Oh, I have a question btw. Maybe it's explained somewhere but I can't find it (or simply, let's say I'm just not aware of all tennis rules lol)...

I just visited the Sony Ericsson Open website and I don't understand why we predict for some of the men's first round matches, and not for all men's. Is there a particular reason?

Because it then becomes very complicated in working out the scores. One person has to find out who did all the correct predictions, who got half right and who got 0 points, and then add them all up. Doing that for 64 matches would take a LONG time. We don;t have a computer system to do it for us, so it has to be done manually. Hence why only a small selection of between 4 and 6 matches a round is made. Smile

Damnit, what's wrong with Vliegen? Ever since the Davis Cup he's really been going through a bad patch of form. Frown
