    We usually donít. Think it is officially an exhibition since no rankings points are given out.

    Round robins are a pain for predictions, to boot.

    Single elimination brackets are so much easier.

    YECs are kinda a mess, which is why the old form just gets recycled.

    4-game sets; no-ad scoring; first to 4 games?

    I'm very unclear on how Fed Cup points factor into final Prediction results and medals, but if they have any kind of lasting impact, I think maybe they should get a separate thread. The title of this thread will likely make some miss the entry deadline for Fed Cup.

    Does bonus get its own medals? Because if so, then my suggestion definitely stands. I'd think based on the title, most would think it is fine to makes selections over the weekend and that's too late for Fed Cup.

    Think bonus usually just gets one medal. And the score adds to the overall total for everything too of course (three medals.)
