US Open 2011 (Matchday 1)

Quote

Hey folks, we're reviving this for the meantime. No prizes, just the distinction of being correct and having the best score. Very Happy

The format/rules are below
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. Each player must make predictions in this format (winner and number of sets, ie - Nadal in four sets)

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.


Matches for prediction

M1 - Igor Andreev v David Ferrer [5]

M2 - Fernando Verdasco [19] v Jarkko Nieminen

M3 - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga [11] v Yen-Hsun Lu

M4 - Andrey Golubev v Rafael Nadal [2]

M5 - Ernests Gulbis v Mikhail Youzhny [16]



NB - When making predictions, players must embolden or clearly leave the word 'Banker' beside their assigned predictions. Any ambiguity will mean that the player will lose their banker bonus for that matchday.

Predictions must be made by 3:30PM (BST) on Tuesday.
