You can't really say that based on 2 picks that I got right and you got wrong :)~ (Gulbis and Kohli)

Its not just based on those 2, its based on being mid table before this round and all the others i have now so does nearly everybody else so im going to be a long way off the pace. Also may worst finish this year is 4th and its going to take a miracle to get close to that position here now.

Gulbis
Djokovic
Federer
Nadal
Kohlschreiber
Murray
Bryan/Bryan
Bhupathi/Knowles

Djokovic & Federer are not playing good,from what iv seen thay might go down.I feel these are the 2 hardest picks.Seppi so far has played great here,Karlovic has the bomb of a serve,99% i would have Roger 2 win V Karlovic.ATM i feel both matches could go eather way.Chris you near had me to go against the no 1 & no 3 seeds.



That would have been a huge call Sid  :)) I agree completely what you've said about both- right now they are harder to pick than they were just a few months back. Should be very interesting.

Hi Chris,even though i did not back my thoughts,i was right on one seed.Dame i just had that feeling thay could be beat.Well Roger today anyway.

Buphathi/Knowles vs Iner/Fish, I picked Bjorkman/Ullyett to win this match!  :rofl_2:
if I am in time to change my pick, the match will get underway in 5 minutes I pick Buphathi/Knowles to win. it doesnt matter if this pick is void for me, Fish/Isner will win.  :rofl_2:

I cannot update leaderboard for 3rd round results, and won't be around until sunday night. Could I please ask for automatic picks for me for semis and finals, taking the higher rated?

Did my pick for Bhupathi/Knowles still count, as I said if Bjorkman/Ullyett won then I'd pick them but if not then I'd choose Bhupathi/Knowles.

Karlovic v Kohlschreiber
Djokovic v Gulbis
Murray v Moya
Aspelin Murray v Erlich Ram
Bhupathi Knowles v Bryan & Bryan or Fyrstenberg & Matkowski
Dlouhy Paes v Nestor Zimonjic
