    Predictions : Week of 102615
    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 Wednesday December 31,2014, you are eligible to participate.

    Two tournaments to pick this week. ATP has Paris, WTA has the oddly formatted Zhuhai.

    ATP:
    Paris :
    http://www.talkabouttennis.com/conte...15ATPPARIS.htm (Likely Thursday 10:30 local start; USA: 4:30AM Eastern, 1:30AM Pacific)

    WTA:
    Zhuhai :
    http://www.talkabouttennis.com/conte...5WTAZHUHAI.htm (Predictions due before start of play TUESDAY 3 PM local; USA: 2AM Eastern, MONDAY 11PM Pacific)

    P.S. - Also, pick the doubles winner as it will be part of the bonus category. In previous version of this event, they did not have a doubles portion

    After the deadline picks are viewable here: http://www.talkabouttennis.com/conte...15allpicks.htm

    FYI when I do Zhuhai I am told I have 1 pick remaining. I checked my confirmation email and it looks fine. Sofia had a similar problem last year although we didn't have to predict doubles then.

    It's an edited Sofia form from last year. Just ignore it. This was hastily thrown together and a bit awkward due to making the format unlike anything else.

    Does the winner of group 1 play the winner of group 2 in the semis? 3 v. 4? Or?

    Never mind. The menus answered my question.

    Yes. At least that's the way I set it up according to the description of the tournament in that thread.

    Please pick the winner of doubles as they have a champion unlike the previous version of this event.

    just did my Paree predictions - but of course missed the deadline for Zhuhai - guess I didn't know we were doing that one

    Re: Predictions : Week of 110215

    Here's how we did with WTA:

    16/16 had Venus in semis
    5/16 had Svitolina
    2/16 had Pliskova
    3/16 had Vinci

    JTContinental and Miles were the only two to get 3 semifinalists correct.

    16/16 of us have Venus making final - no one has a second finalist left. 9/16 have Venus winning final - including Miles.
