The latest forum competition, this time it’s for the US (Tennis) OPEN:  PLEASE ENTER ON THIS THREAD

Sorry it’s so late – gathering the information took much longer than it should have and some of it came through a bit late.
 
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, £60, £30 and £10, 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 Maran Cilic reach – or Will he win?
In his 9 appearances at the US Open, he’s reached R1, R2, R3, R4, QF twice and SF twice and WON once.
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 Gael Monfils and Jeremy Chardy. Put Monfils’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 Monfils 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, Federer, Del Potro, Murray & Nadal.   And Women: Kerber, Kuznetsova, Sharapova, & 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 29, 21, 18, 32. games
4 points if correct, 2 points if wrong by 1 and 1 point if wrong by 2

G. How many  RUSSIAN WOMEN will get to the last 8 of the Ladies singles:
There are 11 Russian players in the main draw currently (none in the 7th  8th yet – If you get what I mean unless a qualifier gets in there). They are: Alexandrova, Blinkova, Kusatkina, Kuznetsova, Makarova, Pavlyachenkova, Rodina, Sharapova, Vesnina, Viklhlyantseva, Zhuk
Unless I’m mistaken - which is quite possible – 2 of them are seeded.
Choose from 0 - 8
2 points for being right


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 12 players whose surname begins with a B 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 B who can still be added:  but, IF I HAVE MISSED ANY OUT OR ANY FURTHER PLAYERS WHOSE NAMES BEGIN WITH A ‘B’ ARE ACTUALLY TAKING PART THEY WILL COUNT
Although I don’t think I have.
Baghdatis, Basilashvili, Batista-Agut, Bedene, Bellucci, Bemelmans, Benneteau, Berankis, Berdych, Berlocq, Blancaneux, Brown.
1 matches in Round 1 is an  ‘all B’ affair, if successful that far, there would be 2 more in round 2
So, Choose a number between 0 and 9
2 points if right.

K. Which of these 10 players will progress furthest in the mens singles? Thiem, Dimitrov, Tsonga, Goffin, Isner, Bautista-Agut, Carreno-Busta, Sock, Kyrgios, Berdych – (seeds 6 – 15)
3 points for being right.


L. Which of these 10 players will progress furthest in the womens singles? Cibulkova, Ostapenko, Kvitova, Mladenovic, Keys, Sevastova, Vesnina, Garcia, Pavlyuchenkova, Vandeweghe (seeds 11-20)
3 points for being right

TIEBREAK :
How many Aces will there be in the Mens final? Previous finals 2012 – 2014 (I can’t find the stats for the last 2) yielded 12, 11 and 9.



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 sort it.
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 4.00PM, Monday 28th August.
No more will be accepted after this time. AT ALL

Good Luck everybody and enjoy the Tennis.

Studyform, firstly, appreciate the effort you have gone to for this competition, must have been time consuming putting it together and will be even more so running it, should get some decent entries in later today.
Secondly, I would only like to play along for fun, give the prize to second place if I win (genuinely), not because I'm ungrateful but I can only get peanuts on the sportsbook, I mean very small peanuts.

now that Murray, who was seeded no 2, has withdrawn the draw has been reshuffled a bit and they made previously unseeded Kohlschreiber seed 33 (Instead of seeds being 1-32 they're now 1 + 3-33). So how will the following 2 questions be decided?

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.

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.


For question b, are the top 16 seeds now considered 1 + 3-17 (16 players) or just 1-16 (15 players)
For question h, are the top 32 seeds now considered 1 + 3-33 (32 players) or just 1-32 (31 players)

I think something similar has happened in the past, so there might be precedence, but I don't remember what was decided for that one. Just figuring it'd be a good idea to throw this out there now before the tournament has started so there's no misunderstandings or arguing later.

I think the latter should apply. (out of 15 and out of 31)

If it's possible, I'll get the OP changed.

On B. I assume Querrey doesn't count. There are only 15 "top 16 seeds" now with Murray's late withdrawal. It will be same for H as I'm pretty sure there's a 33rd seed in the draw somewhere because of Murray's late withdrawal.

Thank you for running the competition STUDYFORM.

Aaaaaannnddd... They're off!

The smallest field for any competition ever.
Reasons:
Late information available for me to set it up so less than 3 days to enter.
A depleted forum - sometimes hard to get on to
It's the US Tennis Open which is always the quietest competition anyway.
The threads weren't stuck to the top.

SO. As there are only 29 entrants, I won't put the trends or other details.
I'll just post the entire entry grid.

This is the biggest chance any of us have ever had of winning a prize.

eh?
I did say from the very beginning the time entries had to be in.

As it started at 4pm on Monday, I thought that was about fair.
It doesn't take very long for seeds to start doing badly or retiring injured, for example, also Cilic was playing early.

Sorry you missed it nofx.

Hi Studyform, Caramba got the gist of my remark (cuz he knows me so well now LoveLove). I sort of meant 'deadlines in life', in general, and me subsequently always missing them. Obviously you don't decide when US Open starts and had no choice in the matter whatsoever

I'm seething out of my pants about not winning yet another quiz, but reluctantly congratulate all of you now that your chances of winning -my- 60 bucks have increased by at the very least tenfold

Mes btw, may he never ever win this quiz, is just being mean intentionally. but it's true, I did snozt and lost

Anyhow thanks for running the competition, hope you do one again in future and good luck! Happy oh and if you do win remember: betfar will try to skim you and pay you these 60 in Euros so don't let em. money is money, right

Ah, yes nofx, misunderstandings are the reason I never really use social media (except for the BF forum)

I hope to do more in the future - It isn't just Tennis. Also Golf, Cheltenham, Darts, Snooker, Footy, so keep a look out, you'll always be welcome, but they will be better attended than this one is. Next will be World Darts, just before Christmas.

