The first event of the inaugural WTA Draw Challenge is in the books, and Luke Anderson of the United Kingdom got 64 of a possible 95 picks right for Indian Wells, making him the Event Champion.

Register and make your picks for Miami, the next event in the Draw Challenge, right here.

Luke got 22 of 32 first round picks correct, a solid though not spectacular start. A key pick there was Camila Giorgi beating Andrea Petkovic, as Luke picked the Italian to go all the way to the fourth round, which she indeed did.

Luke did some real damage in the second round, picking 24 out of 32 correctly, including mild upsets of Varvara Lepchenko over Daniela Hantuchova and Annika Beck over Elena Vesnina.

Luke got 10 out of 16 right in the third round, most notably Giorgi's shocker over defending champion Maria Sharapova, as well as Flavia Pennetta's victory over Samantha Stosur, Eugenie Bouchard's defeat of Sara Errani and Alizé Cornet's win over Carla Suárez Navarro.

Luke correctly picked five of the eight quarterfinalists - Li Na, Pennetta, Simona Halep, Jelena Jankovic and Agnieszka Radwanska. And he got three of the four semifinalists right - Li, Halep and Radwanska.

Luke didn't pick up any more points from there, but he already had enough of a lead to clinch the title.

A four-way tie for second place saw Serenitynow of Canada, Omar of Italy, Christopher of the US and Benjyno of Canada each record 62 points. Serenitynow and Omar each correctly picked Radwanska to make the final, Christopher was accurate in predicting Li and Pennetta to make the semifinals and Benjyno got Li and Halep reaching the semifinals right.

The WTA Draw Challenge will continue with the Sony Open Tennis in Miami. The draw is already out, so register and make your picks if you haven't already. You can also play the WTA Draw Challenge later in the season at Road To Singapore events in Madrid, Rome, Montréal, Cincinnati, Wuhan, Beijing and at the BNP Paribas WTA Championships - Singapore.
