Ok i will make the call on Robredo and Soderling,this one pick will not count,but in the next round we will have one more pick added than the norm.The extra pick will carry what points your get for round 3.Please go easy on me for this,but i think this is fair for other players on t4y.

Ahh man and this was one I had quite lot of confidence in getting it right lol

Thanks Chris :whistle:

You've made the right decision Sid as picks were only out 2 hours before the match started, so that is a bit too short a period of time  :)

I'm guessing Kiefer-Simon picks are void, Kiefer has been replaced by Rajeev Ram (LL). Ram actually served for the set against the in-form Frenchman but sort of choked and lost the first set in a tiebreak.

Should that result not count then? I agree there, since we were picking for a different match

Thanks for the update for the first round Borovnia  :) Yeah the Kiefer match is best to be made a void with him having to pull out.

Right then so we've had to void a lot of picks... For the 3rd round we will have to add in plenty of doubles matches I think.
