WELCOME TO THE 2012 BERCY MASTERS PREDICTION LEAGUE! Anyone at any time can play starting Monday, October 29th! HOW TO PLAY: Before the FIRST MATCH of the tournament, pick who will win the entire tourny and who will be the runner up. At the conclusion of the tournament, you'll get TWO POINTS per correct finalist or FIVE POINTS per player if he finishes in your predicted position. For EVERY match, predict the winner and the number of sets it will take for the winning player to win the match. (EX:  R Federer (SUI) vs  A Murray (GBR) - Federer in 3) If you predict the correct winner but in the wrong number of sets, you'll get THREE POINTS. If you predict both the correct winner and the correct number of sets, you’ll get FIVE POINTS. You can edit a pick until a particular match starts, however, please always make a new post quoting the original pick. DO NOT EDIT THE ORIGINAL POST.

There is no additional match picking or work involved. Your regular league scores are combined with your partner's to compete against another team. The doubles tournament format is similar to the FIFA World Cup. There are round robin rounds where you and your partner compete against doubles teams in your group. The top two or three teams from your group then move on to the knockout rounds. The exact format will depend on the number of doubles teams.
