    Predictions : World Tour Finals at London

    This contest is temporarily closed to new participants. If you participated in the contest since January 1,2010 or you signed up on or before Sunday December 24,2011, you are eligible to participate.

    We have one event to predict this week. The ATP is playing their last event of the season in London.


    London : http://www.talkabouttennis.com/conte...2ATPLONDON.htmWill be available once prediction scores week of 102912 are done

    Here's how the World Tour Finals works. We pick all fifteen singles matches. Also, we predict the doubles winners only. The players compete against each player in their group. The two players with the best record in each group are the semifinalists (so it helps to be familiar with tiebreak scenarios). But remember, you must specify the four semifinalists based on your predicted round robin results.

    All match predictions--all the way up to the final--must be made before the scheduled start of play Monday, November 5 at noon local(7 AM USA EST - 4 AM USA PST).

    The singles scores will count toward your ATP scores. Correct doubles predictions will count toward your Bonus scores.

    Point structure for London :

    2 points for each correct RR match
    4 points for each correct semifinalist
    6 points for each correct finalist
    8 points for the winners (singles and doubles)

    We also want to remind our contestants who qualified for the Race to London contest that their singles predictions will decide the medals for that contest. Qualifiers and alternates are listed below:

    1. Evil_Juju
    2. Martini4me
    3. Omegadoom
    4. Charlie02123
    5. FEBravo
    6. Miles
    7. 3mlm
    8. Drop-shot

    Alternates
    1. PeterSkan
    2. Garp6
    3. Patrick

    Garp6 and Patrick are tied for the last alternate spot

    PICKS:

    After the deadlines pass, you will be able to find everyone's picks at:

    It is now safe to officially pick for London. You can drink heavier after you post your picks.

    Is it glitching like crazy for anyone? I've now tried it three times and every time the email confirmation says all the RR picks are blank and the SF are different.

    Tried a fourth time. Same exact glitchy incorrect scores.

    Blank round robin...wrong semifinalists, no finalists, and wrong winner when I submit.
    A Canadian Slam winner? Inconceivable!

    I'm getting the same.
    Meet again we do, old foe...

    I have no idea what could be going wrong, but being quite late where Patrick lives it might not be fixed before the deadline.

    If you should continue to get erroneous mail confirmations PM your picks to Patrick and I and we'll see if we can fill in the draws later on. Still, please wait until the last moment so as to not flood the inbox with unnecessary PMs since it might get fixed later on.

    thanks!

    I never check my confirmation email, but this is kind of fun.

    Apparently mine says someone is really going to rock this tournament because he is playing one semi-final against himself and and then yet another semi-final. Thankfully, since he gets 3 bites at the apple he does walk away the victor.
    Nobody will recognize me as an international assassin in this clever disguise.

    Well I am going to bed now - MAYBE I'll be up before 4AM here on the West Coast.

    Please continue to make your picks like normal as I do see all picks. Problem at the moment is on the e-mail confirmation at first glance. Will keep an eye on this all week.
