The Nitty Gritty.
You get 5 points for each correct pick, plus you can earn bonus points.
  +1 point for picking a winning unseeded player
  +1 point if an unseeded player beats a seeded player, or a seeded player beats a better seed.
  +1 point for guessing a winner and the correct number of sets. No sets bonus for walkovers, or retirements unless more than 1 set played for women and 2 sets for men.
A losing pick earns 1 consolation point if the match is a nail biter (i.e. 5 sets for men, 3 sets for women).
Double points will be awarded in the Finals (except for bonuses).

If you forget to make a pick, you will be randomly assigned a Lucky Dip selected from all remaining players. Lucky Dip picks do not qualify for bonus points!!!

The Winner is the punter who scores the most points overall and will receive a genuine US Open Players Towel and be crowned the US Open.

The top points scorer in each of the men's and women's draws will also win US Open gear. A lucky draw prize will go to a random punter who has made a pick in all rounds. Limit one prize per punter.
