The Tennis Tragic #045 / The Upset Game / David introduces the world to The Upset Game: a fantasy Grand Slam tennis experience where legions of devoted fans select five upsets per draw in the pursuit of glory. Will Cornet defeat Raducanu in the first? Will Evans defeat Cilic in the third? How might Soon Woo Kwon reach the quarterfinals!? We think it could be more interesting than picking Rafa and Iga to destroy all who stand against them. We'll find out! Much as we'll find out how Serena (and Venus?) get along in her (their?) final US Open. We won't find out how Novak Djokovic gets along, as he's kicking his feet up at home, happily and tragically un-vaxxed.

The Upset Game rules:

Pick 5 potential upsets in each singles draw (men and women).You get one point for each successful upset picked multiplied by the round (1 point for a first round upset, 2 for second... up to 7 points in the final). There are two types of "upsets" you can pick:

  • 1. Any time a lower-ranked player beats a higher-ranked seeded player. If you're picking beyond the first round, you have to pick both players.
  • 2. An unseeded player reaching the quarter-finals or better.
