Default 2012 NCAA Men's Tennis Tournament - Prediction Challenge

This is another good one from the Pro Results Board.

Before the FIRST MATCH of the tournament, pick who will win the Championship and who will be the Runner-Up. At the conclusion of the tournament, you'll get FIVE (5) points per correct finalist and TEN (10) points if you pick the champion so 15 points possible if you get the right winner and loser. (EX: Champion-Georgia , Runner-Up-USC)

For EVERY match, predict the winner and the final score. (EX: USC vs Fairfield - USC 4-0). Abbreviations are fine - NC State instead of North Carolina State is acceptable. If you pick the losing team you'll get 0 points. If you predict the correct winner but the wrong score, you'll get THREE (3) points. If you predict both the correct winner and the correct score, you’ll get FIVE (5) points. No winning team can have more than 4 points so this will negate those rare instances of a simultaneous finish on 2 courts resulting in the winning team finishing with 5 points (EX: 5-2).

Starting in the semifinals in addition to picking the match winner and score you'll also pick the results of the 6 singles matches and you can pick up .5 bonus points for picking the winner and .5 bonus points for picking the correct number of sets that the winner won in. In the finals it'll be 1 bonus point for each winner and another 1 bonus point for the correct number of sets (EX: #6 Singles - Pieters (UGA) in 2 sets)

You can edit a pick until a particular match starts, however, please always make a new post quoting the original pick if it is the day of the match. You CAN edit your post if it is at least 1 day before the match starts. You do NOT have to quote the entire post just the match you are changing.

Because of the overlap of the 1st and 2nd rounds you can pick your 2nd round winners and scores before the 1st round match is completed.

The winner is the one with the most points at the conclusion of the tournament. I'll post the results at the end of each day along with the daily schedule. Due to the large number of matches going on at the same time put all your predictions in one post and not in multiple posts.

Happy picking and may you pick well. If you have any questions about the rules let me know.
