Thanks very mfor updating that Borovnia so quickly  :) Seems like it could be down to 3 of us now then, and 3 Brits at that!
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

Thats great thanks Borovnia and we will do  :)

Gasquet (I'm 4th, why not.)
Djokovic
Kiefer
Nestor/Zimonjic
Bjorkman/Ullyett


These were your picks, doesn't look like Dlouhy/Paes to me, or am I in the wrong round?

Oh yes, you are correct  :)) It's not like it'll make much difference though, and I just made risky picks this round.

Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.

Okay, scrap my above picks, I guess we'll be PMing our picks. Chris has probably won, but me and sid will be having a playoff for 2nd place I guess. PMs to Borovnia? That's where mines going.

I'm going to wait until the leaderboard to be updated but I know Sid is still right in with hope, needing just 1 more right pick than me, and I think you Murrayfan will need 2 right and me to get both wrong. The risk you both run if you gamble may be getting caught from players behind(although its quite a big margin to the top 3 this tournament), but the reward could be a title.

I've sent my PM to Borovnia with my picks, and I think from what I can remember the gap is big enough if we wanted to take risks.

I think you've still got every chance of 1st/2nd or 3rd as the doubles match is hardly going to be a risky pick whichever way you go. The Singles a little more so but with that anything can happen too.

Well I'm guaranteed a top 3 placing now so excellent ranking points but now I need to really get 2 wins later today to makesure I take this title. Rafa and Nestor/Zimonjic played a big hand in my Wimbledon win so could they do the same here! Thanks Borovnia for keeping us updated  :)
