2021 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, 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 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.

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 5 pick's for each of this tournaments. 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

@spystud Yes, well, Sakkari last lost to Mladenovic at the AO and Sherif is a big ball hitter. Sakkari should win that but would like to see a match from her...
