So this was the idea for Wimbledon I mentioned at some point during the French Open.
Depending on how many are interested it will be either round robin format or knock-out format.
Regardless of this all matches are one vs one.
For each day you get 100 wettquotens to use on two different markets by using Betfair exchange (commission free for the purpose of this) or sportsbook.
Can be anything from 99 on one market, 1 on your other market to 50 on each market.
Bets can be anything as long as it's on Wimbledon singles that are scheduled for that day.
Before 11 am UKT each day picks will need to be sent to me via PM. Once bets are in I will publish them on the forum.

So let's say the match is wisewords vs SamuelMertensBertens.
Wisewords' bets for the day are Sloane Stephens (80 wtq) to beat Mirjam Björklund at 1.33 and Cornet (20 wtq) to beat Ostapenko 2-0 at 7.00. Sloane wins her match, but the Cornet 2-0 bets doesn't come in. Wisewords's result is then 106.4 wtq. (80*1.33)
SamuelMertensBertens places a bet on Samsonova (50 wtq) against Zheng at 1.85 and another one on Kudermetova (50 wtq) to beat Swan by -3.5 games at odds 1.9. The Samsonova bet comes in, the handicap bet doesn't. SamuelMertensBertens's result is 92.5 wtq. (50*1.85)
Wisewords wins the match.

For void bets, Betfair rules apply.
Let me know if you are interested and I will post closer to the event if there's enough interest, I think we will need to be at least 8 players. I have played this format before. It's fun.

is this a throw back to the old ATP-UTC comps, with stakes on selections, I'm in anyway. Maybe consider using that old formula, 800pts for the two weeks, 100pts a day max on 5 selections.

no, I've never heard of that one. Sounds fun, but I'll use this format, because I'm familiar with how it works and it sounds like less work for those playing.

if people are fine with me playing I'll do so. I'm fine with just hosting, but it might be needed to make up the numbers. I'll send my picks to someone else via PM before I get them if so. Or we both send picks for that match to a 3rd person.

you don't remember these comps, in which I finished a gallant 5th back in May 2011

no I only played the Masters comps which was also odds related.

not much interest in this, so not happening. Thanks those of you who wanted to play though.
