Er, I know I'm a beginner at this but should the tennis singles be allowed to count? Seems a bit odd that tips are allowed after the comp has started and some players have already been knocked out. Just asking.

Some tips 'cut in' at different levels, usually between the heats/preliminaries and quarter-finals. It may make it a bit easier, but there is still plenty of other sports to make sure that the difficulty level stays high.

It makes it a lot easier to predict that Djokovic won't win after he's already been beaten! But no matter, tis only a game, even if it's not cricket. wink
