 8th spots.

    TEAMS MUST CONFIRM FOR THE EVENT BY SUNDAY AT 9PM EST!

    You're free to pick all the matches for all three rounds 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. [3] A Murray (GBR) vs [5] T Berdych (CZE)
    2. [1] N Djokovic (SRB) vs [7] JW Tsonga (FRA)
    3. [4] D Ferrer (ESP) vs [6] JM Del Potro (ARG)
    4. [2] R Federer (SUI) vs [8] J Tipsarevic (SRB)

    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. (1.5 points per correct prediction.)

    As always, if you're watching a match, please take a screenshot at the end when they show stats. Or at least take note of the winners and unforced errors as those stats are not included in the official ATP stats.

    You get everything right, you get 5 points to your overall rankings. One thing wrong, you get nothing. Same for Bonus Option 2, all five answers have to be right to get points. All or nothing.

    so I just did the option 2 thing and then looked at the results, and noticed that it said I was the 2nd person who had signed in as dcdoorknob. Not sure what's up with that. It's not just counting mine twice either since there is one question where the guy I picked has only been picked once. It also says kpxjam has had 2 entries claim that they are him.
