2020 WTA SDL sheet - 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 she 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, back up will be invalidated.

6. If the player you picked retires during the match, you're out. If she 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.

SCORES FOR THIS TOURNAMENT -

We may as well start back with Palermo as nobody know how the remainder of the season will be.

WTA have cancelled the Asian swing inc WTA finals so we will play most of the remaining tournaments inc some smaller ones that we don't usually play.

Similar to the WTA Tour we will retain the Rankings from 2019 for all tournaments from March through to the end of the year.

Post lockdown scheduled tournaments (ie French Open 2020) will be "better of 2019 & 2020". Improve your 2019 score and your total increases.

New tournaments (Palermo etc) will be added to the Rankings

Doubles tournaments from 2019 will be removed from the Rankings when the relevant week comes round.


hope that's ok..

I guess I can still join even though I missed the first day...?! (Come on guys, even though I see Vekic as really "basic", she would have been a safe bet here! ;) )

This sounds like a lot of fun, and I'd like to participate in the upcoming winner picks - it's too late to get into this one, I think? How do you enter? Just post your picks as per the rules you set out?
