WELCOME TO THE TALK TENNIS 2014 UNITED STATES OPEN ( 08/25 - 09/08 ) POWER PLAY LEAGUE Welcome to the fourth and final Grand Slam of the 2014 tennis year, the United States Open. HOW TO PLAY: For each round of matches, we assign scoring points to each individual. For example, a match between Novak Djokovic (12,920) and David Ferrer (6,505) would have the following scoring points:  N Djokovic (SRB) vs.  D Ferrer (ESP) - (7-14) For the US Open, as it's a slam, the player picks the winner of 32 out of 127 matches based on the provided scoring points. The scoring points are calculated by a mathematical formula based on the players’ rankings. The objective of the game is to pick a mix of upsets and "sure bets" that will give you the highest score. All matches will be posted in the thread with scoring points and will also be available in the league file. We hope you all join and we can make this bigger and better than our previous events! REMINDER: You can join at any time (even if you want to pick just the final) but to make all 16 picks for US Open, you must make your first pick before the conclusion of the SECOND ROUND. US Open Points Scale: Overall Rankings: The Top Ten: At any point during the 2014 PPL season, the following participants can choose to double up on a pick. The double up needs to be announced before the match begins. dcdoorknob League File (HTML Link) 2014 Power Play League Tournaments (HTML Link) 2013 Power Play League Tournaments (HTML Link) 2012 Power Play League Tournaments (HTML Link) 2011 Power Play League Tournaments (HTML Link) 2010 Power Play League Tournaments (HTML Link) Power Play League Overall Rankings (HTML Link) Please post in this thread if you'll be playing and we will add your name to the file.
