To celebrate Wimbledon 2012, with the assistance of BCM2, here is the tennis community competition for the tournament. Betfair are offering three cash prizes.

First prize - £175.00. Second price - £75.00. Third prize - £50.00.

All you have to do to enter is reply to this thread with your answers to the questions.

This competition is divided into four different sections.

Section A - overs/unders. Do you think the answer to the question will be over or under the stated number?
Section B - multiple choice. Choose your answer from the list provided.
Section C - prediction. List your answers to the question.
Section D - tiebreaker.

The winners will be the customers who predict the most correct answers and therefore gain the most points. If there is a tie for any of the prizes, the winner will be the person who is closest to the tiebreaker answer, with the next closest to the tiebreaker receiving second prize etc. In the event of a further tie, the prize will be split.

Only one entry per person permitted - if you do submit multiple entries, only your first entry will be considered.

This thread will be locked at 11am on Monday June 25th, so all entries have to be submitted before then.

The prize will be paid directly into the winner's Betfair account. Prizes cannot be collected or paid by any other method than a credit into the winner's account. Therefore you must have an active Betfair account to receive any prize.

Scores will be posted during Wimbledon, with the winner notified soon after the Wimbledon men's singles final.
