    Re: Predictions : Week of 102813

    I just checked my confirmation email for Sofia. According to that, I only picked one semifinalist and nothing beyond that.

    Re: Predictions : Week of 102813

    Meaning you had 3 wrong semifinalists? Or did you not see that email confirmations were messed for Sofia this week?

    Now I see the previous posts. I missed them entirely. Busy week. Actually, mine suggests I didn't make a single pick from one group at all. I'm sure all is fine. I hope so because I THINK I got all four SFists.

    Unfortunately the macro for publishing the Sofia picks isn't working so that's why they weren't posted this week. If anyone wants to know their picks I can look it up for them.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thanks for that Drop-shot - went with 4-0 for Italy and got it right because I wouldn't have thought about not playing all the matches before I saw this post.

    Are there still bonus points for correctly predicting Fed Cup scores? If so, what happens when they don't play the final match? In the case of a 4-0 final score, I kind of think everyone who predicted 4-0, 4-1, and 5-0 should qualify for the extra points.

    Yes, but you must have predicted 4-0 to get the bonus pt.

    A suggestion for next year - instead of trying to predict which dead rubber matches are to get played in Fed Cup and Davis Cup, why not award the bonus point for picking how many matches were won by the losing team as of the time when the winning team clinches the rubber? That way we are predicting only based on the results which actually played in good faith by both sides. The bonus point as it currently works just seems too random.

    That's why it's only worth 1 Besides it's no more random than some of the early round matches where we are picking between women or men not ranked in the top 100.

    Re: Predictions : Week of 102813

    I agree that it's too random, and I think it's much more so that a match between low ranked players. However, the contest is hard enough to manage that any complicated change seems implausible, so whatever is the most simple is fine.
