    WELCOME TO 2013 ROLAND GARROS PREDICTION LEAGUE!

    Anyone at any time can play starting Sunday, May 26th!

    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 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.

    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.

    ***Meant to be sung to a distraught doubles partner...***

    Bet you've got your keyboard down and your monitor back.
    Bet you got no idea you're predicting way to fast.
    You're trying not to think about what went wrong
    Trying not to stop till you pick where your goin
    Trying to stay in contention so you turn the on (internet) radio
    and the song goes

    I can't predict without you, I can't predict without you, baby.
    I can't predict without you, I can't predict without you baby, oh baby.

    The wifi won't root for you tonight
    The wifi don't know you're alive
    The wifi don't care if your picks are all alone.
    But I do, I do.
    The wifi won't care about sets
    The wifi don't care how many upsets you get
    The wifi don't care if you're coming home... with the trophy
    But I do, I do.

    (I can't predict without you, I can't predict without you, baby.)

    As to all this drama, make your picks and stick with them...no edits after you post. Otherwise, just cancel the "competition" bcoz it's no fun listening to all this bellyaching, no?
