Default US Open Tennis Prediction Game [MTVN & Jordan. win]



Once the US Open 2014 gets going and reaches the third round stage (final 64 people in each draw), I will allow you guys to predict the winner in each match, until the very end.

This is how it will work.. when it comes to the final 64 players in both the men's and women's draw all you'll have to do is predict the winner from each match and the number of sets it'll take for that player to win.

The Scoring:

2 pts - For every correctly identified winner in each match
5 pts - For every correctly identified winner in each match AND correct number of sets in match
10 pts - For predicting which Top 10 seed will be defeated in both fields
Bonus 20 pts - Predicting the winner before this Prediction Game gets underway. (10 points for each correctly predicted Champion)

Current Draws:

Mens Draw

Nishikori vs. Cilic

Womens Draw

Williams df. Wozniacki - 6-3 6-3

Members:
Women's Draw winner wins this award:
Male's Draw winner wins this award:

I'll keep tally for both during the game.

N/B: GIVEN THE TIME DIFFERENCE WITH NEW YORK YOU SHOULD ENSURE TO PREDICT THE NIGHT BEFORE PLAY. THE SCHEDULE OF PLAY WILL BE ANNOUNCED EVERY EVENING. PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE PREDICTED IN TIME TO AVOID MISSING OUT ON POINTS.

First Top.10 Seed to Fall

Marc - Berdych & Jankovic
BigSister - Tsonga & Wozniacki
Shaun - Tsonga & Kerber
MTVN - Nishikori & Radwanska + 10pts
Jamie585 - Ferrer & Wozniacki + 10pts
Novo - Nishikori & Bouchard
Lucas - Nishikori & Wozniacki
wannashag - Berdych & Ivanovic + 10pts
Jordan. - Berdych & Wozniacki
IheartBB - Nishikori & Jankovic

Forgot to ask you guys to predict which male and female seed you think will be knocked out first.

To make it a little more difficult I will ask you to predict which one of the Top 10 seeds in each field will fall first; and it doesn't have to be in the first round (if in the case of more than one top ten seed falling in the same day I will still award points).
