Welcome to Tennis NZ's Aussie Open picking game.

The challenge is to pick one winning player in each round of both the Men's and Women's singles.
But there is a catch! You must pick a different player in each round.

You need to Log in to play.

If you've just discovered the game, sorry but you're too late to play. :-) Take a look around and come back for the next game. Email the Umpire to get a reminder.


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.

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 Aussie Open Players Towel and be crowned the Legend of OZ.

The top points scorer in each of the men's and women's draws will also win Aussie 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.
