Play starts on Monday 3rd October

2022 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. You must be logged in to make your pick, proxy picks are not allowed.

4. You cannot advance to the next round via a walkover, 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.
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. 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.

9. No changes rule: For the ATP Finals/bonus comp & the ATP Cup + the last 16 onwards of the Grand Slams + the last 8 onwards of any other tournament no changes are allowed to your pick or back up once it is entered unless either your pick or back up withdraws. You can add a back up later than your pick if you choose.

We will be picking 5 pick's for each tournament

SCORES FOR THESE TOURNAMENTS -

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

SAVE PICKS FOR 2022

@I Am Finnish @gn have 1 save pick remaining

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.. :)

Sure, that was clearly put, thanks. As Jeeves says to Wooster, "We endeavor to give satisfaction."
