WELCOME TO THE TALK TENNIS 2012 AUSTRALIAN OPEN POWER PLAY LEAGUE Welcome to the first Grand Slam of the 2012 Tennis Year and our second Australian Open Power Play League tournament. HOW TO PLAY: For each round of matches, we assign scoring points to each individual. For example, a match between Roger Federer (8,170) and Andy Roddick (1,940) would have the following scoring points:  R Federer (SUI) vs.  A Roddick (USA) - (5-21) For Australian Open, as it's a Grand Slam, the player picks the winner of 32 out of 127 matches based on the provided scoring points. 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! REMINDER: You can join at any time (even if you want to pick just the final) but to make all 32 picks for the Australian, you must make your first pick before the conclusion of the SECOND ROUND.
