The main draw will be out Friday, June 23; play begins Monday, June 26. Be sure to get your picks in on time. London is 5 hours ahead of us (ET).[/color]

How To Play[/u]
1. Pick your 8 QFists true to the draw and rank them C,F,SF,SF,QF,QF,QF,QF
2. Regardless of a player's result, he's only credited according to your pick for that player.
For example, assume you pick Agassi to reach the QF but he advances to the F. In this
example, Agassi will only be credited for reaching the QF (see scoring below).

Scoring[/u]
Grand Slam scoring system will be employed.
C - 200 pts
F - 140 pts
SF - 90 pts
QF - 50 pts
4R - 30 pts
3R - 15 pts
2R - 7 pts
Main Entry - 1 pts
Referring to the example above, Agassi receives 50 pts.               

Example (based on 2005 US Open results):               
……………..   Picks……….   wins…   loss….   pct……….   Pts
C………..….   Roddick……   0…….   1…….   …………..   1
F……..…….   Federer…….   6…….   1…….   …………..   140
SF………….   Hewitt………   5…….   1…….   …………..   90
SF………….   Grosjean…..   2…….   1…….   …………..   15
QF………….   Agassi……..   4…….   1…….   …………..   50
QF………….   Ljubicic…….   2…….   1…….   …………..   15
QF………….   Nalbandian…   4…….   1…….   …………..   50
QF………….   Hrbaty……..   3…….   1…….   …………..   30
Totals………   ……………..   26……   8…….   0.765…….   391
Notice, Federer is limited to 140 pts; similarly, Agassi is limitted to 50 pts               
So, had Federer been picked to win, he would have received 200 pts (7-0);               
had Agassi been picked to reach the F, he would have received 140 pts (6-1)               

How To Win[/u]
The person with the most Total Points wins.

Tie-breakers[/u]
1. Champion pick
2. most picks advancing to Finals
3. most picks advancing to Semifinals
4. most picks advancing to Quarterfinals
