Wimbledon contest 2019

I'll try one more time before giving up. One-person contests are not much fun. 

1. PIck quarterfinalists, semifinalists and champions for both ATP and WTA draws. You will receive 7.5 points for each correct quarterfinalist, 5 points for each correct semifinalist and 20 points for each correct champion. Federer has not been godly at grand slams recently, so you get the full 20 points if he wins. 

2. SUBSTITUTE PICK: Pick a player from each draw to replace one of your quarterfinalists. If this player makes the quarters. they will take the place of whomever you picked in that section of the draw. 

3. BIGGEST LOSER: pick the highest seed that will lose in the earliest round from each draw. The player must be a top-16 seed. You get 5 points if your see is the highest to lose and 2 points if your seed falls in the same round as the highest seed to lose. 


BONUS CATEGORY: Will Andy Murray win the title in doubles or mix doubles? 4 points for being right, yes or no. 

Unseeded players that make the quarterfinals are work an extra half-point for each seed they take out en route. 

Deadline for entry is whenever you enter.

Re: Wimbledon contest 2019

So sorry to have missed everything.  I have been crazy busy this year.

I could believe Halep winning Wimbledon, and I could even believe her beating Serena to do it.  I just wouldn't have believed the 6-2, 6-2 scoreline.

I am glad Barty lost before playing Serena; I remember her strategically vapid match against Serena at last year's Roland Garros where she kept hitting to Serena; you need to make Serena run if you want to beat her.

I fear that Federer is going to get badly beaten by Djokovic.  But after the second set of his match against Nadal, I thought he was going to get destroyed, so let's see how it turns out.
