    WELCOME TO THE TALK TENNIS
    2011 BARCLAYS WORLD TOUR FINALS (11/20 - 11/27) POWER PLAY LEAGUE

    Welcome to our final event of the 2011 Tennis Year and the second Barclays World Tour Finals for the Power Play League!

    HOW TO PLAY:

    For each round of matches, we assign scoring points to each individual. For example, a match between Roger Federer (7,530) and Andy Roddick (2,120) would have the following scoring points:

    [4] R Federer (SUI) vs. [15] A Roddick (USA) - (5-19)

    The scoring points are calculated by a mathematical formula based on the players’ rankings. The objective of the game is to pick a mix of upsets and "sure bets" that will give you the highest score. All matches will be posted in the thread with scoring points while also being available in the League File. We hope you all join and we can make this bigger and better than our previous events!

    Format for Barclays World Tour Finals:

    • Only the top eight qualify for the WTF.
    • The goal is to pick six matches of a total of 15.
    • Two special caveats:
      • You have to pick one match out of each round of the Round Robin. The other three matches can be distributed as you wish.
      • You can pick one match out of the six that you're absolutely sure about to double up on. You get double the points for that match. So if the scoring points are (8-15), you pick the player that gets you 15 points and they win, you would get 30 points for that match.
    • The scoring is as follows: 500 points for the winner, 450, 400, 350, 300, 250, 200, 150 for the other seven. So you're guaranteed 150 points at least.
    • There's a bonus round where you pick the winner of one out of 16 possible semis match ups before any matches start. We will provide the possible scoring points for all sixteen. The reward if you choose the correct match and the correct winner will be 10 TIMES the scoring points of the match fixture. This reward will be added to your overall ranking.

    See a counselor
    If you need to ease your troubled mind
    And could you please sit over there
    I don't want you crying in my beer
    Do you want some cheese with all that whine?"

    Everyone remember in addition to the one semi pick, you have the ability to "double up" on one pick!

    • GasquetGOAT and sdont need to pick a match from Round Robin 1
    • dcdoorknob needs to confirm which player he's picking from match #2 (I'm assuming Murray unless otherwise stated)
    • sdont needs to pick a Semifinal and winner for the bonus - this needs to be posted before first ball struck!

    Everyone's semifinal bonus pick can be seen here

    Love the creativity and originality. All eight of you picked the same match/winner from RR1.

    Meanwhile, four of you picked SF6 for the bonus while the other four picked SF5!

    1. [1] N Djokovic (SRB) vs. [7] T Berdych (CZE) - (5-20)
    2. [3] A Murray (GBR) vs. [5] D Ferrer (ESP) - (8-13)

    Round Robin Two:

    7. [2] R Nadal (ESP) vs. [4] R Federer (SUI) - (8-12)
    8. [6] JW Tsonga (FRA) vs. [8] M Fish (USA) - (9-11)

    Round Robin Three:

    11. [2] R Nadal (ESP) vs. [6] JW Tsonga (FRA) - (6-16)
    12. [4] R Federer (SUI) vs. [8] M Fish (USA) - (7-15)

    The remaining round robin matches will be posted once tomorrow's matches conclude.

    Remember you must pick at least one match from each round robin and may use your remaining three picks at any time.

    You all also have one pick where you may double up the scoring points you receive if you pick the winner correctly.
