Good day, ladies and gentleman,

I hope most of you will know the rules already, but here they are just to make sure:

Pick a player each day. If your player wins, you advance to the next day and get to pick again. At the end, glory and lots of forum cred awaits the ultimate winner. If your player loses, you are out and eternal shame shall fall upon on. Each player can only be chosen once, so maybe don't pick your favoured finalists on the first two days. If the first set was completed and your player retires, it counts as a loss. If your pick withdraws or retires before the first set is completed, you can pick from another match that hasn't been started yet.

If matches are rescheduled due to rain, you are not allowed to pick it on the new day (e.g if Lorenzi-Nakashima is originally scheduled for day 1, but it rains and doesn't start on day 1, starts on day 2 are not allowed to pick it for day 2. You are however of course allowed to use it as your day 1 pick). If it comes to such a scenario, I will try to point out which matches you are not allowed to pick on the day.

Picks don't have to be made before all play starts for the day, but it naturally should be made before the match with your pick has started.

I hope that covers everything. If there are any additional questions, feel free to ask.

Are you required to wear a face covering when posting your selections Confused
Report SamuelMertensBertens August 29, 2020 2:16 PM BST
Depends on which country you're in and where you are at the time of posting.
I hope there are no corona cases or boycotts screwing things up for edy. Thanks for doing this.

As SaMeBe said, whether face coverings are required is depending on the legislation and the people around you. If you are in a UK internet cafe and the law mandates you to wear a mask there, please do so. If you are at home and your wife is fine with you breathing your germs all over the place, then I am also fine with you not wearing any face coverings when you post your picks.

Can you pick one player from each of the rival players organizations Confused
Report edy August 30, 2020 9:59 AM BST
You can select any player that is scheduled to play on any given day (apart from the mentioned rain rescheduling). I do not discriminate against the newly formed PTPA.

Does tonight mean the winner here has to share the title with Djokovic?
Report edy September 7, 2020 9:58 AM BST
Goffin kicks n88uk in the nuts, which means we have our champion! And it's not just anyone. It is one of our two defending champions confirming their elite status in our sport - milla446, who doesn't have to share their title with Djokovic, must've thought to themselves "I already got the women's singles last year. Simply repeating that feat would be too easy. This time around I'm going to casually win the men's title to show everyone I'm not a one gender wonder"

Congratulations milla, and hopefully see you, and everyone else, again at Roland Garros in just a few weeks!
