Nadal
Nestor/Zimonjic

Sid I actually feel pretty bad for you as that pick was right of Nestor/Zimonjic but you were an hour and 10 minutes late so its not going to count  :( It finished 5 minutes after you'd made your picks so you'll only have Rafa for this round.

Has Borovnia not put up my picks? I actually also sent him a PM with my picks as Nestor/Zimonjic and Nadal, hopefully he can clarify when he's online. So sorry sid, but it looks like I'll be overtaking and getting runner-up here as well.

Thats great then if you've gone with Rafa too Murrayfan as that means I've won the title here :yahoo: as I went with Rafa but the Bryan bro's so overall you'll take 2nd with Sid in 3rd, and I'll take back to back titles  :)

Sounds excellent Sid with the fishing as I know how much you love that- you were certainly up early to do it  :) That's something I've never ever tired in my life- fishing. Yeah its good you get to see the Mens Final here and I'm sure you'll be challenging once again in Cincinnati this coming week  :)

Yeah you're always very good in the Pick ems so now surely you have got to have a good interboard challenge as well- maybe Cincinnati will be a turn of fortunes in that game for you  :)

That looks very sweet to me :yahoo: :grind dance: thanks very much for being so quick doing this each day Borovnia and for the congratulations  :) Strange how I had so many near misses in the first 7 events and now I've won 2 on the bounce at Wimby and then here in Toronto, I'd like to make that a treble now in Cincy  :)) Also excellent ranking points for the standings! If Kick doesn't want to update the Yearly rankings during the next couple of days then I'll add the Toronto points on instead.

Nice one Chris, you're doing really well this year and I'd just like to remind myself that if I'd gone with head over heart in Rafa vs. Murray, I would've got this title.

Thanks Murrayfan  :) Yeah that was a key match in this one for sure. Rafa has won me 2 titles now in a row so he really is my man when it comes to this  :)
