Q. Why are 4 needed? Smile

No technical reason, just don't want things to be too time consuming for the organisers.

Same idea for scoring?

1 point for correct winner
3 point for correct number of sets

Any other ideas we could introduce to freshen up the format? A banker prediction which doubles your points?

I was thinking we should consider simplying the rules to allow for you organisers an easier time with calculations? Not sure if it's possible though, don't know much about RTR myself.

It's fine to do it here, would like opportunity for everyone to give their ideas. Smile

My proposal which is more than welcome to amendment is.

5 matches put up for prediction (attempts will be made to make them evenly matched) every day, with the prediction deadline being thirty minutes before the start of play.

Scoring :

1 point for the correctly predicted result (Bogdanovic defeats Nadal)
3 points for the correctly predicted result and the correct number of sets. (i.e - Bogdanovic defeats Nadal in x sets)

Banker - each day, players will assign their banker to one of their predictions. Ideally, this is the prediction that they are the most sure of. The banker will allow for double points on that prediction.

So, if Mark, for example, predicts Bogdanovic to beat Nadal in four sets, and amazingly, that result did happen, he would receive six points, rather than the usual three.

Nice, like the banker idea.

In regards to organising... shall we do it based on a timetable with your preferred days?

Perhaps, I visit the site every day if I'm at a computer, and this takes less effort than writing news articles so not fussed about rotas, but if Hazel and Allan want it, then that would make sense.
