Re: Tennis Draw Challenge - Results & Discussion

Looked at our women's picks in Cincy:

Considering the four positions W RU SF1 SF2 http://www.tennisdrawchallenge.com/grou … cincinnati

the 18 of us picked a total of 13 different women in these 4 positions:
16 KaPlisk
13 Svit
12 Halep
11 Mugu
6 Konta
5 Keys
3 Kerb
1 Kvi, Ost, Steph, Kuz, Woz, VWil

Assigning a weight of W=3, RU=2, SF=1
36 KaPlisk
25 Svit
20 Halep
17 Mugu
11 Konta
7 Keys
4 Kerb
1 Kvi, Ost, Steph, Kuz, Woz, VWil

Weighting this per participant (e.g. BHP picked W=Konta (3*11) + RU=KaPlis (2*36) + SF=Keys (1*7) + Kvi (1*1) = 113)
195 TE, Drivers
190 Edu
185 AD
175 Snolly
174 Dtrain
172 Spotec
168 HTS
165 MF
155 Mike
153 Tom
144 Tono
138 Tenedab
137 arvis
134 aiur
117 dwight
113 BHP
92 CC

We'll see if our collected wisdom is a good predictor of success...

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge - Results & Discussion

So, the higher each "team's" weight is, the more common it is?

Champion: '16 Padme Cup, '16 Roland Garros Yoda Cup,' 16 Leia Tiara, '15 Lando Calrissian's Ring (250's), '15 GQ "The Green Anackin", '16 Trophy Case Award
Runner Up: '16 Rey Saber, '13 US Open Yoda Cup, '14 R2D2 Phoenix Crown.

I am my own daughter!

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge - Results & Discussion

Yes, exactly.  It also reflects how 'high' the pick was... more points for Winner picks than for SF ones...

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge - Results & Discussion

I had Federer all the way to title in Cincy and on my team and now i have a LL - any way to correct this - like when a player drops before playing first match you have the option to replace with own pick..???

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge - Results & Discussion

Unfortunately, once the first match is played, no one can change anything.  It's tough in a situation like this.

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge - Results & Discussion

My daughter joined TDC for Montreal & Toronto. Toronto Craig Loss, Sasha win. Montreal Craig Loss, Sasha Win. Someone is gloating (and has the hots for Mr Zverev)

Re: Tennis Draw Challenge - Results & Discussion

Hey Yoda Cup members - I'm looking for some people to help me test the new GSFT site. Basically it would involve creating a team and going through a mock tournament at a faster than normal pace to make sure all of the functionality works. Is anyone available to help with this? We would start the testing on Wednesday of this week and it would last a few days.
