Sosa is doing the men's... so, I'll do the women's.

The Game

Pretty simple game format, most of you have filled out brackets before. This is just a one time thing, you fill out, and submit your picks now and just watch the tournament and see how you are doing by the end. The Pick 'em game on the other hand is more up-to-date and exciting. Nonetheless this is a great game to see what each of us feels before the start of the tournament.

Picks are due before play begins on Monday

How To Play:
1.  Pick your 8 QFists true to the draw and rank them C,F,SF,SF,QF,QF,QF,QF

2. Format: to simplify my work, follow this format--last name only; no comments*, emoticons,
puncuation and do not indicate their rank--it's understood they are in order (see 1 above).
*place all comments at the bottom of your list. Follow this format.

Azarenka
Kvitova
Williams
Li Na
Wozniacki
Goerges
Kanepi
Bartoli


3. Regardless of a player's actual result, she's only credited with points according to your pick.
For example, assume you pick Roddick to reach the QF, but he actually advances to the F. In this example, Roddick will only be credited for reaching the QF, or 50 pts. Similarly, assume you pick Federer to win the title (C), but he only reaches 2R. Fed's score, then, is 7 pts (see scoring below).

Scoring
Grand Slam scoring system will be employed.
C - 200 pts
F - 140 max pts
SF - 90 max pts
QF - 50 max pts
4R - 30 max pts
3R - 15 max pts
2R - 7 max pts
Main Entry - 1 pt

Example (based on actual 2005 US Open results):         
………………..   Picks……….           Pts
Champion… Roddick…………...     1
Finalist……   Federer……………     140
SF………….   Hewitt……………..      90
SF………….   Grosjean………….      15
QF………….   Agassi…………….      50
QF………….   Ljubicic……………      15
QF………….   Nalbandian……….     50
QF………….   Hrbaty……………..     30
   Total Points……….      391

How To Win
The person with the most Total Points wins.

Tie-breaker
Pick 3 additional players and rank them 1-3. If your #1 advances further than his/her #1, you win; similarly for #2 and #3.

This is to avoid an outcome like 2007 USO, where the game ended in a tie for 1st because identical picks were submitted and we didn't have a tie-breaker in place.