1st update.
Some bad weather on day 2 held things up a bit.
But things are happening:

Section D: Gael Monfils won the 2nd set v Jeremy Chardy 6-3 on his way to a straight sets win.
So that's 3 points if you said 6-3, 1 point for 6-2 or 6-4

At least 8 seeds have gone from both the mens and womens 1st round and the 1st round is still being played!
Loads for you to keep watch on.

Some of the 'names' are falling by the wayside.

The 'B' men are not exactly covering themselves in glory but the Russian women are doing marginally better.
Although the highest seeded previous women's winner is out (Kerber) another previous champ, (Sharapova) beat the 2nd seed!

I'll update the scores in the morning.

Thomas Berdych just got beaten too, which means only 1 player (either Brown or Bautista-Agut who play each other) with a surname beginning with B will be in round 3.

I don't think technically it is a double barrelled surname because unlike double barrelled surnames, as is Iberian tradition, they are not hyphenated which means he simply has two different surnmes rather than a conjoined surname, i.e. double barrelled.

There were 6 which scores 4 points, predictions of 7 or 5 score 2 points, going for 8 or 4 - 1 point.

Section C - Same thing, for women.
There are 7 of them still in as I type.

Well, the womens final was as one-sided as it was unpredictable, and it only contained 15 games....

NO-ONE went that low, nor even as low as 17, which would have been worth 1 point.
So NO scorers in section F.

Only 1 section left, everyone in the top 5 has picked the same thing for it. So as there is a tie for 1st it all comes down to how many aces there are in the Mens final.
casemoney predicted 14, mesmerised predicted 15.
Nearest wins. So it's quite neat.
ooO{Alpha Centauri}Ooo will finish in 3rd and win a £10 bet. well done to you.

mesmerised, your earlier sentiment was noted and I will enquire as to what can be done, whether you win £30 OR £60.

I'll put the complete table and information on here after the tournament end.

So enjoy the final - the spread is 14.5 aces.
Report mesmerised September 10, 2017 12:19 AM BST
With a 6ft 8 inch servebot in the final, the chances of a fairly high ace count is....high, Anderson once hit 40 aces in match against Djokovic at Wimbledon, Novak being the best returner in the game, though that went the whole way, Nadal is more of a 5-6 aces per match sort of player, as it's the match of his life I'd imagine Kevin will be more focused than ever because he knows he will need all the free points he can get on that big serve, the downside of being that tall as a tennis player is points played are short on return, he's not winning many rallies with movement being more restricted than Nadal's, the lord gives with one hand and takes with the other. Without preempting the tie break result to jinx the outcome (because a poster on a gambling forum has that sort of power of course), I'd hazard a guess it'll be over 15, think even in a straight sets loss Anderson can get over a dozen aces with Nadal's customary 5-6.

If Betfair say that I could have the 30 or 60 quid on anything, tell them I don't want it anyway, with me out the equation, Casemoney should win 60, Alpha 30 and Badjoe 10, Kind Regards.

Astonishingly - well under on aces in the final, which flew in the face of the joint leaders prediction.
Makes you wonder how they won. Laugh

Anyway, Mens only (reminds me of a magazine I read as a teenager) was the answer to section E. With Nadal flying the flag for highly ranked players in the event.
Even with Anderson managing 2 aces in his last service games there were only 11.

So the total and overall scoreboard is below.

Casemoney is the winner of the competition on 16 points, most of which were won early on and will receive a £60 sportsbook bet as 1st prize. Congratulations.
Mesmerised, despite his spirited effort was let down in the tiebreak and is deferring his £30 prize - I'll inform BF. Well done anyway.
which means
ooO{Alpha Centauri}Ooo with his 13 points, now wins £30 instead of a tenner well done to you too, you're a star.
badjoe, a point further back, in 4th will cop a bonus £10, good luck with it.

A shame the competition was poorly attended, there were various reasons and I think it was an anomaly. Still 29 of us had a little more fun than we would have, and I finally got a top 20 place.

Thanks all for taking part. The next one will be DARTS - Just before Christmas. Please keep a look out for it.

one place from prize money Cry (although I may have been in the same boat as mes since bf doesn't allow me to place bets on sportsbook)
thanks for hosting the comp, studyform.

Well done winners, I predicted Anderson would get about dozen aces in straight sets loss, looks like I was just two short, it was lost because Nadal who usually is good for 5 or so got just 1. Still losing on tie breaks is ironic as I though this had a tie break in it with a serve bot playing. If only Carreno Busta's mum's maiden name was Carreno instead of Busta as the father's surname comes first, I'd have won Laugh

Thanks for running STUDYFORM, pretty sure Australia would be popular, there's usually more forum activity at the start of a season.

Most popular forums are Football and Horse Racing forum, maybe it'd be worth advertising on there to drum up numbers.

Kind Regards.
