2021 ATP 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 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.

8. New rule for 2021: For late picks, we will use whichever timestamp Flashscore.com shows for the match. Your post must be made before the time Flashscore gives. Keep in mind, Flashscore might round the start time (ie if a match begins at 12:07, Flashscore might show 12:05 or 12:10.). Ties will not be counted.

We will be picking 6 pick's for this tournament, 1 pick per round

SCORES FOR THIS TOURNAMENT -

1 correct pick: 50 points
2 correct picks: 120
3 correct picks: 220
4 correct picks: 360

SAVE PICKS FOR 2021

@Aussie Darcy has 2 save picks

@Yugram has 1 save pick

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 - your "burn" pick. If any future picks were made they will be void. You must indicate that you intend to use your "burn" and make a new pick for the next round from players that are available to you at that point.

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

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

He will confirm once he’s able to get logged in.
Why is he unable to log in? If it is a Ban we will have to say no as we have toed that line in the past. However if its a technical issue with the forum I'd be more open to discussion because well, glitches happen.

@Seth @mpournaras the league admins have discussed this and agreed unanimously not to allow proxy votes.

We have tightened up a few rules over the last couple of years to hopefully make it run better and feel it's the fairist way. I'll add a rule for the next tournament so that's it's clarified going forward.

@Seth thanks for taking the time to pass on his message, hopefully @mpournaras can log in before round 1 is over
