AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2013 PREDICTION LEAGUE (1st in Series, Season 5)

Happy New Year and Welcome to the Talk Tennis 2013 Prediction League Season!

Anyone at any time can play starting Monday, January 14th!

1. Before the FIRST MATCH of the tournament, pick who will win the entire tourny and who will be the runner up. At the conclusion of the tournament, you'll get TWO POINTS per correct finalist or FIVE POINTS per player if he finishes in your predicted position.

2. For EVERY match, predict the winner and the number of sets it will take for the winning player to win the match. (EX: [2] R Federer (SUI) vs [3] A Murray (GBR) - Federer in 4) If you predict the correct winner but in the wrong number of sets, you'll get THREE POINTS. If you predict both the correct winner and the correct number of sets, you’ll get FIVE POINTS.

You can edit a pick until a particular match starts, however, please always make a new post quoting the original pick. DO NOT EDIT THE ORIGINAL POST.

In addition to the regular tournament, each participant can pair up with another one and participate in a doubles tournament. There is no additional match picking or work involved. Your regular league scores are combined with your partner's to compete against another team.

The doubles tournament format is similar to the FIFA World Cup. There are round robin rounds where you and your partner compete against doubles teams in your group. The top two or three teams from your group then move on to the knockout rounds. The exact format will depend on the number of doubles teams.

seffina - Overlord, Awesome | JayChu - Team Guy, Diligent | NYKings, TopDawg, dcdoorknob - Helpers, Very Helpful

Sidenote: Disruptive/aggressive/obnoxious posting from anyone will result in a warning. If it continues, the player will be disqualified from the game for the remainder of the tournament.

dcdoorknob 01-04-2013 03:53 PM

Yeah, yeah
When I post on by, girls be looking at my picks like damn they fly
I pick to the beat, predicting who will win and who will taste defeat, yeah
This is how I roll, pickin' winners and sets, upsets outta control,
Will I pick Gael witht he big afro
Or go for Radek, with the sexy nose?

Oh talk tennis look at those picks
Oh talk tennis look at those picks
Oh talk tennis look at those picks
Ah... I do research

When I open up the thread, this is what I see
Everybody stops and they staring at 'me' (my avatar)
I got passion in my predictions and I ain't afraid to show it, show it, show it, show it

My picks are sexy and I know it.

They're sexy and I know it.
