    WELCOME TO THE TALK TENNIS
    2012 BARCLAYS WORLD TOUR FINALS (11/05 - 11/12) POWER PLAY LEAGUE

    Welcome to our final event of the 2012 Tennis Year and the third 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.
    • Three 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.
      • For the first time this year, there will be a group competition. It requires no extra work from the participants. We will match-up the 1, 3, 5, and 7 seeds vs. the 2, 4, 6, and 8 seeds and the team with the higher amount of points at the end of the competition will be able to use one double-up during the 2013 PPL year.
    • 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.

    Do we all agree Basel/Valencia -- Paris -- WTF is a little ridiculous? Too much in a short span.

    seff, or anyone else that knows, am I wrong in assuming that the Group B RR 1 matches will be 2 seed vs. 8 seed and 4 seed vs. 6 seed?

    You are not wrong. The highest will play lowest and the two middle will play each other. Then the two winners and two losers of those matches play each other.

    In, I think, unless Janowicz wins another match to give everyone 30+ pts.

    If you want to gander at scoring points for RR1 matches, you may in the league file. I won't post them until we know how many points Ferrer will end up with after Bercy.

    Alright, the top eight are now official. Please see the original post to see if you've qualified. Six of the top eight have confirmed participation and both alternates. If dcdoorknob and joeri888 don't confirm by tomorrow, the alternates play.

    After talking to my advisers, there will be a group competition. Very simple the 1, 3, 5, and 7 seeds vs. 2, 4, 6, and 8 seeds. The team with the most points at the end of the tournament gets one double pick during the 2013 PPL year. You have to choose to double before the match begins next year (we'll address this at the end). Enjoy.
