The latest forum competition, this time it’s for Tennis’s US OPEN:  PLEASE ENTER ON THIS THREAD
 
This is how it works:
There are 12 sections You have to pick 1 player, score, round, or number (depending on which section) for each one. The scores for each selection are listed below.
Just put the letters A to L with your choice for each - preferably going downwards, followed by a tie-break answer.

There is a prize, which Betfair have kindly donated – a total of £100 in Sportsbook bets.
This will be broken down into 3 prizes, £50, £30 and £20, for the top 3 competition finishers.

In the event of ties, a tiebreak will come into effect so there should be an absolute winner (and 2nd & 3rd).

The Sections: and some details/clues/history

A. What round will Stanislas Wawrinka reach – or Will he win?
In his 6 appearances at the US Open, he’s reached R1, R2, R4, QF twice and SF.
Choose from R1, R2, R3, R4, QF, SF, F, Win.
2 points for being right.

B. How many of the top 16 Mens seeds will make the last 16?
Choose from 0 to 16
4 points for being spot on, 2 points if 1 out, 1 point if 2 out.

C. How many of the top 16 Womens seeds will make the last 16?
Choose from 0 to 16
4 points for being spot on, 2 points if 1 out, 1 point if 2 out.

D. What will the score be in the 2nd set of the 1st round match between Andy Murray and Nick Kyrgios. Put Murray’s score 1st
So a score from 0-6 through to 6-0 (not forgetting 7-6 or 6-7) with the 1st number being the number of games scored by Murray in the 2nd set of this match
3 points if correct, 1 point if 1 out.

E. Will previous winners win the Tournaments (Men’s singles, Womens singles, both or Neither
Previous winners taking part are:
Men: Cilic, Djokovic, Federer, Hewitt, Murray, Nadal.
Women: Kuznetsova, Sharapova, Stosur, Williams (S), Williams (V)
Please put Men, Women, Both or Neither
2 points if correct

F. How many Games will be played in the Womens final – in total?
Choose from: 12 to 39 The last 4 finals have provided 18, 32. 28 and 17 games
4 points if correct, 2 points if wrong by 1 and 1 point if wrong by 2

G. How many  SPANISH MEN will get to the last 8 of the Mens singles:
There are 12 Spanish players in the main draw currently (none in the last 8th yet – If you know what I mean) plus 5 more in the final round of qualifying as I type.
3 points for being right
Choose from 0 - 8

H. How many of the 32 Mens seeds will be Knocked out in the 1st round
Choose from: choose from 0 - 32
4 points to correct predictions, 2 if out by 1, 1 point if out by 2.

I. How many of the 32 Womens seeds will be Knocked out in the 1st round
Choose from: choose from 0 - 32
4 points to correct predictions, 2 if out by 1, 1 point if out by 2.


J. How many of the 9 or 10 players whose surname begins with a D will still be in the mens singles in Round 3?
This is the full list, I don’t think there are any qualifiers beginning with a D who can still be added: Darcis, Delbonis, Dimitov, Djokovic, Dodiq (if he qualifies), Dolgopolov, Donaldson, Duckworth, Dzumhur and Daniel or Donskoy (who play each other to get into R1)
No matches in Round 1 or 2 are ‘all D’ affairs unless one of the qualifiers has to play one of those already in.
So, Choose a number between 0 and 10
2 points if right.

K. Which of these 10 players (seeds 10 – 19) will progress furthest in the mens singles?
Raonic, Simon, Gasquet, Isner, Goffin, Anderson, Monfils, Dimitrov, Lopez, Tsonga.
3 points for being right.


L. Which of these 10 players (also seeds 10 – 19)  will progress furthest in the womens singles?
Suarez-Navarro, Kerber, Bencic, Makarova, Bacsinszky, Radwanska, Errani, Svitolina, Petkovic, Keys.
3 points for being right

TIEBREAK :
How many Aces will there be in the Mens final?
3 Previous finals have yielded 19, 7 and 12.



Other stuff
E&OE – Any ties in any sections, points shared; (eg, if the score is 2 points for 3rd, 1 point for 4th, and there's a tie for 3rd, both will score 1.5)
If I’ve made any glaring errors, please let me know, and if they can be rectified or sorted, I’ll do my best to rectify and sort
The organiser's (that's me) decision is final. I'll try to update scores and standings at the end of each Section’s completion.


