WELCOME TO THE TALK TENNIS 2012 BEIJING (北京)/TOKYO (東京) (10/1 - 10/7) POWER PLAY LEAGUE Welcome to the third combined PPL event of the 2012 Tennis Year and our third China Open & Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships 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 (9,035) and John Isner (2,710) would have the following scoring points:  R Federer (SUI) vs.  J Isner (USA) - ( 5-18 ) For the China Open & Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships, as it's a combined event of two 500 tournaments, the player picks the winner of 16 out of 62 matches based on the provided scoring points. For the combined tournament you MUST pick at least four matches from each tournament. 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 16 picks for the Beijing/Tokyo, you must make your first pick before the conclusion of the SECOND ROUND.
