NEW RULE:

Name an alternate player, male or female, seeded below #10, for me to use as a substitute if your team has already been taken.

Here's the goop:

Enter your team in this thread following the official announcement of the Draw [this is for your benefit]!

Important: if you edit your team, please do not edit your original message; rather, post the revison as a seperate message in this thread.

Here are the rules:

1. The contest winner will be the poster whose registered team earns the highest number of points as of the conclusion of the tournament. He or she will be entitled to a modest prize of my choice from The Royal Canadian Mint. [no kidding]

2. Valid entries consist of a team of 6 players [3 men and 3 women] all of whom must be included in the official tournament draw.

3. 1 of the 6 players [either male or female] must be outside the top 10 seeds, as seeded in the tournament.

4. The order of your 6-named players is the most important factor in naming your team. It represents the seeding of your players for purposes of earning domination points.

5. You cannot name a team consisting of the same players in the same order as a team already entered. However, you can enter a team consisting of the same players as another team, provided those players are in a different order.

6. 1 Entry per Person. Contest limited to first 100 entries

7. You may change the composition of your team ONCE ONLY up to the start of play, after which there can be no further changes. Any changes you make must not result in duplicating someone else's entry.

8. Assign a name to your team. If you fail to do so, your team will be named after your posting handle [e.g. Team kirkus]. The team names will be evaluated by an independent panel of drunken idiots, I mean friends of mine, and their rating of the best team names will be announced following the tournament ... God only knows when.

Note -

In general, I'll accept an entry from anyone who has played before. It will be difficult to accommodate more than 100 entries, so get them in early.

As Contest Administrator, I will abstain from participating. I will arbitrate any disputes, grievances, questions of eligibility, etc.

[B]SCORING

I won't yawn you with all the details of the scoring here. Suffice to say that you will earn the following types of points:

1. Domination Points:

These are based on how soundly your players beat their opponents. A key factor in calculating these points is how high you have seeded them on your team. For example, if you seed Jankovic 2nd on your team and she beats Wozniak 6-0 6-0 [heaven forbid!], you will get 60 points; however, if you seeded Janko 5th on your team, you will only get 24 points. On the other hand, if your player loses, you will lose the corresponding number of points. Also, no winning player will be penalized for losing more games than their opponent. In such cases the default is 0 points

2. Progression Points

You get additional points whenever your players advance to the next round [10 for round 1, 20 for round 2, 30 for round 3, 50 for round 4, etc.]
3. Quality Points

You get further points when your player defeats an opponent who is seeded in the tournament. The number of points is based on how highly the opponent is seeded. For example, if you pick Federer and he defeats the 20th seed, you get 13 points [33 - 20].

Good luck to all contestants

While retirements count in official H2H's, they don't mean much to me, Moose.

Hey owen ... your team name is very close to craig's. I'm concerned that my panel of drunken idiots will have difficulty distinguishng between the two when they rate the team names. They might imagine they are seeing double and that their limit has dropped, creating anxiety amongst the bartending staff.

Just thought I would mention that.
