Wow, Chris! You rock!

Somil! outstanding stuff  :thumbs-up:

Thanks Babble, I;m so glad to have got the one I'd pick over all others  :) Rafa pulled it out big time for me today. I think I have won the bracket game as well but not 100% sure yet so is it you or Pawan thats going to do the final scores? That way I can see if I've completed my Wimbledon double  :winner:

Erm, is it just me or did I have a terrible final round and get none right? Damn. Anyway, congrats Chris and thanks for getting my picks in for me, shame that you didn't realise the picks I sent you were the ones I thought would lose, not win, so it turns out I got 5/5 :))

Thanks Borovnia  :) you got the one you'd most like in RG and I got my favourite in Wimbledon :yahoo: I'm not going to be on here long tonight so if you could do a final leaderboard that would be great, and then Kick can hopefully update the rankings as he knows how the points go  :)

Thanks very much Borovnia- all your work these 2 weeks is much appreciated  :) Just 1 point between us and the deciding match was the Rafa vs Fed- so what a match to round off a very exciting competition. I'm just glad I just about came out on top  :)

Borovnia, didn't you realise I actually got 149, as Chris put up the players I thought would lose onto here, so that's a bit unfair.

Lol, now I'm worried... :)~ I'm in Scotland for 2 weeks in the summer holidays so I might need to do a bit of texting. I don't think I'll have Internet access.
