Rafa or Gasquet vs Djokovic or Murray (this one is hard.  I think I'll wait until these are finished, then I'll come back and post my winner)

Simon vs Kiefer (Simon has to run out of gas eventually, right? :whistle:)
Nestor/Zimonjic vs Dlouhy/Paes

Somebody is using tactics with this one Sid  :rofl_2:

Hi Chris it was not that,id just come in from being in town.Now in this who would use tactics :rofl_2:

I'd use tactics if it was going to help me win. I often try to anticipate what picks others will go with  :))

It clicked as well Sid that you haven't even gone with your man Murray  :whistle:

lol I bet you wish you'd gone with your man over Djoko now  :)) but I wonder now that you've gone with Murray whether or not I'll do the same or take Rafa once again after he won the Wimbledon title for me and never seems to let me down  :)) Uhmm I lot of thinking needed to be done I think.

Lol I think you're just waiting for me to do my picks so you can see the field :)~ I believe I'm the only one other than BGT to pick my man Andy over Djokovic :)) That helped me in the leaderboard a bit.

Rafa vs Murray (for the Championship)
Simon vs Kiefer
Nestor/Zimonjic vs Dlouhy/Paes

Since I'll be around the whole weekend, if after semis you 3 are still close, you can PM your final matches (singles and doubles) picks if you wish

Yeah, he's performed extremely well thus far, and if he can beat Djokovic, probably his toughest opponent, I don't see why he can't beat Nadal. I think he has a good chance at winning the Masters, and if he beats Nadal, that'll be good for us on here and on the interboard, as it means Nadal pickers won't pull ahead too much. I was one of the only 2 people (BGT too) that had Murray beating Djokovic, and it really payed off!

By the way Borovnia, just to check. Somil had 23 coming into the round, and he got Kiefer and Nestor/Zimonjic right, so shouldn't he be on 31 not 27?