Entries accepted until 3.00PM, Monday 31st August.
NO MORE WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER THIS TIME.

Good Luck everybody and enjoy the comp and the Tennis.

There is no doubt that I will annihilate the field and win this competition as I do most comps, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for taking part anyway, @STUDYFORM, I'm not interested in the prize money, give it to second place, 50 quid wouldn't even cover my hair gel, plus I'm banned from the Sportsbook.

I don't know how that works Rob_T_B, but feel free to join in anyway.
I wouldn't have thought, mesmerised, that £50 in sportsbook bets was of massive interest to anyone much, not just someone of your standing.
And, yes, there are some questions that are a bit random, it's deliberate, so everyone, not just aficionados like yourself, can join in.
However, good luck, I'm sure most of us will be watching how you fare with a tiny bit of interest. Especially bb66.

studyform, for question I, how does that work with Maria Sharapova? She was seeded but withdrew before the tourney (and replaced by a non-seed) so she's not technically knocked out in R1. It says we can choose from 0-32 but does this mean we pick from 0-31 since there are only 31 seeds now?

Dunnit.

47 entries, not terrible given a depleted forum and short notice and this being the 1st comp since Cheltenham, so a better than usual chance of winning!!!

The picks and full table:

A. What round will Stanislas Wawrinka reach – or Will he win?
32/47 picks are for him to reach the Quarters most of the rest say Semi.

B. How many of the top 16 Mens seeds will make the last 16?
1x6, 1x7, 1x15 the rest in between 10 is most favoured.

C. How many of the top 16 Womens seeds will make the last 16?
1x6, 2x7, 1x13 - a fair spread of those in between.

D. The score in the 2nd set of the 1st round match between Andy Murray and Nick Kyrgios. Murray’s score 1st
Only 4 of us think Murray will lose the set!

E. Will previous winners win the Tournaments (Men’s singles, Womens singles, both or Neither
8 people think a "previous" man will win along with a "New" woman The rest went for "Both"

F. How many Games will be played in the Womens final?
anywhere from 17 to 30 will suit SOMEONE

G. How many SPANISH MEN will get to the last 8 of the singles:
Collectively we don't think the Spanish men will do all that well. 1 pick for 3 everyone else, less

H. How many of the 32 Mens seeds will be Knocked out in the 1st round
anywhere from 1 to 10, but no more, or not many points

I. How many of the 32 (31 apparently, now) Womens seeds will be Knocked out in the 1st round
anywhere from 3 to a single 12 for this.

J. How many of the 9 or 10 players whose surname begins with a D will still be in the mens singles in Round 3?
1x6, 1x7, the rest between 2 and 5

K. Which of the 10 players will progress furthest in the mens singles?
Of the 10 named, 4 were only picked once, and 1 not at all.

L. Which of the 10 players will progress furthest in the womens singles?
At least all of them got a mention.

I'll try to update as each section finishes, doubtless someone will keep an eye on me too Wink

Report STUDYFORM September 2, 2015 8:53 AM BST
The 1st round's concluded, so here's the 1st update and leaderboard.

Section D: Murray v Kyrgios, Set 2, (I should have said set 3), he won it 6-3.
6-3 = 3 points, 6-2 or 6-4 = 1 point.

Section H: Mens seeds KO'd at the 1st hurdle (nice mixing of metaphors there). There were 3.
Including Simon and Monfils, who won't now be winning any points in section K.
The points awarded therefore are 4 if you picked 3, 2 if you went for 2 or 4 and a single point for 1 or 5.

Section I: Womens seeds gone in R1. They fared worse than the men. 10 of them went out.
Including Suarez-Navarro and Bacsinszky who also won't be getting those of use who chose them any further points.
A prediction of 10 gets you 4 points, 9 or 11, 2 points and 8 or 12, 1 point.

There are just 4 "D's" left, but one of them has to play Federer and another is Djokovic, so I'm predicting a low number, which is what everyone did anyway.
There are 9 Spaniards still going, but 8 of these are in the top half of the draw, which means the highest possible number is a not very likely 5.

Nearly everyone has scored something in this competition..... nearly......

Sole virtual leader is pumphol. with 34 pts still available at best, badjoe and 6 others (including caramba and myself) currently on 5 can get to 32 at best. curious-cat with a potential 24 and triby22 and yyyy with 25 at the bottom of the list.

