  1. No, it will be too much with so many matches and I don't want to complicate my life (and the contestants' too)
  2. Concerning rankings - for me the fun part is to count the medals won. Points are just for those who love statistics more. @Henry_Leon no worries, miscellaneous contest won't be that big. Around 20-25 events would be enough,
  3. Tennis Australian Open 2018

    I can't believe how Fett lost it I just hope it's not Wozniacki's Kerber 2016 run This bottom half of women's draw is really weak. Both top contenders have been playing poorly. Svitolina's quarter is even weaker now. Hopefully Svitolina and Kostyuk can get evening session, curious to see how young Marta will perform when not affected by the heat. Kumkhum can be dangerous in that pert of the draw as well as Martić... And for Woz, one of the Baltic girls, Ostapenko/Kontaveit/Kanepi. In the meantime Grisha... Mackie is pretty solid though
  4. Concerning general standings for 2018, I had an idea that the points should be awarded according to the number of participants. For example: if contest has 40 participants, 40th place is to be awarded 1 point, 39th place 2 points and so on until we get to the half of the total number of participants. Then, 19th place should have 2 points more than the 20th... with difference between 10th and 1st gradually increasing and with 1st ranked getting 80 points (for each contest, max points = 2*number of participants). With this way, we award the winners at the big contests. It is harder to win when there are 50 people competing than 20. What do you think?

  7. Tennis Australian Open 2018

    More or less expected results. Especially in the women's draw. To be honest, I was wondering how much Kostyuk had left in tank, but she delivered! Bellis was kind of disappointment but again, Kiki revenged unexpected loss at the French Open Sock losing was surprising (and Vandeweghe among women's seeds). Anderson too., But we all know that current ranks in both ATP/WTA do not represent real measure of talent and skill.

  12. Tennis Australian Open 2018

    Marta Kostyuk from Ukraine (AO junior champion last year) qualified for main draw and will be the youngest player in the draw, first one from 2002 generation! What a talent! I thought Xinyu Wang would carry that title, but Marta overcomed higher ranked and experienced player in the qualification all of them with 2-1 victories (Arina Rodionova 9th seed, Daniela Seguel of Chile and Barbora Krejcikova). She will play Peng in her MD debut.

    I am especially looking forward to Tsitsipas - Shapovalov and Berdych - De Minaur matches. I hope young Alex has something left in the tank after two great weeks. Would like to see Rublev beating Ferrer but his execution must be very good otherwise David will make him run like a rabbit.

    Angie Kerber to play against Barty in Sydney final! Excellent line-up. It is so great to see Angie back! Hopefully she will be fresh enough for deep run in Melbourne too, but she does have hell of draw there...

    And I like the way he plays! Must say, I didn't have great expectation, especially not so soon after watching him in Wimbledon junior final last year, but he improved immensely! I hope Aussies will finally produce a talented player with proper mindset. Tomic and Kyrgios have been, well...

  19. Tennis Australian Open 2018

    Match of the first round: Maria vs Sharapova Now, my view of the women's draw: Section 1: A strong one. Halep-Kvitova in R3 breaks my heart. I am afraid Simona will be too much for Petra at this moment. Intriguing match between Barty and Sabalenka. Sabalenka has such raw power and on a good day can beat almost any top player. Barty is very skillful player and should find a key to neutralize Sabalenka's power and make her move, for the later being pretty bad in defense. The key in this match is Barty's mentality and ability not to break under the pressure being a favourite and at home. Giorgi this weak is on fire and if she keeps her momentum (which I doubt) can make some damage and reach R4. There are also other two of my favourite players But both Osaka and Jabeur have been bad so far and I don't expect either of them in R3. All in all - Halep should come through as a quarterfinalist from this section. Section 2: This section is also interesting one. Still not sure how much Konta is injured, but things don't look promising. Should be able to reach R3 but there is crafty Strycova. Safarova showed some good tennis in her match against Angelique in Sydney, so R3 for her is expected where she should be encountering another seeded Czech, Pliškova. Karolina struggled against Cepede last year at the French Open, but on hard, I expect her to be convincing. Haddad Maia (I like her!) has a rematch with Cabrera but should be able t beat her again and is definitely capable to put a big fight against Pliškova. My pick is definitely Pliškova as most likely quarterfinalist from this section. Safarova and Strycova being serious tests. Section 3: Muguruza must reach R4 with her draw! But the bottom half of the section! Kerber showing great form in Perth and Sydney so far, almost 2016 GS level, with new coach, improved serve, bh, being more aggressive and sort of a first-strike player, is something very good to see on WTA these days! She'll probably overcome Friedsam and Vekic and then comes R3 against either Sharapova or Sevastova. The Latvian does have beautiful game but somehow her emotional meltdowns seem to be rather a disadvantage. She can beat Sharapova again who still cannot find her form. If Kerber does not overplay and peak too soon in Sydney during this week, I can totally see her in R4. Potential quarterfinalist.... in this order: Kerber>Sevastova>Muguruza>Sharapova Section 4: We all already saw Mladenovic breaking her losing streak in Sydney... Anyway, Bogdan is not that easy to beat, so I expect another dramatic match from Kiki and let's hope this is the end of her agony. Putintseva-Watson is no betting zone match definitely Keys should make R4. Lucic-Baroni is still bothered with injury and her form is questionable. Rogers is a tricky player and we can see last year semifinalist going out in R1. Sasnovich played beautiful tennis in Brisbane. And if she is able to repeat it, R3 here we come. My fave, Vondroušova, had bad second half of 2017 and played quite poorly (except in that match against Kuznetsova at USO). What bothers me around her is her attitude sometimes. I hope she can be motivated enough cause she has very winnable opening round and I'd like to see her pumped up against transformed Garcia. Garcia's form is unknown quantity and I hope her back is okay now (the reason she withdrew from Brisbane). If she's healthy, ball-bashing delight in R4 is upon us. Most likely quarterfinalists: Keys>Garcia.

    I wouldn't be so sure about Cilic, there is Simon floating around in R4

    Giorgi played one of here best matches in career! Nothing alike her, she kept ball in court, and had less unforced errors and less winners that Kvitova! Great win, and another winnable match against still not in form Radwanska. Petra's serve was worrying in this match, I hope she can serve better in Melbourne. Draw will be tough, but so called top 10 players are not such a threat.
  22. As Sindo said, AO will be missed this time as we are focusing on Winter Olympic Games. But we still have enough GS tournaments left Also, there won't be Jolly in 2018; scoring systems for Ice Hockey and individual sports and contests where we are predicting medal winners remains unchanged. However, some alterations in scoring systems for other sports prediction contests may be implemented during the year.
