I'm running this for Aussie Open since our great leader is busy with other things these two weeks.

Pick a player each day. If your player wins, you advance to the next day and get to pick again. At the end, glory, lots of forum cred, an entry into the competition's hall of fame awaits the ultimate winner. If your player loses, you are out and eternal shame shall fall upon you. Each player can only be chosen once, so maybe don't pick your favoured finalists on the first two days. All picks count if one ball has been played. If your chosen player withdraws before the match, please try to submit a new pick. I understand however that not everybody can monitor this all day long, so if no replacement pick is submitted, the favourite in the match that starts last will be entered automatically.

If matches are rescheduled due to rain, you are not allowed to pick from them for 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 instead...you 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.

The picks continue every day until only one person is left, everyone has been eliminated, or the tournament has finished.

Picks don't have to be made before all play starts for the day, but it naturally should be made before the relevant match starts.

If multiple people reach the same day, they will share the same spot in the final standings.

Rule changes compared to the 2022 US Open edition: None!

I hope that covers everything. If there are any additional questions, feel free to ask and lets join me in prayer that there will be no weird things or controversy happening.

Whether you're already through for day 2 or pending, for day 3 pick a R2 match that is played Wednesday (top half).

Good head to head match to finish on. When Wolf went 2-1 up in sets Aaron must have fancied his chances!
Well done Grant.