Brilliant stuff, bb66, I've missed your analysis.
Report bb66 September 3, 2015 1:47 PM BST
My calculation for the bottom of the table was wrong, yesterday, as I've missed to deduct STUDYFORM 3 pts for his Simon pick, which made him last on 23, he remains there today with 21 at best 1 pt down to curious-cat. Only Dimitrov's defeat changed the picture yesterday affecting 2 questions, pumphol., anubis7 and Muntz Street now joint virtual leaders with a potential mmaximum of 32, pumphol. still having an edge on already secured 7 pts.

It's very likely nobody will be scoring on question J with Darcis (facing Fed tonight) being the only one left beside Djoker, and noone having picked less than 2.

Another crucial match will bbe Makarova vs Svitolina on Friday.

Just Mr Djokovic survived to carry the flag for the D's as far as Round 3.
No-one went for only 1 so no points for anyone in section J.

More updates when they happen.

Incidentally, I haven't been keeping up with Tennis of late, can someone tell me what all the "Retirements" are about?
I've never noticed so many in previous events.

Lots of update today.
Wawrinka's still in and if all goes to form, he should be playing Murray in the 1/4 final.
The remaining 2 Spanish men could be up against it to make it to round 2.
Of the 10 listed MEN 5 are still in, but for the WOMEN only 2 remain; Keys (who has to play Serena Williams) and Makarova (who doesn't).

Interesting to see Johanna Konta of GBR (well, Australia with Hungarian parents and training in Spain) getting to the last 16. Also the lesser known Estonian Anett Kontaveit who is even more of a surprise to have got so far.
If only they can keep the improvement going, though it is pretty unlikely, the womens final could be:
Konta v Kontaveit (fnarr fnarr)

Anyway;
SECTION B: 9 of the top 16 mens seeds made it to the last 16, and only
SECTION C: 4 of the equivalent women did the same
Interestingly the No1 seed in both competitions would seem to have relatively easy run-ins as the top halves contained the most seed battering so far.
The scoring was 4,2,1 in both sections.

Virtual leaders are the same with 23 pts at best, but those 2 are followed by the_don (hoping for Keys to beat Serena) and TheNorfolkMafia having picked Makarova, both 1 pt behind.
Report STUDYFORM September 7, 2015 8:18 AM BST
2 more sections are complete now.
G. Just the one Spaniard in the last 8 (Sombreros off to Feliciano Lopez).
If you predicted 1 it's 3 points for you.
L. None of the ladies 10th - 19th  seeds made it to the last 8. Makarova and Keys being the last survivors but going out in R4 means anyone who picked either of them gains 1.5 points.

4 questions are still unsolved, 2 of them with big majorities on the same result, but Wawrinka reaching the SF still could cause a major shake up, while foe question K the matter if there is a dead heat result will be crucial.

Well well well, The 4 remaining men (section K) all bit the dust in the 1/4 finals.
Gasquet, Anderson, Lopez and Tsonga will each gain 0.75 points, which could be crucial in the final reckoning.
Mr Wawrinka's performance will be vital too. Not least because he's the only one of the last 4 men left who isn't a previous winner.
As opposed to Serena Williams, who's the last of the 4 left who HAS won it before.

So now, as we approach the climax........

Some of the biggest turn-ups of all time in the women's event.
An all Italian final between the 26th seed and an unseeded player, both of them in their 30's, the top 2 seeds both being KO'd in the semis, and a new winner looming.
Amazing scenes.
Which, what with a Djokovic/Federer final means (to quote an old nudie mag) Men Only for E, 8 of 47 picked that, (odds of nearly 5/1)
2 points.
Stan made it to the Semi, so another 2 points if you predicted that.

All this means that at not before 3pm (not before 8pm for most of us) we'll be counting the games played in the ladies final,
Uno, due, tre, Quattro etc....

Here is your last update before the final result of the competition is known; later this evening. Unless we have to count the aces in the Men's final to use the tiebreak.
As Pokermonster said (on chit chat) a 3 way tie.... exciting stuff!

If I had to predict it now I would do it at the upper end, but those who predicted the highest numbers (28 - 30) are already out of contention being too far behind, so Pokermonster (25) nand BARROWBOY (27) might be favoured, but it's even possible nothing changes at the top of the leaderboard if the final goes to a decing 3rd set and 3rd hour.
