    WELCOME TO THE TALK TENNIS
    2013 BARCLAYS WORLD TOUR FINALS (11/04 - 11/11) POWER PLAY LEAGUE

    Welcome to our final event of the 2013 Tennis Year and the fourth 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 second year in a row, 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 greater amount of points at the end of the competition will be able to use one double-up during the 2014 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.

    Just the top 8. Next tourney available to all is Brisbane/Doha. You may qualify though based on your finish in Bercy.

    If my math is right, both Bez and I are going to miss out.

    Just thought if we have a 2004 situation where slam winners gain auto entry into the finals (Gaudio). But it's cool, this is not ATP.:)

    Please remember that you MUST pick a potential semifinal match and winner before the matches begin tomorrow!

    You also MUST make a pick from EVERY Round Robin.

    One day I will make it here. Nice to see Races make the cut..tough each time. Don't know how LCY , Locotus and Robin7 make it each and every time.

    Heart says Races will win
    Mind says Stringer based on his 2 title win streak.

    Good Luck to everyone.

    robin7 yet to confirm so stringertom/Rexking, please makes picks if you see this. If robin7 does not confirm by the first point is played, stringertom is the first alternate, Rexking second

    robin7 can still make his six picks as long as he picks one from each Round Robin but he cannot pick a SF and winner for the bonus.

    If stringertom or Rexking post first, they'll be in as the alternate.

    If I'm in due to Robin7's unexpected absence, am I allowed the potential SF pick even though the Wawa/Berdych match has concluded? I would agree not to pick either of those players.

    Unless I read it wrong, but whoever posted first will be the alternate, no?

    The Del Potro/Gasquet match has begun and our field of eight is set.

    Since Rexking posted first (and had previously confirmed participation as an alternate), he will take the final spot in 2013's WTF PPL event.

    Sorry to stringertom and robin7. The quick turnaround from Bercy to WTF really doesn't help keep things orderly.

    I'm not going to be available until around... 11PM/12AM Eastern time so I'll post the rankings and updated Scoring Points (which round robins which matches are in, etc.) once I get home.

    Sorry for the delays.
