2020 ATP SDL - LEAGUE FILE

Rules of the game:

1. It's a knock out-system: if the player you picked wins, you're through to the next round. If he loses, you're out.

2. You can pick a player only ONCE. Obviously it's important to make smart choices in order to get far. If you have no picks remaining, you're eliminated from the competition.

3. You can't pick a player from a match that has started already.

4. You cannot advance to the next round via a walkover since it is hard to know exactly when someone announced they were pulling out HOWEVER this rule does not apply once you reach the semifinals

5. As you cannot win a match by a walkover it is highly advised that you make a back-up pick to your main pick.
Your pick and back up cannot be from the same match. If so, your back up will be invalidated.
If your main pick is invalid (ie late, unreadable or unspecific) then your back up will become your pick.

6. If the player you picked retires during the match, you're out. If he retires before the match, your back-up pick will be used unless you change your pick before your back up match begins.

7. NEVER edit your pick. If you want to change your pick, please quote your old pick and choose a new player. Edited posts will not be taken into consideration.

We will be picking 5 pick's for this tournament. 1 pick per round.

POINTS FOR THIS TOURNAMENT -

1 correct pick: 50 points
2 correct picks: 110
3 correct picks: 180
4 correct picks: 300
5 correct picks: 500

SAVE PICKS FOR 2020

@Aussie Darcy has 1 save pick to use

1. You can use your save pick to advance if your player loses or retires during their match.

2. Save picks must be used before the last 16 of the Grand Slams or before the last 8 of any other tournament and must be used before the ATP Finals.

3. Please nominate a winning player to replace your losing player.

4. Your next pick must be correct to gain additional points.

5. Covid rule - any unused save picks are OK to use in any 2021 tournament that is not held in 2020. ie IW, SW19 etc

Good luck to everyone, the more the merrier.. It's all good fun.. :)

Sorry not trying to drag this out further but was that what the majority settled in? I thought everyone said when you post you just do a little symbol as in to say use this as the main pick in case of any issues ie late, withdrawl, etc. That way we still have control?

I accept and appreciate the decision and the struggles that were involved I just thought we were doing something different. If that is what the majority decided then all good!
