U.S. Open contest 2019

Here goes: 

1. Pick quarterfinalists, semifinalists and champions for both ATP and WTA draws. You will receive 7.5 poins for each correct quarterfinalist, 5 points for each correct semifinalist and 20 points for each correct champion. Djokovic has been so dominant on hard courts lately and in slams in general that you will get only 10 points for him. Eveyone else gets you 20 points. 

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 seed is the highest to lost and 2 points if your seed falls in the same round as the highest seed to lose. 


BONUS CATEGORY: AWFUL AMERICAN MEN. Will any U.S. man reach the fourth round? No Yanks got that far in either Montreal or Cincinnati. 4 points for being right if you say yes, 3 points for being right if you say no. 

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

Deadline for entry is any time before the end of the first round.

The women's draw broke perfectly for what I think might happen, but since it's impossible to predict the women right now, it probably won't help me.

Federer (Goffin) over Nishikori 
Thiem over Bautista Agut
Nadal over Schwartzman


Djokovic over Federer
Nadal over Thiem


Djokovic over Nadal 6-3, 7-6, 6-3

BL: Tsitsipas




Osaka over Kanepi
Halep (Andreescu) over Kvitova
Kenin over Pliskova
Barty over Serena


Halep over Osaka

Re: U.S. Open contest 2019

If I had not picked Andreescu as a substitute for Halep (although I really thought Andreescu would win the tournament, I have a personal rule against making the higher-seeded player the substitute), it would have been decided by 1 point. Your pick of Bencic for the semis was excellent. 

As it was, I won in a romp because of Andreescu's title, finishing with 73.5 points to your 40 points. Hope to see you again for Aussie Open contest in a month.
