Australian Open 2005 Game

(1/8) > >>

Ok, the seeds have been released for the AO 2005.  This will be the thread we will play the game in.  You will be allowed to edit your messages in this thread until the first match of the AO starts and then I will lock it down.  The results will be posted after the slam.


You must determine which round each of the top 16 seeds will lose in.  (Or win if you deem someone the winner of the tournament)  If you guess right you will win 1 point.  The person with the most points wins.

I have considered awarding 2 points for guessing right and 1 point for guessing wrong and only being 1 round off.  Does that sound like more fun?  If you have any additional suggestions I am definitely open to them!

I think I'll wait until tomorrow when I can see who's in Federer's part of the draw.

Scott, did you realise you picked 3 losing semi-finalists and no runner-up?  :))

By the way, there is a very similar game online run by Ed Toombs at

sweet, 3 semi losers eh?  lol, I guess I will not be winning at least one point.  :)

I will be adjusting this as we go until the AO starts I am sure.  Heck, who even knows if Agassi is playign now.  :(

This sounds fun.  I will do my picking soon.  I have a feeling, though, a withdrawal or two might occur before the Open starts.
