    US Open 2020 - Mens and Women's Singles contest!

    It feels weird to be setting this up in August but this whole year has been weird to be honest.

    For those who have never participated in one of these before:

    There will be a separate contest for the men's and women's singles. This is a bracket contest that will start at the First Round of the Australian Open. The first round starts on Monday, August 31 at 11am locally EST. You'll have until the beginning of the first round to send me the link(s) to your bracket for the entire tournament. Keep in mind that you'll be choosing the winner of each match from the first round until the final before the first match goes off so leave yourself some time for deciding your picks.

    We will again be submitting our entries into a private pool over at The Tennis Channel but please remember that you'll need to enter their main contest pool as well if you want to be eligible for their prizes. I'll create the individual contest two weeks before the start of the tournament so keep an eye out for those.

    Entry fee will be 10 points for each contest and the top 10 from each contest will be paid. SBR has generously agreed to sponsor these contests again so you can pay me either in here or in the first post of the individual contest threads once they're made. Non Pros feel free to start transferring me 2 points a day now so you're paid up before it starts.

    Any questions, let me know

    Prize Structure:

    1st place - 1625 Betpoints
    2nd place - 1000 Betpoints
    3rd - 750
    4th - 500
    5th - 375
    6th to 10th - 150

    Wouldn't be surprised to see JJ as a wildcard!

    Seriously though I can't believe they're still holding it with so many withdrawals... will be interesting to say the least.

    I'm sure a few had Osake winning the ladies, but I'm guessing there was ALOT of red ink even on the winners brackets
