This Prediction Contest consists of two parts

In the first part of the Contest, you are predicting only winning players for First, Second, Third and Fourth Rounds, not scores.

To do that, you have to Copy/Paste or Type the name of the Athlete from the first Column (named First Round) into appropriateCells in Columns named First Round WinnerSecond Round WinnerThird Round Winner and Fourth Round Winner.

NOTE: When you Copy/Paste or Type the names, PLEASE, make it sure that the names you are entering in empty cells are THE SAME AS THE NAMES IN PREDICTION DESIGN TABLE. In other words, if you have "Caroline Wozniacki (2)" in first column, you should have "Caroline Wozniacki (2)" through your draw, and not "C. Wozniacki" or only "Caroline Wozniacki". If you see only "Novak Djokovic (18)" PLEASE, don't write "Novak Đoković" or "Novak Djoković" Just copy/paste as you see it. 



Women's Singles

First Round First Round Winner Second Round Winner
Anna Blinkova (Q) Taylor Townsend (WC) Caroline Wozniacki (2)
Taylor Townsend (WC)
Yulia Putintseva Caroline Wozniacki (2)
Caroline Wozniacki (2)


Scoring system for the first part of the Contest:

For each correct First Round Winner you will earn      - 1 Point

For each correct Second Round Winner you will earn - 2 Points

For each correct Third Round Winner you will earn     - 4 Points

For each correct Fourth Round Winner you will earn   - 8 Points

You don't need to have both players correct for a particular match in order to earn Points.

If any match finishes with walkover - it won't be counted.

If any match finishes with retirement of one player, it still will be counted.


In the second part of the Contest, which starts with Quarterfinals, you are predicting both - a Winner and a Set Score for each match. From Semifinals onward, you will predict Men's Doubles, Women's Doubles and Mixed Doubles matches as well.

To do that, you have to write in empty Cells a number of Sets won by each Athlete (or Doubles Team). If your prediction is that Athlete 1 is going to win, you should type appropriate number of Sets won by that player (3 for Men's Singles, 2 for all other categories) in appropriate Cell of A1 Column and do the same for Athlete 2 of that match-up. If your prediction is that Athlete 2 is going to win, then do the same accordingly.

If any match finishes with walkover - it won't be counted.

If any match finishes with retirement of one player - you will earn points only for correct winner.


TB Rules

If two or more contestants have the same number of points at the end, Tie-Break rule will be applied to break the tie.

Number or perfect predictions from Quarterfinals to Finals will be compared for the involved contestants. If involved contestants are still tied, number of correct winners from Quarterfinals to Finals will be compared, then number of correct Fourth Round Winners, and so on.



Contestant 1: 4, 8, 9, 3

Contestant 2: 4, 8, 8, 4

Contestant 1 will be placed ahead of Contestant 2.


Contestant with most points wins the competition.


The Ranking is determined by the Sum of Points the Contestant scores in all predicted Matches.


You can enter the Contest whenever you want. The moment you post your predictions is the moment when you are entering the Contest and your points will be calculated for all the matches you predicted AND which haven't started. 

In order to earn points from the start, you should post your predictions before the start of the first match of the Tournament - May 27th, h. 11:00 (GMT +2).


You can EDIT your predictions whenever you want until the start of the first match of the Prediction Design Post. Once competition starts, you are not allowed to edit your post and any further changes will be ignored. On contestant's request, edited predictions will be accepted, but contestant will earn 0 points for finished matches and the matches that have started. Moment at the latest editing will be considered as the entry moment, in other words. 


Qualifiers: If it happens that the main draws are already known, but qualifiers are yet to be determined and their placement in the draw, you can fill in the draw according to the Rules (meaning - you are putting in Qualifier 10 if Qualifier 10 appears in the first Column).

Once qualifiers are placed in the draw, I will put the names in Prediction Design post. If there is still time to edit your predictions, you are allowed to do so.

In Tennis there is always possibility of Draw Changes because of late Withdrawals. If there will be such late changes, all "new"1st Round Matches involving all moved Athletes will not be counted. It means you can receive Points for right predicted 1st Round winning Athlete only if the Match started with both Athletes from the Prediction Design Table.

You will be allowed to edit your Predictions (if you want) for the 2nd to 4th Round Matches involving moved Athletes, but only before the start of the first Match of the 2nd Round. All other editing will be ignored.
But please - before you edit, send a PM to the manager, otherwise editing will be ignored completely.


You can fill in Men's and Women's Singles Draws in separate posts if you want to.


If you want to comment on this Prediction Contest, please use Prediction Contests - Discussion Thread only.


If you have problem with the format, you can post your predictions in simplified format. Also, if the forum is down, or you cannot access the forum for any reason, you can send you predictions on e-mail: Make sure your predictions are understandable. For instance, S. Williams 2-1 means Serena Williams wins 2-1. Williams 2 means nothing. And please, write your Totallympics username so the contest manager can know who actually sent predictions.


Every contestant MUST HIDE own predictions. To do that, you have only to delete the space between the bracket "[" and the text "hide" in "[ hide]" at the beginning of prediction post. Do the same with "[ /hide]" at the end of prediction post too. The hidden content will appear to other users as follows:


This post has been hidden. Only the user who posted it is able to see the content


If you have any other questions concerning this prediction contest, problems with format, editing etc... please, contact the contest manager via Personal Message.
